I'm giving this four stars. It is a great set but there are a couple of minor points.

The front (white) light.

The good: this thing is bright, very bright! It is metal construction so heavier than I expected but it will survive unlike thin plastic ones if it falls off. It runs from a rechargable battery. Easy to change focus, wide beam to narrow beam.

The less than good: the battery is an 18650 (bigger than normal), so you need to use the supplied charger to charge it (this is fairly neutral). However, you cannot charge the battery in the torch unit, you must unscrew it, remove it and charge it. Other similar lights have a USB slot that you can charge the battery in place. Also there are multifunctions, but each is punctuated with off. So it is very bright - off - normal brightness - off - dimmer - off - flash - off - different flash - off. I'd prefer all bright - average - dim - flash 1 - flash 2 - off, as there are less clicks to get to where you want to be.


The tail (red) light.

The good: average brightness, quite small. It can run off one CR2032 (very dim) or two (average brightness).

The bad: not rechargeable, so make sure you buy spare batteries.


Both are easy to remove, so you will need to take them with you when you lock up.


UPDATE - I'm dropping the rating to 3 stars. The larger (white) light leaks. We have been getting a lot of rain recently and I noticed the brightness has dropped and the light is not so focussed. There is a substantial amount of water inside the lens of the torch part with no obvious way to get it out. Longer term it will probably effect the LEDS.
