Rated 4 out of 5 by johnnyg Very Bright Light
This is a very bright light. It is very easy to put on the seatpost. The recharging mechanism is a little bit of a nuisance and I can only do it with my laptop USB port as it won't go into my normal PC. This is probably the only negative point I would make about this product.

Great light, bright and can be seen from quite a distance. Rubber band tears easily. 3rd one I've had replaced... Moon Comet is much better. Brighter and more durable.

Only rear light brighter than this is Moon's Shield at 60 lumens. The Blinder is sleeker and has a more eye catching flash pattern. It's so light that you can attach it to your helmet as well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Powerful!
It blinded me momentarily at first glance of the light. Yes, it's THAT powerful and no, I'm not exaggerating. This is definitely recommended for bikers who wants to be seen, both day and night.

Bought this for my wife who is a roadie, it will leave a burn in on your eyes if you look directly into the light when you are close to it, it is that bright. Visibility from distance is excellent. Only small minus I would say is the USB charger is in an awkward position which makes it difficult to plug in to a USB port on a laptop. A minor irritation compared to the performance of the product. If you want to be seen at night, buy this.

Given that (1) different people and manufactures express the measurements of height, width depth in a different orders and (2) that the measurements in whichever order do not match those on the Knog.com.au website what are the measurements for this light ?
Please do be explicit. I am particularly interested in the width as I do not like having my legs rubbing against the light when it is attached to the seatpost.
