Strange that both the reduced lights available from halfords (cat eye one yesterday) have much worse battery life.

Normally would expect many hours of life for an LED light -- maybe thats why they are reduced

THANKS,RESERVED ONE:thumbsup:

I agree, although as this is rechareable i hope it wont prove to be too much of an issue

Thats a nice little package and a very attractive price too. Heat added.

I have one of these. If you work in an office with computers, the nice thing is that its convenient to be able to charge it up without a charger. The light not particularly bright, but it is a lot better than nothing.

personally id rather buy a decent light than something cheap that is better than nothing. its all about safety then bargain hunting shouldnt be the deciding factor

WARNING
I reserved one of these for collection, when I went to collect it they had none. I suggest that you call the branch were you are collecting them from to make sure they are behind the till for you. Luckily it's only a mile away. This is the third time in the last couple of months that "reserve and collect" has let me down! not just Halfords, Tesco Direct had been delivered the wrong thing and Curry's couldn't find what I'd ordered.

He has a point. Buying a good, bright light could save your life. I reserved one but this comment has taken me out of bargain hunting and brought me to my senses. May do as a secondary light, but as someone has said that it is not that bright - not a good combination to have on a bike - sorry to be a pooper.

You'll notice that in the Q&A section someone asked:

What candle power is this light?

They got the unhelpful reply:

It depends on if this is fully charged, which is why we do not quote this info.


As it turns out, other suppliers of rechargeable cycle lights don't have any such qualms and J E James say that a remarkably similar looking light (on sale for £7.82) has 18 candle power:

When you think that many cycle front lights have 1200+ candle power, then that puts the power of this light into context. I have a Cateye light which is rated as 800 candle power and I don't use it by itself on unlit roads.

Strangely, I understand this is a site for bargains, something which apparently is beyond your obvious talents.

You can buy very bright LED bike lights for peanuts nowadays (bought loads from QD?) and use rechargable batteries. They're so cheap you can use one on steady beam and on on flashing and have fresh batteries ready.

None of this will save you from car drivers though, so use the pavement responsibly where you can.

No, you're completely right - I can't even begin to match the levels of stupidity you've shared with us. Okay, I give in. You are the better halfwit.

Ha ha! Don't you mean GVF?

Ridiculous deal, don't even know why this got so hot.

Are these any good - currently work at at under a tenner.

Sorry but you all sound like the kind of idiots who cycle on the pavement in the pitch black with no lights on..... I spent a lot of money on very good lights - not for my benefit (I would much rather have spent it on beer) but for everyone else on the road to see me, a superstar living phenomenon of a cyclist .......:-D

There are so many idiots who don't give a damn and give the rest of us a bad name!

Any lights are better than none but the brighter the better guys! Battery life should not even be considered - you can get 20 batteries from the pound shop that will last a while. Cheap as chips
