I bought these the other week and they work brilliantly - they are very bright. The small white and red light things have gone on my kids bike and are surprisingly bright.

I know it is an ebay seller but there are loads on ebay that are as good for less money. But if you want to pay more money from a trusted seller then it is a good price as you will struggle to get these cheaper.

I think you have been misinformed! These are not awareness lights, they are so you can see. £50 is a billy bargain for these.

Check the link for a review. They got positive comments when they were £100.

Review

I have these on my bike and paid £100 6 months ago. They were great through the winter when teamed up with a head torch

got these for £54 last time, very impressed, the actual lights are small pods with a super bright led in each, there is a wire to connect to the battery pack which you velcro to the bike frame.

all comes in a presentation box with mains charger etc.

the spread of light provided by the 2 units is excellent, great for a late night steady cycle home from the pub avoiding all the pot holes , wild animals darting out of the bushes etc

i have done the thing with mounting torches etc on the handlebars but this is way better

£50 is a bit ridiculous for a cycle light in a way but what price safety
packard#6
Great prices, however it's still only 120 lumens output not 240...

Please post a link for equivalent lights that are 'under £10'. I spent hours searching websites worldwide earlier this year for bright lights at a reasonable price and even on Chinese sites could not find anything as powerful as this for anywhere near £10.
Thanks.

Totally meaningless.

Light quantity is actually measured in Lux, not Lumens.
You can get 2400 lumens from a 1 watt LED because lumens measures the brightest spot.
Lumens are a photometry unit. The photometry units are different from most systems of physical units in that they take into account how the human eye responds to light, therefore as a measurement of light they are very relevant. Two sources of light which produce the same intensity (W/m2) of visible light do not necessarily appear equally bright. The photometry units are designed to take this into account, and therefore are a better representation of how "bright" a light appears to be than raw intensity. They relate to raw power by a quantity called luminous efficacy, and are used for purposes like determining how to best achieve sufficient illumination for various tasks in indoor and outdoor settings. The illumination measured by a photocell sensor does not necessarily correspond to what is perceived by the human eye, and without filters which may be costly, photocells and charge-coupled devices (CCD) tend to respond to some infrared, ultraviolet or both.

Thanks, my bro needs something better for nigh trailing and this could be it.

Wrong side of bed for me maybe, great light.

Back to front. Lumens is what you need to see so if 240 lumens then that is like one third of a 60 watt incandescent. (60 watts produce 700 lumens)
About 5 watts in total at a big guess assumed LED efficiency.

Blind the car driver so he drives into you...great idea.

Bought one of these and it 1200 lumens and easyfit and is mega bright, highly recommended and half the price shipping is around 9 days. Also supplied with Head strap, cant ask for a better bike light in my opinon

Cracking deal for a brilliant light set
mjr600#16
Way too expensive, I've been running lights from DX for the last 4yrs, MTB, road bike and helmet mounted, differing outputs and never paid more than £20 for a torch and mounting bracket. If you want cheap, bright, reliable etc get a Flood To Throw X2000 with a choice of battery options and a bar mount for less than £10. Don't spend more than you have to, we're supposed to be saving money here.

Have run with one of these for over a year now, and excellent plus at a rediculously cheap price. The build quality around the battery / charger seems to get low reviews and have experienced that myself whereby need to fiddle around with the charging connector sometimes. But cannot fault the brightness and operation of the light - a good run time on it too, and have never run it flat yet so the claimed 3 hours on full power appears truthful too.

Well, a) You don't point it up, you angle it towards the ground, and b) all cars have headlights.. and cars seem alright driving around in the night without crashing into each other with lights quite a bit more powerful than 240 lumens.

From experience of fitting LED lamps throughout my house, 400-450 lumens is the same output as a 50W halogen GU10 unit, probably the nearest equivalent to the bike light configuration.

I've got those cheaper ones from China and they are blinding close up, completely believable at 900+ lumens too. That said, I'm not sure about the reliability in the wet, nor the very none standard battery pack, but at half the price, even compared to these, you could always get a spare set.
