Sport DirectTM Bicycle Bike Rechargeable 15 Lux Power Cycle LED Light Set... from Büchel
on 17 March 2014
I ordered two of these as I was confident of liking them, judging by the reviews I had read. First disappointment was that they came with 2-pin plugs fitted, and the pins were too thin for a shaver adapter plug. I fitted 13A plug tops and gave the lights a full charge, there are LED's which indicate the charge state. I fitted them to my bikes, which went okay, then tried them out on the road - I live up a rural single track road in the Scottish Highlands with no street lights - only moonlight on a clear night. The front light gives a strange pattern which is in the form of fingers of light, rather than a smooth, even spread but is reasonably bright. There is no left or right adjustment apart from moving them along the handlebar and I still need to experiment as I could not see the edge of the road clearly. This light is probably better for urban riding where its more of a requirement to be seen, rather than to see. I like the charging stand and the rear lights are good, especially as its a single mode switch - press it once and the light comes on, press it again and it goes off. You don't have to press it 10 times to get to the right mode. I would have chosen a different front light but could not find a suitable, or reasonably priced, rechargeable rear light on its own.
