Fragile, falls off, turns itself on.

Had this clipped to a cycle bag. If you put your bag down, the switch will press up against the bag and turn the light on, where it will sit all day running down the batteries. The light itself has a habit of falling apart if not clipped together firmly, and will fall apart if dropped. The bag clip is just a hard plastic tab, it doesn't actually clip with any pressure. The light falls off when you put the bag down, and it also falls off when riding. The last I saw of this light was a scatter of plastic on the road behind me when it fell off the bag and broke apart. The car behind had to brake before it get run over. I scooped the bits up, waved thanks to the car for stopping, and binned it when I got home. It lasted under 2 weeks. Didn't use the seatpost mount, but it's not the best designed thing. Rubber bands would be better.

Bike Lights Guide

What are bike lights?

Bike lights are vital accessories which attach to your handlebars, seatpost, helmet, bag or jersey. Their function is simple – to help you to see and be seen.

Who needs bike lights?

Everyone needs bike lights! It’s a legal requirement to use front and rear lights on your bike between sunset and sunrise, but they are also useful when visibility is poor – in the fog for example.

What are the choices?

Light technology is ever evolving and the choice is enormous. Always think “the brighter the better” and look for a higher lumen output when choosing. There are lights that run on batteries or beams which can be recharged via plug or a handy USB socket (great for topping up at work). Some lights have battery packs and most have a selection of modes to choose from. You’ll definitely need the brightest lights if you ride wooded trails as you’ll really need to see where you’re going!

What should I buy with them?

Spare batteries are handy if your bike runs on these, as is a charger if it’s rechargeable. Spare mounts are always useful, especially if you have more than one bike. A helmet mount points the beam where you’re looking, rather than the direction your bike is pointing.

Anything else?

Don’t get caught out – a spare back up light is a great purchase in case your ride goes on longer than anticipated or the lights go out earlier than expected.
