    I didn't even get a recall letter or email. I already bought a new light, I don't have time to wait 2 years for my 80 dollar China light to get warrantied. So I bought another China light to replace it with. I don't even really expect or care that my old light's batteries failed after about a year of use. No other manufacturer would warranty batteries nearly a year after purchase especially on such a cheapo light.

    Thx Rusta - my biggest problem is I just cannot afford to pay $ for new batteries and so I wait it out. Some people have more liquid $ to spend on this sport. I don't. Times are hard and harder for others -and it is what it is.

    The upside of not having much liquid is that I've had to learn to fix and maintain my bike more than I thought I ever would.

    I also bought a new MS light. I still have the old one, carry it sometimes as a backup on longer rides. IMHO they are well worth the $.

    Here is an expensive but long term solution. Buy a Niterider 750 at REI. Its expensive but you can return it whenever for whatever reason and get a replacement. FOREVER.

    Sucks to spend the extra money but its great that the investment won't be wasted.

    Maybe I'm mistaken as to which light this thread is about? It wasn't a $25 light. See:

    I was refering to the comment that he couldn't afford the pay $25 to expedite getting a new battery through the upgrade geoman offered. I just don't buy it. $25? Thats less than a tank of gas.

    There was a "problem" with my recall form and the third party never bothered to follow up.

    After months and months, I received batteries that can't be unplugged from and replugged into the light head without resetting them with the charger.

    Regarding the post that these are considered disposable batteries - I never considered GeomanGear Lights to be disposable. I spent in the neighborhood of $250-$300-ish on mine. Hmmmmm...

    I got the 808s and they were $80 a piece. Less than 1/2 of big names so while I wouldn't say disposable they aren't exactly expensive.

    My experience with Geomangear is that they do NOT suck and that they actually rule.

    Here's an ancient chinese proverb I've just invented:
    One man's suck is another man's rule.

    I always used to suck my 1ft rule In maths class.... Does that count?

    Yeah, I figured every one needs a good laugh once and in while. Hopefully he has a sense of humor.

    He did deserve the poke though...

    Ha, just came across this thread and read it beginning to end (20 minutes of my life I will never get back). Anyway, it is obvious that zen and cranky are the same poser...err poster. Besides the apprarent slip up mentioned above, the posts share similar linguistic trends, and the seem to like to post two to three consecutive posts at a time. Funny stuff.

    I purchased 3 systems from GeoMan Gear and only warrantied 1 battery. It has been over a year and nothing but run around. I disposed a working battery and sent that form and still no battery. I belong to the "GEOMAN SUCKS" fanclub. Yes I purchased a ebay replacement battery. So I feel the $25 I spent to replace my battery is my fee to say "GEOMAN SUCKS". OK were even now!
