Light and Motion's Stella 500 Light is a light for practically any occasion.
Small but bright, the Stella 500 emits 500 Lumens at its highest setting, which should be enough to tackle most rides. With its bevy of settings, the Stella 500 is not only super bright, but can also bring it down a little to better suit the needs of various rides and riding conditions. The 500's rechargeable battery can be easily stowed in a jersey pocket and will power the light for up to 24 hours, plus once its drained it only take 2.75 hours to fully recharge. For a little piece of mind, Light and Motion also scientifically tests the outputs of their lights and publishes them, so you can rest assured that they actually shine with the claimed brightness.
Along with the light, the Stella 500 comes with its rechargeable battery and associated charger as well as helmet and bicycle mounts.

Good Commuter Light
This is a great commuter light. I like to use mine as a helmet mounted light so it points where I'm looking.
Compared to the older Stella 300 the light is much more dispersed. Given the 200 extra lumens you don't see that much difference in intensity because of the more even coverage. I also prefer the 3-cell battery, however, the 2-cell is small, light weight and works well (good for commuting).
