One of the best tail light on this site – 3W 2-Mode 1 + 2 LED Red Light Bike Bicycle Tail Lamp (2 x AAA) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Good build quality: water resistant, solid housing, good "strong" mounting/clip system. The illumination is not as bright as more expesive lights, but enough for use in the dark (as opposed to daytime) and acceptably visible from the sides!
Cons:
Unlike the description, this light contains 4 LEDS. 2 lo-power leds at the bottom, and 2 higher-power leds behind the optic lens. This results in a figure 8 sort of beam. The optic lens is pretty bad in itself, which results in a much worse beam. The strobe mode is very fast and could have been a couple hertz slower.
Other:
Bottomline:
Instead of replacing my PB superflash after I lost it, and my PDW radbot 1000 after it died because I used it in snow and rain. If this one dies, I'll just buy another one for 20% of the price of the big brands and I will be very satisfied again.
