The winner of our 2016 Best Of Lights is the Ravemen PR1200. It achieved this honor through a combination of quality, value and innovation.
The light is the Ravemen PR1200 which retails for $90. It looks and feels like a quality piece of machinery with two LEDs and an OLED digital display screen. The screen displays run-time in the brightness mode that one is using. So, on a full charge, it can indicate 1.5 hours on full bright all the way to 18 hours for the dimmest setting.
The magic of this light is that it has two distinct lenses for each LED. One LED is very wide and flat, allowing the rider to see the periphery. This light also has a beam with a very distinct cut-off line horizontally, much like car headlamps and bike legal lights sold in Germany. Round beam patterns found in most lights waste a lot of the light output and it blinds or distracts drivers and pedestrians. This makes the Ravemen very safe to use on the street.
Finally, a USB port allows users to charge their devices using the light. It features a 5200mah battery so it’s quite a powerful charger for one’s smartphone. And the light is very flat and compact so it can be carried in the pocket as a handy flashlight and charger.
