compact and surprisingly bright – 9-LED 12000mcd Flashlight with Bike Mount (3*AAA) Reviews

Pros:
A nice little flashlight that puts out a surprising amount of light. It takes 3 AAA's, which is convenient, and means it doesn't weigh too much in your pocket. Handy for an everyday flashlight that you can clip to your bike, which i think is great. Seems fairly weather-resistant, but haven't tested in a downpour yet.
Cons:
I had to do a little bit of modifying to the included clip to make it work on my handlebars, but it works great now. Also, it was a little unclear which way the batteries go in, but i summoned up all my brainpower, and within a minute i had it working.
Other:
Depending on the thickness of your handlebars, you may have to do do some creative thinking to get the clip to fit. My bars were too skinny, so i added a thin strip of leather around the handlebars to make up the needed space. Surprisingly, the flashlight clips tightly into the clip, and it's adjustable even after attached. Nice!
Bottomline:
The light that it gives off is impressive for a compact, inexpensive flashlight. It's a nice little flashlight for everyday use, and the bike clip is a nice little bonus.
