Cateye volt 300,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: CATEYE Volt 300 Cycle Light (Sports)
Until recently, a light of this power would set you back over £100. At rep of £49, this represents good value. At 300 lumens with a good beam spread, this is a usable light for unlighted roads, depending on your speed. The unit is only 120g but is solid and very well made. The mounting bracket is easy to fit and the mini USB charging socket is comparable with my smart phone charger.
The battery life of only 3 hours is not brilliant but you can get 11 hrs on flashing mode.

Thanks for the helpful review. The battery life of three hours is for the light on the highest setting of course, which I think is excellent for a 300 lumen light of such a compact size... in comparison, the latest Knog Blinder 3 (300 lumen@ RRP of £70) has a 1 hour run-time! There are also medium and low modes on the Cateye, as well as the two flashing modes, so depending on the types/combinations of rides we're doing, the battery can last many hours. I'm thinking that if we want to ride more than three hours in the pitch dark, we may be wanting to look at a different kind of light in the first place (or buying an extra battery for this one, of course!) :)
