Great lights, bright, very noticeable for daytime riding and early dusk (update: lower star rating)
on March 18, 2016
Purchased both front (white) and rear (red) Super Bright Blitzu Cyborg lights for my new road/hybrid bike. Great lights, bright, very noticeable for daytime riding, even early dusk. I use the white/front on steady and my rear/red on regular/slow flash. Seem to work great and I've not been even close to hit by a car, and I ride on very winding, hilly country roads in New Hampshire. Did a lot of research lights before I purchased these from Amazon and really feel like they do a great job of getting me that extra bit of notice coming around a corner or when obscured by shadow or roadside bushes and trees.
Easy and quick to charge via the short USB cable, but have to remember to take them off the bike after each ride to ensure that they're ready to go for the next one. But the charge seems to last for a long time and I haven't come close as far as I know to running out on my couple hour rides. If I had any quibble at all it would be that the "locking" mechanism by which they attachment to the bike is a bit fiddly. The rubber strap itself is good and solid, but the small square plastic slot the light back fits into is difficult to get the light into sometimes in a tight space, such as on the seat seat post between the top tube and the carry bag under the saddle. I can make it lock in with a bit of fussing each time, but it's not a simple snap and go as it is with the front light which has more room.

Changing my rating from 5 to 4 stars: This morning when taking off both lights to charge for a ride tomorrow, the plastic retaining clip snapped on one (it had already on the other). This makes both lights now, front and back, without any kind of fastener to keep the light in the slotted holder, other than gravity and friction. Neither of these breakages are from wear and tear as they've only been taken out a few times for charging since adding them to the bike. I'm trusting they'll both stay in during future rides, but will be returning one or both if they pop out and I can't rely on them to stay attached to the bike.
