charging mechanism terible
Verified Buyer Reviewed by AD from seattle WA on Wednesday, March 1, 2017
On first glance, the charging mechanism is pretty neat - no open ports for water to leak into. Rather, magnetic connection ports snap onto a separate usb stick, which plugs directly into your computer. However, the usb stick plug is extremely cheap - a thin chip rather than the complete metal housing that most USB plugs have. This thin chip then does not hold the bike light/usb stick in position to actually charge via the usb port. You can try to prop it up in position so it actually does charge, but this usually works only for a few minutes, and the extremely fickle connection is lost. Extremely poor execution of in seemingly good design idea. The result is a bike light you cannot charge, do not buy.
