Blackburn 2'Fer bike light (front or rear) £9.99 at Chain Reaction Cycles

Found 24th Feb
This usually sells for around £15-£20. Found it at Wiggle for this price but they charge postage on top.

This is the ideal spare light; small, light, waterproof, charged via a USB cable (included) it can be used as either a 60 lumen 'be seen' front light or a 20 lumen rear light. Steady or flashing. The battery lasts up to 5 hours (flashing, 1.5 hours steady) - plenty of time to get you home.

I used to have similar lights from Decathlon which cost about the same but died within 6 months because of water getting into them on my rainy commute in Glasgow. Hoping this will last better...

Free delivery?
Any codes?
No code needed, delivery is free on orders over £9 at Chain Reaction Cycles.
They're the same company as Wiggle, but Wiggle charge delivery if you're spending less than £12. Which is why I checked CRC before I ordered from Wiggle. Glad I did.

For occasional or short ride use in towns I prefer the small stretchy rubberised lights you just clip on. I've seen them in Lidl for a couple of quid a pair, or Tesco for about £4. 2 lithium cells in them, plenty bright enough to be seen and easy to remove when parked. I don't see the point in rechargable bike lights, it's not like the low power led ones get through loads of batteries, the battery will likely die in these within a couple of years making them useless, or if you use them very occasionally will more than likely be flat at the precise time you need to use them....
Blackburn lights are excellent quality very impressed with mine. Check out tredz they do a range of blackburns very cheap I got front and rear for around this price last week (battery not USB,but batteries are supplied with lights)

There are a lot of good deals on there. £13.99 for the light in the OP (which I'm sticking with - I like the convenience of a single, spare light that will fit in a pocket and do either front or rear) but lots of other options for the same money or less.
