Pros: Just about everything

Cons: Not much

Recommendation: This is a fantastic light. I had a L&M light from about 5 years ago. This battery lasts much longer and is lighter/smaller; I could see myself putting this in my jersey pocket where as I wouldn't do that for my previous light. The low setting is fine for moderate to smooth road surfaces; I use medium or high for gravel roads on my cross bike. It is probably just barely adequate as a nighttime trail light mounted on the helmet but I haven't tested this. The battery life is phenomenal and works as advertised. I really can't say anything bad about this light. Its a bit pricey, but does the job and is worth the money for anyone like me who has a job, a family and has to train in the wee hours of the morning.

Pros: Lightweight, and compact. Great beam pattern, perfect for a helmet mount.

Cons: None

Recommendation: Perfect light for the money. It mounts easily and securely as well as it provides alot of light output for such a small unit. With a long burn time of 5h+ this unit promises to stay on longer than you.

Pros: Super light weight package, solid craftsmanship, and long battery cord.

Cons: Not much, maybe a different color.

Recommendation: Go get it, can't beat 5 hr run time!

Pros: Super bright, lightweight, and a great value. Simple operation and convenient mounting options.

Cons: No intensity settings or way to adjust beam pattern.

Recommendation: This is a great light for getting into night riding for the first time. If this is your primary night riding light I recommend mounting the Stella to your helmet rather than your handlebars since the beam pattern is a little narrow. Buy two of these - one for your helmet, one for your bars- and you'll be nearly perfect (plus two of these still cost half what ONE Seca costs). Battery life is good enough for most rides (2 hours).
