Very weak single LED

Posted21 October 2013
No, I do not recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Lightweight
Cons: dim
This product has an attractive price and good build quality, and having usb charging is a real must. But the actual brightness of the light is very dim, only really useable as a backup light.

Handy, small and easy to charge.

Posted09 February 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Lightweight, Looks great, no batteries needed, fit in pocket when not in use
Cons: could be brighter
Really useful as I can charge this and a similar rear light at work and so have no worries about batteries running out on the way home. Particularly good as at the times I cycle to and from work there are no shops open to buy batteries. Once charged, they seem to last for ages too. Also, good because they fit in my jacket pocket when I'm not using them. Would be nice if they were slightly brighter but still make me very visible on the roads.

Small,simple. Great mounting design

Posted29 March 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Lightweight, mounting design
Cons: Unattractive
Great light if your looking for something small. The mounting setup is quick and simple and the light can slide out with ease and be rotated horizontal or vertical which is REALLY handy if you cannot mount on handle bars. The light power is good enough and range is about 1m 1/2 and is good if you require it so other pedestrians & vehicles can see you.....but if you want more of a headlight get something more powerfull with nore LED'S. Overall I'm happy with this item which is at a low price especially with USB re-charge which I love. Why mess around with batteries.
