Swift 500 Headlight

Streetlights and reflective gear will make you visible as you navigate the alleyways and avenues, but it's always wise to throw a headlight on your steed as you bike home from work or set off for an evening ride. To see every obstacle on the road, and to help others see you, equip your bike with the NiteRider Swift 500 Headlight for confidence when it counts. With the Swift 500 Headlight, you'll be supplied with 500 lumens that alternate between five light modes in NiteRider's lightest weight headlight. The Swift 500 is made from fiberglass-reinforced nylon to withstand impact, dust, and water, and the lithium-ion battery is USB rechargeable for on-the-go operation.
  • A compact headlight to enhance visibility in low-light conditions
  • The lightest weight for headlights from NiteRider at 82g
  • 500 lumens of light cast a powerful beam day or night
  • Low battery indicator lets you know when the light needs juice
  • Dupont housing is designed to withstand water and dust
  • Five light modes with run times between one and 25 hours

No. Does not hold a charge.

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Does not hold a charge. I rarely ride in the dark. When I do ride in the dark I really need to be able to count on my light. This light never held a a charge long enough to be useful to me. I had to ride 4 and half miles home from shop where I got my trike weldedNot having use this late and while it was completely dead, or so I plugged it into charge it overnight… or so I thought. When I got to the shop that afternoon slow it was completely dead. I had to get a much smaller emergency light. Soon after starting home it began pouring rain, and getting very dark. This light sure would have been helpful.

Don't buy it.

It's crap. Got it in early January 2020. Have used it about 5 times. Will not charge up and is stuck on one intensity. Sent NiteRider email explaining issue and have not heard from them.

Great Light

I've put it through the wringer

Small size, robust build, solid attachment to the bike. This is a great light. I like the power button. It is easy to locate without looking down, and the simple blue-is-good-red-is-running-low indication is all one really needs. Because being caught after dark without a light is a pretty big deal, I run two of these lights at the same time at medium setting. This is plenty bright and gives me redundancy in case one fails. Also, during the day I use a single light on the flashing mode and as it turns dark I do not have to be worried if I have enough battery left in that I have a whole other light with a full charge.
