    Best AA or AAA powered light

    I already have a Niterider Minewt X2 dual for me and Cordless 150 for my wife which are great for the night riding we currectly do, but i plan on doing some mountain bike camping later this year. For this i would like to find a couple somewhat good AA or AAA powered lights that would also serve as backups. Any suggestions?

    I'd get a single AA torch (I have a couple of Romisen G2s which are nice) and a velcro cinch strap to attach it to your helmet. They're as bright as a lot of LED commuter lights, smaller, cheaper and you can use it for a torch when you set up camp.

    After doing some more searching last night i think your suggestion is the way to go. Its small and lightweight too, should work well as a backup.

    Thanks alot.

    no problem. I have 2 and I like them both a lot. I keep one in the car and one on my bedside table Pretty good price too, ~$12 from DealExtreme, 3-4wks for delivery though.
