This torch-like light can either be used alone or with an optional add-on Li-ion battery pack.
With anything under £100, your power options will always be limited and the run time on the Whitelite is comparatively short, but the quality of the beam is good. Although there is a definite centre spot, it has a reasonable spread and the tone is even, making it easy on your eyes.
With a simple bracket it represents a relatively low-cost entry into night riding (just don’t be throwing yourself down anything too technical or unknown at speed or you’ll outrun your power source). You can increase the run time to seven hours with the battery pack, but the extra £80 takes the combo into a new price point with frankly better lights. Our advice? Buy the light and not the pack.
