If you’ve stumbled on my site wondering if it’s for real and if you can get a solar bike light here, it is, and you can. I’m still in ‘test’ mode but have been happy overall with the quality of these lights. I’ve had one on my bike since summer 2012. It’s been exposed to rain but continues to hold a charge and function well. I’ve only noticed that after a rain I sometimes have to toggle the on/off switch numerous times before it makes a connection.
I’m an avid bicycle rider and it bothered me that I couldn’t find a solar powered bike light. When I was able to acquire the SolarBikeLights.com domain I decided I would try to do this myself.
It’s taken a lot longer than I would have thought- to actually have some lights for sale on the site. The problem has been that most manufacturers require you to order a minimum of 1000 pieces! Finally I found a Chinese manufacturer who would sell me a sample order.
I’m in test mode and only have 20 lights in a variety of colors. If you want one they are $20 which includes USPS shipping IN THE U.S. ONLY. Email me john [at] solarbikelights.com and I’ll send you my paypal address once we determine which color light you want.
