good light – 9-LED Bike Head Light (3xAA) Reviews

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

Pros:
Nice packaged light, good for resellers.
Very good value and the build quality is ok for the price.
Uses AA which will last 2 to 3 times longer then AAA
Cons:
You cannot see the lamp being on from the side. Safetywise the manufacturer could have placed 2 leds on the side or put like a see through plastic ring.
Like other reviewers I doubt it is waterproof. The switch has a nice rubber cover. Maybe it is weather resistant which is a bit different then waterproof.
Other:
The light has a quick release which makes it easy to steal. Also it's a bit difficult to put the light in the pocket of your pants because of the shape.
Maybe for some people it is easier to buy a tube like lamp (the cheap 9 led 20000mcd) and a universal bicycle mount.
Bottomline:
A good light that will suite most people's needs.
With some mods it might have been a better lamp.
