Good idea, not great design. The cords are on the short side. There are protrusions on one side of the lights. Do they protect from rain or serve any other purpose? No. Do they make it harder for the lights to be seen? Yes. And seeing the lights is a big problem. Whether the tiny battery is not enough for four LEDs, or there is another issue, you will be lucky to spot the lights. Even in the complete darkness of a bike shed they are not very noticeable. In a lamp-lit street, you have to be really lucky to spot them. And I've had some practice, having bought this for my son and followed his scooter on many nights. I haven't taken these lights off his helmet just because they are (just about, probably) better than nothing.
To put it politely, not the greatest piece of engineering in the history of mankind. Needs more work. Useless as is.

Great idea... In theory.
The lights looked great on my helmet, but I had a lot of difficulty getting them to stick firmly.
After a few uses , the metal contact inside the battery compartment snapped, rendering the lights useless. What a shame

Firstly, I would suggest that no-one uses just the lights you may have on your helmet. Too often I've missed cyclists that have been looking to the side and thus not been shining a light in my direction. These are strictly in the 'additional, you can't have too many' lighting category.

The wires from the switch to the LEDs is deliberately short I suspect, to reduce the length you'd have floating around in your helmet. As the wires are moderately thick, it does mean you have to be careful where you run them, to ensure you're not putting strain on the lights themselves. Sticky pads can only hold so much for so long. Having said that, the pads are strong, if fiddly to tear off and apply. You need to make sure you're right first time when applying them, or you'd best get some more (from the pound shop).

Once the lights are in place, you can attach the switch to your helmet strap. This is the worst part of the design. It's a rotary switch which relies on the body not moving when you twist it. As the clip in the back isn't designed for thick straps, there's the possibility you'd just turn the whole unit, and it could fall off. Personally I take my helmet off and turn the light on, to make sure it's working.

These are fairly typical high output LED's, which are fairly directional. Blindingly bright to hold in your hand and look at directly. You could be easily seen at night if you're looking straight ahead. They are less effective if you look down or to the side though. That's a problem with this type of light, not the unit itself.

Overall a neater solution than the lights that sit on top of the helmet.

Found it difficult to mount these inside my helmet with the sticky pads supplied which lasted all of 2 weeks. Bought some velcro strips and used them instead. Could be brighter!

Realy pleased with this item. Easy to fit into the helmet. Looks like the helmet came like it as standard. Very well made and the means to turn the lights on fits smartly to the hemlet strap just behind the ear when worn. Easy to switch on and very bright. An excellent safety addition and very highly recommended......

These fit right into my brain bucket with zero trouble. I didn't even need the adhesives. They're pretty bright as well and they are better than a too mounted light in my opinion.
