Ok, but it's worth checking the alternatives
on 30 January 2014
I've used this for a few weeks now and it's an improvement on my old light in some areas, but not in others. At this price I'd expect it to have addressed a few more things
(+) It's much brighter than my old light
(+) The USB charge facility is useful
(+) The best tool-free fitting of any light I've bought
(-) The control is so stiff I often knock the light out of alignment when trying to change settings
(-) The button to unclip the light can take some finding when you're wearing gloves.
(-) The difference between full & reduced power is very slight
(-) It uses a single LED. My previous one had 3 (so possibly some insurance if one fails)
(-) There's no side illumination to improve visibility to other road users
One final point, they quote the number of times you can expect to be able to recharge the battery. The battery appears to be replaceable and if you need one the part# is CA5336890. As at the start of 2014 this was available for £25-30.
