    Rechargeable light with replaceable battery?

    I am looking for a good commuter light that will work on the country roads that have no street lights.

    I would like a USB rechargeable light that has a replaceable battery so I can carry an extra. Anything out there like that?

    I am not too crazy about trying the Chinese lights, I want a company behind the product.

    Looks like the Lezyne Mega Drive is what I am looking for. Any others out there like it?

    I have had good luck with Li Ion flashlights using standard 18650 cells. Extra batteries are cheap!

    Using LED flashlights for cycling

    I am finishing up a project where I am using a flashlight withy 26650 cells. The larger cell will pretty much eliminate the need for me to carry extras. Just need to do a little more testing and take pictures, then will post. I had to modify a handlebar bracket to handle the larger light and want to make sure it holds up.
