    $30-$50 AA-battery light suggestion?

    I already have a L&M HID, and an overvolted Cygolight for serious rides, but I need a cheap light for my POS errand bike. I want something that will last for 50 hours on a set of batteries, so I won't have to recharge every couple rides.

    I already have the Cateye EL500 (rated at 800 candlepower) which I'm pretty happy with. Cateye now has the EL530 rated at 1500 candlepower, but the reviews on it aren't too good (no reviews on the EL500, so I can't compare the 2). Anyone try both of these? If not, I'll just get the newer EL530 and return it if I don't like it (I hate doing that).

    Any other comparable lights that run on AA batteries?

    Thanks all.

    A little out of your price range but the Apex by princeton tec is pretty nice. I'm not sure on their product line as it only shows it as a hiking type headlight on their site but I have demo'd them before mounted on the bars and helmet. Not sure how candlepower relates to anything else.
