Cateye just announced the availability of their new “Uno” headlight. This looks like a fantastic little LED light that should make a great backup or “be seen” light. Specs as follows:
- Flashing and constant modes
- 60 hours run time in flashing mode
- 15 hours run time in constant mode
- Runs on 1 AA battery (included)
- Water resistant
- 400 Candlepower
Prior to the Uno coming out, my favorite backup headlight was the Cateye EL-410. The Uno is over twice as bright and runs on one AA battery instead of the EL-410’s three AAA batteries. Gotta’ love the ever-greater efficiency we’re seeing with modern LED emitters.
