Picture shows Bidwell Park bike path at night. iPhone camera does not do it justice. Much brighter in person.
My wife has been using the light recently, and the experience of riding with her has been interesting. A couple of nights ago she and I and our teen daughter were riding back from dinner. At one point, with my wife in the rear, I said to our daughter: "Watch out, there's a car coming up behind us!", to which my daughter replied, "No -- that's just Mom's bike light". It's that bright.
Switching the batteries is super-easy in the dark. The batteries take quite a long while to charge, and they can only charge when they're inside the body of the lamp, so it's not really feasible to recharge one battery while using another.
I replaced my old PrincetonTec Switchbak 2 with this new Cygolite. I was afraid that the small new Cygolite would not match the brightness of my old light (which was separate lamp and battery brick). I was pleasantly surprised that the Cygolite is even brighter than my old PrincetonTec.
Before ordering the Cygolite I shopped in REI and tested the Light and Motion TAZ 1200. Based on how bright the Cygolite 850 turned out to be, I am now glad that I did not get the TAZ 1200 which would have been overkill for commuting and approximately $100 more.
I even read reviews of the Cygolite models and one review tested the lower models and then commented, "Cygolite even offers this light in an 850 model which would be overkill for most commuters." I was skeptical and persistent that I needed 850 lumens. In hindsight I can now see that the lesser models would likely have been plenty for almost any commute. That said, I'm still glad to have the power of the 850 at my fingertips if I ever need it.
Great features offered by this Cygolite to keep in mind:
- Light can be unclipped from mount; this means you can aim it correctly and then just unclip the light part off the bike when you lock up somewhere. Many similar lights do not unclip and require you to remount and aim with each removal.
- Small size: this light is almost as small as a Cateye two AA battery blinkie light.
- USB chargeable with charger included.
If there was anything I would want to change about this light, I would want side illumination ports to allow the light to be visible from the sides. That said, Cygolite offers that feature on the 310, 400, and 550 models which probably had more commuting in mind.
So happy I went with this light.
