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

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

* powerful beam
* 3 modes (steady, blink, 'wave')
* seems relatively rain-proof despite some holes
* works nice with rechargeable batteries
* 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
Weight: ~63g with NI-MH batteries
Dimensions: 75 * 44 * 35 mm (with rear clip, without bike mount)
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.
