Product Description

convenience factor, and the Lightning Bug is tops in it's class. Installation is simple, and the LB can be mounted on any round-ish tube on your bike; handlebars, seatpost, fork, seatstays, wherever. It can even mount securely through the vents in your helmet. One large, top-mounted button turns the light on, switches it to flash mode, and turns it off.

Strengths:    It's cheap. Fun colors! Straps onto anything very easily.

Weaknesses:    It's barely visible and eats batteries.

Bottom Line:   
1 LED with ~10 lumens output is not sufficient for cycling in traffic with texting/blind/drunk drivers. Better bet is the Niterider Lumina 350 (or higher) or similar headlight with high output. I've found the pulse flash stops traffic from cutting me off at high speeds. I can only see value in these small lights for walking/running/bike paths at dusk... and wasting batteries.

Strengths:    Ease of use, convenience and price.

Weaknesses:    I can see the self attaching band stretching out eventually.

Bottom Line:   
Easy to use, attaches easily to handlebars. No time consuming finger screw needed to attach this light. Just slip band under your bar, and slide it in to a notch on the other side. Its size is also a plus. It is great for commuters. This light stores easily. You can even keep it in your pocket. I run two of them for really dark ride. The battery can be hard to find. Its a CR 2032. Its easily found at wal-mart. But its something you wont find at a local grocery store. The battery expectancy is up to 100 hours. it weighs practically nothing, and it comes in a variety of colors. I am running a green bug, the loud color makes it easy to find in my pack.
