    Bright light

    posted by nmellech on 02/25/2014 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Bright light, wide illuminated area. Relatively cheap, compared to similar lights available in my country. Resists rain. Easy to attach and remove from the bike. Uses 4x AA batteries(better than 5 or 3 which is difficult to charge)
    Cons:
    Built quality. After one year of use a wire in the battery compartment did break. So I had to solder it.

    Involvement:Novice  (still getting used to it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    The product was more than my expectation, I thought iluminaçãoseria weak, was powerful and wide field helps a lot, the supply of batteries is interesting and allows tethering well anywhere, minus the length of wire that is slightly smaller than al...
    Cons:
    The only drawback is the length of the wire is a bit short, it allows complete freedom to tie the fork for example. but I have ...

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    For it's price this little light can't be beat! It even comes with 4 AA batteries! The seals on the battery compartment seem good, but have not tested them out yet.
    Cons:
    Nothing major yet. I am not so sure how well the clasps will work as they look a little flimsy, but I will amend this if I fin...

    Treat it right, this is a great light

    posted by LarryO on 11/14/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    This light is extremely bright. I rarely use the high beam as the low does an excellent job lighting up roads and trails. The flash is good to increase safety. I haven't been in extremely wet weather, but I believe it would hold up well. The battery life ...
    Cons:
    The first light I ordered didn't work, and the door to the battery compartment is very weak. The hinge broke while just opening...
