Cheap and cheerful, but effective
on 27 August 2013
These are two very cheap, very simple, single-LED lamps in a brittle plastic casing with a loop of elastic, ie nothing special but they work and that's what counts!
Each lamp has three settings - on, slow flashing or rapid flashing. They won't light your way on a dark road but they do help to make you visible to other traffic. I wear a set on my bike helmet (white to the front, red to the rear) and have threaded a second set onto my bike seatpost and handlebar.
These lights won't replace 'proper' lights but anything which helps to increase a cyclist's visibility has to be a good thing and at this low price they're a gift.
There seems to be some variation in the batteries used. Mine use 2 x CR1220 batteries. Others seem to use 2 x CR2032 or AG13/LR44.
