Review: Night Provision™ BX-550 USB Rechargeable USB Bicycle Headlight

This review is for the Night Provision™ BX-550 USB Rechargeable USB Bicycle Headlight.  This is actually my second Night Provision headlight, I already own the BX-960 which I love.  I wanted a second headlight for another bike, but I didn’t feel I needed the full 960 lumens so I went with a less expensive model this time.  Glad I did.  The 550 in many ways is even better than the more expensive 960.  The one click mounting was awesome (way better than screwing it tight) and made installation literally 5 seconds.  That means it’s easier to add and take off any bike.  I also like that clicking the power button cycles through the various light modes, instead of having to press and hold the button like I have to do on the 960.   This headlight obviously isn’t as bright as my other headlight, but I think it works fine for riding around town.  The headlight is slightly larger and a little clunkier than the 960, but to save $20 I’m o.k. with that.  All-in-all this is a great headlight.
