Strengths:    Longer runtime then C-cell battery powered lights
Quick-release mount

Weaknesses:    Big and heavy
Much shorter battery life compared to LED lights while not being considerably brighter

Bottom Line:   
This light is ment to be seen by, not to see with. It might be inexpensive at first but the battery changes will add up in the long run. You're better off buying a white LED light which are much more noticeable and have much longer battery life.

Strengths:    Very inexpensive, very durable and decent battery life, easy to remove and re-attatch

Weaknesses:    Kinda heavy with the D cells in it, pain in the butt to change batteries

Bottom Line:   
This is a great light for the price. You can buy better, but when is this not the case? I am quite satisfied with this product and the only thing that sucks is I can't find this model anywhere anymore. I would definately buy another.
