    Wow. Very Bright. Nice Beam., January 12, 2015

    I can’t recommend this light enough. I commute 20 miles each direction, three days a week. I prefer it to hitting the gym, haha. In the darker months I need a light that will let me see at night and let me be seen in the day. The multifunction of this light works very well for my needs. I don’t always have to run it on high, in fact the medium setting is enough for a lot of my riding, and the two blinking options are great if i need a little light for me, while still projecting a flash to traffic.

    I was able to find a good deal on a back up battery and the charging pod. I then can keep a fresh battery on me and switch if needed. The light is strong up until it runs out and the LED gives you ample warning that you are running low on juice.

    For road use I don’t think you need to step up beyond the lumens of a car headlight (~800-900) for your bicycle, in fact I feel that some of the 1600+ lumen systems are dangerous for the “dazzle” effect you may give traffic. Off-road is a different story, get all of the light you need. This is plenty bright. I really can’t see why a commuter would need more than this. Unless you regularly hit 45 mph on your commute, you’re not overrunning this beam.

    As for the light on the road, it’s a great pattern with no noticeable hotspot or dull areas, it’s even and the mount is sturdy. You can upgrade to a helmet mount. I may get the 300 for my helmet just for a little look-around light, but the jury is out on that. I don’t need to look anymore like a spaceship.

    So in summary:
    -Great option for commuters
    -Shares a USB charger with my LG Smartphone, so easy to charge
    -Bright enough without being blindingly bright
    -Good value, especially with spare batteries

    I recommend it fully.

    Very nice commute light and a strong backup/secondary trail light, January 5, 2015

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    Very nice commute light and a strong backup/secondary trail light. Both work extremely well on your handle bars and are easily removable when you head into work or the store and don’t want someone walking off with the light. The mount stays put and the light just slides back into the mount when you’re ready to go again. Fairly quick recharge, but use wall outlet for USB and not computer – or get the optional recharge unit.
    Optional: for a helmet mount, this is slightly too big for this amount of lighting. Get a smaller light with a remote battery pack and carry that battery in your jersey pocket or in your backpack. GloWorm, Light and Motion, and Niterider all make outstandingly smaller, lightweight and powerful helmet light versions. You’ll want more light for serious off-road or for an extended deep woods outing. While the CatEye has optional battery you can carry with and change out quickly, you still gotta charge it and carry it with. Just saying. Love mine for what I use it for.
