StarStarStarStarStar Cool light

by
Ownership: a month

Pros

People will see you with this, in fact you could hypnotize them from afar. Very bright.

Cons

Had to figure away to mount on the rear rack as this comes with a post mount.

StarStarStarStarStar Cheap but effective

by
Ownership: several months
Tech Knowledge: average

Pros

Cheap
Good nighttime light

Cons

Not very bright-not a good daytime light
Not very rugged-better suited to road bikes than mountain bikes
Short battery life

Other Thoughts

Not a bad low-end light

StarStarStarStarStar Good light, bad mount

by
Ownership: several months
Tech Knowledge: high

Pros

Great light, variety of strobe patterns, very bright.

Cons

Mount is cheaply made, loosens easily (light then points at the ground, doing no good for warning vehicles approaching from behind). After a short 9 months of ownership, the quick-release failed and my light vanished during a long ride.

StarStarStarStarStar good concept-middling execution

by
Ownership: a month
Tech Knowledge: average

Pros

Acceptable intensity
Eye catching light patterns
Laser path in low light situations a real plus

Cons

Battery lid hinge failed immediately forcing use of tape to hold unit together

Needed pliers to tighten keeper bolt to keep unit horizontal

StarStarStarStarStar Meh...

Pros

Light portion works well.

Cons

Lane marker portion didn't work at all. Waste of time.

Other Thoughts

As with all lights that run on single use batteries, you run through them pretty fast. The lights with rechargeable batteries (power via a USB cord) are a much better value.
