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.

- 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.
