Good things first : on the strongest setting illumination is good, the first two stages are pretty useless.
The light seems weatherproof. I have washed the bike and rode in the rain without any water getting into the light tube or lens.
Sturdy main body.
Bad : poor quality rubber strap that is either too tight or too loose. But that is not the only problem - its fragile. My strap broke while riding the bike and the tension of the strap made that light fly away from the bike. Thankfully it landed on the shoulder and not middle of the highway.
Battery life is below par too. At the highest setting expect exactly half the run time than claimed. So if you are relying on it on your night ride, better look elsewhere. Even on the lowest setting the light lasts about 5 hours on a full charge. All in all, an incredibly mediocre performance in the battery department.
At Rs. 2000, it is not a bottom of the barrel product either so I am surprised the strap gave in approximately 3 months (bought on Oct 20, 2021) making the light useless.
The light is bright with different modes and its easy to attach to the handle bar. That was probably the most important factor that I look at when I am purchasing a night light. With the highest light setting, the charge lasts for 2-3 hours which is the only downside for this product. So if you are doing brevets, please carry a secondary light. Another feature which is good is the charge indicator which turns red if there is less than 20% charge. I think this acts as a reminder to charge the light after a ride.
The delivery was top notch and arrived on time, was able to test it a few days and took it for a long race and it paid out very well. highly recommend to every cyclist who rides in dark
This light is brighter like a car's light and it throws to a great distance. Even the lower mode would suffice in traffic.
I only suspect the mounts life, as it is made of rubber and we need to pull it and lock it with a small hook to make it sit stably on the handlebar/
1. Can't charge while the light is on. (i.e. while riding)
(I read in the description saying "charge on the go". But you can't).
2. Even at the lowest brightness, it lasts only for 5 to 6 hours. Unlike the proclaimed 8 to 10 hours. So if you're planning to ride for more than 4 hours in the dark, better to carry another light. Cause you can't charge while it while it's on.
