Cheap eBay Lights
#21
There are a couple that I've seen which look like they maybe smaller then my Smudge XML which is what I'm after for on my lid.

There are lots of sellers listing this light all from China and for £22 if it gets throught the winter you cant complain.

Good spot Wayne Wink

Doesnt look that much smaller to what I currently have based on the pics on the bar.  I'll them and see if they can send me some dimensions.

I don't get what you are saying. Are you trying to say Andy is moonlighting and secretly selling lights from Portsmoth? Don't be ridiculouse.

Stayhigh65 has found the type of light I have just got and I will see if I can find the link for the buyer I used.

This one is £30 and at least claims to be UK stock, UK warehouse etc... how bad can it be for £30? even if it's nowhere near the claimed 1600Lm it's still fairly amazing... I still think my old Magicshine 808 and '900Lm' torch zip tied to my lid are fantastic...

I guess it depends upon how you'll feel if it burnt your house  down whilst charging...  These cheap lights don't have over-charge protection so can get very hot & can catch on fire whilst charging. Just make sure you keep in in visual contact when charging

Now that I have to leave my bike outside the building (all be it in a locked store cupboard) I wanted to get some cheap lights I could leave on my bike, so I took the plunge a brought a cheap ebay light.

Ordered Friday and turned up today. Look good so far, leads all in tight, well as much as I was prepared to pull anyway.

I will report back after a week of use (assuming my house hasn't burn down).
