Pros:
9 leds. By the effect of the cases magnifiers the light is impresive. Light effects are pretty. Well build bike support, with rubber bands for better grip.
Cons:
Not water leakproof, there is a open square hole unprotected (why?). The power on-switchmode button is loose, water and/or mud can also filter to inside by there. No wide beam, very bright but in a very narrow angle (due to he lenses in the glass)
Other:
I cannot measure the batteries life due to i only needed the bike support, case, printed circuit and leds, for a custom dynamo powered project, so i have to destroy the original circuit and make a new one (not a con!, only a particularity of my project.
Bottomline:
The square hole can be insulated by hot glue, but the loose button... the contact glue can make miracle but i have no test this (due to the project i used it, i haven't used it and simply remove it and insulate with hot glue.
