Best of it: I love the remote mounted thumb button.
Worst of it: No big warning sign on the charger that says “Make sure you turn the light ON before unplugging it from the battery and plugging the battery into the charger so you don’t leave it plugged in all night charging just to find out at 0510 that it didn’t charge at all and you have to bike to work in the dark.”

Update: 1/31/2012

I’ve had the CygoLite now for 5 years. It’s been on two bikes. It still works.

Battery life has been reduced some. It doesn’t last as long as it first did.

Did I mention, it’s been 5 years!?

This light has been a GREAT investment. There are newer, lighter, more expensive options out there now. However, the CygoLite has been going strong for me and I don’t intend to trade it in yet.

Long-term Rating: +++++
