Don't throw it away when the battery goes bad.
As anyone who uses USB-rechargeable lights knows, their convenient, rechargeable lithium-ion batteries begin to diminish in capacity with each cycle and eventually your super-bright light becomes dimmer and doesn't last very long. Blackburn has solved this problem with the Central 700 USB-rechargeable front light with a replaceable battery pack.
The Central 700 includes a Universal Mounting System mounting strap that mounts to bars or a helmet at a wide variety of angles. The light is also compatible with popular action camera mounts.
Micro USB rechargeable. LED fuel gauge/charge indicator. Charging cable included, no tools required. Lithium-ion battery. Waterproof to IP-65 standard. 6 hour recharge time. 172 g.
High 1.25 hours at 700 lumens

Pulse 16 hours at 150 lumens
Strobe 9 hours at 150 lumens

I have rear and front lights in all my bikes, even for daytime use (main purpose is to be seen by drivers). Hence the light has to be strong to be visible during the day and this Blackburn is.
Yet I needed a light that could be mounted under the clip-ons of my tri-bars... Almost all light has to be mounted perpendicular to the bar, while for clip-ons you have to have the option of a longitudinal mount, which this one has...
