  • really good for the city

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    It's pretty cheap and gives enough light for city rides (despite not being as much as I expected when city lamps overlap it).
    You can use it as a "normal" flashlight.

    Cons:

    It often changes its mode when bumping on the road by itself, so when I'm using the strobe I find myself with the full power, and after another bumb the mid-power; so I think the switch is a little soft.

    OtherThoughts:

    It takes a little much time to put and take the mount if you don't like leaving it in the handle (not the flashlight).
    It has 3modes (Full-mid- full fast strobe) as the description says, but not as the package (if we don't count off as a mode).
    When it's fully zoomed the light is a square. Not a problem but quite strange.
    Maybe the "ambient" red is what I like less. It doesn't waste battery because it's from the same led.

    Bottomline:

    As I said, a very very cheap bike flashlight that comes handy even when not using it with a bike.
    Buy it.
