First impressions....WOW!

    The manufacturers really poor rambling English description of this light doesn't even come close to telling you how good this is!

    Even the video/gif doesn't show how bright it is.

    This is as bright as a battery light!

    It only flashes (2x per second), but it also doesn't stop flashing for 60+ seconds after you stop. I passed the magnet over it 3 times and it last for about 30 seconds before it went off!

    Its not the best looking light and only being able to mount it lower down is not that great, but it seems to be able to do the job and you wont have to worry about batteries, ever.

    Compared to DX's other magnet light which is not really very good, this things is pretty awesome.

    I have just ordered another 5.

    I guess time will tell as to how long it lasts, hopefully it'll last longer than some of my recent light purchaces from DX!

    It is on my commuter and coming up for winter, it will get a good test as to how robust it is.

    I recommend this light to any one who wants/needs a bright rear light.

    I will still use a battery/usb light on my seatpost for extra visability, but this one is bright enough to be used on its own.

    I had to think twice about that. What sort of battery, what sort of light?

    The idea of this being amazing with so little input reminds me of when a friend got a magnetic shake light - no battery, just shake! He shook it for a few minutes then turned it on as we timed it to see how long it lasted. It was not too bad for half a minute, then the intensity dropped but it just kept on going at a dimmer level. After half an hour we got suspicious and disected it to find a lithium coin cell hidden inside. After the first half minute that's what it had been running on.

    it also doesn't stop flashing for 60+ seconds after you stop. I passed
    the magnet over it 3 times and it last for about 30 seconds before it
    went off!

    I think it's rather more likely the magnet is just acting to switch it on. Can you get inside it and check for snake oil?

    DX has found a new way to deceive customers:
    Use reviews for different products that have not been bought
    by the person who wrote the review.
