The light is fairly bright, nothing spectacular, but bright enough for Chicago commuting. I read many negative reviews about the bracket, however my main issue lies with the extremely cheap and flimsy plastic casing. I have never dropped the light (though I believe a light costing approximately 100 bucks should hold up against a 3-4 foot fall without any issues), but the the casing cracked in my backpack. I always try to be careful with my backpack for I keep my sunglasses, graphing calculator, cell phone, and mp3 player in the bag, and they have not sustained any damage. The battery takes a long time to recharge, and its an all around bad buy. I would not recommend this light to anyone.

This is a rechargeable headlight. It uses internal batteries of NiMH. They are specific batteries for this headlight. The life of each charge is about 2 hours if we have the light at high power or 6 hours if it is at low power.

This is a headlight of high quality. It has a LED bulb. This kind of light is the more efficient as to the ratio of power to battery consumption.

Their light is very powerfull. If it is well placed, it can light up 15 yards ahead. It is quite a lot for a bike.

Moreover, it is worth emphasizing the high quality of their lighting. It gives a very smooth light.

The only drawback is its price, that is a bit expensive, about $125 . This price includes the batteries and the charger.

But for somebody (like me) who usually go with the bike in the night through roads without any illumination, it is indispensable a high quality headlight like this.

Minutes after taking it out of the box...Initial charge the Red light on charger comes on after just a few minutes and the light does not get a full charge. light only lasted less than 2 minutes on high. Then (for an hour) I kept unplugging and re plugging in the charger and this time the light lasted about an hour. BUT it was only bright for about 5 minutes then it slowly faded. I think I got a bad charging unit that is sensing a full charge very prematurely. Where is the quality control at Cateye. Small, lightweight, sleek design but when on the brightest it's not really bright enough to ride the unlit trails at night unless your going at a crawl.

This little light is small and effective for in-town use. Battery endurance is good and it's easy to plug in the charger while you leave the light on the handlebars. It doesn't weight much, and is much less massive than the Cateye models that use four AA cells. A word of warning - if you use it in the flashing or low-power mode, the modulation can send spurious signals to your wireless computer and you can find yourself indicating 72 mph while sitting still. If you use a wired computer, or if you always use it in high power / bright mode, it's not a problem.
