Cateye Volt 1200 bicycle light £77.99 - Amazon

Found 22nd Jan
This is a Cateye Volt 1200 bike light.

Very good bright light suitable for offroad use and pitchblack country roads. Reviews: cyclingweekly.com/rev…ghtroad.cc/con…ght

RRP is £150.

Charges via standard micro-usb socket.

This light is good value, as the cheaper model Volt 800 has only half the battery life, and 2/3 of the brightness, but costs £60.

Although you can find cheaper Chinese lights on dx, etc., I would prefer to rely on Cateye as the connections are reliable, it's well-waterproofed, durable, etc. It also has good, strong, mount, which doesn't move around like the silly rubber band mounts used on many lights. Other branded lights at this price will tend to have lower battery life, less brightness, and/or less durability.

Yes it's cheap in other places, too. It doesn't need to be £77 in one place, £177 in another for it to be a deal, does it?
Had a forward facing dynamo on front wheel of tourer with halogen bulb in a wide (almost car headlight width but not as deep) lamp very usable in the Trossachs or was it Queen Elisabeth Forest Park. Lumberjack I met while lost, who drew hand drawn map helped me get out. Lights were excellent.
Good deal that. Not sure why others don’t think the same

Because they don't know what they are talking about. Probably think that you can get 5000lm from China for a tenner so this is a bad deal

Well if those Chinese lights don't burn your house down, you'll live to find out that they aren't 5000lm, the beam is terrible and the build quality is shoddy

This is a good deal. Heat added

For a 1200lm light, that's cheap. And the Chinese lights don't count, because they are all about 10% of their claimed output
99.9% sure these will be made in China, regardless of where the head office is, so the whole 'chinese ones dont count' is BS imo.

1200 lumens isn't necessary for road cycling. off road, perhaps, but 1200 lumens will dazzle car drivers.
It's not a shaped beam for on-road use, so you will dazzle other traffic.

I think the Fenix BC21R is a better deal, for about £60.
I have this light and use it on a road bike. It is brilliant, I can’t fault it. This will dazzle drivers if you point it up, but it you angle it down towards the road it is fine, and you can see pot holes etc anyway. I spent about £100 on this around a year ago, so it is a decent price.

Thanks for the mini review.
I have the 1100 Lezeyne light, really good. Had a 1500 Amazon cheap light. Failed after 3rd recharge. False economy. Dont be tight when it comes to helmets, hi viz jacket or lights
