Rated 1 out of 5 by AndyN Not worth the money
I have had this light for 1 month now and it fails to light up. Everytime i go over bump it flickers and switches off. NOT waterproof what so ever.

This is a very bright light and when using this fresh batteries it is amazingly bright. It's rugged and well built. Have been using this for about 2 years and bought another one for my other bike.

I'm browsing rear lights because I lost my Blackburn Mars yesterday. The main unit pops off from the rear with a coin. I must have gone over a bump and it popped off. This happened a month ago but I retraced my steps and found it. But this time, no luck. Waste of money.

As a few other commenters here, I have experienced that those things drain the batteries whithin a few hours, even in "off" mode. Basically, a fundamental design or fabrication flaw, which makes them unfit for purpose.
Especially so, when compared with my old Smart, bought in 2005 (!!!), which is still going strong despite heavy abuse, and just doesn't seem to use any power at all (I get over a year's worth of daily commute out of a single battery pair!).

Absolutely satisfied owner. It looks cool, it works great. Often my friends tell me they're blinded by it when biking beside me. The on/off switch is a bit too small.

I have this light a few years & I am very happy with it. Sturdy finish very bright light,the fixing bracket is good quality. As a few other reviewers have mentioned use good quality batteries and this offers excellent visibility and long battery life.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous great light let down by poor quality clip
The light itself is great. Compact and super bright. Decent battery run time too. However, after about 10 months of use the clip that attaches the light to the bracket just failed through fatigue. Frustrating as the light itself is still fine but its now pretty useless as can't be attached to anything.
