Rated 3 out of 5 by Domski Poor charge indication
I bought one of these back in September in preparation for commuting through winter. Initially I was happy as the light was solidly built and provided an excellent beam or visibility in flash mode. The problem I have found is that the charge indicator is woeful changing from green to orange after about 45 mins in flash mode and within minutes in constant. I've tested it and it will last a couple more hours but gives no real indication of when the light is actually going to run out. I plan to return it for a replacement which I hope will be better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Billbadblack Good Road Light at a reasonable Price
I received this 2 days after ordering it, so I was very pleased with the service from Chain Reaction.
The light seems very well made out of metal and comes with 2 different sized handlebar clips and a USB cable for charging, which can be done either from your computer or from a phone charger, so very practical.
There are loads of different settings of light output, the brightest of which is good for dark country lanes, and the lowest flashing mode is good for in town. I've had cars flashing their headlights at me presumably because the light is shining in ther eyes, however it does say not to look directly at the bulb, so I just needed to turn the light more downwards.
Can't speak about the longevity of the batteries as I've not had it long.
