  • Light works OK but not 3 Watts bright as advertised

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    Great price; uses standard batteries. Handle bar clip works OK. Mounting clip can take other small lights with standard sized body.

    Cons:

    Compared to my Planet Bike 2W light which costed 5 times the price, this light is not as bright nor have a beam spread as wide. My 2W takes only takes 2 AA batteries. Mounting clip on handle bar is not quick release; wraps around only so not as convenient to remove.

    OtherThoughts:

    If you're using this light in flash mode to be seen, it works just fine. If you're riding in the dark, then the beam spread in steady mode is a bit too narrow and brightness is not the best - so don't ride too fast to maintain visibility.

    Bottomline:

    Good light for strobe for city riding but I'd would use it for any off-trail or riding dark streets in steady mode unless you've got some street lights. It makes a great spare in case I run down my regular bike light however.
