A small, lightweight with a great price tag and impressive glow is how we would some up this rear light in a few simple words. But at AATR we like go a little further than a few simple words. Read our full Moon Crescent rear light review.
Weighing in at a tiny 20g, the Moon Crescent R rear light produces a pretty bright glow for one so small. It’s not just its weight that is impressively small, the water resistant plastic casing measures 70 x 19.5mm and is just 12.4mm thick. Housed inside is lithium rechargeable battery. This powers 15 super-bright, micro LED’s to a maximum of 25 lumens. The Crescent rear light comes complete with a rubber strapped, quick release mount which conveniently adjusts between 22 and 31.8mm to accommodate most seat posts. This is a strong fastening an seems to hold firm. The quick release connection allows connection vertically or horizontally. The rear light has 3 steady modes which offer Standard, High and the aptly named Over drive. However the mode you choose will
significantly alter the run-time.
Rechargeable Rear Light
lithium polymer rechargeable battery, when plugged into a computer has a charge time a little over 2 hours. This can be faster if you charge the LED light via a wall charger. Whilst USB rechargeable lights are convenient, you do need to remember to charge them. There is blue LED under the rubber on/off button to warn when the battery is low. As we stated earlier in the review, the 3 modes offer varying run-times which we have demonstrated in the smart little table below.

The main purpose for buying a rear bike light is to make sure you can be seen, especially if you are commuting. The Moon Crescent Rear LED light offers excellent 180° visibility, especially from behind.
Moon Crescent rear light review conclusion
Having used and tested this light for a couple of months now, our Moon’s Crescent rear light review found it to be an excellent little product that we really like. Its 15 LED’s and 180° visibility offer a powerful red glow, especially in its Over drive mode. However, it is let down by its limited run-time making it more suited for commuting or short club/weekend rides. It also works as very good back up or auxiliary light. Whilst remembering to charge it can be a pain, it’s not a big issue. With its universal micro USB connection, you will more than likely have a cable that fie to hand. All in all, a great light that looks fantastic and does its job well.
