This is the current and normal price at Halfords. As mentioned, the 1600lumen version is a good light and is occasionally on offer for this price. No deal I’m afraid.
Got the catseye version of this, seem to remember I paid a similar price. It’s an amazing light, so bright I’ve had cars flash me thinking I’ve got full beam on from a distance. As a MTBer it is amazing for the night rides.
Only downside is that it’s rechargeable.

This 1600 lumen one even comes with an out front garmin/ action cam holder which is really useful and worth £10 on its own.

Also 10% off for blue light card and British cycling members

The 10% from bc is extended to online purchases there will be a code on your membership dashboard.

Depends how much you cycle, I wouldn't expect this to last very long

One of millions on ebay, etc with grossly inflated output claims.

15,000 lumens for this one? It only claims to have a single XML T6 led if it does have only of those they are good for about a 1000 lumens in ideal laboratory conditions, I.e. a world away from what you'll get with a poor battery, cabling, cold weather, half discharged cells and so on. It probably also doesn't have decent lenses so it'll spill light everywhere or have a tunnel vision spotty beam.

Yeah, it's probably better than than an 80s/90s eveready but you're better off getting the one in the OP or similar from a reputable supplier.

Keep one in my bag for emergencies but I paid £4 on ebay. Decent wee light. Looks awful on the bars.
Amazing light, very very powerful and feels solid.
good deal in itsself but there are any number of similar lights on amazon for half the price

amazon.co.uk/s?k…s_2


personally i've been using these for about 4 years and never had an issue amazon.co.uk/Hea…8-3 only thing i changed was to add a bolt on mount but that was mainly to make it easier to switch it from bike to bike
Can anyone recommend a decent one at a budget price - like 20quid. Last one I had got lifted off the bike. Don't really want to be out £40 or £50 everytime!

The 1600 lumen light comes with it - well the 2 I purchased did anyway.
I have this light. It's a proper "to see with" light, you can get much cheaper "be seen" lights if you don't want to spend this much. It would be complete overkill for a street lit commute for example.

This one also comes with the out front Garmin / light mount that the more expensive one comes with.

Plenty bright enough for unlit country roads on middle settings and gives great run times if you do (get about 5hours). If you don't need great run times but still need to see with, then buy the £25 500 lumen version and run it at full pelt (no Garmin mount for that one).

I have gone through many eBay specials, Amazon cheapos, AliExpress etc. as I commute year round by bike on unlit roads. Reliability is the main issue with those. Had too many fail on me to go there again. Think this is outstanding value as it has great performance and reliability without going up to Exposure prices (or even Lezyne / Cateye to be honest!). Powerbank function is a useful little bonus most don't have too.

The bad:
It's a chunky one, both in size and weight
Garmin mount wobbles due to the weight
Takes forever to charge

I would definitely recommend but it is always this price...

£25.88 with 400 lumens or Lezyne 200 lumens for £18.99.
You can get 10% off with bluelightcard ( I think )
Thanks OP, I have purchased (having just returned previous cheap lights from Amazon which failed after 2 outings). As others have said, this 1000 lumen light comes in the box with the "out front" combo mount which can hold this light and a Garmin GPS.
