Rated 5 out of 5 by MrPal "oh my god that light is so bright" often heard!
Never before have I felt more compelled to leave a review than I have after using this product. For only a little bit more cash than entry level lights, this light really makes you seen.
What really attracted me to this light was the 12hr battery life in flash mode - for me it means fewer charging cycles and less hassle.
The light is incredibly bright - to give you an example, I could see traffic cones lighting up that were more than 150m in front of me (measured the distance on Google maps when I got home) and hence I would have been seen from that distance at least. Whole road signs light up when cycling past. I have positioned the light facing at a downwards angle so as not to completely blind other road users.
Hearing people make the comment in the title of this review is a common occurrence on my 60 mile weekly commute through London.
I mostly use it in flashing mode, but in constant mode it illuminates the road ahead nicely so you can see where you're going and avoid potholes etc.
It's very nicely built and has a premium feel.
One thing I would say is that the charging port is the older mini USB instead of the now more common Micro USB.
Highly recommend this light, at this price point I think it's probably the best you can get.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Skorpion очень яркий фонарь
Фонарь отличный. Крепление держит крепко и его удобно регулировать. Яркость даже выше того что ожидал от него. Если направить с наклоном градусов 15 то ещё пара человек сможет на великах впереди ехать и им будет хватать света, но тогда встречных людей будет слепить.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Budgieman Very bright, quick to charge and well made
I've had mine for 2 winters now and it is brilliant. It charges via USB so I can charge it when at work. There is a low charge indicator red light so you don't get caught short. One charge last several hours. Also it is very bright and to start with I had it set a bit high resulting in drivers flashing me.
It feels a good solid unit and hasn't been effected by any of the downpours it has experienced.
All the roads I use have street lights so can't say how effective it would be on unlit roads.
In summary very happy and ideal for my city commute.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Small and bright, but...
in constant beam modes it produces interference that disrupts my Garmin GPS reception. This leads to erratic track logs and can result in lose of satellite detection in poor GPS areas.
As a commuter light it is as light as the Cateye 3 LED HL-135, and only just wider. The flashing mode at 250lm is visible from a very long way away - at a junction I had a car driver say that it's bright, my response was that at least he'd seen it :-)
The opti-cude lens flattens the top of the beam so that you can point the light further ahead without over dazzling oncoming vehicles.
By changing modes between flash/low/high to suit the road lighting, you can get a good long night ride through town and countryside.
Only 3-stars due to the GPS interference, get a metal case light to stop this effect.
