Cat Eye HL-EL135 Front Lamp
Slow burn: high power.

- Cat Eye HL-EL135 Run Times: 80h constant or 100h flashing from 2 x AA batteries supplied.
'There are several things about this light that make it very good. It's small, it has a good mounting (a band capable of fitting nearly anywhere you like), it runs for ages on two AA batteries, it's weatherproof, and it costs under £20. For being seen, this is a great little unit, but it's not that great for seeing where you're going. Then again, it's clearly not intended for that kind of use. The mode when turned on is flashing, making it legal, and the second mode is constant. By far the best aspect of this light is how visible it is from the sides. The LEDs are quite far forward in the reflector, making it more noticeable because it's more than bright enough to attract attention. Of all the lights on test this is by far the best as regards visibility from obtuse angles.'
Verdict: 9/10 For being seen, this is a wonderful light and the price is fantastic.' Cycling Plus November 2006.
