Review: Cheap, and you get what you pay for

- Very cheap.
- Also doubles as a flashlight.
- Flashing mode is decent (similar to Planet Bike’s Super Flash mode).
- Adjustable lens zoom changes beam from a small spot to an even smaller spot.
- Mount is absurdly large and not very stable.
- Uses 3 AAA batteries in a little canister with small contact area. Sometimes while riding the light flashes off for a moment when riding over bumps, because the battery holder loses contact.
- The adjustable lens is almost pointless, because the beam is too tight even at the widest setting.
- Overall build quality is mediocre at best.
- No voltage regulation, so the beam gets significantly dimmer as the batteries drain.
- Actual lumen output is less than half of claimed output.
This is another off-brand light from China with a high brightness claim and a low build quality. Although the price makes it tempting, the overall cost of ownership will be higher when you factor in how quickly it goes through AAA batteries, and I don’t trust this light to last very long.
