this great bike light is my first foray into usb rechargeable lights. Its really amazing. I purchased a planet bike 1 watt headlight about 2 years back and thought that it was enough but found myself wanting more light especially on nights when there wasn't any moon light. This light pours plenty of light onto the pavement and lasts about 1.5 hours on full power. its easy to recharge just about anywhere and I'm thinking of getting a second battery for touring. Oh, and for only $15 more than the planet bike light its about 2X more powerful. Its a great light~ no complaints whatsoever.

Update* The light no longer charges, holds a charge or lights. I am currently exploring warranty options for getting it repaired or replaced. I purchased the light the end of June and by the middle of September of the same year it stopped working. Never crashed with it or exposed it to rain or heat. Wished It would have lasted longer at least 2 years or more.

I got this light because I do 20 mile rides at 5:00 AM, and it is pretty dark. I try to push it pretty hard, and want a headlight I will not "outrun". I was concerned that at 300 lumen this would not be enough, but it is plenty. I actually keep it on the 200 lumen setting to get 2 rides out of it before recharging. Don't notice a huge difference between the 200 and 300 settings, so the extra time is worth it. Charging takes a while, but it has god a decent battery to keep going as long as it can considering the light it puts out.

I have this one angled pretty far forward, but it lights up the road well. I have no problem picking out pot holes and seeing intersections and such well ahead. I have a Knog Boomer USB that I point down more to light up the road right in front of me a little. The beam on this CygoLite is fairly focused, so you won't get a lot of periphial light or the road right in front of your bike if you point it out ahead. The good thing is you don't get any glare back in your eyes because of the focused beam (I had other lights that put a bad glare onto my clear glasses). The light is heavy, so if you are a weight weenie you probably won't like it. But it is self contained which is nice. I am sure there are better lights out there that cost a lot more, and if you are on dark trails you probably want something with more power. But for road riding in mostly smooth roads this light is a great value.

Included in the box :

Light, Wall Charger, Mini USB Plug, Handel Bar Mount

Pros : The light does provide very bright light. Has a decent amount of flooding to light a sidewalk without an issue. Handel bar mounts are fairly easy to install, and works with larger over sized bars.

Cons : The USB port for charging is terrible. Unlike the other reviewer my light does charge, but its very very loose. If you tap it ever so slightly it will fail to charge the light(not an over exaggeration).
The picture above is a bit misleading also. When charging the light is not red. The light blinks a very faint green. Under an average lit room you cannot see the green light blink, so it renders the charging status pretty useless.

I tried many different light from Cateye, Planet bike etc... I wanted something bright and small at the same time. The other lights I have purchased either did not have enough flooding, or the light emitted purple halo of light. After searching I finally came across Cygolite. Reviews on there other lights were great and one of the few lights using lithium-ion battery pack. Unfortunately its been a big disappointment with their quality control and customer service. First off there were grease on the battery and on the light itself. That might have been done to make the battery pack fit in easier, but finger prints and poor printed box made the unit look used.
The loose connector is very annoying. Its a brand new light, there is no reason why the USB port is that loose. I tried different USB cables laying around and with the same results. I can understand over time the port can get loose, but loose connection from day one is not promising.

I ordered CygoLite's ExpiliOn 300 to augment my ever-growing collection of bike lights -- and, more specifically, I ordered it with brevets and touring in mind. With extra batteries available from the manufacturer at a very good price, it was a no-brainer.

I knew I would love the light itself, since a friend of mine has one and rides with it frequently, and I do. Even on low power, it's bright enough that one of my riding buddies recently shouted "Car back!" as I rolled up the paceline because he mistook its reflection on a speed-limit sign for that of a car's headlight!

I have only two minor quibbles: first, its default mode is one of the higher-power settings, while I almost always use the low-power setting -- but, honestly, that's a question of personal preference. Second, the little silicone USB receptor plug is actually quite a pain in the neck to seat properly (in fact, it's nearly impossible to seat with winter gloves on). This isn't a huge problem, though, especially not if the USB port itself is waterproofed.

The mount, on the other hand, leaves a bit to be desired. I've become highly enamored of built-in silicone mounts that can be easily transferred from bike to bike; this light comes with a more old-fashioned clamp mount which (though it does have a sort of quick-release feature) is significantly less portable. The upside of this arrangement is that if your clamp breaks, you don't have to replace the whole light or jerry-rig it: you can simply order a replacement clamp.

Moreover, the mount does shine in one area: you can adjust the orientation of the light both up and down and side to side easily while riding.
