good value for price – 5-LED Bike Safety Strobe Light Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

Pros:
very small and low weight. Has 2 submini LED and 3 small LED. $3.19 is a very low price. Looks water tight with silicone gaskets on both ends and silicone transfer pad to internal switch. Some excess plastic to infer with the gasket.
Cons:
No reflector. Has white colored board in back of LEDs so it doesn't reflect the light outward. Have Al foil or silver color foil will increase light out put. High current draw (78.1 mA with Alk. batteries) for the amount of light. A NR light put out much more light at 54.6 mA but 3 times the price.
Other:
Bottomline:
For a very low cost bike light is one to try. The other lights are so low cost try them all. Should show internal picture for better view of LEDs arrangement and size. Should have a 2 AA size rear light. AAA are useful for low weight walking light but should use AA for bike light.
