These are LED torches with a bike bracket to be used as a front light.
You can get a cheap 18650 rechargeable battery and charger on ebay as this comes with the extension to fit those batteries

2 x CREE Flashlight Torch
2 x Flashlight Bicycle Holder
2 x Flashlight Cover
1 x 5LED REAR LIGHT

Individually thes cost about £9, so with the rear light thrown in this is a bargain if you need 2 lights

I have these - good for the money - can illuminate a fair range of the road with 2 used together.

don't know how i missed that one! that gives you 8 aaa batteries for free which is pretty handy, i ordered this one for the little extension so i can use some rechargeable instead of AAAs

Brilliant price. Just got some for my bike. HEAT!

Excellent light, have just purchased one and to be honest this is more than enough for me to light the way.
3 modes.

All the Crees come with the extension for the 18650's. Anyway, you won't be disappointed in the Cree.

Received mine today after i ordered yesterday, have to say they look very good for the price.

Ordered 2 sets recently from eBay. 1 failed. Not any good for seeing where you go? Cracking for being seen.

looks great , will have to find a 18560 battery somewhere tho

One of my current 2 is dodgy at the moment. They didn't match anyway, so these should be better. Thanks. heat added.

I got my bike lights from Poundland.

thanks ordered from the cheaper link and saved 95p....waterproof, nice, this set will be very handy in the winter months that'll be upon us soon, once again thanks.....

nice set for the money, i get mine from dealextreme usually but ordered a cree xml t6 "1000l" off ebay the other day for around £10 with two 18650 batteries and a charger which is a decent price

got two.waiting for its arrival

Ordered. These should hopefully make the ride home from work a bit safer.

Great price for these lights, especially as you get a rear included. I also have this flashlight:

dx.com/p/n…=16

from DX, which instead of using Q5 LEDs, use xm-l t6 ones, each capable of around 600-650 lumens. It would be interesting to see if these fit into the mounts on these lights. It may even be possible to mod these lights with the t6 ones.

got these a while ago - easily good enough for cycle lights. I use one on the front, which is perfectly good on its own, and another on the back with red glass over the white. perfect set

How long does each light last for when running on 3xAAA batteries? Thanks.

These two are not the same ?

cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/…988
cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/…150

One says 480 lumen and other advertises 400 lumen, what's the correct output, does anyone have a datasheet from manufacturer ?

Thanks for posting. Now looking for a deal on rechargeable AAA batteries so I can have a spare set at work.

No where near 480LUMEN!! Even without a spec sheet for them - I'd guess they'll will be below 200

Still plenty bright for a bike light though!

Some of the Poundland stores have twin packs of low self discharge NIMH, 800mha batteries. I use these in a dealextreme P4 bike light and get almost an hour and a half of usable light.

Is this the same? Looks the same?

It's only £13.99 delivered!

I think its possible that slightly different leds could be used, Q5 is indicated for both, yet it doesn't say if its XP-E or XP-E2 etc

taken from flashlightwiki.com/Cree :
XP-E
350mA 700mA 1000mA
Q5 107-114 182-194 233-251

XP-E2
Q5 124-132 212-226 270-289

Either way i would expect either would be fine for bike use as the lowest would still be bright enough.

As for aaa battery life if the maximum draw is 1000mA and a single cell provides 1000mAh then 3 hours solid worse case scenario?
I would expect you can get more than 3 hours use though, hopefully someone who owns these for longer can comment

What did your extensive tests of Poundland bike lighting conclude? I like pie charts.

Each light gives you 200 or 240 lumens and even that's doubtful. It's a bit of a cheek to advertise 480 lumens as combined output, I don't think lumens work that way.

These lights are good, but did get a duff light that appeared to have a seal missing on the adjustable beam but seller sent replacement no quibble and go to keep duff one (which is fine for home use)

This is who i bought from and cant fault ebay.co.uk/itm…649

A Lumen is a measure of total output, so you can just add them, but i agree it is cheeky to write 480 as the combined total.
It's similar to when a CPU is advertised as 8Ghz because its a 2Ghz quadcore

That you need a new one after riding over a bump or in light drizzle, I expect.

Unfortunately you waste considerable power putting a red filter over white light. It may not matter to you, but having rear lights which last for weeks between charges is more convenient for me.

The trouble with all these lights is that they are very antisocial to people coming the other way. There just don't seem to be many which have a flat beam like a car headlight. Blinding drivers might give you a sense of satisfaction but, like jumping red lights, it doesn't endear you to them.

I like pie. Both literal and metaphorical

Lights will be great and you can use them as a nice torch long after the clip holding it to your bike has broken. My experience with these is that they are hard and brittle and similar one I have bought in the recent past have had clips that struggle to fit 36mm handlebars.

i use these

made of rubber so wont break and they stretch around bigger torches, the plastic one i have does not fit any of my crees

I agree - I've used the equivalent from DealExtreme for several years and it's very good.

Surely you can't add them together anyway?

If you've got 10 horse that each run at 10 miles an hour - they don't combine to run at 100 mph

so

If you've got 10 lights outputting 200 lumens - it's still the same brightness - you can't add light together?

I am no expert - any clever people out there have a definitive answer?

Not the only one struggling with this concpet oO
