Cygolite Dice HL 150 Run Time Concern

I had been looking for a daytime front flasher and settled on this one.

I think it works fine, but I am VERY disappointed in its runtime. I have been using “single flash” which is supposed to give 10 hours, but I am only getting 4 to 5 hours.

I could switch to “triple flash” which is not as bright but allegedly lasts 24 hours.

Any suggestions??

We have started to demand a lot from our electronic devices. It's only fair that we bring a power source with us. I use an external battery for my phone, and maybe you should consider one for your light. With some luck, your light will run while being charged. Some devices do that, but some don't.
