New Light Suggestions

Postby Downundercaver » May 20, 2012 4:24 am

After 4 years of using my Petzl Due LED 5 I am thinking it is time to buy a new light. But there are so many lights to choose from!!! My price range is in the $300 range but thinking about getting a helmet and light package like the elios from Petzl so i could end up spending more. Also i dislike helmet lights with the battery pack in your backpack, i like the batterypack on my helmet. Just wanting to know what everyone else has and any recommendations.

If you already have The Duo I would get the newest 400 Lumen Custom Duo insert and put the leftover money in the piggy bank. Also if you do not have Eneloops rechargeable batteries I would get those and a La Crosse BC 1000 charger to charge them. If you have only 4 years on that Duo it is not even broke in yet. Mine is 18 and still going strong with the updated inserts.
