What could have been a nice light is now only an expensive flash light for hand held use only. It is big and clunky and build quality is pretty poor. e.g. flap over charging hole fell of after only a few uses.
Don't bother with this one. Light & Motion's one piece lights are much much nicer for similar price. I have had problems with all my rechargeable Niteriders, but have had very good luck with Dinotte and Light & Motion lights so sticking to them for now.
