Good handlebar light system as well

As far as my nightly commute home goes, I was getting by with the Planet Bike Beamer 3 LED light. It was alright as about 75% of my way was lit by streetlights and the rest had enough ambient light for me to get by, but I kept hitting this one giant pothole on a dark corner. Finally I ponied up for the minewt mini and have been very impressed. The light output of the minewt blows away that of the beamer: I've tried them side-by-side on a dark road or just inside facing a wall you can't even tell that the beamer's on if the minewt is on. I suppose I shouldn't have been surprised given the price difference, but I was. And I haven't hit that pothole since.
