Hi Guys, New to the state and suddenly found myself needing lights, Can anyone please suggest a deceny middle of the range light (front and rear) that will not break the bank. Would prefer something easily chargeable. By the same token is their any specific light to stay away from?? Thanks in advance

There are plenty of threads (hundreds) on lights littered throughout this forum. Do a quick search and read a few of them. when you have abit more infomation under your wing then fire a few more directed questions and i think you will get more useful feedback.

otherwise i use ayups on the front V2 intermediate/spot. and superflash 1/2watt on rear.

169 plus postage.

3 levels with flash and adjustable beam.

Stay away from anything that hasn't been on the market for long enough to get a reputation for reliability or isn't from a brand with a track record of delivering such. A noname light that's just turned up this year is a lucky dip. Search forum for trustfire for an example that meets this.
