Strength:

Price, Brightness with 6W bulb upgrade, Battery life using one beam.

Weakness:

Can't charge the battery on the bike.

For the money these lights are really the only option on the market at present. I ride my bike to work and back everyday, my route comprises of road and canal toepath. I find the wide beam more than acceptable for road use and when I need to see where I am going I just flick the spot beam on. Spares are readily available and inexpensive a spare battery costing £18.00. I bought a spare and just charge one whilst using the other. I have messed around with other products but have found that you would have to spend at least double if you wwanted to improve on this unit.

SuperDooper! Really good. I ahve two batteries, because a spare only cost me $18. I ahve spare bulbs, 2.4W, 6W and 10W. I put the 10W in with the other 10W and it still shined birghtly. It was amazingly bright. If I was a oncoming vehicle/biker I'd be blinded. The speard of light is pretty cool. I use these lights for everything nowadays. Excelltn Lights!

Weakness:

......ahumm.......Could Be cheaper I suppose. Couldn't everything!

Excellent Lights. I hear that there are replacemnts at an extra cost. If these are this bright, how bright are the new guys. WOW!

Strength:

Very powerful lighting system. Battery last about 4 hours with the use of the one light, and about 1.5 hours with both lights runing constantly.

Weakness:

They are to big. They mount to far in front of the bars. I had a crash and one of the lights is now very loose easyly fixable I hope.

These lights will surly light up any trail that you can find. Very bright. I would defently recommend them.
I love my Cateye Daylights.

Strength:

Reasonably lightweight
Very powerful
Came with a 6w upgrade buld for the flood light

Weakness:

May be prone to beakage if you did happen to crash.

I was a bit sketchy on wether or not I was going to buy the lights. For 1 the guy in the shop wouldn't let me trail them and it was day time when I bought them so I didn't really have an idea on how bright they were, and 2 they looked rather flimsy. The guy assured me they were bright and if I broke them I could bring them back for a free fix. I thought what the hell and bought them. Good decision. They are very bright and I don't have any problems rushing down single trails in the dark. Buy these lights if you want power with out spending too much eg. $500 on digital vista's
