Reviewed by Scottmunster from Northern California on Wednesday, October 7, 2015I have had this light for over a year and half. Within a month of initially purchasing it from another retailer it would automatically turn off at the slightest bump going down the road. I would have to turn it back on 15-20 times during a 5 min ride. I switched to using my back packing headlamp for a while and sent the bike light in for warranty replacement. I had the replacement for about 8 months before it started doing the exact same thing. I do NOT recommend this product.
Reviewed by JP from BK, NY on Monday, July 6, 2015As others have noted, the light does not stay on the mount easily and minimal impact will jar it loose. This happened to me and the light broke going over a minor bump.

Reviewed by Hikin Jim from Orange County, CA on Thursday, January 22, 2015I've used headlamps for hiking that were made by Princeton Tec which is a name brand for flashlights and headlamps. I assumed their expertise would carry over to cycling head lights. Alas, no. These head lights have a fatal flaw: They cannot withstand vibration. And I'm not talking about the kind of severe shocks they would encounter from a mountain biker. No, I'm a road cyclist. I use my bike to commute a few times per week to work and back. I seldom ride for more than an hour or two at a time. In other words, I'm subjecting these to fairly light duty. At first they work fine. They're not the brightest, so I bought several, a couple for me and a couple for my daughter. One by one, they failed. They were fine at first, but after a couple of months, they started spontaneously shutting off. I thought it might be the batteries, but the batteries were fine when I put them into a battery tester. For a while, I could just turn the lights back on if they went off, but as time progressed, they ceased to function altogether. I've now taken the lights off of my daughter's bike to use for my commute (they've seen less wear), but alas those are now failing too, and now on the first set I bought, I can't even turn them back on when they turn off.
These lights might be fine as a small flashlight (you can remove them from the bike mount), but they are a complete failure for cycling -- unless you consider a 2 or 3 month life to be satisfactory.
I cannot recommend these for any function where vibration or shock would be involved. The are certainly not suitable for cycling.
