CREE XML XM-L T6 LED Bike Light

The Light came in yesterday. And all I have to say is DON"T LOOK INTO THIS LIGHT! I mean it will blind you.

The light is at least 900LM in high mode. In low mode it's about the same as a AA flashlight at about 300LM. It has a lighted switch that glows Green (75% - 100%), Blue (50% - 75%), Yellow (25%-50%), Red (10% - 25%). There are 4 modes to run this light in. High, Med, Low and flashing. The flashing mode is in high only and you have to hold the switch for 3 seconds to get it in that mode.

As far as what you get with the light:
1 * CREE XML T6 Headlight
1 * Headlight Band
1 * 4400mA Li-ion Battery
1 * Power Charger
2 * Plastic Rings
I did not *** a User manual but I just throw it away any ways. LOL

The Battery is a 8.4 V 4400mA Li-ion. So at 9 watts and 8.4v you'll get about 4.1 hours run time. (9/8.4=1.0714)(4.4/1.0714=4.1 hours). So in the real world in thinking about 3.5 to 4 hours. In med mode it should run about 6 hours. In low mode you should get about 12 hours.

All in all I say is this light is way brighter than any other light you can get for $40.00. I have bought a few run of the mill bike lights like Bell, Schwinn ect... And none of them are even close to this light in low mode. I have a NiteRider NoMad, M-11 bulb 10 watt 6v light which is not as bright as this light in med mode. So if you need a bright bike light for less than $50.00 this is the light for you. With this light you can see up a head as well and be seen.

Here is the link to the web site I order it from:
