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

    Pros:

    - nice package
    - very bright light, you can drive on high speed steadily
    - mount with rubber rings make lighthead VERY stabilized in comarison with other DX mounts for usual (hand-held) flashlights, it's sensible at bumpy road especially
    - external battery pack make overall length shorter then usual flashlights using as bicycle
    - external battery pack allows to use packs of expanded capacity, among them DIY packs
    - connection between lighthead and battery pack looks very durable and waterproof
    - battery pack waterproof enough - tested by few downpours
    - color LED indicate battery charge - awesome feature in sober fast if you drive in the country

    Cons:

    - stock battery pack has very low capacity, it's enough only for 2.5 hour of max mode (instead of 3-4 hour rated by manufacturer)
    - bolt which fastens lighthead and bar cover plate easy untwist itself, using of threadlock paste is recommended
    - useless and tiresome SOS mode - as usual on chinese flashlights :) :(
    - small area of heat dispersion - if you aren't ride it's heat high and quickly

    OtherThoughts:

    - i using this light with fresnel type lens (not included in package) which make beam wider - it's ideal for bike dipped beam

    - i think to change batteries in pack with ones of more capacity

    - charger in my package differ from product picture - it has plug on long cord, not in charger case directly

    - it's just appearance but rubber rings in my package are orange, not black :)

    - i received charger with US plug in my package, but plug is detachable so it's resolve the problem

    Bottomline:

    this is very worthly light for your bike, its price biggish but by a nose
