NiteRider MiNewt 150 Cordless
The NiteRider MiNewt 150 Cordless is pretty much exactly what most commuters need. It’s a reasonably high-powered LED headlight that’s self-contained and recharges via a standard USB cable (or the provided wall mount charger).
The internal lithium ion battery runs for three hours on high (150 lumens), four on medium (110 lumens) and six on low (65 lumens). The translucent on/off button doubles as a power meter, glowing green when charged, and red when the battery is getting low (15% charge or less).
The quick release handlebar mount easily fits 25.4, 26.0 and 31.8 handlebars, and it really is one of the easiest on/off systems I’ve encountered. I have noticed the hinge pin slipping off to one side once in a while, but it’s easy to push back in, and hasn’t resulted in any problems on the bike.
The MiNewt 150 Cordless retails for $99 and includes a lifetime warranty on all mechanical components, two years on electrical components and 180 days on rechargable batteries. Visit www.niterider.com for more info.
