    I don't know anything about that light. I searched for reviews, but didn't find any. For 20 bucks, it's kinda hard to go wrong.

    Here is a list of all reviewed lights on mtbr:

    i have used on of these before. They are okay, pretty on par with a $20 light. What are you planning on using it for?

    Well i just inner-city commute so mostly to be seen rather than see, if that makes sense, considering i am around lots of street lights.

    You would be fine with that light then. A lot of the bike shops have lights like this out on display so you can see how bright they are too.

    On ebay you can choose from several similar LED lights from dealers in China. I've used a few on my city bikes and they work great, battery time is very long. The front lights will give a bit of road illumination but they're main purpose is to make you seen. Here in Europe we also have very small key chain sized white and red LED units that can be attached with an elastic loop. I tie a white one in the spokes of my front wheel and a red one in the back wheel. This gives a lightshow to motorists approaching from either side that is impossible to ignore. These little units are extremely cheap... I suppose they must be available there too.

    Its ok for a "to be seen" light but don't expect it to light uo the road. Its ok for a backup headlight

    I found a lot of diferent stuff for the backlight on this website Twenga - US Price comparison site, shopping guides, user reviews, coupons, they hav tons of stuff from different websites etc..
    And for the lights you have to be carefull, i know that this side of the pond (aka Europe) there are special regulations for the backlights.. I'm not sure how it works in the States, but here theyre kind of a pain in the arse :)
