T6 Smooth Crown Water Resistant XML-T6 3-Mode "120 – T6 Smooth Crown Water Resistant XML-T6 3-Mode "1200-Lumen" White LED Bike Light with Battery Set Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Very bright (Much Brighter than my two other 900 lumen lights)
Fairly solid spot - only slight centre fade.
Sleek design
Cons:
1. Tailcap battery indicator always stays red, even when fully charged. Have checked with other batteries and it is definately a fault with the light unit. This will make it difficult to know when the battery is getting low.
2. O-ring does not have a tab which makes it more difficult to attach to the helmet mount (or bar).
3. Battery is not waterproof
4. Battery Connector is smaller than previous models, which makes the compatibility with my other lights not so good. (Very loose connection)
Other:
Although the appearance is great, I wonder if the light will get too hot as there are fewer heatsink groves?... Time will tell.
Bottomline:
Worthwhile purchase. Buy it for the brightness!
Build quality is a bit questionable.
A bit hit and miss with these lights as to whether you will get a fully functioning one, but for the price they are a good option...
