Lift the Veil.
Shed the crippling shroud of night with the durable, versatile, and efficient Swift 450 from NiteRider. The view enhancing Collimater Lens combined with 5 modes of illumination that span 20 to 450 lumens and 1.5 to 25 hours of runtime, yield a particularly well-rounded bike light that’s suitable for all kinds of riders and environments. The Swift 450 features fiberglass reinforced plastic, making it both lightweight and durable, ideal for long-term, heavy use. To ensure preparedness, the power button doubles as a battery level indicator, changing from blue to red when there’s 15-20% battery remaining. Equipped with Intellicharge™ technology, the Swift 540 charges via USB cable at twice the speed so you can resume use in as little two hours. Having met the ANSI/NEMA FL-1 standards in light output, runtime, and water resistance, you can trust this light is the real deal.

Good light that could use simpler mode change

I bought this to replace a NR Lightning Bug that died at just after 2 years. I use it mostly for commuting, with some occasional night mountain biking. At full power, the light is good enough for mountain biking, but of course then it doesn't last-I was a little more than an hour into a ride when it kicked down to low power, but then it lasted more than half an hour at that level. It gets decent marks there for such a small light, especially if you combine it with a helmet light so that you don't have to use it on full power.
The main problem with this light is how the functions are changed. If you want to switch from a steady beam to blinking or vice-versa, you have to hold the button down steadily for a few seconds. This can be difficult to do while riding. The Lighting Bug just switched modes by pushing the button through the cycles, and I don't know why NR wouldn't have just done the same for this one.
