Onthelight light – Anyone used them ?
yes, used mine half a dozen times in the peaks as my only light and all is a-ok. on high for descent, low for flat and road, low or high for climbing. i’ve had just less than two hours of mixed use without the switch turning to blue so the charge seems to last too.
the switch light stays on when switched off but not when disconnected from battery (obviously). the connector seems fine, gives a nice *pop* when you uncouple it so i reckon it’s watertight and will last, as long as you don’t thrutch on the wires. other connections seem ok too.

I’ve been using mine daily for almost a week now; very bright, the battery / light connection is very secure (it’s a bugger to unplug, to be honest) and mine’s only just gone blue (although it’s meant to spend all of its time on blue so the battery should last ages… proper test at the weekend!)
My only criticisms: firstly I’d rather the indicator light was only on when the light was on; I tend to leave the light on the bike all the time, which means it’s sat there glowing away 24/7. I presume the battery can power it for weeks like this, but it’s a bit of an annoyance.
Secondly the mount holds the light over the stem, which is no good if you’ve got a GPS on there. I suspect some bodging can be done to put the light directly above the bar mount rather than on the sticky-out bit which I might try if I can’t fit it next to the GPS in any other way.Posted 7 years agoJackass123456789Member
Went out with a friend last night who bought one on my recommendation so I was very interested in it’s performance as I don’t have one – lol!
Much brighter than my Joystick (200 Lumens against 900). I have 2 joysticks and have one on bike and one on the helmet, he only had the light on the bike so his light was fixed whereas mine total output is split but his was much brighter. Very good performance even in ‘dim / low’ mode as well, almost if slightly brighter than my joystick in dim mode.
Big green then blue button on the back was very noticable to me riding along side but friend didn’t feel he noticed it whilst riding and didn’t distract him at all.
Looked very well made, battery pack smaller than what I expected and the light unit looked really nice and well made.
For the money I would deff buy one!!Posted 7 years ago
