If you feel like your bike light is not lasting as long as it should, the best way to confirm this is to do a run time test.

This test should be done indoors to provide a controlled environment for the test. You will need a timer and a small fan to keep the light cool.

1) Give the light a full charge so that the indicator light is solid green.

2) Place it in front of the fan, start your timer, and turn the light on (single press, first setting).

3) It's not necessary to watch the light the entire time. Check in on it every 15 minutes, then every 10 minutes for the last 1/2 hr.

Please set your light to high when performing this test
