Garmin launches e-bike specific radar light - the Varia eRTL615

If it is like the non-light model that comes as OEM fit with Cannondale Smartsense (and some Specialized e-bikes?) it will run from "any" 4v to 12v power supply. I bought one of those and it operated from a PP3 9V battery quite happily for testing.

This looks great, but the price is tricky. You can buy 2 RTL515s for the same money, which would give you ~14 hours of riding time, and the opportunity to charge one while you used the other.

Interested in what the required input is.  Presumably with the USB-A you can run it from powerbank which may be of interest to long distance riders.
