I bought 1 about a month ago and have just now been able to use it. I never received a battery charger for it, Pricepoints fault not Cygo's. The light itself is great. It has 4 modes for each setting, constant & blinking. You cannot have 1 light blink while the other is constant, they are both constant or both blinking. They supply a small rubber strip that attaches to the battery to help protect your frame. The rubber strip is pretty chinzty and should be twice as large IMO.
The velcro battery strap is 1.5 inches wide and fits through a slot on the battery. It holds really well, I don't expect it to wear out anytime soon. They also give you a small 1/2" velcro strap to help tie your cables but it's better used on the handlebar clamp. The clamp is a flip-lock lever but "un-flips" quite easily. I can really tighten down on the clamp to get it more secure but it's so much that I'm afraid of busting it. Just back off a little & use the small strap around the clamp as stated, it fits perfectly.
The connection for the battery into the light unit itself is really snug, it's not going to fall out on you on your ride. I have not used this light in the rain yet so I can't attest to its durability in bad weather. Aside from adjusting your headlight up & down, it has some lateral adjustment as well to help you get the lights centered just right, a nice touch. Overall I'm really pleased with this light & you should be as well. As a side note, Cygo does not have spare parts for the Dual Cross on its website yet. If you need a replacement part they will work with you to help get you the correct part. Enjoy your new light, it's great!
