CatEye Hybrid HL-EL020 Headlight
If commuting to work isn't enough to green your life, may we suggest the Cateye Hybrid Headlight? It uses a nifty, high tech, super-sustainable solar panel to recharge your light. We know, the solar powered flashlight joke is old...but this really works. Just make sure the solar panel is facing up, leave your bike in the sun and the battery will store enough juice to keep you riding all night.

          Comments about CatEye Hybrid HL-EL020 Headlight:

          Gimmicky solar feature. AA battery powered light is too weak and does not illuminate much.
          Included manual was in German or something. Had to go on the Cateye website for the English manual.

              the device charges poorly and the battery is too small.
              it might as well be a AA operated light no solar

                      My bike is locked up inside all the time which means that there is simply not enough light to recharge the battery so I bring the light into my office to recharge. Even two days in decent office lighting was not enough to get the battery to recharge enough to provide more than 10 minutes of light. I had high hopes but this light is not going to cut it for winter commuting.

                      Installed on a Catrike Trail. It took some modification of the mount and using parts from a front reflector mount to set it up on this bike. It works good. Doesn't interfere with my cup holder (for long camping trip rides) and really gets driver attention. Nice price. Nice light. I hope it lasts as well as it might.

                      I rode though a long dark tunnel with this light and it was very hard to see where I was going. It works well in flashing mode as a way to make your bike more visible to oncoming traffic. It would be nice if it had a couple more LED lamps (it only has one) and a USB port to recharge the battery for days when it is cloudy.

                            Nice design with solar charge panel on top, but mine came with instructions in German. I found English instructions online, but in tiny print, so hard to read.

                                The headlight is very easy to take on or off of the bike to charge in a window if your not getting enough light in the day. I take a lot of comfort knowing that I have a solar and a backup battery for a long ride home in the dark.
