I weighed up a lot of lights. Too many.

The more expensive ones were all usb rechargeable with lithium ion batteries but they didn't last long enough for a light that I could depend on at weekends etc.

This one is perfect! It operates from 4 rechargeable (supplied) batteries and throws a light that I can only compare to a car light on full beam when pointed straight ahead.

When pointed towards the floor in front of the bike it lights up everything fine and I was using it on its lower setting.

It comes with its own charger which I've not had to use yet, so no removing batteries to charge.

As it operates on 4AAs they are easy to replace, charge in multiple locations and last far longer than lithium ion.

So far, so good. Just make sure it's the EL540RC that you're considering buying!

Provides decent light for a 4xAA battery light, but compared to many Li-ion battery based lights it is quite bulky (not that it's going to put me off - but if you are looking for something bright and light there are better options out there).

There are some nice practical implications of the controls:
hold button down for 2s to switch on or off
double press button to switch to or from flashing mode
press button once to switch between high and low settings
all that means that you can switch between high and low without having to go via "off" or "flashing" - so you'll never lose sight of the road and other traffic users should have no cause to lose sight of you.

It's still a bit fiddly to control when wearing winter gloves, but then what light isn't?

First, the light is about £25 cheaper than elsewhere, which I thought was a really good deal. Then it came way before the estimated delivery date, so that was a nice surprise. And although it says rechargeable, it accepts normal batteries as well.

The 540 is much brighter than my old Cateye EL530. The thing to note is that it doesn't throw a round beam, but projects a rectangular block of light. Initially I found that strange but it does spread out the light to the sides.

Great for commuting!
