New front light....

I'm looking for something small, lightweight, powerful enough be seen, have a good battery life and be well made.
Am I asking too much ?

Anyone have any recommendations ?

    Moon xpower range well made and good battery life. Various lumen levels to suit. Have got a couple of older 300 lumen ones and they have been in use for at least 4 winters for daily commute with no problems.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Just trying a Brooks/Lezyne front and rear on my Brompton and will see what that's like...

    You have not mentioned budget, but the Ravemen brand make some really high quality, practical units.

    I have the 1200 model, powerful, yes, enough to be seen, most definitely, well built, yes. Lightweight though it is not its quite a weighty unit but it is packing a 5000Mah battery.

    Has a few light modes and a "Full beam" button on a remote which is great when it gets very dark.

    Yep same one I have, awesome light, and like the powerpack option too.

    I googled yesterday and noticed they do lesser powered models, and also smaller (presumably) lighter options as well.
