Unfortunately, because I modified this one I can't send it back.

I then adjusted the lamp angle using the set screws on the swivel plate.

3 lbs is too much, especially when your bike is less than 18 lbs.

This just arrived this evening and I am experiencing some reservations bordering on buyers remorse. It gets good marks for sturdy appearance and clear installation instructions, but there are several features to be aware of. The crank takes a fair amount of effort to turn and while the front light is bright and two red LEDs lights face backwards on the unit, they are not as intense as much less expensive battery operated lights or other dynamo driven lights like the high end E3 series. I do not favor the appearance of the large bracket but I will report more once I mount to the bike and perform rotational test. 3-stars thus far due to the strength required to turn the crank and the intensity of the lighting.

Update: I have returned this item for refund. The increase in rolling resistance was unacceptable for my use, so I did not evaluate the charging aspect.

It is way too heavy. This is a great idea, just wait until they make it a little lighter. 3 lbs is too much, especially when your bike is less than 18 lbs.
I was not impressed by customer service at Gizmos for life, and i did not think that Amazon followed up expectantly when i told them i was returning the item.

I got this as a present for Xmas, and haven't tried it out until now (mid-April).

Mounting was a bit of a pain- the promised washer was not included with the kit. Hmmm. Then I noticed one of the 3 screws for the mounting bracket was missing. Hmmm.....

I got it mounted finally (after a trip to the hardware store to buy the missing washer). Noted that it took a good deal of energy to turn the crank. I then adjusted the lamp angle using the set screws on the swivel plate.

As I started riding this AM, it was evident that the generator was charging (light worked and it could charge my smart phone), but them the light/generator unit started to gradually tilt forward, and as it did, it separated itself from the power plug/cables. Bad news...cable hitting spokes = danger of unintended front wheel lock-up.

I re-aligned and re-tightened the light, but it angled forward a second time once I started riding again. Finally I let it be, and disconnected and taped away the cables. 3 miles later on, I hit 3 typical road bumps, and the whole light/generator unit snapped off the swivel plate (broken set screws) and hit the road.

This unit was a good idea, but poorly implemented. Machining of the mounting bracket was incompetent, and the set screws they used were not up to real world stress.

cons:
1. the unit is heavy
2. it takes a good bit of torque to turn the generator
3. quality control of manufacture and packaging is bad (missing washer and screw)
4. machining and set screw design (or implementation) was faulty for the unit's mount to the swivel plate, and it failed.
5. Such failure is potentially catastrophic, as loose cables near front wheel spokes represents a real risk of accident

pros: none
