The Nipro tail light is pretty awesome. It is small and long, instead of short and fat like the other ones I have owned or reviewed. It stays out of the way, so I know that I don't have to worry about anyone knocking it off while they are riding and breaking it. It is suppose to be pointed at an upward angle but I don't know how to get it that way on the bike. No matter which way I put it on there, it always ends up pointing right back at the tire.
Another great thing about this product is the fact that it is USB powered. All the others I have used, have been battery powered and got really expensive to keep changing them. I love that this one comes with the USB cord. I think the first time I charged it, it took a few hours to be ready to go. To charge it, all you have to do is unscrew it from the base and the strap and the port is hidden below. This way you don't have to take it off the bike to get it charged. Just unscrew the top part, charge and then screw it back in!
The light has three different modes. You get to those modes by pushing in on it. Each push is a different setting. The first click, is the high setting. The light says it will last about 3 hours on high, on one charge. The second click, is low. I can't tell much of a difference between that and high. There must be a difference though, because it says it lasts 6 hours on low, which is 3 hours longer then high. Lastly, the third click, is the blinking red light function. It says that this one will last an astounding 50 hours! I have never left the light on long enough to test any of these numbers. My husband is on his bike a lot, but not when this is needed at night. Back and forth to work is all he does, so this first charge should last a long time!
I love the look of this product. It keeps my husband safe and ready to go, any time day or night! You need to keep yourself protected.
