What a bunch of light nUrDz
They pulled the entire thing apart just to rip the light a new one? wtp... Sure it may be made in Korea or some 3rd world country, I don't know... What do you expect for $80 900L 3hr run time light?
Sure it may heat up a bit more then other LED lights and therefore it may not last you as long. My HID light used to get so freaking hot I couldn't touch it. My $500 LED L&M light may be better built to last me a long time but I paid a pretty penny for it. For $80 I can pull a slightly brighter (less quality not so long last lasting) light to get me out of the woods and still ride at the same speed as my 700L L&M one? I'll spent those $80 anytime. After all, is my BACKUP light. Backup to a $500+ quality one.
Here is my justification... if that $80 light will last me one year, I could have bought five of them to last me FIVE years. I paid over $500 for my 700L L&M Seca. I expect that L&M to last me 3 maybe 4 years. So at the end, I would have spent less with the cheapo light but just as bright. Again, I am only buying one and for BACKUP!!! I never bought anything from these guys so if they stiff me at $80 that is better then being stiffed for $500 quality light.
Do your re-search folks... if you are tight on wallet a $500 light to do occasional night rides may not be for you. But if you doing 12/24 hrs or adventure night races, you gonna want to have a good QUALITY light.
