    Bicycle NiteRider TriNewt bike headlamp?

    Bicycle NiteRider TriNewt bike headlamp?

    Sorry Darrell, I have to disagree. I just called them up and asked. Their sales dept said they were Seoul LEDs. (Of course it might help when I told them I worked in a bike store).

    Twice the Run Time and Brighter… B90 Upgrade

    My 2 cents: The initial charge tops out ~72 minutes. That's still 22 minutes above stock. If I get to the battery, I can reset the charger and get another 23 minutes. Sooo, if I'm lazy, I get a 44% increase. If I spend 30 seconds to reset the charger, I'll get 90% increase over stock. More...
