My brother just want a Flashlight so that he is not so afraid on the mount. after searching, I find one very functional for him, because it integrates Mp3 player, flashlight torch, alarm whistle, memory disk and external power supply all together. Furthermore, it has a user-friendly bicycle clip. so it is fit for the mountain bike. here are the photos:

but do you think it is a little expensive?I want to buy it as his birthday gift.

This looks like one of those items that is built cheap and will work for about a week before something breaks.


There are pretty decent headlights out there for this price. Cateye Single Shot is one. Lowe's has an LED flashlight, about 20 bucks, that uses a very bright single LED (a "Cree"). Much brighter than most LEDs. If you want to know more, I'll go find the web page that I discovered them through, and I'll post that link.

I am usually suspicious when anything tries to do too many things. Just like people, when something tries to be everything, they aren't very good at any one thing.

the reason why i want to buy a Flashlight for my brother:
1、He really needs it
2、my friend has bought from Tinydeal, and he says the quality is really good for the low price. he gives me a 5% off coupon code:7517a07a96
it is available for everybody,so I want to use it for buying
