Unless it comes with one half watt led it's not a true clone. I wouldn't buy one unless I just wanted standard 3-led blinkie.Jim311 said:It doesn't really look that bright in the picture, nor does it say half watt on the page anywhere that I saw. Did I miss that part?
Not sure if this means anything but with the SF the 0.5watt led uses a clear optic. This means the led must be red. On the clone you link to the entire lens looks red. not sure if this means anything but I thought it worth noting.maxtheheathen said:J&B's housebrand Sunlite was cloning planet bike lights for half the price.
They've maybe stopped making them though. Still plenty out there.
Pretty sure that's just refracted light. We've sold those at our co-op, and they're a pretty exact clone. The genuine PB Superflash is maybe 5% brighter. Haven't tested them with identical batteries though. So I can't be sure if it's just the cheapo stock batteries.Cat-man-do said:Not sure if this means anything but with the SF the 0.5watt led uses a clear optic. This means the led must be red.

This is my experience with their cheap clone bike lights. They copy the physical design but not the materials.Wobbegong said:I bought one out of curiosity. The plastic tab snapped right off while trying to take it apart to install the batteries. This thing is cheap dollar store quality.
