I realised that the on/off button is not just easily switched, it will go on the second you put it in your pocket, or bag, or hand, or -- and I am only exaggerating slightly here -- expose it to a slight breeze. I quickly realised it was going on the second I put it in my coat pocket when I got to work, and staying on all day. That explained why I only got a few days life from the batteries! Overly light buttons on back lights is a weirdly common phenomenon. Inexplicably, since it rarely affects front lights. But this one is by far the lightest touch button I have ever come across. And judging by the reviews I'm not the only one to notice it.
So, I started keeping the thing in an old plastic pot when it was in my bag, to stop anything turning it on by accident. That worked and it lasted longer... A fortnight!
It seems there is a reason it burns brighter than Hades with only 2 AAAs in it -- it is going through the power in them at a phenomenal rate. And we're talking Duracell's finest here, not el-cheapo no-brand batteries.
So, a really great light -- for two weeks. Otherwise, it's worth spending the extra money to get those brand-name lights instead. (NOW I know why they are so much more expensive...)

1. They came well packed, easy to open and with the batteries included.
2. The quality of the units is very good - well molded plastic, no sharp edges, very strong but not too difficult to open and put batteries inside. The bicycle mount is also sturdy, stiff and does not wiggle around. It is easy to take the light off the mount. At the same time the light looks pretty normal and I am hoping nobody will steal it. Will take the bet and leave it on the bike (maybe will fix it to the bike with more lovely cable ties.) Cable ties are not necessary to fix the light to the bike.
3. Very bright - can a rear light be too bright? I have two of these so am wondering if I am not blinding anybody, hope not. After all, it is most likely not brighter than a car's rear lights.
4. Indeed, the light switch is very soft. Should be clicky / microswitch based or stiffer. For me that is ok but I can imagine it becoming a problem. The location of the switch, however, makes it very easy to put the light on the helmet - using cable ties, of course.
In my view there is a fundamental issue with the sealing rubber which allowed water to creep in. Once the water was in, the light stopped working. Dried the light out and it was fine again. However it turned out that the light continued to draw current from the batteries even when turned off. This resulted in a brand new set of batteries lasting 2 days without the light even being turned on ! ....and yes I repeated the experiment with the same result.
AVOID if you think you will use this light in the rain.
Easy to install (2 minutes with a screwdriver) and with a nice amount of spare rubber so you can fit it to 99% of seat posts. It simply clamps on to the seat post and you adjust the angle before tightening it up. It hasn't worked loose on me yet, which is usually what happens to these clamps - not so on the metroflash.
It is super bright - so bright you can use it in daylight which is what I do because you can't have too much visibility when on the roads. You really need to make sure it's adjusted right because you will blind drivers at night from behind otherwise. There are two LED lenses - one gives all round side to side visibility (over 180 degrees), and one is more focused directly from behind. In this respect it's already a lot better than other lights on the market.
It seems robust and weatherproof although the mounting bracket swivels 360 degrees (not the clamp but the bit the led light attaches to) and feels a little on the cheap side. Maybe I got a duff one.
The only reason it loses a star is because of the cheaper clamp and the fact that the on/off button is so easy to press. Not normally an issue but it turns itself on in my bag once I've removed it from the bike. Flat battery = no visibility. So make sure you carry spare AAA batteries. I'd prefer a rubber switch with a harder mechanical press to turn it on - like the Smart LED lights.
If the on/off button isn't an issue for you - then this is a full 5 stars!

First of all, you shouldn't worry about whether this light is bright enough. It is. If anything, you'll worry about it being too bright. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Spencer
