Something must have changed since then with a newer or different model. If you don't want it and can't return it, I might be able to buy it from you.
Don't worry, I'll find the use for both units that I got
. One goes on my wife's bikeE and does not need a remote switch. For the other unit I'll figure out something. I actually do like the color temperature of this light (in the main spot). Many other LED lights I've seen produce bluish tint (or just very cold white beam) that makes things look ghostly and unnatural. This one is noticeably warmer and has some very slight green tint which makes grass and foliage look nice at night
