Long Lasting and Dependable!
This is my third light of this version. They seem to last somewhere around four to five years. Each one has been a little better than the last. I do notice the models have changed some of the flash modes. I like the variety. Even the lowest setting gives plenty of bright light to make drivers notice me. Last winter, I was stopped one afternoon and asked by a another rider what kind of light I had on my seat post. He had noticed me riding for years and liked the brightness the light gives off. I have been riding for over thirty years. There's a good reason I continue to buy this Light and Motion product.

Terrible mount design and strobe options
- I've put it through the wringer
The mount involves a rubber strap with holes, like a belt. On my standard seat post, the tightest I could make the strap without breaking wouldn't stop the light from moving on the seat post. That's partially because the rubber on the mount itself isn't very big or particularly spongy/grippy. More frustrating than that, the light doesn't release from the mount without taking the whole mount off the seat post. Which effectively means every time you charge the light you have to unhook the strap unless you happen to have a USB cord long enough to reach the bike. Why didn't they make a quick release so that the light can easily detach? My riding partners noted that the red light is always on. That's not quite true, but they are correct that the light is on for several second before it strobes once briefly, or in another setting it throbs very slowly with relatively little difference between full bright and dimmest. The effect is that there's very little dynamic element in any of the available strobing patterns which I think diminishes the effectiveness. Battery life suffers too, less than what is rated. Fail, very disappointing, hence returned. Thank you to CC though for great customer service and return policy as usual.
