Looks a lot like these $5 flashlights I see on ebay all the time. http://www.ebay.com/itm/240-lumen-Q5-Cycling-Bike-Bicycle-LED-Front-HEAD-LIGHT-Torch-LARM-With-Mount-/350846807508?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item51b0196dd4

Really, I have one like it. It's not a bad commuter light and it uses commodity batteries. However, i wouldn't pay $40 for something like this. I'd save my cash and buy a cygolite metro for a couple bucks more.


Too add, I've seen these on Amazon Canada for about $7. You get the mount extra and you're lit up for well under $10. My own light is a slightly bigger flashlight with a Cree LED and rechargeable 18650 lithium ion that claims 10W. I don't quite believe it since it's only about as bright as one typical auto headlight, but it only cost me $25, which is much less than any of the name brand cycling headlights with more than 1W of power.
