General information about our shipping
Excellent quality. Small and easy to fit. Long lasting off a charge and bright
Very bright good little light used it for a couple of weeks mounted on my seat stay, idea being that if its at an angle less chance of any water getting into usb charge slot, good price well worth it at the moment.
I like this light, it's compact size doesn't diminish it's power output, 6 different light modes to suit different needs & one charge easily lasts me a week of commuting (7 hours). Easy to charge anywhere via the supplied USB Cable, this is a great light
Using the rear light on my winter bike at the moment in conjunction with a Hope. I also intend to use it on the aero post of my TT bike during the summer. I have been out in a few rain showers and have had no problems with water ingress but then I do have mudguards on my bike. Fantastic price on Merlin too!
A good amount of brightness. Wouldn`t fit very well to my S1 aero seatpost but fits very nicely on the seatstay. Happy with product. :)
Light and bright. USB charging port is concealed by the rubber cover, so that the light has to be unmounted to recharge. Would be excellent if the USB port is accessible without dismounting the light.
