I could not get it to work. I bought it two bike shops and to a watch shop and no one could figure out how to get it to work. It is nicely built...but, I do not know why following the directions did not make it operable. Possibly newer MODELS NOW DO WORK. Solar lights when this was first bought were evolving.

I bought two of these lights and both were of poor quality, so I don't think I received a defective "one off." The solar portion of the light works fine -- it charges during the day and produces a bright light at night. But the small pieces are poorly designed and all broke within a week of use: the clip that attaches the light to the handlebar, the sliding device that allows the light to be detached from the clip, the battery cover. I taped it all back together with duct tape and now both lights are functional, but pretty ugly -- and of course I can't use the slider to remove the lights from the handlebars.

Good illumination for the price. Attached easily to my mountain bike. Got caught in a downpour and the solar panel lens leaked. We'll see how that affect future performance. Only complaint is that light diffuses UP into my eyes when I'm riding. I attached a piece of tape as a lens hood to block this problem. Could use a lens hood or maybe some type of opaque coating on top arc of lens at manufacture to solve this issue.
I like that it's solar powered and comes with a mount ... however, it is not well made.The battery cover will sometimes pop off when I go over bumps, and then I have to collect all the parts off the street. The mount isn't designed for handlebars as wide as mine, but I don't think mine are unusually wide. The worst is, though, even with 5 LEDs, this light isn't bright enough. I'm going to have to get a different one for winter when I regularly bike at night.
