Strength:

Very bright. Consistent brightness until the battery needs replacement. Adjustable tilt and orientation. Inexpensive. Tightens with a knob that can be checked easily and often.

Weakness:

Little warning that the battery will need to be replaced soon.

This light is inexpensive but very bright. It seems to have a regulator that keeps the brightness consistent until the day the battery needs to be replaced. It dims then dies very quickly. Keep spare batteries in your tool bag. The attachment on the back of one of my lights broke. It was mounted low on a trailer and probably got kicked a few times, so maybe it's not a design issue. I do like the knob that tightens the mount and that the light orientation can be easily changed from vertical to horizontal.

Strength:

Bright and very light weight. Long run time with 2 AAA. Can be mounted about anywhere you could concieve.

Weakness:

Non so far.

I'm very pleased with this light. It is very bright and visible at night, my wife commented that she could see my light flashing from quite a distance behind me when I first purchased it. The four light modes is an absolute plus in my eyes. It's small and light weight and could be clipped just about anywhere. These are in expensive lights that I've thought could be mounted on the sides of the bike for cross traffice visibility also! It's a great product!

Strength:

Bright. Light weight. Easy to replace 2 AAA batteries last a long time. Secure mount. Light will not fall off the bike if you hit a bump.

Weakness:

None.

I use this light on every ride, most of which are in the early morning darkness or just after sunrise. But even when it is light enough for you to see, this light will help you to be seen from behind on dark, tree shaded roads. It's a cheap investment in your safety. Just buy it and use it.

None so far

Seems very bright compared to other units. The side LED's are a real safety plus. Good product, fair price.
