Rear blinkers

Should have a blinking function also.

Hi Denny


Thank you for your kind review.

Maybe it should have blinking function. Maybe it shouldn't.

Will highlight it to the design team.


But have you looked at the other models that had?

Vido light worked 3 times

Very disappointed with this light, worked 3 times and now wont charge, just shows the wee charging light when try to switch on and same when charging, no use. Will try take back asap but live 200 miles form nearest store. This is not on Decatlon 3rd item in 12 months that has been substandard, not what they used to be...

Thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry to read that they are no longer functioning.
I will be sure to forward your comments and findings on to the team in charge of lights at Decathlon,

doesnt charge after using once int he rain.

I cannot get it to charge, it just flashes a red light at the on/off button. Ive tried to leave it for a while to see if it needed drying, but that doesn't work.

It seems that your lights are faulty. Please return them to us for a refund or an exchange. This review will be picked up by the lights design team at Decathlon.

Great little light

Simple and effective. Used it in horrible rain and so far so good.

Beware: Strap very unreliable

I bought one of these but, the strap broke and the lamp fell off. The store replaced it with a new one. The new lamp also fell off my bike and I could not find it this time. My money and time have been wasted on this poor quality product. I will be careful to choose a product to buy from Decathlon next time because while their customer service is very good, product quality seems to be a hit-and-miss.

Small blinking status light

The small status light (under the on/off button) is blinking red while the battery is charging via the USB cable. What does this mean? That the battery is nearing the end of its life? I haven't charged it 500 times yet. I tried to find the instruction but couldn't find the answer. Thank you for your help.

Good value

Good value for money

Failed after a year

One of the better 'cheap' rear lights I've had. Still, it doesn't seem to be designed to cope with water or vibration in the longer term.

Thank you for your feedback regarding this rear light. If it is faulty and within the 2yr warranty period, please return it to us for an exchange with your receipt.

Wont recharge, waste of money

I bought many lights from Decathlon including this one, and non recharges even I returned one of the earlier lights even that wont recharge, i though I'm recharging in the wrong way but unbelievable how are all lights faulty from Decathlon I cant fathom. Utterly disappointed with these products

Hi Khalid, 

Thank you so much for your feedback. We value your feedback dearly and hope we can find a positive
solution together. 

Could you please bring in the light down to Bedok Store and approach me directly? I will have a look at it
and help you do the refund/exchange and hopefully you can allow me to recommend you the better one :)

Thank you so much and my name is Bo from BTWIN Bedok Store, see you very soon!

How do I know its recharging?

When I plug it into the computer, how do I know it is recharging? Should there be an indicator, (e.g.) a light flashing to show it is charging or a light to show it's finished charging?

doesn't blink

The light is nice, but for unknown reason there is no blinking mode. That would make you more visible and it would also significantly increase the battery life range. It's a shame because mechanically it's very good.

Thank you for your comments regarding the light. Yes, you are correct in saying that this light does not blink. This is an approved light for use with pedal cycles as some countries do not allow flashing lights and lenses also have to be of a certain quality. The legislation in the UK is also quite sketchy but a constant front white/rear red light is considered the safest option. Should you require a flashing rear light, then this model for £9.99 is excellent as it provides a flashing/constant mode for either the front or the rear, very versatile: https://www.decathlon.co.uk/vioo-320-usb-dual-bike-light-black-id_8327535.html

Doesn't Flash

As a driver and cyclist I can say that a flashing rear light is 10X better than one that doesn't flash. Besides that well made and durable, easy charging and removal.

Luz

Luz fija no intermitente solo una posición para ir en bici mejor que sea intermitente para que te vean, pero hace una luz roja espectacular que te ven eso claro pero falta posiciones como luz intermitente. O otras...!
