Caution: Lower than standard power output
Like most Shimano products, I'm sure this is reasonably well made. However, note carefully that this hub can only provide 1.5W @ 6V versus the far more common 3.0W @ 6V.
Yes, it should be easier to turn (ie lower rotational resistance) when only providing 50% of standard output. That said, 1.5W should be OK for a simple "notice me" light, although not enough for good illumination on a dark road. Pros:
Lower than standard outputWould Buy Again:
