Mine just arrived. Plug is indeed somewhat hard to installed. This is because you press the o-ring, which is on the plug, between de housing and the plug. Once properly inserted it needs some force to be removed.

Ok, couldn't get some good photos but man.. Wauw! I like it :D Beam/hotspot is spread-out evenly and gives a wide view in front. Lowest mode is enough in the city where streetlights are present. When you enter a darker spot you bump it up to 200 lumens. Have cycled for about 20 minutes and changed between 100 and 200 lumens. No car-drivers flashed at me, meaning that I'm blinding them. Of course you must aim the beam towards the ground and max 5-6mtrs in front of your bike. And when it really gets dark or to signal pedestrians, 1800 it just a press/click away :D The pedestrians I passed-by really looked at me with a face of "dude.. You have light and it's bright". (So many people here who don't have light on their bike)
Small downside: the velcro-strap for the remote pressure switch is to long. So long that I can't attach it on my handle-bar. It does fit onto the handles.

KJ2, thanks for the information. I have one incoming (now is stopped in customs) and reassures me to know that the plug can't be easily removed from the base. Greetings :thanks:

The remote pressure switch-strap has a rubberized-part which is ticker, so it can't loop through.

This is the light I'm looking at for my night time winter MTB adventures. Subwoofer, I'm looking forward to the review, especially interested in build quality for off roading as well as run time tests in typical British cold, wet and windy weather (sorry!). Love the personalised edition!
