Nice but could be better – RGB 5-LED 7-Mode Stainless Steel Wheel Lights for Bikes and Cars (2-Pack) Reviews

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

Pros:
Cool price, is relatively cheap bright enough for nighttime streets reliable splash-proof body (but non-waterproof) In static - all modes are nice.
Cons:
slightly smaller than I expected - size of transparent part the same as the 10 ml syringe Programmed modes are not suitable for spin: flashing modes in the movement lose its charm. modes with running lights are not solid - unpleasant gaps between flashes. one set of batteries for only one night of bright glow used in the construction of narrow-angle LEDs, so the brightness is different for different sides.
Other:
going to totally remake device. 3mm LED replacement for SMD LEDs with emission angle of 120 degrees. add a capacitor on each channel. and an increase in the battery compartment from 3xAG10 to 3xAG13 (LR44)
Bottomline:
not a good variant for a wheel deco... but looks much better as a pendant for party
