    One of the "must have" for all cyclist

    posted by yskeong on 01/09/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    A extremely bright tail light. This light can been seen clearly in a bright sunny day. Easy to use, well built (except the rotary switch). A full charge of the battery can powered the tail light for more than 12 hours (my longest ride with the tail light on).
    Cons:
    The rotary switch is the source of great concern for me. The rotary switch on my first unit fails after a year. The second unit...

    Very bright and useful but not very durable

    posted by AlamK on 01/21/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    1. Very bright. 2. 3 Modes, just about right! 3. A selected mode in combination of its brightness can be found that works well at any time of the day or night.
    Cons:
    1. Poor and very limited method to mount on bicycle. 2. The plastic part on the back of the light is held with a single screw a...

    A small price for safety!

    posted by LarsU on 11/02/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Super bright. Day visible. Works great with the front light (808E is a good one) with a Y cable. I got the updated battery with a rubbery waterproof cover (it also came in the new different box). Overall very impressed with quality and function.
    Cons:
    Needs to be angled up if attached to a seatpost (part of the reason why I installed mine on the helmet). That's about it.

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    The brightest rear light I have ever seen, bar none! Build quality seems excellent as well, I bought this last October and used it through the winter in all conditions, rain, ice, road salt, etc. without the slightest issue. It also works really well with t...
    Cons:
    The switch mechanism is fiddly to use and easy to turn past the point you were intending to get to, eg. switching it on again w...

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

    Pros:
    Extremely powerfull, it will protect you from cars that will have to avoid you because light is exageratly powerfull. It is a unique bike tail light set. I've never something like that!
    Cons:
    Not as much practical as it could be. It is quite easily removed so that you have to remove it every time you park the bike in...

    This tail light is VERY bright, I never seen anything like that. The design is very good. The crown switch works well with winter gloves. Runtime is perfect for commuting and night rides about 3-5 hours.
    Cons:
    Probably not waterproof ! I use it under rain and it goes off, it works again after a long drying. (I do not try the battery wa...

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Links in well to the front MagicShine light. I run it with a splitter off the same battery. Initially wondered about the waterproofness, but its proved me wrong. No issues after 3 months riding, during a wet New Zealand winter! I generally run this and th...
