Strengths:    Easy to use, lightweight, compact. Decent light output for it's size. Uses AA-sized batteries so alkaline or rechargeables can be used.

Weaknesses:    Handlebar mount can vibrate out of alignment on long or rough trails. Less than 2 hours on a set of freshly-charged NiMH AA's. Doesn't come with a helmet mount.

Bottom Line:   
It lights up when you turn it on and it doesn't weight a ton. It would have been nice if BLT had included the helmet mount with the kit as the Firewire 4.0 would make a nice lightweight helmet light.

P.S. If anyone knows if the emitter is regulator and what kind is used please let me know.
