I just got it last week – a local shop sends out a 50% off any product in their store and that’s what I got… so I paid 50$ for it! It is amazing! It’s small enough to put in a pocket for around town when you don’t want to leave it sitting out on the bike if you run in for a beer or dinner, yet it’s plenty bright for around town. I think it would make a great secondary light for trail use – perhaps helmet mounted. The charger is easy to use and the USB charger makes it easy to pack in my bag for work and then I leave the wall charger at home. Also, the USB charger makes this compatible with a Solio solar charger and for long tours it’s perfect!

Bang for buck this really can’t be beat!

Was using this regularly for my 1 hr. commute (I have the 195 lumen model) and the beam of light is fairly strong and focused. The heavy bands it has to mount on the bars or helmet also work fine although I don’t think it works well to take it on and off when you leave the bike in a place where someone might grab the light. My gripe was with the switchgear: when I came off the trail into the city, I always change from high beam to flash, and when the weather got cold, the rubber switch got hard and my hands got cold, and it was a real pain to get this to go to blink mode (instead of it just being in the rotation, the blink mode requires that you hold down the button for 4 + seconds). I switched to an even higher lumen Cygolite which doesn’t have any of those issues, and a better lumens per dollar price.

This light is great. Evenly spread out and a bright light for its size. Light weight and fits all my bike handle bars. Comes with a good size extension cord for a helmet. Very focused and is a great buy.
