    • Big
    • Heavy
    • Very Old Technology

    Best Uses

      Comments about Planet Bike Blaze 2 Watt Headlight - Closeout:

      I use many lights of various brands. I don't need the newest technology but this model is VERY old. My comments are comparing this price range, so not against more expensive units - to be fair.

      LED technology has improved drastically, so newer generations are brighter, run cooler (meaning better battery run time, and battery/light life), and even flash patterns.

      This light is also much larger than many other in this range, and heavier. I know the brand well, and the models and while one might think this 2 watt is twice as bright as the 1 watt, it is only minimally brighter, and at the cost of battery run time. Interestingly, the 1 watt seems to have a more durable case too, so plastic less prone to cracking.

      Worth noting, I have both.

      In this price range - actually, I paid less - my go to is Serfas, which I've had for well over a year. Its an AA configuration too, but much smaller and looks much better on the bike, tremendously brighter and overall construction is much better.

      This 2 watt is relegated to a single speed to ride in the park, without cars, yet with full street lighting.

      Its been a long time since 2011!
      I paid in the mid $20's then.

      A personal preference on lights, but confirmed in a light study. in London, a notoriously congested city and many bike hazards - the strobe or rapid blink of alight like this in many cases blinds and stresses the oncoming driver. The study suggests a slower blink. My comparison is what it feels like when a camera flash goes off and the momentary blinding or blackout effect. This units rapid pace will be seen, but it blinds - I don't use it.

      Good when it works.

      Pros

      • Bright Several Modes

      Cons

      • Turns Itself Off

      Best Uses

        Comments about Planet Bike Blaze 2 Watt Headlight - Closeout:

        Attaches fairly easily and securely to road bars. Three modes - bright, regular and flash. Reasonable battery life with disposable batteries, which I prefer to USB. Problem is - even on fresh alkaline batteries it often turns itself off, mid-ride. So I have to check it often (in the daytime, obviously) to be sure it's still on. Not reassuring.

            Nice little light. Great bang for the buck. I use it to complement an existing headlight, both beams merging for larger and brighter ground coverage for mountain biking....

            Comments about Planet Bike Blaze 2 Watt Headlight - Closeout:

            This thing never made one night as the lock tab that holds the lamp head on the battery box failed to stay locked and the lamp head fell off. This thing would not qualify as a good target as no amount of trying to line up the line to latch it works as the head falls off. A flashlight clamp with a maglite would be more reliable.

                Seems to have some sort of internal flaw that turns it off after about 30 minutes. I will turn it on when I leave my house and then notice after a few miles that it's off. Not happy with this purchase.

                  Great light though a bit heavier than your typical on-handlebar mount light. Much stronger beam and strobe. Attractive design though considerably larger than the more common, smaller-battery oriented night lights.

                    I was worried this light wouldn't be very bright. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure there are brighter lights out there, but this light is great for visability at night. It's strobing feature is a real attention getter. Plus the bright, steady function makes sight visible on predictable roads. You'd need something better for mountain biking at night, but for many uses (road biking on semi-lit roads) and commuting, this bike is helpful.

                    The ratcheting strap, similar to any extra-large zip tie, must be adjusted to properly attach to headlight to the handlebar. Be careful when adjusting the ratcheting strap; I know how to reduce the effective diameter, but not how to release the ratchet.

                    I recommend minimizing the gap between the two ends of the strap, and flip the cam-lock up. If you adjust everything properly, the light will be firmly attached to your handlebar.
