Pedalite says:"A unique and innovative solar powered lighting system for backpacks, rucksacks and other bags worn over the shoulders. The lighting ensures walkers, runners, horse-riders and cyclists are seen from all directions, from up to 1Km away."

In-use Test:

I charged the Baglite from Pedalite up initially by simply leaving it on the office window-sill on a pretty dull day where it seemed to charge fully in about 8 hours. The energy harvesting technology that is used in the Baglite (and its sister product - the Anklelite) can work with either natural or artificial light so the cloudy conditions didn't appear to affect it undully.

After that I've used it on a few different backpacks and it's worked really well. When it's switched 'on', and it can access a light source, it's always replenishing its energy store so I've not had to worry about re-charging it since then. On closer inspection, it's apparent that the lenses are designed with a serious of grooves, frosting and strirations which are what makes the energy capture process so efficient.

The light shines out well from a variety of angles and it's easy to switch between the steady and flashing modes. I was able to get at the contents of the back pack whilst the harness was on albeit with a little re-adjustment. Yes - it adds a little bit of weight - but on balance, I'd rather be visible to other road users.

Buying Advice:

A very neat and innovative way to reduce the risks associated with walking in reduced daylight or darkness - and without any need for batteries. This is a really useful walking accessory that should appeal to both the safety conscious and the environmentally aware. No batteries and even the packaging is re-cycled cardboard!
