    Dinotte 200L AA Review

    Well, as I mentioned here, I just got a 200L AA on Monday. I finally got to take it out on one of my usual county road rides that I do. So what do I think? In a word, WOW!

    As I noted in the other thread, I cannot believe how little this light weighs! All of the other reviews here have been spot-on. This is one well-designed and manufactured product.

    Mounting the light was easy with the provided o-ring and it holds in place very nicely.

    Performance: I started the ride on low and then part-way through the ride I kicked it up to high -- my riding partners didn't know what hit 'em! This little light is BRIGHT! I was able to see much better than with any of my old lights and, perhaps more importantly, I felt that on-coming traffic could see me. EVERY car that came towards us dimmed their high-beams as they approached -- something that never happens!!

    I think I'm in love!

    Awesome! I just bought these a couple days ago. Still waiting for them to arrive. I was a little worried they were not going to be bright enough, but I wanted lights that ran off of AA's and this seems like the best one out there for that. I'm glad you like your lights.

    Just remember what their site says about batteries . . . regular old AA will only get you about 30 minutes on high (I've tried it).
