What's the battery life like on the Aviator/Afterburner?
The battery life for the Aviator and Afterburner depends primarily on two variables:
1) The brightness of the light you're using (i.e. the Aviator/Afterburner Boost versus the Aviator/Afterburner standard)
2) The brightness setting you're using: the Aviator features four settings (Boost, Steady, Flash and Eco-Flash) while the Afterburner has three (Boost, Flash, Eco-Flash).
3) Most of our customers need to recharge battery every 2 weeks. Although, it will depend on how often you ride at night.
4) Exact specs are below:
Aviator: 2 hours - Steady
6 hours - Flashing/Eco Modes
Afterburner: 6 hours Steady
12 hours Flashing/Eco Modes
Many of our riders grab an extra battery to keep to keep in their backpack while riding, just in case.
