it has worked perfectly well for the whole season without any issue. At this point, im satisfied of what i got for the price, i was also trying to see if i'd like cyclocommuting, so now that the trial period is over, new/additional things i buy for cyclocommuting might get more upfront funding if necessary and no cheaper alternative can be found to be durable enough.
Or say, for my action cam, i went with Xiaomi yi... cause after reading the reviews and seeing footage and looking through forums (like drone racing forums as an example) i found out that i didn't need to spend 5x the money on the action cam for my purpose.
So in the end, i guess if you buy relatively cheap, you have to research thoroughly, which is the "cost" of buying cheap. Obviously more costly/reputable brand items still need research but usually will be more trustworthy.
