Do not be fooled - the front light is not waterproofed
on 14 November 2012
Just like quite a few other reviews here, initially I was really impressed with these super bright lights. However after 31 days it rained on my way home and the front light stopped working. It rained a fair amount but it was not even a downpour. The rear light is still fine but the front light is gone as water found its way in.
Because it was over the 30 day Amazon refund policy I can't return the item and there is no link to contact the seller (which is Amazon), which is ironic considering I can contact any other seller of items I've purchased from Amazon. But not Amazon itself when they sell the item!
All in all, great lights if you live somewhere where it never rains. They are very bright. However if it ever rains around where you live, buy something else that is waterproofed.
Also as other reviews here, the light mountings are very poor quality and don't really hold the lights in place when you go over a speed bump or a pothole a little bit faster.
For the same money there are other bike lights that are actually waterproofed.
