In this video I test the Light And Motion Urban 500 bike light, and the Zebralight SC62w flashlight.
First up, the Light And Motion Urban 500 (Urban 2.0 series Blue Ribbon) bike light emits 500 lumems of brightness for about 45 minutes then slowly steps down to about 400 lumens for another 45 minutes before it burns out. It has three brightness modes plus one flashing mode.
The Light And Motion Urban 500 has a basic circular beam pattern that is very uniform and the light burns cool white in color.
The LIght And Motion Urban 500 is USB rechargeable and the battery is internal and cannot be replaced when the light goes out, so you need to find another charging port.
The Light And Motion Urban 500 uses a flex mount similar to that used by the Contour action camera. This mounit is very veretile and secure. I expect the mount will help dampen vibrations and noises from the road as well as prevent it from slipping.
The LIght And Motion Urban 500 has two amber side lights that provide some side visibility normally never found on a light. They are nice and not too bright, although your hands may block the light and it could be distracting on dark trails.
The LIght And Motion also has a swivel base that seems solid and allow you to turn the light 360 degrees so you can point it while mounted on the bike.
Second, the Zebralight SC62w flashlight emits 900 lumens of brightness but this quickly drops to about 800 lumens and then slowly continues to step down to about 700 lumens before it burns out after 90 minutes. The light has several modes including several flashing modes.
The Zebralight SC62w flashlight. It also has a circular beam pattern but with a hotspot in the middle. The light burns neutral white in color.
I use the Zebralight SC62w with a cheap flashlight bike mount that I simply keep closed tight enough to wedge it in place to mount it, and pop it out to remove it.
The Zebralight SC62w uses one 18650 battery and you can just swap it out with another whenever the light goes too dim.
