I’ve owned many different bike light and this one is by far the best I’ve had! The light beam is very flood so you don’t have two straight beams but a wall of light which extends for about 10 meters in front of you. This makes biking in the dark a piece of cake. People somehow always go for the brightest lights which in my opinion is a mistake. There is such thing as too much and this light comes close to that. This light is so bright that although it creates a very well lit area in front of you, behind that you won’t see a thing because your eyes can’t cope with the huge contrast between the two. It’s like looking into the sun and then walking into your garage. Changes are you stumble over something because your eyes are blacked out.
The design of the light is very nice and someone finally understood that NO ONE needs the stupid useless flash option. Instead you can choose low/mid/high, 10 steps from low to high or the flash option (which in my opinion they could have dropped). By pushing the button on the back for a couple of seconds you can switch the light of. If you push it on and hold it you can ‘scroll’ to the three options.
I bought the ‘More capacity 8* 18650 Pack’ and it lasts for more than two hours on full power. I haven’t even seen the on/off button going to red (warning that you are under 40%) so I assume it will even go a lot longer. Despite never getting an answer on my question what the difference is between a hot waterproof pack and a more capacity pack I can tell you that the more capacity pack is well designed. The batteries are shrink rapped twice, are placed in a thick rubber housing which in its term is inside the holder. The rubber housing has a separate bottom so the batteries can be put inside of it. This isn’t glued so my guess is that this is the difference between a hot waterproof pack and a normal pack. The holder itself is of a thick fabric and has a long flap with Velcro which allows you to flip the lid over your steer or upper tube of the bike and have more than enough left to fix it to your battery pack.
- Small design
- Good flood light
- 3-mode option
- Love the battery housing
- Small design can create heat issues in the summer
- Connection between light cable and battery pack isn’t screwed in place but simply pushed in
