It's Okay, But Nothing to Get Excited About
on February 27, 2010
The radio/light is attractive looking. Unfortunately, the sound fidelity is poor because the speaker is very small. The radio is also very hard to tune because the station numbers are extremely tiny and they are placed very close together. It took me 5 minutes, making very slight adjustments, to finally get the station I wanted tuned in properly. I would suggest that you find one station that you like and just keep it there because you can't easily move from station to station. The light is bright enough to let someone know you're there but it's not going to do a great job of lighting the road up for you. The unit does have a handy and easy to use hand crank to give you power on the run, and it could be useful as an emergency radio and light source in a power failure. It's not too difficult to figure out how to use it and mount it to your bike, but mine came without any instructions so I had to figure everything out by trial and error. This product is okay, but it's nothing to get excited about. If I had to do it all over again, I'm not so sure I would buy it.
