Cygolite Metro 360-a mixed review

Had my cygolite metro 360 about a year ish, maybe longer. Lots of nighttime commutes of 10+ miles.

Battery life: A bit better than advertised. Specs says 1:45 at high, I usually got ~2 hours. Medium is 2:30, I usually got ~3 hours. That's not until depletion, just 'hmm, bad lighting, I should slow down maybe.'.

The mount is a bit lacking, however. It's never moved, but the retaining tab broke recently. I didn't notice until I hit a bump and the light went flying.

Then a couple of ******* drivers behind me deliberately swerved to run over the light.

Light still works just fine, however. Had to take a file to it-it got all scratched up and gouged by the road surface, and there were some sharp ridges afterwards. But still charges and illuminates just as well as ever. So 5 stars for the light and 2 stars for the mount.

Mind you the mount did work just fine for a year.
