Why do I need an LED light up backpack?

From September, here in the UK the nights draw in and you'll be walking home in the dark. The prime time for accidents involving pedestrians is 3-6pm, just when most of us are walking home. You might think that living in a well lit residential area would make you safer than living in a small village with poor lighting. But 70% of pedestrian fatalities happen in urban areas. A backpack with integral lights is much more convenient than fiddling about with backpack lights when it's cold and dark!

How do I do turn the LED lights on?

We designed the backpacks to make it really easy to turn the lights on. Simply put the backpack on your back and run your hands down to the bottom of the straps to where they join the base of the bag. The switches are inside the small triangular pocket.

Each switch controls a different set of lights. Press once for fast flash, press again for slow flash and press again for always on. To turn them off just press again.

If you want to see it in action, watch Anna's 'how to' video on our YouTube channel.

Can I change the batteries in the LEDs?

Yes. The switch pocket is velcroed together at the top. Gently peel it apart and you'll see the switch itself. To replace the battery, carefully prise the plastic front off and change the batteries over. Take care to slide the wires into the slot at the top of the cover so they don't get trapped as you firmly press the cover back into place.

Watch our short 'How to Change the Batteries' video on our YouTube channel to see how to do it.

Do the LED lights have different settings?

Yes! There are 4 different settings. Press once for fast flash, press again for slow flash and press again for always on. To turn them off just press again.
