Written by Gary Johnson / Fact checked by Henry Speciale

You’ve just purchased a quality electric bike from Rad Power and now you’re looking to make the most out of your new bike.

Your Rad Power Bike comes with all the functions you’d expect from a standard e-bike, with the addition of having its own headlight and brake light for additional safety for nighttime or dim-condition riding.

Visibility is a key factor in road safety, so it’s going to be important that you know how to turn on Rad Power Bike headlight, so let’s get right to it.

Rad Power Bike Headlight: How to Turn On

Step 1: Turning on your battery


Make sure your battery is appropriately charged before use. Otherwise, your headlight and other electronics for your bike won’t turn on.

Now, make sure your battery is on.

Find the key port by the battery and turn the key position from the Off position to the On position. 

Step 2: Turn on the headlight

Once your battery is on, there are two methods to turn on the headlight on your Rad Power Bike depending on if you have the Standard Display, or the upgraded LCD Display.

  • If your bike has the standard display, click the power button on your control panel to turn on your display, then click the headlight button above to activate the headlight and brake light.


  • If you have the LCD display, first click the Mode button to turn on the display. Once it is on, press both the Up and Mode buttons at the same time to activate the headlight, taillight, and LCD backlight.
