BM Lumotec IQ Fly vs Plus ?

Do you find the standlight advantageous? Is it worth the extra money for the IQ Fly Plus as opposed to the IQ Fly?

I have the Plus and like it. It's a pretty small upcharge, so I would get it. OTOH, it wouldn't be a great loss to do without.

I have the plus also. The standlight stays on for a few minutes and is bright enough to be seen . I think is it worth it.

I have older Lumotec front and rear lights with standlight. The standlights are pretty good "be seen" lights, which is all you need when you are standing.

If you don't get the standlight, I'd suggest secondary battery lights to ensure you are seen when stopped at intersections.
