One of my credos is "Don't be a dick"
. I try my best to live by it. When I learned there were bike headlamps available with a 'cutoff' so you don't blind oncoming cyclists and drivers, I perked up. This is one of those headlamps, made in Germany where it's Das Regel.
All headlamps are required to have a cutoff aus Deutchland.

So, I found them at Peter White Cycles

|I can carry recharged NiHMs with me, or...|
|...I can charge the NiMHs right in the lamp.|
I bought one at first, but found that like many batteries, they hate the cold and they drained quickly in freezing weather. I found myself without a headlamp on dark rides twice.
I bought a second one and made sure I would carry charged NiHM AA batteries as a backup.
