Good light for it's price – HA-III SSC P7-C (SXO) 3-Mode 900-Lumen LED Bike Light Set Reviews

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

Pros:
Beam is very good for nightrides through the woods. Heat dissipation is ok- while riding it doesn't get too warm.
Build quality of the outer parts is quite good.
Weight of the complete system is very low. Comes with a reuseable and noble looking packaging.
Cons:
Build quality of the inner parts ( solderings, led mount ) is not so good. But nothing that can't be fixed afterwards.
The strobe mode is useless, a 5% brightness mode for the city would be much more useful.
Other:
This is NO light for the City. Oncoming traffic gets glared ;-)
Bottomline:
If you want a light with >80% performance of the brightest branded products for 20% of their price, this is your deal. If you have technical skills: opening the light and checking for bad solderings is a good idea but normally not needed. Even for tuning or DIY projects this product is still a good base.
Don't forget to buy a an adapter like sku.13525 if you live in Europe, the Light comes with an US Wall power supply.
