    izone 850

    I bought this light as I need a bright light to spot the potholes on dimly lit roads on commutes up to 40 minutes as well as wanting to be seen. The light is plenty bright enough and I love being able to see well ahead and avoid those potholes. Battery life is adequate for my use and I carry a storage battery to recharge it between trips if I don't have access to mains. The fitting is a real pain so I have unscrewed it and fastened it to a Catseye fitting that slides and locks onto a carrier on the handlebars - it is now rock steady and I don't have to worry about it falling off or slipping down. One bizarre thing though, it interferes with my bike computer and so I have had to move it along the handlebar away from the computer. In fast flashing mode my computer says I am travelling at 45mph, slow flashing mode at 11mph and steady mode 0mph! Moving it has rectified the problem. All in all, a very bright light at a bargain price.

    Perfect

    TLDR: Incredibly bright light on pitch black commute, good options inc dimmed and flashing for less dark areas. Easy to take on/off bike. Battery life allowed me aprox 1hr 10 mins on full power constant mode before turning to "amber - extended run time mode) where i switched back to dimmed mode to ensure it didn't run out. Now charge at work inbetween my 50 minute rides. Perfect unless you need a longer battery life. Detail: Think this light is great. I commute to work 50 minutes each way in pitch black country lanes/bridleways (and about 10 mins of lit roads). The brightest constant mode is perfect for this and lets me see perfectly a good 100m ahead at least. Feels like i'm using my car's full beam light. The dimmed mode is good for some lit roads I use where I don't want to blind drivers (yes, it's that bright. It makes street signs reflect in the way they do if i use full beams in my car) but still want a bit of extra light. I use the blinking mode (a slow blink rather than an annoying strobe) when it's pretty well lit and i want to use it more to increase my visibility to other road users. I will address the concerns raised in the only other current review where they stated it doesn't stay in place. In my 50 minute rides, I have had no issues whatsoever with the torch moving during the ride and I am off-road on bumpy tracks as well as some speedier stretches on the roads. The torch is easy to mount (the strap comes separated from the torch, dont do what i did and spend ages trying to force it the wrong way into the torch - it is a very simple way to setup that takes less than 5 seconds). Once the strap is on the torch you can stretch it round the handlebars easily and it is easily removed for security when finished. The product itself feels very sturdy, solid, and is well constructed. If you look on the izone website it details the methods they use and it all sounds good to me :-) (no i dont work for/get paid by them, i just did my research) The only negative for me is the battery life. I use mostly the brightest constant function on my 50 minute rides. I found that when doing this, about half way back on my return trip (so roughly 1 hr 10 minute use) the light on the back turns "amber" meaning "extended run time mode" and is one step before a red light meaning "reserve". I then turned down the power to the dimmed constant mode (still enough to see by in pitch black paths but just isn't quite as nice to use, it doesn't have that incredible brightness that makes me love the torch so much). With it in dimmed mode, the light turned back to green, and i made it home with no problems with a total runtime of 1hr 40 mins for the day. Due to this, I will be charging the torch when at work so i can use the full brightness setting on the way home. I don't know if it would have gone to the red light or ran out but i dared not risk it! Still, for the price, brightness, and build quality this is a more than acceptable payoff for me. The only reason i could understand anyone wanting to pay more for another product is if they want longer battery life, other than that, this torch is perfect.

    DONT !

    Rubbish light,the mount is fiddly and it doesn't stay in place due to the"feature" allowing it to be moved to an angle. Also the charge dissipated rapidly. I used it as a 2nd backup for a while but it had no charge when called upon!
