  • Only expensive white LEDs are bright?

    It's cheap, it works, it goes through its proper progression of states, and AAA batteries fit reasonably well (after you crush the spring contacts sufficiently).


    You know how LEDs were once only available in red? There's a reason for that - other colors apparently don't come naturally to them. Previous reviewers have reported this light as intensely blue; I found it to be dimly white. It is substantially dimmer, with freshly charged batteries, than its brother red-LED light is with batteries that were used all week.


    I'm using this as a bike helmet light - sort of a head-taillight - and red would probably have been more appropriate. I was seduced by the novelty of a blue tail light, but I was foolish.


    Bottom line - unless you NEED a light in a color other than red, stick with the red. Even behind a dark lens, the red is brighter.
