Relatively easy to install and sturdy.
Clark A.
Also, it uses uncommon awkward batteries instead of normal ones, so when the batteries go out then it will be a pain to replace them.

Stinks because I want to like planet bike.

It performs its core function fine (they all do), and is comfortable to carry in a pocket (with a caveat, see 3). Now, bad stuff:
1) I had two of them shutdown in wet weather. The vulnerable part is the bottom of the unit where the battery compartment is, as water splashing from the rear wheel gets in (an identically designed front white light which is not exposed to the wheel splash is fine in the rain since it gets rained on from *above*). If this happens to you, open it up, leave to dry overnight - although batteries may need to be replaced, which is highly topical, since...

2) The N-size battery is an odd choice: hard to find, about 5x more expensive than an ubiquitous AAA. In perspective - a battery set costs about 30% of the cost of the entire unit...
The light comes with a zinc-chloride (aka "heavy-duty") version of the battery , which , in the 21st century, is essentially a type of a fraud (in particular, the manufacturers' stated light performance characteristics can not be attained with this type of a battery, you need alkaline)

3) The switch is a tiny light-touch push button sticking out from the bottom which invariably gets pushed in a pocket or in a bag. You walk around with a blinking light in your pocket... Bike light switch should be easy enough to locate and engage if you need to turn it on while riding, but not THAT easy...

4) The light can be used only in its own mount - can't slap it on your belt, your helmet, back of the rucksack, back of the bike bag, your friends bike - all those places where sooner or later you'd need to put it on. The other Planet Bike lights don't fit this mount, incidentally...

5) try opening the battery compartment without some kind of a tool...

This light is easy to install on your bike, and easy to detach from the bracket so it doesn't get stolen when my bike is locked outside overnight. The one minor problem is that it often turns itself on when I'm carrying it around in my backpack--you need to pack it to make sure the button doesn't accidentally get bumped.

I've only had the light a few months, but I'm happy with it so far. Relatively easy to install and sturdy.

These guys are great. They make good solid products at an affordable price and they still find room to give back 25% of what they make to the cycling community.

This light is pretty bright for it's size. I've used it rain or shine for quite some time without any problems. This is part of my night riding equipment and clothing which includes Illuminite leg and arm warmers Performance illumiNITE Leg Warmers, and Down Low Glow Side Visibility lights Down Low Glow Lighting Kit - Two Tubes -Ice(blue)

Did not last but one season. Internal electronics shorted, thought it was the battery. S I replaced batteries but still no works. Poor quality.

I like the shape, but the downsides are:
1) There is no "N" size rechargeable battery available.
2) While eBay sellers offer N batteries for less than $1 each, that's relatively expensive.
3) The on/off button is too sensitive, the thing turns on by itself if placed in a bag.
4) Has old "analog" electronics: the units get dimmer and dimmer as the battery wears out. Newer units "boost" the voltage so your light stays just as bright until near the end.
5) Not sufficiently waterproof, tends to fail in the rain.

Stinks because I want to like planet bike. I had one of these over the winter of 2013 for riding at night during the winter. It was bring and the right size, but after about 3 months it failed. I opened it up and there was rust and moisture all inside. I swapped out the N battery which literally took me about 8 stores to find. I filed off all the rust and got it to work for about another week. Then it died. So I figured I'd order another one. Did so, and I even took the time to try to waterproof this one. I put electrical tape smooth around every seam. I taped any area that might possibly allow water in. Well 1 week after using it I noticed that when I shut it off it would continue to randomly blink. I took the battery out and put it back. Still would do it. Then I got caught in a rain storm and guess what? Peace... It's history. I am using 2.95 one from amazon right now that has been through 2 storms and still blinks perfect. Later for this thing.
