I was looking for a front light mainly to "be seen" during my rides when I found this product. I honestly haven't had the chance to use this light while riding my bike (cold winter + old age) but out of the box it looks like an innovative, well made and well thought- out product. I love it's compactness, light weight and built-in USB charging plug. I was worried that its body was going to be too bulky when plugged to the side ports of my laptop but it fits perfectly. The magnet is super strong and, combined with the little weight of the unit, makes for a secure hold so any fears of it falling off with vibration are gone!
Run times seem to be more than adequate (on paper). Output is strong enough to be seen during daytime.
The Knog Plus Front Bike Light is a great little front light for the bike. I have rear light as well and I use them both on my aero road bike because of their narrow profile. They are very bright- I use them for daytime riding and I really like the ingenious design where a USB charging tab integrates into the bike mount. No separate charging cable is needed. The run time in flash mode is more than adequate for such a compact unit. Don’t expect it to go multiple long rides without charging, but it hasn’t failed to see me through the rides I do.
I purchased this light to make sure I am visible to vehicles when running on the road before sunrise. I can clip it to my jacket or attach it to my bike. This light is very bright, lightweight and cars tend to give me more room when they see the light. I love that it does not require cables to charge. I am very satisfied with the purchase.
Small, convenient, and versatile they may be but don’t underestimate how bright and noticeable they are. A great extra light to be seen and see with on the bike and wearing. Easy to use and charge they weigh 17 grams. That is A Lot of safety in a unit this bright. And No matter the season they make great gifts that show you care.
Super handy no charging cable required. Very compact
