If you are a Night Rider, you gotta see where you are going!

You gotta love the NiteRider MiNewt Mini-USB Plus Bike Light ‘cause it’s the first bike light you can recharge either from the USB port of your PC or any wall outlet. The MiNewt Mini-USB has a Li-ion battery and you can easily mount this little beacon just about wherever you want. The MiNewt Mini weighs just over 6oz (175g) but it is no lightweight when it comes to power with its LED producing over 110 lumens for up to 3 hours. Included with your purchase is a 4.5-hr Smart Charger, handlebar mount (fitting up to 31.8mm bar), helmet mount, and a 36-in extension cable.

Here's what others have to say...

This is Item #NRI0095 and it is $103.96....

This is Item #NRI0095 and it is $103.96. It has the word "Plus" in the item title. The Item #NRI0094 is only $64.97. It is the NiteRider MiNewt Mini-USB Bike Light. What is the difference between these 2 lights (besides the price)? I have a looked at the descriptions and I used the compare feature. They appear to be the same. The compare feature had slight differences, but when you check the detailed description and fill in the blanks, then they match exactly. I'm confused. Can someone help?

With the Plus model you get a 36" extension cable and a helmet mount. So if you plan on mounting it to your handlebars the normal one will be great.

killer LED light for the trail, or for the helmet

i rarely ride on the trails at night, but its small enough to bring when a ride is unknown, and can go epic. if it gets dark, no problem. this light is bright, a large flood for full trail coverage, battery lasts long, and mounts securely. I use this alot on my motorcycle helmet even for seeing around the corner before the headlight gets around the corner.

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.

Power-Packed Minimalist LED System

NiteRider makes the toughest, most efficient LED systems available. Period. This means more lighting power for a longer period for less bulk & weight.

I have spent a lot of time researching "Real" LED systems for my helmet and the MiNewt is the best value I have found. The 80gm head is barely noticable on my helmet and 110 lumens is plenty of brightness for most trail rideing when paired with a decent handlebar system.

What wattage would this equate to? How much area would it cover?

The NiteRider Minewt Mini USB Plus Is a great helmet mount light. For some double track and some less technical single track that is all you need for lights. As for area covered a safe bet would be 25-75 feet and that all depends on a couple variables. It a 110 lummens brighter than most of the old turbo cat lights.
