    Strengths:    Bright, reliable light, plus 3 levels of brightness control

    Weaknesses:    I wish that the cord could be unplugged from the battery, so that one could remove the battery and light, but leave the wiring on the bike.
    Also, no helmet mount available.


    Bottom Line:   
    Good, high quality light, especially for the price. I used it primarily for commuting, including on pitch-black gravel roads, and it was great. It was stolen a few days ago in downtown Oly while I was at work, and I just ordered another one. Only $110 brand new from alfredebike.com! Best light for the money. If you need a light that will cast even more light, the price goes up considerably. This is a 15W halogen. Replacement bulbs are only about 10 bucks, another plus in comparison to HID bulbs.
    A helmet mount would have been nice to allow for better off road night riding.

    Strengths:    Great bright light, the fact its 6V means nothing. I feel its brighter than my Topeak that cost 50% more

    Weaknesses:    Battery size, but its not heavy
    It would be good if the handle bar mount accomodated centering the beam with raked handle bars


    Bottom Line:   
    I am from Australia, purchased this from the USA. 3rd time i ran it the smart charger died. I called Cygo expecting hassles but they sent me a new charger to Australia straight away. Its now working flawless. So more than anything the customer serving is fantastic
