Top critical review
Nice idea, poor reliability.
on 6 February 2015
I got this as a Christmas present. At first glance it looks great.
First the up sides... No problem getting it out of "demo mode". It's very small and very bright. Each mode works, the strobe is especially eye catching. The "legs" mean it can be wrapped around bike handle bars or onto something to illuminate it.
All that sounds great, however there is a downside, mine will turn itself off with any slight movement. I assume the battery connection comes loose and turns it off but I can't see where it's moving as there is a small blob of silicone inside which I assume is there to try and stop this happening. So no use on anything that moves. Of course, mine could be faulty, but I'm not inclined to spoil the present givers delight at finding something I would enjoy. I guess I'll go back to my trusty Photon Micro.
Turned out the LED is loose in its socket, so any movement causes it to switch off... went in the bin.
