I'd like to offer some advice to address the feedback of this product.
1. Slow delivery:
Check the sellers location: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/offer-listing/B006V1T5IK/ref=dp_olp_new_mbc?ie=UTF8&condition=new
Most are Hong Kong or China which can take weeks. For a little extra you can purchase from a UK seller.
It appears that some people are getting adapters and others are not. This could be due to either the colour or the seller.
I purchased a blue set and it came with a black plastic adapter to convert Presta to Schrader valve.
3. Light Problems:
There could be a spacing problem between the batteries and the light component so I recommend the following two ideas:
Each light comes with 3 batteries but I found that if there are 4 batteries in the light then it responds better.
Alternatively I have had success using a combination of batteries: 1x 386 (AG12), 2x 389 (AG10).
Sometimes the batteries are too tight to the light component. I recommend the following three ideas:
Loosen the unit (light and bottom) slightly.
unscrew the light from the valve slightly. I found that the Presta valve was pushing on the batteries from the bottom.
Alternatively use the two ideas above. I found 4 batteries worked on 1 light but not great on the other.
To eliminate any other causes for the light problem, try new batteries.
The batteries are 389/389A (AG10) which can be purchased from most pound shops.
