I am a New York City Actor/Comedian and ride along a poorly lit bike path along the Hudson River. There has been some attacks on bikers lately (Nov-2016). This light, on it’s own, lights up the path and would definitely blind the maggot scum that might seek to attack me.
I employ additional lighting as well on the handlebars to cook anyone’s eyeballs that might want some action. I have it attached to my helmet via 15 lb Velcro. I recommend that over the headstrap.
It came with a Battery as well. Another lamp I bought from another company had no batteries. I truly like this light. Might consider getting a portable recharger to stick that on my helmet so that I can double / triple the duration. No complaints, love this light.
