However, the LEDs in the light are quite bright and are especially noticeable when riding in the dark. Riding to work in the dark, in the morning, friends have told me they can see me at least a half mile away.
I usually have on on my shirt and one on my saddle bag. It is obvious by the vehicles reactions around me that I am very visible.
The lights seem to run FOREVER on two AAA batteries. Put a thin tie-wrap on the light on the bag if you don't want it coming off. It will require replacing when batteries go bad, but that won't be very often!
I checked the light at every rest stop to make sure it was still attached. When checking it I noticed that it was not very bright and for day time use was really little better than a reflector. I was seriously considering on sending it back and putting the money towards a better light. However, I can not do that as it come off again and is lying in pieces on a street somewhere in South Boston.
Buy a better light. You'll be glad you did.
