Smart goes HID !

BikeMagic report : Smart lights have, up until now, been known primarily for inexpensive offerings, but it's upping the ante with its first foray into HID lights. The Smart HID is a very tidy bit of kit, housing the lamp, electronics and battery in one quick-release bar mounted unit which is ideal for commuters. The battery slides out and drops into a docking-station style charger. You'll get a claimed 3hrs on low beam and 2.5hrs on high. The light unit and battery weighs 417g, which isn't at all shabby. It's a penny under three hundred quid, which in today's light market somehow manages not to look bad in the value stakes. Posted by Picasa
