Throws like you would not believe. All I need is a small "bat" logo on the glass to send out signal :-) Beautifly finished with nice blueish tint. Handy strap that can be removed no unnecessary strobe,sos etc If you want cars to look out for you while biking then this a good way to do it. It is impossible not to notice you coming. To see properly yourself you need a second light with more spill though. Compact size.
It had a contact issue that dissapeared with tightening of the cap. Hope it does not return. Only for throwing, not really a con unless you are a little stupid ;-)
Everybody I have showed it to have been amazed at what can be done with just a single led and battery today when it is done right.
If you desire a thrower that is compact and light weight the I know of no better way to go. I waited forever for mine to arrive (back ordered after placing my order) so be ready wait for yours even if it does not say back ordered.
