Quite good, but with weakness – T6 Smooth Crown Water Resistant XML-T6 3-Mode "1200-Lumen" White LED Bike Light with Battery Set Reviews

posted by LogicDaemon on 11/26/2011 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
Very bright, with smooth spot in centre of the beam. Highlighted clicky switch, not too hard but not prone to accidental switching.
High capacity cell battery.
Good mount (non-rotating though).
Cons:
- High self-discharge when off. Mine fully discharges in two days (it's switched off!).
Disconnect light from battery while not using, or once you'll going to ride, battery will appear depleted.
- Brightness depends on charge level.
- «High» mode is too bright when fully charged, and «Mid» mode is «almost-High» in fact. «Mid» is really too bright for sidewalk-riding, because it blinds approaching pedestrians.
- No «Lo» mode.
- On the battery, In-field cell replacement isn't possible. So reserve must be another battery block, not just 4 replacement cells.
Other:
Very good for that price.
Bottomline:
If you want bright bike light and don't want to overpay, take it. It's quite cheap for its features.
