Good illumination but flawed design
on 2 October 2015
I have the front and rear versions of the 'Blinder'. Well named, I've been berated by other cyclists for having lights which are too bright. As lights they are better suited to making sure that you are seen by other road users, (really bright) but if you cycle unlit paths and tracks not so good for seeing where you're going, no beam. The charge lasts well though the warning light comes on just 10 minutes before the light went out. They are small and light, so easy to take with you when not on your bike.
The three star rating is because after about 2.5 year use the rubber straps which are used to fix the light to the cycle have both snapped. This means that you can't fix the light onto anything and it is nicely crafted junk. If the strap could be replaced I would have paid for a new one because the light is so good but this is a bad design flaw that can't easily be overcome.
