      I like the light but the charging port got loose. Nashbar was kind enough to replace the light but the same thing happened again after only 15 uses. So I requested a different light. The light was great except for the fact that I couldn't charge it anymore! Maybe it's my fault but I have had at least ten different lights over the past 25 years and this was a first.

        I had trouble getting it to charge until I used the USB cable that was included. When the battery is extremely low the blue charging light does not come on immediately. I was going to return as defective until I switched USB cords. Now I'm completely satisfied.

        Did a 6 hour ride this weekend, and the battery lasted the entire time. I did lower the brightness to extend the time.

        Comments about Moon Sport XP-780 LED Headlight:

        Very bright which was my number one criteria since I want to use for defensive riding in daylight as opposed to riding in the dark. My big concern is drivers who pull out from a cross street when I am entering the intersection with right of way. I can already see them hesitating either because they saw me for the first time or they were not sure if I am some emergency vehicle (I use the blinking mode) and they are not sure what I am so it causes them to think before they pull out. The battery in the blinking mode lasts pretty long as I did a 4 hr ride this past weekend and while it degraded automatically to the lower level it is still bright enough to see in daylight. When I start out in overcast or early morning light you see it lighting up any reflective road sign for several blocks. I have not experienced the issue with the USB connection that was mentioned by someone else. My two main issues are weight (feels like an extra small water bottle) but someone mentioned the metal housing is good for dissipating heat. My biggest gripe was mounting as I ride a TT bike and everything is aero and the main mount is made for round handlebars. I thought about using it on my aerobars with the mount but it only points forward which would mean pointing to the side of the aerobars. All the mfg needs to do is make the light slide into the guide from different directions and it would be golden. Luckily the helmet mount with velcro has a rubber pad underneath and I am able to attach upside down under my aerobar and the rubber pad holds very tight against my padded wrap and very secure over rr tracks etc. Wouldn't use in a race since not very aero but better than a hospital stay.

            Ordered one of these in March 2014. First one worked great for two charges, then the USB charger quit working and the light would not charge. Sent it back and Nashbar replaced it. The replacement light would not charge at all. Returned it to Nashbar and they refunded the purchase. Would not recommend buying this light unless it is deeply discounted and you want to take a chance on an unreliable product.

                The first one would not charge at all. I returned it for exchange and the second you sent me works only when plugged into the charger. The battery will not charge. Moon Sport quality ranks near zero in my opinion.

                  Comments about Moon Sport XP-780 LED Headlight:

                  I must admit, the "Moon" name made me apprehensive. -Never heard of Moon before, but the brightness rating was clearly superior to others that were rated higher, so I took the chance.

                  I wasn't disappointed, and for the month that I've used this unit, it has performed admirably and exceeded my expectations, and with no short-comings.

                  Yes, the case is metal (-aluminum, I think) and not plastic. Oddly, this is an advantage. Metal will wick heat away from the bulb and function as a heat sink, and thereby allow the unit to operate cooler. -Cooler should translate into a longer life-span.

                  The beam is plenty bright...and wide too. -No "tunneling" like other units that I've used, and it has several power settings, along with blinking. I use a notch or two down from the brightest, and don't use the blinking feature at night since it creaps me out (-a personal thing).

                  I've NOT experienced the USB port problem that I've read here, and the unit is made with a high degree of quality from what I can see. Nothing appears to be second-rate, and my plans are to purchase another for my wife.

                  Light is very bright. 3 brightness's and 3 blink modes (Slow, Fast, SOS). The directions never mention blink mode that you get by pressing the button twice (someone below thought it wasn't there).

                  The handlebar mount is easy and convenient. Haven't tried the included helmet mount.

                  The seems very ruggedly built, with one exception. On the second use, the USB power connector fell out (came out with the charging cable). I have a replacement on order now.

                      Comments about Moon Sport XP-780 LED Headlight:

                      I have a Cyglite 300 that I purchased 6 months ago. I have been very happy with it. When I saw the Moon Sport XP-780 with more than twice the lumens I thought that twice the brightness would be killer! I couldn't resist and when it went on sale, I bought it. Unforutnately, brightness and lumens only corellate when the angle of view is the same. The moon 780 has about the same brightness as the Cygolite 300, because the angle of view is more than the Cygolite. Cygolite doesn't publish it's angle of view so you can't really compare the 2 on paper.
                      The Cygolite has a bright white light and the Moon has a bit of a Yellow tint to it.
                      If I had to choose between one or the other, I would go with the Cygolite. It's lighter, cheaper, and just as bright. I thought the helmet mount on the Moon would be nice but the light is pretty heavy so I haven't tried it.

                      Comments about Moon Sport XP-780 LED Headlight:

                      I purchased this light to have a backup to my NiteRider Lumina 700. On commutes home during the winter the NiteRider gives very little warning the battery is low. With the XP 780 I have easily identifiable warning lights.

                      The light seems a bit heavy when placed on the helmet with the included helmet mount so it stays on the handlebar. The Lumina is lighter and could easily be worn on the helmet. The handlebar mount is very similar to the Lumina so I expect it will perform well.

                      I have commuted home at night with both lights on the handlebar and the XP 780 is indeed a bit brighter than the Lumina as you would expect. The Lumina beam is tighter and more focused compared to the XP 780 but this helps the XP 780 light more of the road to both sides. When comparing the throw of the two lights side by side the XP 780 did a better job illuminating the road ahead on the brightest setting.

                      Only time will tell if the XP 780 has the durability of the Lumina 700. For the reduced price I felt it was worth a try.
