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

Pros:
- nice package - very bright light, you can drive on high speed steadily - mount with rubber rings make lighthead VERY stabilized in comarison with other DX mounts for usual (hand-held) flashlights, it's sensible at bumpy road especially - external battery pack make overall length shorter then usual flashlights using as bicycle - external battery pack allows to use packs of expanded capacity, among them DIY packs - connection between lighthead and battery pack looks very durable and waterproof - battery pack waterproof enough - tested by few downpours - color LED indicate battery charge - awesome feature in sober fast if you drive in the country
Cons:
- stock battery pack has very low capacity, it's enough only for 2.5 hour of max mode (instead of 3-4 hour rated by manufacturer) - bolt which fastens lighthead and bar cover plate easy untwist itself, using of threadlock paste is recommended - useless and tiresome SOS mode - as usual on chinese flashlights :) :( - small area of heat dispersion - if you aren't ride it's heat high and quickly
Other:
- i using this light with fresnel type lens (not included in package) which make beam wider - it's ideal for bike dipped beam - i think to change batteries in pack with ones of more capacity - charger in my package differ from product picture - it has plug on long cord, not in charger case directly - it's just appearance but rubber rings in my package are orange, not black :) - i received charger with US plug in my package, but plug is detachable so it's resolve the problem
Bottomline:
this is very worthly light for your bike, its price biggish but by a nose
