Planet Bike Superflash Clone – 0.5W 2-Mode 1 + 2 LED Red Light Bike Bicycle Tail Lamp (2 x AAA) Reviews

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

Pros:
These lights are clones of the venerable Planet Bike Superflash, and that's a very good thing. They have a very bright, 1/2 watt led with supplemental, smaller leds that have an erratic and very visible flash pattern. I don't know if there is a more visible rear light out there.
Cons:
The mounting hardware isn't great, but it's more than sufficient. If you need anything more than a pocket clip, or a seatpost mount, you're on your own.
Other:
A wider range of mounting mechanisms would be cool, but for this fantastic price I won't complain.
Bottomline:
Every bike should have at least one of these, and if you're serious about night time visibility, two or more. Supplement one of these with a few strips of reflective tape, and you should be visible in traffic.
