Solar Bike Light

solar-bike-light.jpgLook out pedal powered dynamos! It would seem that solar has recently decided to join the fray, when it comes to bicycle lighting. This water repellant, streamlined light works as torch (flashlight) but also comes with a bracket, so it can be fitted to your bike. We’re not informed how much sun exposure is required for a full solar charge, but run time is said to be 15 hours, running on rechargeable AA or AAA batteries. The beam comes from three LED globes, which have an expected life of 10,000 hours. Transport Trends forwarded us this tip, having found it themselves at HippyShopper. Available for £20 at ::Ecotopia UK
