" I was blown away when I first turned on this light as it was so bright.
I found when I used this light it lit up unlit paths amazingly I could see a reasonable distance up ahead despite having the light angled toward the ground. Although I did find it creepy further down as I hit bumps etc although only slightly as it tightens on to the handle bars well with a rubber strap which seems strong enough.
The battery I found to last just about as long as it says it does which is not unusual for lights and considering I have only used it in the cold not surprising. Connections of the wires is solid will not come loose while cycling at all.
I placed the battery in my saddle bag and there was enough cable to reach the handle bars easily.
The light was smaller than expected although a more accurate picture is available from another reviewer. "

" This is the size of saddle bag I was looking for although found it hard to decide but I made the right choice for what I was looking for.
I can fit in this bag -
1- inner tube for 700c with 60mm valve
1- Crank brothers Multi-tool 19
2- Tyre levers
2- front Blackburn flea lights
1- rear Blackburn flea light
This leaves pretty much no room left for anything else although this is all I want to be able to carry this for now.
The bag has a Velcro strap which attaches to under the saddle and a second Velcro strap attaches to the saddle post. feels very secure with no room for much if any wiggle.
The bags trim is also very reflective which is a bonus at night.
Definitely for someone travelling light. "
Pros: Lightweight, small

" I bought this as I was after a dry lube instead of the wet lube which I had as cycling near the beach during the dry months I was collecting a lot of sand with this however it did not attract anywhere near as much sand and muc which is great for keeping it clean. Its also easy to clean off as its water soluble and if i think correctly not to bad for the environment for the oils which is a + as well. "

Should the blue LED on the power switch remain on when the battery is disconnected?

This may well be a silly question, but should the blue LED on the power switch remain on when the battery is connected but the light switched off? It does make it useful to find the light switch when its dark, but I wonder how quickly it will drain the battery? For example, should I be disconnecting the battery from the light each evening to prevent necessary charging? I am guessing that the current draw of the blue LED is so low it's insignificant, but it would be good to have this confirmed.
Mine is only on when it is connected but I am sure it must go off it cant power itself.

 Shimano PD-A520 Touring Pedals
Shimano PD-A520 Touring Pedals
Great value touring SPD pedal with all new lightweight and stylish body.
 

Is it possible to buy reflectors for these pedals so they are road legal?

Im not sure I wondered about this not that I care really as I doubt any police here know about that law but I think most cycle shoes have reflective material on the heel instead. If you have lights and other reflectors I dont see it as being much of a problem. you can also buy reflective sticky strips I have them on my bike but on these pedal would be pointless as you would not see the reflector for your shoes etc.
