Intro... Over the past several months, I have gone through bicycle tail lights, LED strip lights, and flashlights -- trying to figure out what the most convenient, yet effective safety light would be for me to carry on my person during evening/night rides. The bicycle tail lights were cumbersome and limited in the way I could mount them to myself or my bag. LED strip lights required me to carry an additional battery pack, and fiddling with settings that were not easy or quick to navigate. Flashlights were difficult to mount, and had a bad throw pattern for people following me. There were seemingly no *great* solutions for personal safety lights, that would give ample warning to those behind me that there is someone on the road, without blinding them out, or being a burden for me to use. Then I found the Guardian Angels Devices! I had been looking at Guardian Angel Devices for quite a while, however I never bit the bullet because I was skeptical about spending $100 on a safety light. Well, I purchased a hard shell back protecting backpack, the Point65 Boblbee 25L backpack, and I decided to deck it out with something that wasn't as cheesy as just running LED strips on the outside of that beautiful shell. I wanted something streamlined. Something highly visible from both sides, and behind me, easy to turn on and cycle through the different modes. Something that had an internal battery with a high runtime, and has a solid build construction. Lastly, I wanted something that I could easily swap from my backpack, to my shirt, pants, the EUC itself, etc. (They have great mounting options, and it's all based around super-strong neodymium magnets.) The Guardian Angel Elite ticked all of those boxes. So, I went ahead and placed the order. You'll find the review at the bottom of this post. How to Purchase...

Hi I like that You can adjust the colours of the light of the Mini plus in the app, but it is missing important (country specific) "safety" features in my opinion. I would like to be able to set the colours as below, or even better user adjustable colour, but those "specific options" should be there: Rear lights: - "red mild glow" when riding straight forward (like a rear light) - "red strong light" when braking (like a cars brake light) - "White strong light" when reversing (like a car reverse light) instead of red like today. - Flashing orange on "one side" whre You are turning (instead of flashing yellowish like today) and the other side according to above. Example; if reversing and turning left (going backward) at the same time. Left light = flashing orange & Right light = solid white. Wheel lights: - "Orange glow" (like a bike wheel reflexes) or "off" (like a car) when riding straight - Flashing orange when turning (Though it seems like wheel lights are fixed to blue - i have not found a way to change it at least, so "off" is probably the better option) Full example: Going forward turning right would show: - Right wheel and right rear light flashing orange - Left wheel light off (or solid orange) and left rear light "mild red glow" This would make lights follow the "rules for a bike" here in Sweden and the turn indicators of a car. The Ninebot mini Plus is classed like a bicycle here (since its not faster than 20km/h). It would be super neat to have signal indicators that gave me a safer ride and less risk for comments from the Pohlice (I dont care about "flashy, pulsy, wawy stuff" (Im to old i guess)) Anyway Xiaomi seems to be "all about safety" (to ridiculous level) when You consider the high speed LOUD ANNOYING warning beep + tilt back like crazy It should be possible to turn the sound off or I will cut the wires to the speaker LOL Did I miss soemthing in the app - i have played around with light but not found a way to do above Boogie
