StarStarStarStarStar Nice bike headlight

by
Ownership: several months
Tech Knowledge: somewhat high

Pros

-Very bright
-Adjustable settings for versatility
-Battery life decent
-Rechargable Li-on Battery

Cons

-Battery life on highest setting is short. Medium setting or below is adequate for most situations and had great battery life.
-Mounting system allows it to eventually jiggle out of place with a bumpy ride. Easy to adjust back.

Other Thoughts

Great little headlight. It's compact, sleek, rechargeable and had proven to be fairly water repellent as well.

StarStarStarStarStar Good step in light evolution

by
Ownership: a month
Tech Knowledge: high

Pros

Best single new feature is ability to flash the row of single LEDs while shining the main lamp steadily. I like the rubber band fastening method; might not be great on round bar with rough terrain. Power is good, excellent in max mode. Have not fully tested duration yet. Price x perfomance made this a good deal for me.

Cons

You may need to concentrate a bit to figure out which mode you have the light in; pay close attention if you care about duration or you could drain your lamp when you didn't mean to--in daylight blinky mode, for example. First world problem, clearly.

StarStarStarStarStar Light the night

by
Ownership: several months
Tech Knowledge: high

Pros

Several illuminating modes, long lasting charge, brightest light in my group.

Cons

No cons to mention

Other Thoughts

This light has the best of both worlds, LEDs for battery power conservation on 70+ mile rides and a super bright setting that illuminates darkness before sunrise and after sunset.

by
Ownership: a few months

Rubber mounting strap allows you to quickly mount and remove from any bike.
Several choices of light levels and flash modes.
Gives some warning when battery is getting low.

StarStarStarStarStar Nice light

StarStarStarStarStar Nice Daytime Running Light

by
Ownership: a month
Tech Knowledge: average

Pros

This is a daytime "to be seen" headlight and it is the best I have found for that purpose. I especially like the USB recharge feature. The various flashing and steady beam possibilities should fit just about everyone's desires.

Cons

Not a negative for me but, it might be for some people: Don't even consider this light for a nighttime "to see by" light. The beam does not illuminate far enough ahead to safely light the path to ride at night.

Other Thoughts

I absolutely recommend this as a daytime running light.
