    does this thing brighten when slowing down? via accelerometer?  something like the fabric flr-30?

    You don't think that such a cool function (found in a light at least 5 times as expensive, not counting shipping) would be mentioned?


    @cyclist does DX have anything like that?

    As sheepish said, this is a cheap light and something that cheap would never have that function.


    If you want to stand out, buy this one as it has an (hidden!) SOS function which helps you stand out, its my go to light now - sku.426089

    Hold the button down till SOS comes on.

    Isn't it a tad irresponsible to use SOS when you're not in trouble?

    Haha yeah!

    Thats what I thought when I first found it, but I thought about it, its red and only really used on busy roads, so as long as I don't use it when Im off road in the hills, I should be fine :) 

    I find that a light that changes its flashing sequence draws more attention from a driver than just a normal flash/flash/flash...


    Plus, I would imagine that most drivers have no idea what SOS looks like anyway!

    Haha! Yeah well im just interpreting dx speak... Sorry if i fail, what with their poor english translation.  "Inteligent warning" in my mind may in fact mean accelerometer enabled, and those sensors are not expensive at all.  The flr-30 goes for 30 in the states, and logitech puts these sensors in mice and even keyboards and has been for years...

    Hello @z80cowboy

    does this thing brighten when slowing down? via accelerometer?

    No, it doesn't.

    The light will flash while riding and stop automatically 2 minutes after parking.

    Be happy. ( *^_^* )
