    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    - has the functions it advertises
    (always on, one second strobe with 50% duty cycle and a fast strobe cycling all leds including red ones)
    - has lateral redlight (on each side one red smd led, not powerful but still visible)
    - the white light from the five LED's is combined and focused in one circle of light at 2 meters plus
    - hangs on tight to my crowbar
    - quality made is ok. can't complain. the rubber coating gives a strong feeling of protection from dirt and impacts.

    Cons:

    - the five LED's from the front are not so powerful, but they still emit and acceptable light. I compared it with a friend with one bulb headlight and it didn't even get near to the brightness of his bike headlight.
    - the power on and switch modes push button is very hard to work with. I always need to concentrate and look where it is to push it, but acceptable.
    - might fall downwards because of it gravity center if it doesn't stick well to the bar.

    OtherThoughts:

    - contains a plastic white housing underneath the rubber coating. The LED are held tight together by a transparent plastic which is also used as focusing lens.
    - on my item, the batteries where included. they are the cheapest ones and might not last long, but still. It was plug and play.
    - can be mounted on the back, but i think it was thought to be mounted on the front. If mounted in the back it will not be at a 90 degrees angle and only the back wheel will be lit. Also you will throw away the lateral red lighting functionality.
    - can be mounted on the arcade of the suspension. Worked fine for me like this, and it looked very cool, but it is not theft proof.
    - it's a very good acquisition, considering that the fine for not having it starts at 30 dollars.
    - i haven't checked its waterproofing yet, but seems very assuring.

    Bottomline:

    - i'm very pleased with it. I managed to mount it in the middle of the crowbar (thus removing it would require to dismantle the bar - easy theft proof)
