    Works pretty well and I recommend all the time!

    Pros: affordable, small, USB-C connector for charging, lasts a long time, good brightness levels and flash settings, seems durable (mud and water have yet to kill it), and a usable mounting system
    Cons: mounting strap could be a touch longer and offer more slots to adjust (larger aluminum tubing makes for a tight squeeze on the strap)

    For a Fenix light, this one is unremarkable and a bit disappointing. In flash modes the LED on-off cycle lacks the more typical, attention getting, instantaneous switching. Rather the LEDs appear to have a short ramp up and ramp down – in my opinion this is a serious design flaw – instantaneous switching is much better. The beam angle is quite broad with no hot-spot directly behind the bike for addistance. The light offers only low intensity in all flash modes. The 10 lumen max output mode is only steady on. Fenix should have included a high intensity flash mode for daytime riding with longer runtime.

    Pros: Small size and weighs next to nothing, fits round seat posts (not aero posts), removable clip is well designed and wider than the light to add stability when mounted to bike seat bag strap, battery level indicator is nice, light is very well made.

    Simple, effective, quality, lasting, and another happy customer.

    I didn’t buy this light for a bike, I bought it to put on a shoulder harness and then I wear that harness while walking at night so that anyone coming up from behind me can see me at a distance.
    Basically just for safety.

    My thanks goes to fenix for a very good/inexpensive safety light.

    Excellent product for visibility while biking or running. Fenix products are durable and reliable. Fenix products have also earned my respect and I’m a loyal customer. Customer service is also on point.

    After trying many cheap junk to tail lights off of Amazon, I finally settled on this one from Fenix and got it directly from their website to avoid fakes. It has worked flawlessly. The mount is also really useful because it can be hooked to either a seat post or use the adapter so that it can be attached to your backpack or helmet strap.

    Small and light but powerful enough for its purpose, water resistant, long lasting power, effective fastening and directional stability, durable (long term?). No down side that I can determine.

    Love it. Holds a charge for a long time. I had another brand USB rechargeable bike light that wouldn’t even last for a 2-hour ride.
