I like to walk at night, especially now that summer is almost here. It’s cooler and more peaceful for both my dog and me. However, walking at night can have its risks because visibility is down. We’ve had a few close calls walking at night because cars can’t see us very well. This is why I’m going to start wearing the Bkin personal safety beacon from Delta Cycle.
The Bkin can help people who are outdoors biking, hiking, walking, running, or doing other outdoor activities and who need the light to help them be seen by others, whether during day or night. In fact, the Bkin allows you to be seen up to 1,000 meters away at nighttime (and it has an amazing 120-degree viewing angle). During the daytime, the light is visible up to 300 meters away. I can tell you, the light is very bright!
Such A Great Little Safety Tool With Features You Can Appreciate
So many times I watch the news and hear about pedestrians or bikers getting hit by cars. It happens a lot—even once is too much. This Bkin wearable safety beacon is one precaution (among many others) people can utilize to help keep themselves safer. It’s a powerful light (even though it’s very light and small in size). You can have it on in pulsing mode or as a constant light. It attaches very easily to things, including clothing, a bike, a bag, a stroller, a pet’s collar, and more.
One feature that is really cool is that it has a built-in USB connector which allows you to easily charge the light. Charge it for 50 minutes and you have up to 20 hours of runtime. So, you don’t have to worry about having to buy those tiny batteries.
You can purchase the Bkin at the company’s website for $14.99 (prices subject to change). It’s also available at discounted prices and in bundles on Indiegogo Marketplace (currently it’s $17 USD + shipping). It comes in the following color combos: lime + grey, black +grey, and black + magenta.
This really is a great, easy tool that can help keep you safe. I know, as a driver, sometimes you don’t see people or animals on the road until the very last seconds, and then, oftentimes, it’s too late to brake. Wearing the Bkin safety light really is a smart idea (I just wish deer, elk, and moose could wear them, too).
