I'm looking seriously at lights, and my dream would be a set of K-Lites. http://www.klite.com.au/ But at $729 for a set, that won't happen too soon.
On the other end of the spectrum is the following (which includes free shipping). A work mate ordered some LED torches through this website & has been really happy with them.
What kind of experiences have you guys had with cheap/expensive lights? If a $39 light lasted through winter, then blew up, I'd still be happy!
