Provides truly excellent wide-field lighting for biking distance (e.g. about 15-20ft). As some have already said, the 3xAAA batteries don't last long on "High". Would have been much better using 3xAA batteries even with larger size (which might have helped with plastic fragility issues below.) It was, however, VERY easy to use.
Would have received 5 stars EXCEPT... After just weeks of use, every time I changed the batteries I had to realign the battery contacts to maintain electrical contact and enough tension to retain the batteries in the battery holding assembly. Not a super big problem, BUT...
One plastic side case latch "tab" broke off within months. The design for that element does seem a bit thinner than I'd like for this type of device. I had to TAPE (transparent tape), rubber-band, or cable-tie the back and front case sections together each time I changed batteries (But if use rubber band or cable-tie, it covers part of lens and obscures light a bit).
It initially was very easy to clamp/remove from handlebar, BUT...
The lower plastic mounting assembly had problems soon after above broken latch tab. It started with one push-in release button intermittently sticking in the "locked" position, requiring multiple GENTLE manipulations of assembly to remove the light from the handlebar. Ultimately unable to securely clamp lamp to handlebar mount...internal mount parts and spring problem.
