Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month
Cheap compared to traditional ultra bright lights
Long battery life
Heating (on original model, has now been fixed I believe)
Lead is a bit short (can be fixed with extension cable SKU32751)
Difficult to mount on some helmets
Beam isn't as wide as some.
I use this for both night-mountain-biking/free-riding and for on-road use (commuting). Well suited to both. The first on I bought had some overheating issues, which I solved by stripping down and adding some thermal grease, but the second one I bought didn't have this issue.
Definetly bright enough, I've used it helmet mounted as my only source of light for mt biking and had no issues at all. Definetly kept up with much more expensive models.
For the price, you can't beat it. Suitable for offroad applications, and can be helmet mounted with a little effort, rubber bands & blue tac.
The battery pack that came with the first one died (only holds 20min charge now), but the more recent one is still going strong and powers on for hours. Replacement packs are easy to find too, so not a huge issue, and still comes in cheaper than the mainstream competition!
