From 10 years ago light function, weight has gotten so much better. I once had a super heavy Cat Eye Stadium that was RRP of 1200AUD.

Have used them a few times over the last couple of fews & they've been a ideal replacement. Haven't used them in the wet, though the ebay ad claims '100% waterproof design'.
I ride Altona Meadows to Melb cbd & back. These lights at low beam are adequate for my commuting which involves riding before/after dawn/sunset. My commute is 30% bike path. I also use them for road rides in the dark & high beam is extraordinarily bright when needed.
The flashing mode is so fast it's fit-inducing, and I rarely use it. I use these lights to see, rather than be seen.
Only issue I have with the new lights is the cords on the light & battery are very long & have to be bunched up, somewhere. Still working on best set up.
Matt, What does it weigh?
ebay says 118 grams which I highly doubt.
I believe that weight is just for the light itself. Probably few hundred grams more with the battery. I'd suspect total weight is around 300-400grams, similar to what's stated by nitelights here.

Not necessarily. Thanks to a lead from MattyK, I picked up one for half price from http://www.roseversand.com/article/phil%20...%20aid:409750. Paid $75 including shipping and it arrived in two weeks.
