About Planet Bike
In November of 1996, Planet Bike was founded in Madison, Wisconsin. In many ways, Planet Bike began as a social experiment that dedicated itself to doing business in a different way. Instead of being just another company that develops and sells products with profit as its end goal, Planet Bike wanted to help bring about positive change for people, their communities, and the environment.

Despite being a simple machine, the people at Planet Bike have always believed that the bicycle has great potential to help improve the world and the lives of the people in it. From the start, they have embraced an alternative corporate purpose which seeks to help get more people on bicycles by making communities friendlier places for the self-propelled. By donating 25% of company profits to causes that promote and facilitate bicycle usage, Planet Bike hopes to make an impact.

Social experiments aside, Planet Bike was born from the heart of a cyclist with a goal of making innovative, high quality, and practical bicycle accessories. Simply put, they strive to design and develop the best bicycle products in the world. In the company's short ten year history, they have made important product innovations within the bicycle industry. Advancements include the 4-line computer which is now a standard in the industry and the world's first self-contained HID light. Not bad for a company that ten years ago started as a one man operation. Today, while still a small company, Planet Bike continues to evolve and improve their product line with the goal of always striving to build accessories that make it easier for people to ride their bikes. Since 1996, Planet Bike's financial support of the grassroots bicycle movement has totaled $500,000. By 2010, they have made a goal to donate $1 million to organizations that are dedicated to making America a friendlier place for cyclists.

THis light is fantastic - very bright.
dawnja
The light is waterproof, can be mounted and easily removed from your bike and the batteries are easy to replace.
Amazon Customer
As others have said, in flashing mode, the light is considerably bright, and will help you to be seen.

First off, I'd like to say I own both Planet Bike Beamer 3 and 5. I bought them both from Amazon when they were both priced at about 16 bucks. I've taken both lights out to compare how they would perform. Both lights are very bright and will force cars, joggers, and anyone to notice you. I would say they are the perfect light for urban use and a minimum for suburban use. They light up the road relatively well from 10-20 feet away from you. They both have flashing and constant on modes. Flashing in both models seem to be brighter than constant on.

I do prefer the Planet Bike Beamer 3 over the 5 though. When comparing the two, the 5 seems to scatter the light a little bit. Let me try to explain; when using both lights shining against a wall, they both project a circle, same size and brightness. But with the 5, the outer edge looks fuzzy. With the 3, the circumference of the circle is very solid and sharp. Also the light color on the 3 is more white colored light, while the color on the 5 is slightly blue(er). This gives the 3 more usable light on the streets. From my own perspective, the 5 isn't necessarily brighter than the 3 either. Battery life, I have not tested. I do recommend the 3 over the 5, especially for people looking for a bike light under 20 bucks. Thanks for reading, I hope this helps.

I also wanted to note that both of the products were bought at the same time and the batteries were fresh (from factory).

Edit: After a few weeks of swapping between the 5 and 3, I have noticed the 5 to be slightly brighter than the 3. They both use the same type of mounts so you can swap back and forth like I did.

This light takes two 'AA's so i can use rechargebles,not pricey watch batteries.The five LEDs have a good throw.When pointed a bit closer to the ground infront of the handle bars it gives off a star cluster rather than a single wash.This is a light not for seeing well but for being seen by others.The easy to install bracket does not seem to tighten enough.I wish designers would make strong metal(titanium?)brackets for lights for those of us who ride everyday,everywhere.Not the best,but better than most.

I have both the one-watt Blaze and the 5-LED Beamer lights on my bike (note that I am comparing the one-watt Blaze, not the half-watt Blaze). I use the Blaze for constant-on illumination (to see) and the Beamer as a blinker (to be seen).

First of all, there is NOTHING WRONG WITH THE MOUNT (which is the same for both lights). Please ignore other reviews to the contrary, which were posted by people who are apparently unable to read an instruction sheet.

The mounting strap is ADJUSTABLE. It will accommodate very small handlebars, as well as massively oversized handlebars. If you turn the mounting bracket over and examine the underside, you will see that the mounting strap has ratchet-teeth. There is a keep directly beneath the mount which holds the strap to the desired length. If the mount is too loose, push the strap towards the mount to ratchet it to a smaller size. If the mount is too tight, use a small screwdriver to hold the keep up as you let the strap out. The mount may be further adjusted by turning the set-screw (by turning the cam-lever). Don't make it too tight, or it will be hard to adjust vertically.

The mount is very secure, yet the lights are easily removed (and can easily double as a flashlight when needed - and you could easily hold it in your teeth for roadside repairs).

Photos of both the Blaze and the Beamer look rather similar - I wondered if they used the same plastic housing. But the Blaze is substantially larger than the Beamer (in both length and diameter, even thought they both use the same size (AA) batteries). As I said before, the mount is the same.

In blinking mode, the Beamer is actually brighter (overall) than the Blaze.

The instruction recommends rechargables, but I found that it is considerably dimmer than when using regular alkaline batteries, even when the nimh's were freshly charged. The safety margin is not worth the saving, so I use regular alkaline batteries.

The "flashing" mode bright flashes can be seen over a city block away, but the bright flashes are very disturbing when I am riding in dark areas. The continuous "on" mode does not gives sufficient light to ride safely when there is no other light source like street lights.

This light serves me well in getting drivers' attention from on coming traffic, and is worth the price; going to get additional head light for night riding.

It's a great item - and just now, as I was doing the laundry, I found the light had been through the wash in the pocket of my 8-yr-old son's pants. I pushed the On button, and it came on like a champion!

I agree about the lights not being very bright with rechargeable batteries, although I haven't tried alkalines. They are bright enough to be seen, and to ride in the city, but if one wanders away from city lights and there isn't any moonlight to be found, one must be very careful about not running off of a path or running over road debris.

Also, another comment noted that the bracket not being tight enough - I have also found this an issue. When I go over big bumps, the light falls forward.

Other Planet Bike stuff is excellent, but this leaves a bit to be desired.

Edit: Tried new alkalines versus charged ni-mh batteries. The alkalines were substantially brighter. I guess the .3 volts per battery makes a (big)difference.
