I tried mounting a Light & Motion light on my helmet, but they are a bit too heavy. The Blackburn Central 200 is perfect for this application. Light and the pulsing mode lasts long enough for several commutes between recharges. I was initially worried about the robustness of the strap and swivel mount, but no issues so far.
It's very small and nice-looking, but I have a few problems with it
- The strap doesn't allow for fine adjustment, so unless you want to pull it really tight and risk tearing it, it's a bit loose. I put a spacer from another light under the strap to make it tight enough.
- It's just not very much light, I would hate to have use it as my only light. With another light it works though.
I haven't used it much yet so I don't know how long the battery charge will last.
Well made, powerful, light weight and small, this light is ideal for just having 'along' so that when the sun sets you can see and get home safely. Good battery life, bright, and USB charging make it just about perfect.
