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.

2. Presta/Adapter:
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.

Order a pair of these for the kids.
I ordered Yellow and they did look yellow but the light was BLUE! As others have said blue lights are not allowed on the highway unless you are emergency responder.

These run on 3 x AG10 batteries. These are included and you need to unscrew to remove the plastic insulation. Any movement then day or night makes the lights flash.

Pros
Cheap. 2 delivered for 60 pence. Movement activated and the wheels do light up. Mine came with an adapter but I didn't need these on schrader (car type) valves

Cons
Cheap plastic. Not waterproof. I can't see these lasting enough to replace the batteries.

OK as a party bag/stocking filler at this price but not for commuting or off road bike use.

Excellent concept let down by poor engineering design leading to inconsistent performance.
