ROUTE7 High Power P7 LED Headlight
Great Light !!!
I have used this light all winter for road cycling, through torrential rain, freezing cold and fog. It is great!!!
It's beam is quite broad.
I usually use it on half power and if a car has it's lights on full, they will dip their lights if I put it on full.
I find it will last easily 2hrs on full. I use it mounted on my helmet so I cannot see the charge indication light at the back. I have another (Hope 1watt led) on my handle bars. I usually run both on half power so I always have know that I have at least 7hrs of good lighting.
The battery back is small and light weight.
For the road, this is all you need.

I've been running this light for quite a few months now (daily commute of 0.5 hours each way).
Battery lasts close to the advertised time for me. The beam doesn't match my main light for distance or intensity at a distance but surpasses my main light for coverage and near field intensity.
As most people mention, the battery bag is pretty flimsy looking and is a little awkward.
I'm not a fan of the connector, it seems to seal well for water resistance but can be a challenge to unplug. In my opinion it is a brute force design to prevent water in the connector. Effective but hardly elegant.
Frankly for the price this light is hard to beat. You can buy almost three for the price of other good lights and three of these would be quite a sight.

surprisingly good for the price
Bought and used it once so far. Switched between all 3 modes and last me total of 4 hours.
the battery indicator is not accurate though from green to blue. hope spare battery pack will be available.
The helmet mount is totally hopeless. keep it in mind if this is what you like doing.

Have used this as a MTB handlebar light. Very well built, a little heavier than other lights. Battery life is... strange. From a full charge and 100% brightness, will drop down to 75% (blue) in 10-15 minutes and to 50% (orange) after another ~15 minutes. From there, battery seems to last a little longer. I'd say total usage time at max brightness is around 2 hours... most likely wouldn't last for 3. Not weather resistant but can handle a few splashes. Decent light for sale price ($70) but should consider spending a little more for a better quality/brand light.

This light for $100 has well exceed expectation! Over the years have spend much more on lights for less value.
Shlghtly heavier than my primapry light but would be perfect for a handle bar set up.

great lighting system
Bought two of these lights & happy i did. Have a road bike not worried about the xtra weight or bulk of the battery packs which are well hidden on the main tube, both lights are on the bars. Burn time is about right for 100% etc. The visibility is awesome I normally use the 30% sufficient w/ two. Flashing system is awesome. Recharge time is accurate. On full beam the lights are v bright. Easy to switch between different beams. Satisfied customer.

Beam puts others to shame. Battery life is about right, lasts me 6-8 hours on flash mode. Great battery life indicator. Only gripe with it if is the battery case build quality. Have been using it 4 hours per week commuting for 3 months, went to take it off for servicing bike and velcro strap just tore off at base. Some gaffer tape and it'll be ok, and no real need to take off anyway, just charge in place.
Excellant light T7.

Light is great, nice balance between spot & wide,,,,, my battery must be a dud because i cant get anything like the run time stated,,, just cant get more than 40 min on high,,, had to make up a replacement battery
its well built, but wish it had a better mounting system, it can move during a rough section of trail.
