    I’m a sucker for a display, so the backlit OLED digital fuel gauge sold me on this light. As far as I can tell, the gauge is pretty accurate, although to be honest I have never run it so low as to test its automatic output step-down function. Regardless, I prefer the more precise numerical readout as opposed to just a multi-element of color-changing LED. I wish the remote could also activate the boost mode with a longer press without having to hold it down constantly. As it is, the remote is only useful to use as an instant flash to warn oncoming motorists and others.

    The two things that I would like to see in a future update would be to get rid of the turbo mode and make the 1600 lumen setting be the high; and for the remote to be turned into a mode switch instead of a turbo boost button.

    (verified owner):

    I purchased this light for my commuter bike. The light is definitely bright, especially when using the Burst pressure switch. I don’t ride in the rain so I don’t know how the water resistance is. The body seems very durable, but I haven’t dropped it.

    1. There are no instructions on aiming the light so as not to blind oncoming traffic. I guess this doesn’t matter if you don’t use it in urban traffic, but it would be nice to know where the upper/distant beam should be aimed like when you adjust car headlights. The photo shows the Anti-glare design, but how far away is that pedestrian?

    2. Battery capacity is much lower than the chart says. I’ve tried charging/discharging a few times, but I can never get the digital readout to show more than 1h 57min on the 800 lumen High setting. This would be about 75% of what the max time is supposed to be.

    3. The included mount is nice, stays on well. However, it’s designed for flat bars only and doesn’t fit well on more relaxed mustache/swept-back types of bars like my commuter bike has. So my light sits tilted, causing the beam to be angled. They really should offer a mount with a ball/socket or side hinge so that the light can be tilted sideways too, not just pivoted left/right.

    Overall, the mount issue would probably be the same with any brand of light I try in this lumen range that doesn’t have an external battery pack. The battery issue is disappointing, especially since this is a brand new light. I always ride with a backup light anyway, but if you’re out in the woods that extra 30 min of power is a big deal.
