    Any reviews of the Costco LED flashlights?

    I'm referencing the pair that was $19.99 with a $14.99 price for a little bit. I have a set, but am waiting for some mounts so haven't ridden with them yet. Would love to know how others have found them, and if anyone has compared them to other lights.

    If it's the Cree XPC lights, then the reviews are here.

    I've been using one on my bike. Used an old mount + zip ties and it was good to go.

    Much much better than my old Flare 5. Very, very, very bright. Lasts a good while on strobe mode, haven't tested the actual length though.

    For $15, you really can't mess up. They're great lights.
    Yeah man.

    I bought 4 when they were $15 per pair, just too cheap to pass up. So far they've been great as flashlights. I haven't tried them on the bike yet but I think they'll do fine around town. Not as bright as the MS900 but nothing wrong with that, they are plenty bright for town riding, IMO.

    I'm wondering if it's possible to replace the 3 AAA holder with a lithium battery. I couldn't log on to CPF to read the reviews.

    A large rubber band and small piece of foam should do it.
