4.0 out of 5 stars Light To Be Seen With
Top notch light for making you visible on your bike. It gives out enough light to show where you are but isn't for ridding on unlit roads.

I got my first one two years ago. I used it for over 500 hours of cycling before it gave up and stopped charging. However Blackburn offer a lifetime guarantee so I got it replaced.

Charging off USB is a...

1.0 out of 5 stars Could be so much better!
When it works, its a great light, super bright and highly visible, and tiny enough to take up minimal space on your handle bars. However, the battery just doesn't hold its charge; I've had mine for just over a month, and while at first it lastest a few days of commuting, now it can't even last my half hour commute home. Very disappointed!

It's very bright but it has a very short battery life. Bit of a pain when you have to charge it every hour or so

5.0 out of 5 stars blackburn flea, 4 Nov 2012
Great little light, I use it for commuting, it really gets you seen. I really do rate it as the best front light ive had, ive been through all kinds over the years, I carry a usb wall plug with me, with the charger, as I dont always have access to a computer, it weighs next to nothing, is quick to charge, and you know your not going to get caught out with no light.The perfect little light

5.0 out of 5 stars Close to perfect little rear light, 20 May 2013
For me this is close to being the perfect little rear light for urban commuting. It is tiny, very light (19g, or 21g including the velcro mounting strap), very bright, rechargeable and seems well made.

Things that the product description doesn't mention or are not immediately obvious:
1. It turns on/off just by pressing a rubbery button in the middle of the red casing of the light itself - easily found if you're reaching behind you to turn it on while riding
2. You can cycle through steady, flashing, 'chasing' and off modes by repeatedly pressing the button when you turn it on. However, once you've selected the mode, you do not then have to cycle through them again to turn it off - just one click does the job - a very nice touch.
3. The light attaches magnetically to the included USB recharger (which is tiny) and blinks red to show that it is charging, switching to green flashes when fully charged (about 1.5 hours)
4. It attaches to the bike just by hooking the metal clip over an included velcro strap (which has a rubbery backing to stop it slipping round your seat-tube).

Possibly the only concern is that if you're wanting to attach it to something with a smaller diameter than a seat tube you may find difficult - the strap will need to go round twice and you can end up trying to velcro the all important hook and loop bit under the light itself if you're not careful. It might be nice to have two different length straps included to cover all eventualities, but apart from that and the fact that I cannot vouch for longevity then I am struggling to fault this!
