No battery included! Uses 2x AAA so factor this – 3-LED Bike Safety Strobe Light Reviews

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

Pros:
-Small, compact (about 3cm wide and 6cm long) -Seems strong/sturdy and well designed -3x LED lights (not sure how bright) -Cheap initial cost -Light weight without batteries
Cons:
-No battery included, not mentioned in description, going to add more to cost than light cost (around $5 AUD). -Uses 2x AAA batteries, so heavier than other lightweight LED lights. -Attachment to extra bike mount is flimsy and would probably fall out over a sharp bump. Doesn't matter to me though as I am planning to attach this to my backpack.
Other:
-Cant comment on brightness/light quality as I don't have any AAA batteries in the house and cant be bothered buying them. -Buy some cheap AAA batteries here on DX or buy another item which is included with batteries.
Bottomline:
Small, simple 3x LED rear/red light that would probably be good as a backup or secondary hazard light to attach to your bicycle, backpack, helmet etc. However as mentioned this takes 2x AAA batteries and they aren't included, so you have to be aware of this and factor it into the over all cost of ownership.
