Very bright, useable in all modes. – Mega 53-LED Bike Mount Light 3xAA Reviews

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

Pros:
Very bright, excellent visibility on the road - looks really good, thick and bright, impossible not to notice on the road. Works from 3 AAs, which is very good, cause you'll need a lot. This is not a con, because so many LEDs take a lot of energy, and if you want to conserve - just run the lowest mode. It's still fairly bright and very usable on lighted roads.
Cons:
Bracket might be a little weak for the sise, balance is wrong - it's top-heavy, so it might slip forwards, and I'm afraid to overtighten it. Not that bad though, we'll see how it holds up. Soldering is bad, one LED did not work, so I opened it (very easy to disassemble) and I'll just have to put a bit of solder - at least one LED was loose, maybe more.
Other:
However it's very usable, looks great and when detached from the brackes (it clicks in place) it's rather convenient as a regular flashlight.
Bottomline:
I believe it's a good buy overall.
