Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous GOOD PRODUCT
It is very small unit, quality is very good, duration are about average, one trick: once the charge is complete remove from the charger quickly as the unit will keep flashing till the battery reach the safety maximun level

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Mistakenly harsh
I was a bit harsh earlier due to my own mistake - the run time for the front light is 5 hours flashing, which is just about right - so I'm giving it 5 stars this time to balance it out.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Great output, poor battery life
I bought both the front and rear versions of this light because I wanted something light and rechargeable. They look great and are very compact and easy to use. The leds in these things are very bright. In fixed mode they provide a reasonable amount of light at close range. In flashing mode can be seen a long way off. The flashing sequence and the brightness can combine to create a nauseous feeling in unlit areas - seriously. I take a couple of stars off because of the battery life - I use these on my commute to work (45 mins each way) and on full charge and in flashing mode I am lucky if I get 4 hours battery life. I have never got close to the alleged 12 hours flashing on the product info. It is a shame that there is no indicator for the battery charge. I have discovered that the light just turns itself off when the battery is running low - which isn't always immediately apparent, particularly at dawn. Since I use the light mainly as a warning for oncoming people/traffic this is an issue. The annoying this is that after the light has had a little 'rest' for about 5-10 minutes I can turn it on again and it will flash again for another 15-20 minutes (albeit weakly). I do like the convenience of having several recharging options, so overall I am happy with the light.
