I often ride in town, and the light output is really bright, making me feel a lot safer when the roads are busy. I haven't used it for long enough to realistically assess the battery life, but from the stats, it appears that the battery life is pretty long. I like that it has a USB recharger.
I had a little bit of trouble finding a place to put this on my frame. With my handlebar wrap, it didn't work on the handle bars, and I wanted to be able to reach it while riding so opted against the front fork. I ended up using two of the rubber bands to put it smack-dab over the logo on the front of my frame (sorry, Specialized).
CatEye Rapid X2 Front TL-LD710-F
Twice the brightness; twice the safety.
The USB-rechargeable Rapid X2 takes everything you love about the Rapid X and doubles it. Surface-emitting LED strips wrapped in CatEye lens technology now pump out 100 lumens up front and 50 lumens in the rear for unparalleled safety, day or night. The compact, lightweight body securely mounts almost anywhere, including round and aero seatposts, seatstays, handlebars and forks. For ultimate versatility, the optional Spacer X allows the Rapid X2 to mount to our standard FlexTightTMTM bracket, rear rack bracket, saddle rail mount, clothing clip and Fiziksaddle bracket. 6 modes allow you to choose the light pattern best suited for your riding environment, superior side visibility means they'll see you coming from any angle and Battery Auto Save feature ensures you'll never get left in the dark.
