    Strength:

    price, looks

    Weakness:

    connections, water ingress, on-off switch

    I was quite fond of the Gator 105 ... but after 1 year the connections between the light and the battery pack failed.

    The connections were never great. Initially they were tight/stiff and really difficult to handle using gloves. I think the repeated connection/disconnection to connect the battery to the charger wore them out. Now i'm getting the whole lot rewired.

    I took the battery pack apart I saw that water had got into the unit (there was fine silt in there). there is a small led in the nose of the pack - and it's not properly sealed. This didn't actually cause any problems - but it could have done.

    Also, the metallic finish of the light gets eaten by the road salt... but that's just cosmetic.

    I live in Scotland - so some of my experience of this is related to the conditions we experience here.

    If I never had the problem with the connections, then I'd have given this 4/5 chillis. It's a nice wee light.

    Strength:

    4 light modes, blinky, low, med, high.
    rubber coated everything to prevent scratching.
    decent weight for the price.

    Weakness:

    not fantastic for mountain biking, but works wonders on the road and paved trails, great see and be seen light.

    Great price for a road light, needs to be much brighter for trails. Cheap replacement batteries and does do the whole 5 hours on low mode.

    Strength:

    Small, lightweight, four light features, blinky, low, med, high.

    Weakness:

    long coil cable thing that I have to wrap around my top tube.

    great light for the price. I use it for mainly street riding and have seen the nightrider mi.newt usb in use, which is just a strong as my light, but my battery lasts longer and if my battery needs replacement, the knog ones are $40 cheaper than nightrider. as far as mountain use, get more power like the 305 or 605.
