Does anyone know if this light is more flood than spot? I'd like to mount this on my MTB bars for flood coverage, and use a helmet mounted light for spot. The avg night ride we do is around 2 hrs on trail in the woods so the battery life and lumens are fine on dual range high. I like the self contained part because the water mottle mount on my bike is under, and I don't like a wired battery in my camelbak.

I have to leave this comment on every bike light but I feel I am doing a service to riders so here it goes again. These bike lights which don't have removable batteries are only commuter lights. They are probably great for going from work to home or visiting friends however longer routes are out of the question as you can't depend on it to last you whole night. And no, lowest mode even though can push for some hours is nowhere near bright for long distance cycling. More to the point after couple of years once battery starts dying you have no other choice but replace perfectly good functioning light. Nitecore does seem to make this light easy to disassemble but I wouldn't count on it. My advice is get something like Fenix BC21R, which runs on 18650 battery. This allows you to swap the battery on the fly and provides similar performance to this one. Also, you can get a lot of information about other bike lights on bikelightdatabase.com (am not affiliated, just found it useful).

If you're doing such long distance night rides that batteries are a concern you should be on a hub dynamo. 2 hours is more than enough otherwise.

My point is that you can't reliably know how much charge you have left as battery deteriorates over time. Having a replaceable battery is a benefit no matter how you look at it. Lithium Ion batteries like sitting in the middle of charge for storage purposes, anything else degrades their life and performance. Once battery fails, and it's a question of when not if, you have to throw away high quality bike light for no other reason than them building planned obsolescence in the product. And I am not going to go deeper into just how much better 18650 is than cells used in this light are. From thermal dissipation, performance, over and under-voltage protections, etc. Two hours might be enough for you and your location, but for mine it's not, especially in the winter when it gets dark before 5pm. People living further away from equator have even less daylight, so longer battery life is always more convenient if for no other reason then to charge it fewer times. Oh, and dynamo adds far more weight and price than just picking up the right bike light and one extra battery.
