Bright, simple, inexpensive – 9-LED Bike Safety Strobe Light (2*AAA) Reviews

posted by sylvainm on 11/26/2008 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
* powerful beam
* 3 modes (steady, blink, 'wave')
* seems relatively rain-proof despite some holes
* works nice with rechargeable batteries
Cons:
* poor side visibility (unlike sku.3637 with dedicated side LEDs)
* no European (or any other) homologation
* very plastic-y bike mount, need to be careful when removing the light from the mount
Other:
Weight: ~63g with NI-MH batteries
Dimensions: 75 * 44 * 35 mm (with rear clip, without bike mount)
Bottomline:
Very good light for the price. Seems robust enough for the job, despite the flimsy mount.
This is my main rear light (always used in 'wave mode'), but in a urban environment I would recommend to use an additional wide angle rear light or arm ligh.
