Bike lights are essential to safe night riding and THE LAW, but they are easy to lose and when you throw them in your bag the switch is easily pressed and the light goes on and drains the battery. Those darn watch batteries that most bike lights have are really expensive, not to mention environmentally UN-friendly. Because of these shortcomings, I sometimes find myself riding lightless, which is just stupid.
My two requests for the perfect bike light: they don’t turn on if I breathe on them AND they are rechargeable. Of course Silk Road Cycles had what I needed.
You have to hold them to turn them on and they charge with USB. Check and check. And in the long run they are eco-friendly and wallet-friendly since we no longer need to buy those expensive and toxic watch batteries.
Ride safe, Greenpoint!
