The engineers at Knog, based just outside scenic Melbourne, Australia, are no strangers to fast-paced commutes on busy, narrow streets. We'd imagine their experiences in a major metropolitan area are part of what inspired the brand to create a line of bike lights specifically dedicated to the safety of urban cyclists. The Blinder Mob Eyeballer Front Light is a part of that line, and the tiny light -- weighing just 35g -- emits up to 80 lumens 1000 meters in front of you to keep motorists aware of your presence. Knog purposely designed the light to require a long button push to prevent you from turning it on and draining battery unintentionally, and it includes two interchangeable silicone straps to mount the light to a traditional or aero seat post. The Eyeballer's lithium battery lasts anywhere from eight hours to over 70 hours, and is easy to recharge with its integrated USB plug.

If the light were stronger and more focused I might keep this Knog light, but it is not much stronger or focused than a bike light that I already have.
Still, Knog is a good brand but they need to continue working on their designs.
I'm very much hoping that they've improved their quality control, as it used to be atrocious. Of the 6 or so Knog Frogs I've owned, about half of them self destructed quickly, and half are still kicking. On the other hand, I've have a v4 Blinder for a year or two that I've had no issues with.
No problem plugging the light in to charge, and I prefer the integrated plug vs a separate cable. Charging time is on par with comparable lights in this price range.
The interchangeable straps just seem like extra stuff to lose. I preferred the older style with the integrated strap, despite the fact that it was smaller diameter. The one thing they could have done to offset this would have been to include a clip attachment so the light could be affixed to a saddle bag or backpack.
Power button is hard to reach if the light is tight up against the saddle or the saddle bag.
Other than a few small complaints, I'm pretty happy with this light. It's bright, easy to attach and remove, and decently priced for the brightness and features. Assuming it continues to hold up, I'll continue to recommend it.
I would highly recommend.
Unfortunately the clasp mechanism that holds the light to the bike isn't very reliable.
I've lost two of these lights on moderately bumpy roads. The first one I thought was possibly a fluke, so I purchased another. Boop, she's gone. The design flaw is confirmed in my eyes. I will not be purchasing another light from Knog as they appear to all use the same clasp design.
