As a keen cyclist, the LED lights are great. No more charging batteries every couple of days, a set of akalines last for weeks, in the back lights.
I have been adapting a wind up LED torch for the front light this year. A couple of minutes winding gives me half an hour of light.
One of the best inventions ever. ;D

I have been doing some comparisons on different torches, when you put a modern led light next to an old regular bulb torch the difference is amazing. Add battery life into the equation and it's easy to see why they are so special.
