The blinking mode is ridiculously bright and WILL get the attention of oncoming cars and pedestrians, it's like a police light.
M. Cat
It is an excellent light, and so good that I use it when riding on a dark trail at night time where there is no other source of light.
Jofi Joseph
Very Bright. took me a while to find a way to compare it with other lights since it does not list its candlepower or lumen output.

When I first heard various rumors about this light's pending appearance on the market, I was *really* worried someone was pulling my leg, because the specs read like a dream come true: a compact, self-contained, quick-release headlight that could throw a beam bright enough to truly see *by*, rivaling some batteries-go-somewhere-else units, using merely a pair of garden-variety AA alkalines (I have a *much* better alternative to those, which I'll get to shortly), and coming in at well under a hundred bucks. My local dealer not only confirmed the 2-watt light's existence, but said he could order one for me if I'd like. (*Would* I!)

I've been using the light a good deal for the better part of two weeks, and it does the business. It's the same size as the 1-watt version, save for its jet-black finish. Like all the Planet Bike lights I've bought, build quality is great, the now-renowned quick-release mounting system remains unchanged, which is a good thing, because (1) it's fantastic as it is, IMO, and (2) it allows quick interchange between two of my bikes, one using Planet Bike's Beamer 5 (itself an excellent urban light). You can purchase the quick-release mounts separately, allowing the moving of one light between several bikes quickly and easily.

Short of extreme, high-speed, off-road night-patrol rides, you're not likely to "over-drive" this headlight, allowing for safer road cycling on streets and roads. I don't have to try and remember the surface irregularities when rolling fairly quickly down a particular side street or path I don't often travel; the light offers a reliable heads-up, reducing the need for sudden evasive maneuvers (and pretty much eliminated the possibility of a snakebite flat, dented rim, or worse).

Remarkable little thing. I've been using those toy 2 C battery lights for years and this 2W LED light is wonderful. For those older riders who just want to cruise around and get some exercise in the cooler summer evenings this is the perfect light. Reaction time is adequate at 15mph and under. If you are a serious cyclist and putting down 18 to 22mph in the dark you will need the brighter heavier lights.

This is my first foray into lighting for my bike.

I got this light specifically to be able to ride a rails to trails trail near my house in the early mornings. Had it mounted and on the bike within a minute of opening the box. The first ride was at 4:15 a.m. under a mostly moonless sky through my neighborhood and then onto the trail.

This light is more than adequate for cruising around and/or commuter biking. On the trail I found the beam to be narrow, but with enough spill to illuminate the wide trail sufficiently. The trail is all dirt with some minor bumps and ruts - mount and light didn't slip or move around at all. There is an appreciable difference between the brightness on high and low settings. I kept mine on low because I felt I had a little better vision to the sides without the real bright spot. I don't really have a need for the strobe, but it will definitely get you noticed.

I could see a racer overdriving this light, but it worked well for me at approx 10-15 mph on a familiar, wide trail. This works perfectly for what I wanted it for. I would look at other lights for night riding on tight singletrack or fast downhill descents, although this might be a nice helmet mounted light (perhaps a little bulky)to complement a bar mounted system. Planet Bike does sell a helmet mount accessory.

I do like that it runs on 2 AA batteries. I can always have backup power supply in my pack or pocket.

This is a good light at a great price. I'm glad I found it.

UPDATE 11/25/11: Have had and used this light over a year now. Still working fine, but I've gotten much faster and found I needed a brighter light. This is particularly true for riding "real" mountain bike trails, not just forest roads and wide bike paths. Am now using the light for a commuter light and a backup light only. Initial review stands - good light at great price. Excellent value for casual riders and commuters.

I've owned this light for over a year. After a year of near-crashes (many due to not seeing objects like foxes and down tree branches outside of the narrow lighting window) and slowing down to 5mph every time I make a slight turn, I finally mustered up the common sense to toss this in the trash and replace it with a real light.

All three lights in the video had fresh batteries.

*** EDIT a year later ****
Several commentators have insulted me for posting this video and having the nerve to donate my time to provide a helpful review to some. I appreciate the maturity of such individuals.

I realize that these bike are not comparable in price, but if I'm not mistaken, they are supposed to do similar jobs: to provide lighting to bicyclists. The point of the video is that the Planet Bike light is not a functional light. Period. At any price. It's no more functional of a bike light than is a pad of sticky notes. I wish other reviewers had been as frank as I am being about the limitations of this light, which would have saved me the wasted $50 (or whatever I paid at the time) and the year of unnecessarily risking my life with an unsafe bike light, because it took me that long to get over the frustration of the $50 sunk cost and throw it in the trash to replace it (that's my fault; I should have realized it sooner).

So yes, if you want to save $50 over the cost of a real bike light, then by all means, buy this toy, which is as functional as a pad of sticky notes, but consider yourself forewarned.
