Nice idea, needs refinement. – Wind Powered LED Light for Vehicles (2-Pack) Reviews

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

Pros:
I like the idea of not having to think about turning the light on manually. Variable angles. Sticks on.
Cons:
Hard to get to work, (need speed). Poor quality on bearings, actually non existent..
Other:
Not exactly "blinding" light, but they will be noticed. I used them on my Chinese Quinqi scooter and I need about 40 km/h for one and about 70 km/h for the other to function. (25 and 40 mph.) The rotating generator has no bearings or fixations so it quickly becomes rattling when the plastic gets worn.. should have been a metal bushing, that would have improved its lifetime tenfold.
Bottomline:
Good idea, but this thing needs to have better quality to last for longer than a couple of months....
I would be willing to pay more for a better functioning light.
