Luna Fire 250 RX

What's up everybody? Ben here with my review of the Nathan Luna Fire 250 RX. That's a pretty long name for a small light so I will just call it the Luna Fire from here on out. So I run 90% of my runs before the sun comes up so I have to have some sort of light with me. For years I've been using headlamps and going through loads of batteries, so I was excited to try out the Luna Fire. I do have some issues, but they are minor and easily fixed.

The Luna Fire is a USB rechargeable clip on light that is super simple to use. Just hold down the power button for about 5 seconds and the light is on. You can press the button and change the brightness, and it gets plenty bright, or double press to start a blinking light. To cut it off simply hold the button for 5 seconds. 
The clip will adjust out for 2 clicks so you can angle the beam where it needs to be. When I used it on my chest, I would give it one click so it pointed down slightly in front of me. On my waist, I would leave the clip closed. 

Like I said before the light is plenty bright. I could leave it one the first setting and see fine. The battery life was great. I charged the light and got 3 runs of almost an hour each over a 2 week period. I feel that's really good for a rechargeable light.

My main problem is with the strap. It allows the light to bounce to much for my taste, whether on my waist or chest. I also learned that I do not like things on my chest like this, but around my waist, I clipped it to my running belt and it worked like a charm. The running belt is a thicker strap and seems to work better. 

Well, thanks for reading and if you want to get your own Luna Fire head over to NATHAN and pick one up. They also make pretty good water bottles for runners. Use code NATHANBIB20 for 20% off your purchase for a limited time.
