This light is amazing, especially when you factor in the price! 200 lumens on its brightest setting makes it (just) bright enough to use as a headlight on unlit country roads although its not quite far reaching enough for high speed work in the dark. Its flashing mode can be seen from almost a mile away making it a great safety addition to any cyclists bike, I guarantee you will be seen with this baby! Its also tiny in size, charges up quickly, easy to operate - I cannot recommend it more highly, the best £50 ish you will spend on bike gear.
Crazy bright. Has to be seen to be believed. It totally illuminates an entire broad cycleway, which has no lighting anywhere near it so would be pitch black. I can see everything, every bump etc. Charging is very convenient with the USB. Button is very tricky, borderline impossible with gloves on, but this means it won't get turned on by accident in a bag/pocket. Can't be more pleased. You won't regret it.
Edit: Lost a star due to battery life being far less than it should be, faulty I guess. Which normally isn't a problem, as you can get it returned/repaired.. unless you buy from Y-Frame Discounts, who will try to wriggle out of their legal obligations..
This tiny little light as other reviewers have noted packs a powerful punch. It fits in seconds and is highly secure and minutely adjustable. It charges quickly via USB and appears to hold its charge well. I cycle a good portion of my commute down rural tracks where there is no lighting at all and I find the Meteor more than adequate for the job. My only slight quibble is having to cycle (no pun intended) through all the different modes each time you switch on, though perhaps I need to re read the instructions! Great value and very neat, just don't look into it directly!
Bought this light after good magazine reviews and on first use couldn't have agreed more, powerful beam with good width, good battery life, and very compact and light. After 3 weeks of problem free use the first of 2 problems began, firstly the casing began cracking around one the screws, secondly battery life had noticeably declined slightly. The first fault I managed to repair with a touch of glue but the second I have now just had to put down as one of those things, still at this price this light has a brilliant beam and I would recommend it.
Commute 20 miles a day all weathers and this is going well into its second winter. Great beam lights dark cycle lane and the flashing settings are great when back on the main road. Recharge from computer twice a week via USB while working. Cannot recommend highly enough if you commute down a dark country lane or cycle lane. Better than anything I have bought before.
Comes with all the connections to fit to helmet. Gives a great light and is light. Easy to recharge and has many settings. Only problem does not appear to conform to British standards for bike lights but good value for the money.
