Review 1 for LED Valve Caps, Red

They work but....

4 out of 6 batteries had corrosion in the packaging. 6 replacement batteries cost $26 @ local Radio Shack. Battery installation diagram on the packaging is tough to decipher, so you've got a 50-50 shot of installing the batteries the wrong direction. If you do the "little beasties" start to generate some heat due to the short-circuit discharge. Hint: install the batteries so that the top of the batteries (side with writing) faces the wheel rim/inflation valve. Screwing the caps onto the wheel are a little tricky, you have to adjust the cap so that they flash brightly, possible they can dimly flash due to a poor fitting. There's a clear white rubber gasket (hard to see if you drop it) that seals the cap from water. The gasket kinda reminds me of the clear/white rubber washers/bands that kids use on braces. Be careful not to over tighten the cap be ause you'll pinch/loop out the gasket & thus defeat the purpose of the water barrier. Once you adjust the caps, they work as advertised. LEDs are not bright enough for daylight -- product is best for low-light conditions (i.e. dusk, dawn, night). I like the fact that the lights continue to flash 5-10 secs after motion stops, e.g. A momentary pause at an intersection. Any bump, not just rolling motion will get ' em flashing again.

Product totally unacceptable

Product was totally unacceptable and non-functional. Button batteries provided with product were corroded inside the package and not visibly apparent until after I got it home from ship to store and opened the package. I have previously purchased a similar product "off-the-shelf" in the store and it worked just fine, being of slightly different configuration and manufacture. All I really need is replacement batteries, also button-style (LR1130) for the original valvestem capa, but they seem to be largely unavailable or highly over-priced. I am completely dissatisfied with this purchase and return cycle.

Performs as described. Only drawback is you can’t shut them off when not in use and they drain the expensive batteries.

Very bright motion activated lights. Haven't installed them yet as it's still light pretty late but will start using them soon enough
