I ride 52 miles a day on my bike. 80% of the ride is in the dark, which means I need a reliable set to get me to and from work, while letting the vehicles around me know I am there. I oringally bought this set as a temporary set until I bought a HDD setup for my bike. Since the cost was so amazingly low, it was worth it even if they were junk. I ordered the lights and was immediately impressed at the strength of the lights. They easily attached to my bike, although the head lamp took some work because my handlebars are not a cylinder, but a sloping tube. I put normal duracel batteries in and fully expected them to wear out quickly, because of the strength of the light. I have owned the lights for 9 months, riding to and from work 5 days a week, keeping the lights on for at least an hour a day, normally two hours. I just replaced the batteries for the FIRST TIME!! The battery life is truley amazing. Keep in mind I only use the flash function on the lights, rarely do I need the constant head light, since I know my routes by heart now. If you are exploring a new area, keep the constant on. The rear I always keep on a fast flash since it is more visible than a constant. My one and only negative, which is really more negligence on my part than design flaw is that you have to pay attention when you are putting them on. They click into their mounts. If you don't click it, they will fall off. Mine have fallen several times and they still work perfectly. I never needed to get the $100+ dollar HDD light. This set worked flawlessly for me.
