I had slaved over what bike light to buy to keep me visible at night, and I finally settled on this guy. This light has a powerful, wide beam, but what really drew me to it was its simple, slick design. It is also remarkably easy to mount; the silicon strap and magnetic clasp are pretty brilliant. The light has four modes, three of which are designated by blue (maximum output), teal (medium), and green (low). The fourth is the "blinker" mode, which lacks an indicator.

I can't comment on the battery life because I've only taken it on short rides so far, but I will note that the USB charging functionality, while convenient, has me a little skeptical. After a full charge, the battery light on the Blinder will turn green, but if you turn on the light and quickly turn it off and then try charging it again, you'll find that the battery light goes red (indicating that it is charging) again. This would be normal if it weren't for the fact that it takes a long time for the charging light to go green again. For now, I'll assume that it's an indicator issue, as the battery couldn't possibly drain so much from turning the light on for a single second.

This light is super super bright, and easy to carry and remove.

Knog customer support is awesome, although I think there might be a lost in translation thing going on. I didn't fully secure the bolt under the strap to the light, needless to say it went flying off of my bike. I lost the bolt. I contacted Knog, a day later they replied and said they would send me a replacement. No questions asked, no receipt needed, they paid for postage. I expected to receive a bolt. a few weeks later, I received a full new mount and some straps, which was great but no little bolt included. I contacted them again, and a few weeks later I finally received the small bolt. Anyway, no fuss, great customer service.

The only complaint I have is the awkward charging of the light. They include a few weird little usb cables, and conversion cables. The cable included is super short and doesn't really work in any of my computer USB situations. I typically charge this with a Jawbone wall charger, but the weight of the light will usually make the light fall out. I need to come up with a better way to keep this constantly charged.

Crap. Little magnet holding the rubber holder falled out and had to be re-glued. Hex screw attaching the rubber holder to the light fell out. Rubber holder is holding poorly, the light (being on the heavier side) is constantly tilting down even on smoother road. All those little but important attachment details are designed astonishingly unreliably. And most importantly, battery lost ability to hold charge very quickly. After one year of not very frequent ride (because of the aforementioned problems) the battery does not hold absolutely anything. I have to admit that my Knog Blinder ARC fell to pavement (because of that lousy hex screw coming out) and I'm not ruling out the possibility that it could be the cause of the battery problem. But still, the bottom line: crap. Knog can produce beautiful design but its products tend to be unreliable (my second experience is Strongman U-lock).

Disappointed in this light. I *really* wanted to like it because Knog absolutely nailed the minimalist look and design of the thing (right down to the packaging in which it ships), but in use I find: the light loosens from its mount VERY easily and is constantly in need of retightening with an Allen key; the slightest bump or imperfection in the road will knock it out of position and cause it to angle upward, resulting in my constantly having to make micro-adjustments; it needs to be recharged daily (I use it ONCE a day on a six-mile commute home in the evening); recharging is an all-day affair (no quick charges here). Beyond that, it gets the job done. BUT, if I could go back and do it all over again, knowing what I know now I probably would have gone with a different light.

Great for the bike. Very bright. A bit heavier than others, but obvious quality. You need to have a horizontal place to mount it on your handlebars. It swivels side to side, but does not articulate in other directions. Fast charge. Lasts a long time. Did I mention... BRIGHT!

The light on its own is great but now it has become the most expensive flash light. The mounting piece broke within a few minutes of leaving the box. All i did was pull it over the handlebar and the rubber mount broke. DO NOT BUY. You have been duly warned.

Cheap. Hex screw stripped. Rubber straps are so soft they are useless. Why can't knog sell a decent product?
