    Light shuts off

    Comments about Planet Bike Blaze 1Watt Headlight - Closeout:

    I use the strobe to be visible while riding on the road. It's great when it's working but I constantly have to check to make sure it's on and have to restart it multiple times during a ride. Will have to get another one. Hopefully this was just a defective one.

    Comments about Planet Bike Blaze 1Watt Headlight - Closeout:

    Very easy to mount securely, I love this light!

    I commute 12 miles a day, and I have this light on 100% of my commute! When it is pitch black I sometime turn it on high, but most of the time I run it in flashing mode since it gets so much attention from the cars. When it is flashing, I can see the reflections literally 100's of feet away. Really gets the cars attention, I see people stop and wait for me to pass.

    I use rechargeable AA batteries, and I swap them out every two months on a schedule... I have never had the batteries die yet, and a couple of times I have left the light on overnight when I put it in my locker and left the light flashing all night... I use this as my front headlight, and a Planet bike tail light on flashing mode makes me feel really secure. I know I am totally visible to cars, they cannot miss me with the flashing lights going!

    A Bit Disappointed

    By RoadiJeff

    from St. Louis, MO

    About Me Avid Cyclist

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Great visibility
    • Lifetime warranty

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Backup light
      • Night commute

      Comments about Planet Bike Blaze 1Watt Headlight - Closeout:

      This is my second Blaze light. My original one lasted several years before one of the tabs broke that hold the battery compartment together. I didn't know about the lifetime warranty before I bought a second one.

      I've done 3 early morning (pre dawn) commutes with the new Blaze so far. The most annoying thing with it is that it will shut itself off whenever I go over a bump in the road. I can turn it right back on but it is not all that easy when I'm wearing thick winter gloves and it is 17*F. My old Blaze did not do this. I cannot find anything wrong with the light to be causing this problem. I don't think it has anything to do with the cold weather.

      My old Blaze would build up moisture in the lens if I rode in the rain. Maybe the seal was just getting old after many uses. I haven't had a chance to test the new one in the rain yet.

      I'm considering returning the light for something else if I can't get the bumpy road auto shutoff problem fixed. I like the bright light it provides but this problem is way too much trouble, not to mention dangerous. Maybe I just have a lemon and I'll give them one last try with an exchange.

      Pros

      • Easy to install
      • Great visibility

      Cons

        Best Uses

        • Front headlight

        Comments about Planet Bike Blaze 1Watt Headlight - Closeout:

        I use this light for late afternoon rides (I don't night ride) when sun starts to set and I want to be seen. I also have a Planet Bike tail light. These are excellent products and priced right. I like nonrechargable batteries - it makes the product less costly and you can always carry a spare with you.
        This was a replacement for a Cateye Uno (also a good light) but the PlanetBike is much brighter, a tad bigger and heavier but I prefer it to the Uno.

          I started commuting to work this past August. This light helps maintain visibility in daylight hours with the flash mode setting. Provides good light in dark areas at night (I ride in the suburbs of Chicago). I use it in combination with a two watt version and this one watt is actually brighter!

          the best thing about this light is the use of two aa ORDINARY battery. if the batteries can not be replace at the local newstand then what good is the light. not every body sells those wony CR123 or can wait 8 hours to have your battieries recharge. packing aa is also afforadable.

          • Mounting

          Comments about Planet Bike Blaze 1Watt Headlight - Closeout:

          I bought this light for my son's school commute bike; his protection/safety is a top priority...and this light delivers!
          The mounting bracket took a few minutes to get optimum fit, but seems like it should stay in place. The light unit detaches from the mount quickly (security benefit). Very bright with ample light dispersion to the sides/peripheral. Standard beam, "high" beam and intermittent strobe options are more than sufficient. Excellent product for the price.

          Cons

          Comments about Planet Bike Blaze 1Watt Headlight - Closeout:

          With this light you will definetly be seen. However don't expect it to light up the road a whole lot. I wouldn't use it for trail riding at night. Great for commuting on known routes. It was easy to install and fits oversized bars well. Seems to stay put once the clamp is adjusted correctly (quite tight). Haven't had it long enough to need to change the batteries, but I checked to see how difficult that would be and it can be done easily right on the bike.

          With two light level and strobe this light is versatile for both city and night trail riding. High setting has plenty of punch but uses battery more quickly.

            I use this light for finishing up road rides at night fall. It is probably twice as bright as my previous light. It is also bright enough that i will try to ride the single track at night. I have yet to run down the first set of AA batteries and i was surprised to see the long life. I would recommend this light to a friend!
