Strengths:    - cheap
- enough light to be legal on the road
- works, mostly

Weaknesses:    - cheap
- not really enough light, ever

Bottom Line:   
It's OK for an around-town light but not enough for an off-road backup light. Nice enough design, and the mount's fairly secure. If you're looking for a backup to your main light system, pass this one by in favor of something more powerful. It belongs on a hybrid in a bike lane, not in the woods.

Strengths:    Very economic, more or less light and small

Weaknesses:    The light beam isn't strong enough to iluminate your way. The support on the handle bar is very big and ugly

Bottom Line:   
It's a good choice for those who don't want to spend much money and still obtain a medium quality lantern. The light provided by this product is only good to be seen and not to see, so you should only use it on road at the evening. If you want to ride at night then you must buy a more powerful light.
