Kind of Blinding

Great little commuting light. I usually buy the cheap and highly portable ones which I lose almost instantly. The price was hard to swallow at first but I'm glad I got it. It is great, highly visible, rechargeable which is great.

The other night on my commute home I was told "That's kind of blinding!" by someone. Which I loved, that is kind of the point. It helps you be seen.

The light works

Great light for night or day rides. Very bright high setting acts just like a car headlight; bright enough even on dark country roads. Flashing setting makes you more visible for day rides.

Cygolight Streak - Bright but Dumb

I really want to like this light. It's compact, it's really bright - all in all - it seems solid. But Cygolight dropped the ball.

My other rechargeable lights, all Nite Riders, use backlit power buttons that let you know when the light is running out of juice. All give you some warning, so you don't literally get left in the dark.

Apparently, Cygolight decided that a bright, USB-chargeable design was good enough. Perhaps they thought that most cyclists wouldn't mind the light dimming out without warning during a ride. For a bike commuter like me, though, that was a bad decision.

Cygolight seems like a decent brand. I hope they rework this light. For example, they could include a blinking red LED under the power button to alert the rider that they were running short on run time. Until they do, avoid this light.
