This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Great quick release and USB rechargeable light set that I would recommend to commuters, leisure riders and those training in winter alike.

Able to mount horizontally in line with bars or vertically along seat post making them far less bulky than other alternatives and less impactive on the look of your bike as a result.

Good range of still/flash modes with corresponding run times and the higher output settings from such a small unit is genuinely surprising.

IPX4 water rating and excellent build quality.

£47.48 via Amazon but although free delivery, not actually sold/dispatched by Amazon.

Individual units usually around £30 mark so decent offer for the set in my opinion.

Hope of use to someone. With darker nights approaching, or even in the summer, it’s always good to have a reliable rear light that others can see from a long way off.

Just remember to take them with you at the cafe though as being quick release they are convenient but also easy pickings. The units are very compact so easily fit in jersey pockets without issue 🏼

If you can find them try the Aldi ones. They are pretty much the same lights. Had mine about 3 years now and still going strong. £12.99 I think

Me too, these are literally the same lights.

Really really bright, however I don't rate the waterproofing - it's just a little push in rubber flap over the micro usb charging socket and it doesn't push in tightly either. That said, mine has been through a couple of years of winter riding and still works, albeit with some corrosion on the micro usb contacts.

Just bought the rear from Evans, price matching a Cycle Republic price of £20 as despite CR stating it is in stock you can't order?? Great light on first impression though
I get my lights at AliExpress, lots of really good ones at half the price of these but bigger batteries
I have the rear light, excellent brightness and battery. £19.99 here tweekscycles.com/moo…97/

Agreed: the waterproofing is poor on the Aldi one. My rear light broke after riding in the rain, but fair dues the manufacturer replaced it. Interesting to see the Aldi lights have been discontinued so perhaps a fair few lights were dying.
I remember the ALDI equivalents but not sure fair to use as a direct comparison given the waterproofing issue and issues with the switch/button on those units? Not sure still available anyway? Definitely cheaper and AliExpress will have cheaper still I’m sure but they are that cheap for a reason. If they aren’t consistently reliable I’d rather pay a little more to know they will work without issue when needed.

I know everyone wants the best deal, but just because something similar is cheaper it doesn’t necessarily make the branded original a bad purchase.

You misunderstand. The Moon light has exactly the same waterproofing issues as the Aldi light because they are literally the exact same thing.

I don’t misunderstand at all. You have your opinion and I have mine. I’ve never had any such issues with the moon lights I’ve owned for years. They are not the same thing, they are similarly designed units made by totally different companies.

Which totally different companies are they? 'Moon' and 'Aldi'? LOL

Umm Moon and Bikemate.....?
The manufacturers of the two light units?

Seriously Nealio, is this is now the depth of your point? I literally have no interest in your conversation.

I was just wondering if you have any idea how Chinese manufacturing and supply works. You think 'Bikemate' is an actual company that has their own design and manufacturing facility somewhere?

No. It's an aldi brand. Their buyers go off the far east, find products they think they can sell, get the manufacturer to put 'bikemate' on it rather than 'moon' or whatever else it is and off they go. It's. the. same. thing.

Like I said ‘literally no interest’..........and now, no interest.
You can keep replying but I’m going to stop reading 🏼
