This is a wind-up, right?
Er, yes actually. This nifty little LED light from Wiggle is powered by winding it up – one minute winding gives you up to 35 minutes power. And if you fancy giving your winding arm a rest, it comes with a mains charger and a charger that you can pop in the cigarette lighter of your car.
One feature we’d like to have seen on this light is a side lens – to increase your visibility to other vehicles coming side-on.
We’re going to be running one of these on one of our commuting bikes and seeing how it copes with the dark ride to and from work that we are now getting used to on these cold, wet winter morns.
The light operates in both flashing and continuous modes, comes with a universal mounting bracket and the rubber grips on the side of the light are a nice touch, too.
We’ll let you know how we get on with the light. Until then, here are some more pics…

It’s easy to get a grip…
