Had to return it... poor design turns itself on at the slightest touch.
on 13 August 2013
First of all I have to say I love Knog lights. I use 2 Frogs on my bike and love them so thought I would upgrade the front light to the Gekko. I have to park my bike in a public car park while I'm in the office so I have to take the lights off and put them in my bag. After using the Gekko for a week I found that literally every single day it had turned itself on inside my bag at some point and massively drained the batteries. The large front power button sounds good in theory but it requires such a small amount of pressure to turn on that it will inevitably get bumped and turned on without you knowing about it. It is a major design flaw that completely ruins what is otherwise a great light. I had to return mine as it would have cost me a fortune in batteries. To their credit Amazon refunded it without a fuss. Hopefully Knog addresses this problem at some point.
