These are lovely looking lights that are clearly the result of thoughtful design process, so why do they turn on so easily when not in use? The first pair I bought were stolen pretty quickly because I left them on my bike, and they're desirable looking things. Not to be caught out again, I kept a second pair in my bag when not in the saddle, only to find that the push button turns on with little encouragement and swiftly results in flat batteries (which cost about £4 to replace). My girlfriend bought me a plastic soapdish in which to keep the lights when not in use, but it made little difference. The switch still managed to be bumped into the on position. I find it particularly irksome that the designer has paid so much attention to the aesthetics at the expense of utility. A switch, though less pretty than a button, would have been a much more intelligent choice. Unless you're planning to keep them on your bike at all times then you should probably avoid them.
