The Cateye HL-MC200 Bicycle Headlight has been in my arsenal of motorcycle gear since my freshman yr of faculty (over 7 years in the past). Sadly, it is without doubt one of the worst bike lights I’ve ever encountered and definitely not a product I might ever suggest.
The issue with the sunshine will not be that it doesn’t work or that the sunshine will not be brilliant sufficient, however that it merely burns by means of batteries like no person’s enterprise. The sunshine makes use of 4 AA batteries and even at full cost appears to final not more than 20-Half-hour (if that).
Along with being a compete battery hog, it’s removed from electrically sound (giant bumps often trigger the sunshine to modify off), neither is it waterproof.
I’ve by no means used the sunshine on any type of bicycle tour or journey of any size… and albeit I don’t assume it will final by means of such an occasion. The Cateye HL-MC200 would possibly make for a fantastic little commuter gentle (which is especially how I’ve been utilizing it), however even for brief journeys this bicycle headlight appears to do nothing however disappoint.
What about you? Have you ever ever used this gentle? What do you consider it? Most significantly, what sort of bicycle headlight would you suggest?
