Strengths:    Bright, really like the side lamps for extra visibility. Standard AA batteries.

Weaknesses:    Falls out of handlebar clip.

Bottom Line:   
Lamp failed after just 1 year of use. The internal clips busted and the head of the lamp no longer stays on. Going to check what the warranty is all about, otherwise I would not recommend the light to anyone except for the side red flashers.

Strengths:    Bright light for the money. Very durable light.

Weaknesses:    The handlebar mounting bracket does not hold the light on the bar very well.

Bottom Line:   
The light tends to shut off by itself on rough surfaces. The light often falls out of the bracket. It is very difficult to find a black light in the dark when it falls off the bar and shut itself off. I had it happen to me twice on my last ride. I ended up finding some electrical tape to attach it to the bar so I could finish my ride. That light it produces for the money it great. They just need to figure out how to keep it on and attached to the bar.
