Mine have already been through three weeks of commuting use; they've been great for that. Got two on the front and they make for a great beam if you aim one slightly higher than the other.

In fact, drivers aren't taking too kindly to my new illumination even though I have aimed them downwards. Means that they can't pull out on me because they think it is something bigger coming down the road at them :lol:

Anything that gets you noticed at night has to be a good thing.
