    Strengths:    Bright, IP-68 connector strength, runtime (2:32 on my Lithium pack), great helmet mount

    Weaknesses:    -Fuel Gauge failed after 6 months
    -Charger transformer makes loud buzzing sound (sounds like a blown diode inside)
    -Handlebar clamp is not as well made compared to older Jetlites clamp
    -Battery pack is big, if you mount it behind the post, it tends to swing side to side

    Bottom Line:   
    This is a great light, Jetlites was always great.

    But because of all failures on the accessories, it has really let me down. The headlamp design is perfect as it was developed by Jim Taylor many years ago. These newly designed fuel gauges, newly shaped battery packs, newer sources and imported transformers are just not reliable.

    Therefore no matter how much I like this light, I have to give it 4/5.
