Strengths:    bright, cheap, light, lasts long

Weaknesses:    screw rattled out while I was riding and now I don't use the light: it doesn't grip the handlebar and spins around. I went out and spent a lot more on a cateye and love it!

Bottom Line:   
the screw is a design fault. Either the manufacturer should supply replacement screws or redesign this so the screw can't rattle out and disappear.

Strengths:    BRIGHT! Low cost ($20) and small

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
During the week, not only can I not get to the trails but I don't get a chance to ride untill well after dark (I ride around the city to stay in shape for trail on the weekends.) I needed a light for night use and I wanted something inexpensive yet bright. After reading tons of reviews I settled on the iPulse and I am very happy I did. Light output is amazing and battery life is good too - I couldn't be happier with this product.

If you are on a budget, consider this light - I don't think you will be dissapointed.

Strengths:    Nice QR bracket, Single button operation is really easy to use, Amazingly surprising amount of light

Weaknesses:    4 AAA batteries, Strobe setting so fast it makes you want to seizure

Bottom Line:   
Hey guys, I just bought this light as an emergency light at the Fred Meyer (crashed and broke my good one) and I must say, I don't think I'll be spending big bucks on a light ever again. The light I ended up picking up is the Bell iPulse HD LED bike light and I have to admit, it's as good or better than some of the $150 + lights I've used. If I remember correctly it was a whopping $19.99 +tax. I figured I was buying a one time use light to get home, then going to have to buy a good one later but I'm not going to do that now. I know some lights are to be seen and some lights are to be able to see and this one definitely meets the criteria for that latter. It was pitch black out for my ride home (about 15miles) and half of that was through the woods and I'm telling you, this light is amazing. I would recommend it to any one who rides at night and at $20, if you crash and kill it, it's no big deal. I wouldn't recommend this light for a hard core night rider but for a "see where I'm going ride" it works perfectly. For the price of some of the "good" lights out there, you could buy 7 of these and wow if you ran all 7 at a time, you wouldn't even know it was night time. I do have to admit the batteries kind of suck and I haven't really had it long enough to know how fast it drains em, but the amount of light they put out is insane for 20 bones. It could use a low beam but it isn't a deal breaker, the strobe function seems a little fast to me (definitely not for epileptics), but overall I would buy this light again and probably again, but that would be it.
