Great backlight for bikes – 3-LED Safety Bike Tail Mount Light 2xAAA Reviews

posted by compasillo on 07/24/2008 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
+ High power leds. They can be seen from a long distance
+ Very easy to mount (a little adjust to the rubber band included is needed)
+ Mine has four modes instead the 2-mode announced: blinking all three leds, two strobe modes and continuous lighting
+ Two O-rings to protect from raining
+ Compact size
+ Reliable rubber switch on top
+ Light weight
+ Long runtime for the batteries (alkaline or rechargeable NiMH)
+ It can be easily off from the bike when not in use and its small size is perfect to keep in a pocket or a waist bag
Cons:
Nothing I can think about now.
Perhaps someone can think a 2xAA power option would be better (sure would last longer) but the compact size would not be the same.
Other:
I bought a couple of them and they work great. It makes you feel really well safe when running in the dark.
Bottomline:
If you need a safety light for your bike this is a very good option and for the price I would buy one more as spare.
