Extremely bright for it's size/weight. Additionally, ShredLights mounts are compatible across the product line making this light very versatile; it can be mounted on a skateboard using a truck-mounted bracket, bar mount, magnetic mount, GoPro style mount, adhesive mount, velcro mount, even a clip mount. I got mine for a helmet and use a velcro mount because it's low profile. I also like that ShredLights is using a modern USB-C charge port across its entire line, including the SL-1000.
Quality is that of high end gun lights. Brightness is amazing can’t wait to try it with the diffuser.
Used my light at work one day. (Perfect little pocket light)
But I dropped it.. the plastic broke.
Sooo I had to sneak borrow my sons light.. annnd I dropped his a month later.
Broke at the same spot.
The SL-1000's are a very sturdy light and should not break easily. Please email us this info with pictures of both lights and we would be happy to help.

Got this light about a year ago, and been loving it. I've had it mounted to my longboard using the original metal mounts but recently got the new magnetic mounts for convenience. Due to a lack of places to mount the sticky base, I wound up doing an underboard mount, which fit well, and though the sticky baseplate is solid, the magnetic mount wasnt quite strong enough to hold during a certain bump toward the end of my ride, though it did hold up for a while. I ran over my sl1000 at about 20mph with my board and it got scraped up bad, to the point where any other light would have been demolished, but this beast is 100% fine, functionality wise, although the charging cover did tear. ShredLights even sent me a new mag mount free of charge for my inconvenience!! 10/10 would recommend this light, but if you get the magnetic mount, would recommend a top mount solution by using a rectangular anti sink plate to mount the sticky baseplate. Also probably good to know its a true 1000 lumens, and the battery lasts hours on a single charge at high brightness. Awesome purchase overall and very happy with ShredLights.
I’ve hade this torch for about a year now, this light is awesome I use it for boarding at night as well as emergency service work and security. It’s bright and has multi modes small and compact which makes it extremely comfortable to use for emergency and security operations I highly recommend this light.
This light is awesome it’s super bright and easy to use
I got this light for night riding on my onewheel. This light is bright, not to heavy for a helmet either, I really don’t notice it while riding. With the light I actually enjoy riding at night instead of dreading it.
I have 4 sl1000, 2SLFX, and too many of the original lights to count. I just had my first issue. My new slfx broke the charger port. A email got me a polite replacement and promptly. Can you tell other companies how this is great for business?
If I could say anything it would be so t waste money or time on anything else just buy shred lights and be noticed at night shredding. And the day time. Day time alone with having my lights on makes me seen way sooner than with out.
I also have an action clip on my backpack that lights up the famous Milton the monkey. He feels safer and lives being flashy.
