200 hours then?

Might be visible from that distance, but don't expect to be able to see by it. For example on an unlit towpath.

You're going to have to spend alot more than £2.49 on a bicycle light to see anything on an unlit towpath.

This light should only be used alongside something brighter. Don't risk your safety for a couple of £.

Buy this and join the throng of cheapskates putting themselves at greater risk on the roads because they are barely visible on the city centre roads. This'll not show up very well in a sea of shop signs and queues of modern car headlights. I cycle to work every day and see so many cyclists that are barely visible because they won't spend 30 quid on a decent light.

Just custom built 2 wheels to have one with a dynamo hub to power one of these http://www.rosebikes.co.uk/article/b--m-lumotec-iq-cyo-premium-t--senso-plus-front-headlamp/aid:709237 and a rear light. Decided I needed to escape battery powered lights.

This is just a reflector with a couple of fairy lights behind it. Guess it's ok for what it is and the price, and better than nothing for well lit areas only.

Can't you get the same thing for £1 on eBay/Amazon, just not branded?

I bought a blindingly bright torch looking light from amazon for just over a tenner. I would only use this light as a clip on for a rucksack.

better than nothing or as a back up/second light,

Can you recommend a good light please?

Generic light - available from lots of places, often cheaper than this. Poor light too.

I would recommend a mini torch with a cree q5, you can pick these up for around a fiver on eBay and a little more if you want a bracket as well. They run off three aaa batteries and provide a decent bright light, easy to be seen and will light up an unlit path although not quite bright enough for off road mountain biking at speed.

I don't see the point in the light in this deal as they're so weak they're difficult to see and I've usually seen the bike before seeing the light. I had to laugh at their 1km visibility - I wonder how they measured that?!

Poundland has an LED bike light that puts out a reasonable beam. I've got one on my mountain bike. it's pretty cheap and cheerful but does the job. Bracket is a bit cheap and the build quality isn't wonderful but for a quid I'm not complaint. They sell front and rear lights if there is any interest.

I even use the Poundland rechargeable batteries in them ;-)

This is the sort of cheap light I was meaning, this one is £9 for a pair with holder:

I'm not recommending this specific seller but used this exact light and couldn't believe how good it was for so little. I can't find the bracket I use, it looks like it's been replaced by one of this design:

I bought this Lezyne Mega Drive when it was on clearance from Halfords at £50 ..... Blinding light, in every way imaginable, but I appreciate it might be more than some people want to pay.
