Minor annoyance at incorrectly fitted lights Vs u coming round one of these dark small back roads and wiping out the cyclist who isn't sufficiently visible. Riding carefully under those conditions isn't necessarily dithering, driving slowly is something everyone should be doing. If someone has their lights set high u can politely let then know, it doesn't have to be an us and them mentality, we r all just road users trying to get from point a to point b safely with minimal inconvenience to each other
For this money I would look at the Cree Solarstorm, same price but more powerful. I use mine for trail riding and its plenty bright enough
Great for blinding drivers whilst dithering on small dark backroads too!
Looks like you've run over WALL E.

Poorly aligned lights exist on both cars and bikes - some are considerate and I even shield mine wtih my hand from incoming people/vehicles even though they are facing the ground.

I have a similar one with three bulbs. Just make sure you point it downwards when on the road so as not to dazzle drivers!

Never been dazzled by a bike. Dazzled by BMW, Audi and SUVs more or less on a daily basis. The brightness of car bulbs is really out of control.

They are nearly always aligned correctly...unlike a lot of flagged out wavering bike riders.

That's fair enough. Sorry you've experienced it, cyclists still need lights and like many I use mine offroad on trails in the dark but when I am on the road it's facing down and I'm considerate but also have to be seen and see. Car alignments are checked for MOT time but the rest of the year people fit HID kits and LED bulbs, plus there's MOT testers that turn a blind eye. That's the point I'm making, no-ones lights are always within spec - Not just 'us' cyclists.

Anyone?
Looks very similar to the Evolva X5 I had, although that was supposedly 1500L output.
OK around town and dimly lit roads but not enough for unlit roads or offroading.
FWIW I changed to a halfords 1600L and difference was like night and day.

It looks similar to a Chinese light I have. It will be very bright and likely reliable enough. I'd strongly suggest carrying spare mini lights if you use any of these lower-end lights though (front or rear). There isn't a picture of the battery pack, but the one I have is shrink-wrapped cells in a nylon pouch - possibly not very weather-resistant.
For this money I would look at the Cree Solarstorm, same price but more powerful. I use mine for trail riding and its plenty bright enough

No experience of these specifically but the cheap ridiculous bright lights typically don't measure up to the description but are still great value. The two or three I've had were still more than bright enough for proper night rides and lasted a season or 2 with the exception of one that died in a weekend if torrential rain.

Buy cheap, buy twice, thrice.... Bit frankly at this price that's not a huge problem

Seth's bike hacks on utube did a decent comparison of the merits of expensive Vs cheap bike lights
Is the battery included?
These Cree bulbs are brilliant. Watch out for dodgy fake batteries in these though - they were on watchdog last year because they were exploding.
Minstadave11/09/2019 17:21

Is the battery included?


Yes - From the blurb... A powerful 4800mAh battery pack running at 8.4v guarantees long run times and of course everything is weather sealed to keep the weather on the outside where it belongs.

I've had experience with similar lights, that look exactly the same. Not this model.
They're more for being seen and not much use for illuminating your way on a dark road.
The light beam is wide and fades out after a few metres. Probably due to "Chinese Lumens" being used.

I use the 1600 lumen version of this one:
amazon.co.uk/Gac…554

This one:
gearbest.com/sma…tml
The actual issue around bike lights that causes conflict between riders and drivers isn't brightness - it's that this and others like it is an offroad light - it has no beam pattern as such but just throws light everywhere. So when a roadie or more usually commuter sticks one of these on his/her bike and pedals off along the road, of course they're going to dazzle anyone coming the other way with it.

If you want a light for riding on the road, buy a road specific light with a proper beam pattern.

Of course it doesn;t help when retailers sell them as "ideal as a commuter light"
Edited by: "Nealio" 11th Sep 2019
As above, for road use you want a light that meets the German StVZO standard - one of the requirements is a focused beam so you aren't blinding oncoming traffic or pedestrians.
It's a shame such standards aren't part of the law in all countries tbh.

Sad but true. These cheap cree lights have powerful bulbs but basic reflectors dispersing the light in all directions.
A well designed reflector will be more effective at a much lower power output.
Halfords 1600 lumen light is a great budget option in my opinion.
I've got similar, & the you want it pointing pretty much downward in order to avoid the pot hopes & sunken aspects of road, never been flashed. (Fnar)
