2.0 out of 5 stars Should have taken notice of the reviews., 6 Oct. 2012

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Knog Skink 4 Led Rear Light (Sports)
Did a lot of research for this in various bike magazines, websites etc. It's only when you read reviews from actual customers/product users that you realise whether it was/is a good buy or not. Sadly, I only have myself to blame and bought this product. Looks stylish, very bright LED's, lots of different flashing modes to play with, various colour selection available and simple to fix onto the bike. That's about it. I bought this to put on my winter training road bike. I went out for a ride and it got slightly wet in the rain, the LED's went very dim. A car driver pointed this out when I had stopped at some traffic lights, otherwise I would have not known until I got home.
It is most definitely NOT waterproof. The rubber around the light cluster doesn't seal properly hence, dampness gets through and condensation builds up in the plastic cover.
I notified the Seller via Amazon immediately who asked me to return the product. I did so which cost me £3 posting. I received a replacement.
I will give the new one a go but can't see it lasting long.

Glad I read these reviews. I've been experiencing that problem but thought it was the batteries.. on my Cateye! Where to turn now? The switch on my Fibre Flare's broken and that used to suffer with water ingress as well..
