I often use this light as a backup to the Vis1000 that I run. There are times when I forget to even turn on the Vis1000 because this light works so well. The helmet setup took a min to figure out, but once I figured it out, it was very easy to set up. It's very light, I forgot I even had it on my helmet. 10/10.
Our team rides a lot through the night, and we've used a lot of lights in our day. We haven't found one that's as balanced in terms of illumination, size, and battery life as this one. We've used this light on countless rides where we're pushing the limits of what our equipment can do, and the Vis 1000 keeps delivering.
Our team use this light on a 350-mile non-stop ride, and never had to charge it once. The different power-saving settings are great, the light is durable and very waterproof. We highly recommend to anyone looking for a tried and true light to last them years.
I have several StellaPro lights. I was looking for something that provided flash with a fast and reliable recycle times, without overheating. I do macro focus stacking and some of my images can be over 1,000 images. Anne, helped me understand the difference between the different models and accessories, then sent them to me very quickly. Once received, I was very pleased with the versatility, ease of use and solid design and build. A little in the pricey side, but I find it’s worth the money. If they were a bit cheaper, I would buy 3 more to replace some of my other lighting. Gets my strong recommendation.
I bought this light in October 2022 and use it 2x-3x a week. It's an awesome little light and was very effective during my dark (and also, for the record, cold) morning rides in New England. In April the USB tab broke off, but I wasn't diligent about cleaning it when it got hard to take in and out.
After confirming it was under warranty, Light & Motion replaced it in about a week. Really superb customer service.
I also own an L&M headlight (VS1000) that I recommend.
