Love It
I found a need for a light like this when we would be camping and couldn't see where the dog was. We would end up calling for her when she was just laying down nicely. I had a cheap keychain light we used for a while that was great, but too big for a collar. When I found out there was one made for her collar, I immediately got one. So far this has worked great. We use it outdoors at night and I even started using it on runs in the evening so cars can see us. It actually lights up the area around us pretty well. My only suggestion is to go with a colored one since it is pretty bright. I went with green so it doesn't bother the dog as much.

Great concept, not perfect yet
I have tried all kinds of collar lights, and none have really stood up to the test. This admittedly is the best so far, but here are my issues:
1) when my dogs wrestle, one of them always ends up biting off the cover off of the other dog's light (so far, we have been lucky and I have noticed right away and have to lost one).
2) they are hard to turn on and (especially) off (but at least the dogs aren't turning them on and off when they wrestle, which was the major issue with other lights). I use a prong from a collar clasp to turn them off. You really can't do it with your fingers (at least I can't)
3) the carabiner broke after a week of use. It made the light hang down a little too far anyway, and my puppy just bit at it (although with the light swinging on the carabiner, I found it to be more visible than my other dog's which is attached to his collar strap). My puppy bit the cover off of her own a couple of times and nearly swallowed it. But again, each time I managed to rescue the cover and the batteries. My older dog wears it on the Sportdog collar strap. This works better, but on a lab with lots of skin around his neck, it makes the light a little less visible. I really need two for his collar. It is very bright, but from the opposite side, I can't always see it. Now that I am training the puppy on the Sportdog collar, I will attach hers to that...but again, will probably need to buy another for her.
The light is very bright. I have a blue one and a white one, and they are blinding when you look right at them (but don't expect them to act like a flashlight). It's hard to explain why it isn't always really visible when directed away from you. It might just be the loose neck skin of my lab.
In all, it's the best solution I have found for our nighttime walks in the woods/fields. But it still isn't perfect for my needs. Maybe my expectations are a bit high...but at $15 each, I would love to not have to purchase two for each collar.

Good Product, but has issues
I purchased this product last year for by lab/golden cross. I loved how bright it was and I am able to track my dog better in dusk. The carabiner clip that came with the light was not sturdy enough at all, only lasted one or two walks.
I had difficulty with the on/off switch at first as well, so when it started shutting off by itself, I became perplexed and came to this site looking for answers.

On our walk last night, I turned it on 3 different times and finally just gave up and left it off. When I got home, I turned it on and it stayed on for several minutes and did not turn off. The same thing happened tonight, but we stayed in the yard, so when it turned itself off, I left it. When we were done playing, I tested in the house again, and it worked fine.

Wondering if the product is sensitive to cold??

SPORTDOG RESPONSE

Thank you for sharing your feedback on the SportDOG Locator Beacon. We are glad to know that your pup is easy to see when the beacon is bright. It is possible that the batteries are low, the battery tab inside the housing needs to be lifted a bit to give it some spring, or that it simply needs to be replaced. Please also know that any and all batteries are somewhat affected by extreme temperatures. For troubleshooting and assistance on your beacon, please give us a call at 1-800-732-0144.
