I purchased this item in part due to the minimalst design and the good reviews. The light died within weeks. I charged it regularly ad indicated. I used it normally: monted on the seat post and turned on and off as needed. Nothing crazy. The bsttery stopped charging after a couple of weeks. I tried different sources and no luck. There is no physical damage at all. I tried submitting a warranty claim and i was told this model is problematic. Im supposed to get a replacement in a few weeks. If it worked longer id recommend but not rught now based on .y experience.
Bright tail light that stay charged.
It took me a while to figure out how to remove the light from the clip to charge it, and I was worried that the light might fall out while I was riding, but I got over that. So far so good.
They are easy to install on the seatstay or on the pocket of the Jersey. I tend to have one on my Jersey as it grabs the attention of motorists easy being up high. The best part is just putting them into the USB port to charge and they last several hours. I have three of them and use all of them!
I was A bit hesitant about the retention system. Itï¿½s just a simple little magnet that holds a light to the seat post clamp. It just seems so flimsy like it would fall out however Iï¿½ve written many many miles and it holds very very well. The light could be a little bit brighter but I find itï¿½s quite adequate and less youï¿½re very bright sunlight oh no I really like this light
It took me a bit to figure out how to plug it into the USB to recharge it, but once I got that it has been a great value that lasts through 60-70 mile rides easily.
Brighter than expected for 20 lumens--good enough for daytime use. Retention looks flimsy but so far works well, even on rough pavement. Very light weight with slim profile.
