I don't like there website much. Flashy and all but difficult to navigate & find your way around. Maybe I'm just a ludite.
Prices seem really good but no dimmable option. I don't know if one is needed though with 6 hours runtime.
Ayup say they are using Luxeon III leds. Woopee!!!!!!!!!
Luxeon III are old technology and only put out 80 lumens @1000ma.
A Cree XR-E Q2bin puts out 93 lumens @350ma and is supposed to put out 200 lumens @ 1000ma. The Seoul P-4's have an output of up to 240 lumens @ 1000ma.
The only bike lights being manufactured at the moment that I know of that is using the Seoul P4 LED's is http://www.nightlightning.co.nz/endurenz details.htm
Their batteries are ridiculously expensive though. Get them from either www.masterinstruments.com.au or www.batteryspace.com.au
If you aren't confident in swapping the connectors over, I'm sure you would have a mate that can wield a soldering iron.
