The Mini USB Combo set provides compact front and rear commuter lights in a single package. The front light has two LEDs. Switch it on and it starts off in flashing mode. There’s another flashing mode and a single constant mode too. This hints at the lights’ commuter orientation: the light output isn’t bad for such a small unit, but you wouldn’t want to rely on it on unlit roads. Topeak quotes 60 lumens.

There’s a bit of side visibility due to the shape of the lens and a small hood to reduce the chances of dazzling yourself.
