Strengths:    Pretty bright for a battery light and better than any of the commercial LED lights. Reasonably well made too. Runs best on NiMH rechargeable batteries.

Weaknesses:    Probably wouldn't survive being dropped. Battery life only 1 hour 10 mins with NiCd batteries - about 2 hours with NiMH. Flashing LEDs are rather dim and barely visible with main lamp on.

Bottom Line:   
A good cheap battery light if you can find one.

Strengths:    Goodlooking, bright, practical. Both Halogen and LED. Battery indicator.

Weaknesses:    not found any

Bottom Line:   
I use it as a backuplight. The halogen lamp is brighter than similar products from Cateye and Smart. I have only found 1 similar light that offers the same brightness, Sigma Ellipsoid. In urban areas you switch to LED and preserve batteries. Actuallly, you can have both halogen and LED on at the same time, which is nice in fog or heavy rain. The light is run by AA-batteries which is most efficient comparing size/weight and discharge-time. I also use this bikelight as a flashlight due its nice design. It fits nicely in your hand.
