Strengths:    Light weight, one piece, bright.

Weaknesses:    Battery gets loose, Falls out. Mounts are ridiculously hard to remove light from.

Bottom Line:   
Nice thought. Design sucks! Redesign the mount and battery and it might be really good. Otherwise useless!

Strengths:    Unbelievably bright for its size.Used it twice in total darkness on bike trail. Could easily see road imperfections at 120 feet.BUT ,...the battery falls out on its own.Happened twice .Was lucky it fell in a pocket of my cycling bag.Product apparently already off the market.

Weaknesses:    Unreliable design . battery will fall out on the trail.
Totally unacceptable at this price.

Bottom Line:   
Find another design. I don't trust this thing to cross the sidewalk.

Strengths:    Lightweight wireless light that can be kept in your pack. Comes with helmet and bar mounts. Brighter than expected.

Weaknesses:    Tough to disengage from both helmet and bar mounts.

Bottom Line:   
I keep it in my camelback and leave the mount on my helmet (the bar mount stays on my commuter). My original bar mounted LED was good enough to get me off the mountain safely but when I use this light on my helmet in tandem with the bar LED, I can now descend at full speed. Worth every penny, and I'm getting more weekday rides in now.
