Riding a bike is a fantastic way to explore the world at your own pace, exercise, and reduce pollution! If you’re riding at night, it’s essential to have some lights and the Lil’ Lite: Fun, Smart, Hackable Bike Light is a sure fire way to get noticed – for many reasons! They perform the function of normal bike lights, but the on-board ESP32 adds some great extra features.
This is no ordinary bike light! Sure, it will illuminate at night time – but offers you multiple illumination modes and has the capability to upload your own! It has a built-in accelerometer and light sensor, so it knows when you’re parked up and ready to go, as well as when to let there be light. It can be fitted to most standard seat posts, and has a neat feature to display the remaining battery life each time it turns on.
It runs on a 500 mAh lithium battery which offers 10 hours of illumination before it needs to be recharged, via USB-C. It has a 3D-printed PETG case which houses the inner electronics with a silicone seal to make it water resistant. The Lil’ Lite is sold by NawoTech who are based in the appropriately named Mountain View in California, USA.
