I just took delivery of one of these. Really good as a "be seen" front light. Not much cop for lighting up the road though.

Free postage too!

so its a front light that does not light up the road in front, sound …so its a front light that does not light up the road in front, sound dangerous and not fit for purposelook on ebay or amazon for cree bike lightssomething like this one from China, i dont have this exact model and am not recommending it, just giving a link, note: some china bike lights have dodgy rechargable batteries which can catch fire under charginghttps://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/CREE-XM-L-T6-LED-Front-Bicycle-Bike-Rechargeable-Head-Light-Torch-Headlight-Lamp/251437897077?epid=1937292435&hash=item3a8addd575:g:W2QAAOSwRrlZ~J3k



There are 2 types of front lights; those intended to light up the road (for cycling on unlit roads, paths and offroad) and those intended to make you visible to other road users.
This light is the latter type and therefore fit for the purpose for which it is intended.

Using an unnecessarily bright light when cycling in traffic isn't safer - it just dazzles other road users.

I always have 2 lights on the front of my bike - a simple, cheap, 'be seen' light similar to this and a second, more powerful light for lighting the way on unlit paths, etc. (it can be turned down or off when cycling on lit roads).
I also have 2 on the back - just in case the battery dies in one and I don't notice.

Good performance as far as USB lights go. I’ve got the pair of these. The mounting mechanism for the front light is appalling, try mounting it as shown on the handlebars and every bump shakes it loose so it just ends up flapping about. It drives me nuts. Good ‘be seen’ light if you can get it to stay in place.

I've had this light for over three years and used it on four or five different bikes. It is the best "to be seen" light I've owned for the money. I used to leave the rubber mount on the handlebars and use the metal clip on the back to quickly attach and release it. It takes a few tries to get used to this method but once you are it is extremely quick. The light feels very well made - solid construction - and the battery lasts a decent amount of time for a compact light. In the years I've had it I've dropped it onto concrete/tarmac a few times and it emerged unscathed. The clip attachment can be used on your clothing/bag/etc so it can be used without the rubber mount. It's easy to operate even while wearing gloves. An excellent light at the full price but this deal, plus the code above, makes it extremely good value for money.
