I agree that its a good light but mine broke :(, the mounting snapped when I fitted it and the light broke off. I am always unlucky with these things though so still hot from me!

how big is this, need something to go inside pumpkins would it be any good?

Bought one from 365digital on eBay for £1.21 delivered as i couldn't find any in Poundland a few weeks back, great light for the money though as others have mentioned, the mount's a bit fragile (thought mine was going to snap as I stretched it to clamp round the handlebars but didn't). Poundland also sell 5-led rear lamps which are good (and have several different flash sequences).

so its not a good then!!

used to have similar bike lights from dealextreme and they were ok, cheap but soon broke - bought some of these lights for my bike and the kids for £13.49 each....superb lights and well worth it, worth paying extra

it looks like a similar model i bought from tesco ( direct.tesco.com/q/R…spx ),
which are really bright for being seen,if a car hits me now i know it was aiming at me!lol, they're a bit useless for lighting the road ahead up tho,but if you're not off road that won't be a problem,heat added.

Great for 5 minutes then the connector breaks irrepairably so be warned.

I feckin' hate these light's. They are so distracting to drivers.

I have been using these for several years. The mount will break if you do not take care when taking the light on and off. I have two fitted to my bars and I expect to break the mount for one each winter. But at this price I treat them as disposable.

Cheap crap. Poundland quality is often atrocious. Anyone who regularly cycles should get proper lights.

For those people who want to see rather than be seen I recommend this deal. I also have one of these on my bar for when cycling through the unlit park.

i bought 2 one broke and the other slides off the mount....... if only it had a bit more of a quality build on the mount...... the light its self works great...... now held on with gaffer tape!! worth £1 though

they are crap had 1 hit a pot hole it flew off + on off switch took a wobbler (_;)

I have a number of these, bought them whilst they were in stock last time. Has 3 modes, solid, flashing, and an inbetween that goes on off on off at a slower rate. Well worth a quid each. I fit two onto my handle bars. One to point on the floor infront of me and one pointing further ahead. Works just aswell as my friends battery pack £100 set.

They dont do rear ones no, but get some red plastic and stick it over the end? Should work.

Maybe just you been clutzy.

I have never had any "luck" with cheap lights, the brackets always break. Hot deal as a torch, but as a bike light I'll stick with my trusty Cateye's.

Stone cold. Mount snapped whilst trying to fit, and when I finally had it all secured by an abundance of tie wraps, a week later the light could no longer be slide on. It's not worth 1p, let alone £1

Previous poundland light brackets broke, these sound the same but light is actually better.

How do you think cyclists feel having to face twin 55Watt blue halogen headlights on a car especially motorists who don't dip for cyclists!

Usually branded Power Beam...very good if you use cable ties...I got one for just short of £4 this week... wish I'd looked here first......
