Flimsy, lens-less – Mega 53-LED Bike Mount Light 3xAA Reviews

posted by RandomTroll on 07/29/2007 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
It's bright (in 53-LED mode) and inexpensive.
Cons:
It's flimsy: the mount broke after ten days. Because it has no lens, just a cover, the light is unfocused, thus much less useful. A better design would trade LEDs for a lens, yielding as much useful light for less power. I ran through a set of batteries in less than two hours on-time in 53-LED mode. I use 10-LED mode now.
Other:
Bottomline:
I will buy a different light; I wish I had not bought this one.
