|As Achilles Had His Heel, the P7 Has Velcro|
Many times I've extolled the virtues of the mighty P7 headlight I use on my morning commutes. It is brighter than any light I've seen that is twice the price. What's more, it has outlasted any Cateye light I've had. Still, it does have its own weakness; its Achilles Heel.
The P7's battery is its weakness. Well, not the battery, exactly, but the Velcro that is supposed to keep the battery attached to the frame and hence the light. I have now lost this battery three times and have also doubled back to find it three times. There is something to be said for buckles or snaps. A light whose battery falls off while lit is an obvious event. A light whose battery falls off, randomly, while unlit after dawn is more problematic.
