Found a 5 LED flashing bike light in my local poundland (Southampton), and thought it was a pretty good deal so I picked one up.

It runs on 4xAAA batteries and has a constant light and 2 flashing modes.

They also had rear lights, which run on 2xAAA batteries and have 5 flashing modes.

Hope this helps someone else out!

seen this posted a couple of days ago, but cant find it now.

its always this price in poundland btw

I'll stick with my £160 light thanks. 8D
It's beast.

Remember that flashing lights aren't really a good thing, and that restrictions are pretty tight around them. Still a good deal though

ive a couple of these

3 x aaa batteries

very bright, well worth the quid

Lasted a month then the mount snapped..

Depends if you are happy with that sort of durability.. I wasn't

I've never quite got my head around restrictions on flashing bike lights. I just wonder how many cyclists were arrested for having high vis flashing lights (as opposed to black jackets and trousers and NO lights). Strikes me as a very strange ruling. For me as a motorist anything that gets cyclists seen is a really good thing.

Nice light BUT connecting clip broke within first 5 mins.

My clip broke before I got it tightened up, however, I bought a double velcro fitting (searched under airsoft torch fittings) to attach it to my bars for about £4... so all in £5 for a back up light is great value. Main light is a cateye re charger...

like many other it seems its pretty difficult to get the clip on your bike without breaking it - a shame as these are really bright lights. I have 2 on my bike its just a shame I have to buy 6 of them due to broken clips!

great as a light/torch but the mounts do snap very easily.

What restrictions are these?

I just got one. Build quality not great as you might expect (one of the battery contacts already came out but I manged to push it back in. Decent brightness. Haven't tried to fit it to bike yet.
Might be better as said as a torch

Not anymore. Thanks to the 2005 RVLR amendment on 23rd October of that year it finally became legal to have a flashing light on a pedal cycle, provided it flashes between 60 and 240 times per minute (1 – 4Hz).

False economy. They're very poorly made. I've bought about 5 over the last year and each one has broken within a week of use. The real weakpoint is the mount but the button falls off easily too. Quite bright though for such a cheap light.

Yeah, Mine kept falling off my bike on first ride out with it in day light and now it doesn't work at all.

Should have kept it as a torch only.
