It's bright to you standing a few steps away. You need to look at it on your bike from one - ideally two - blocks away and in broad daylight. Cars speeding at +50 mph cover that distance pretty quick, and you have to depend on the driver looking at the road and not their smartphone as they're closing that gap in seconds.

I do 20 - 35 mi rides on the weekdays and 35 - 60 mile rides on the weekends. I put more miles on my bikes than I do my car. So I want/need to be seen from faarrr away.

In the fall, I can end up riding for an hour or more after sundown. I have this in the 50 lumen version on my seat post, augmented with a pair of 50 lumen CatEye Rapid X at 45-degree angles on the seat stays. All in strobe mode.

Up front I have another pair of white 50 lumen CatEyes on the fork and an Urban Light & Motion 800 on my handlebar (will be replacing it with an 1100 lumen or better by Labor Day).

You may think it's overkill, but it's how much I value my life. If I could, I'd look like the space ship from Close Encounters. Being seen day or night is paramount for ones safety.

Great light, I recently upgraded from an older and lower-powered Cygolite Hotshot to this exact one. I fully recommend this light for any cyclist, it's incredibly bright, easy to charge, it mounts securely, and isn't too expensive.

That said, this isn't such a great price. I got mine for $30.60 on eBay (minus a bit from one of those frequent coupons). In fact, same seller still has some, but raised the price to $30.65!

I've seen these lights in action

they are SUPER FOOKIN BRIGHT

Like, I don't wanna ride behind someone with these lights because I'm afraid of seizures. I don't suffer from seizures but if anything can induce them it's this stupid thing.

I'll second that. I have the 100 lumen version of this light and people riding behind me always comment. Great light though, the battery lasts quite a while in blink mode.

I can't for the life of me figure out why this would be $30, let alone $50. The only feature it has that mine doesn't is adjustable tempo (I put no value in being single Led). But mine also has multiple colors, magnetic and strap mounting, and was only $10 ish. I don't see a brand name on it, but it seems like fantastic quality.

Does your have 150 lumens and a usb rechargeable battery that last months. If not there's your answer.

I would turn down the brightness for night riding.

I have one and I only use it during the day.

I don't know the lumens, but it has 4 brightness settings and the brightest, on white, is insanely bright. as for the USB rechargeable battery that lasts months, yes, but I only use it for a few hours a week, but I've never recharged it, and it's been since around Christmas time.

This site has done an extensive review on several of the highest rated bike lights on the market.

https://thewirecutter.com/reviews...ke-lights/

I would imagine if your $10 no-name light works so well. They would have surely pointed out. Look dont get me wrong.. a light is a light. And Im sure your's is bright and works well. That said if you were to compare your $10 light side by side to this one.. which is literally rated as the best one tested.. I'd imagine you'd see quite a difference in pretty much everything and instantly understand why its more expensive. Things typically cost more for a pretty good reason. They even specifically address this point:

"Any light is better than nothing, but very inexpensive lights—like those $15 blinkers sitting right next to the register in the bike shop—are too weak to be easily seen in traffic and cost only a few dollars less than the lights we recommend."
