A good, inexpensive light to carry around for “just in case” situations.
This is far from one of the best tail-lights out there, but it’s a great value.
This tail light has 5 LEDs and a couple of different blink patterns for dynamic visibility. It’s got a battery that you can charge via USB (cable include) and looks like it lives up to its waterproof rating so far in our testing.
They’re super-easy to use and install/charge.
The light is nice for occasional riding.
For something that’s a little brighter, I recommend this LED bike light set.
Why is it so cheap?
A couple of things separate this light from nicer models.
- The LEDs aren’t as bright as other tail-lights. But they’re still surprisingly bright for a light at this price point.
- The battery is smaller. But since the LEDs aren’t as bright and don’t use as much power as expensive models, a bigger battery isn’t really necessary. They should last for about 12 hours on the chasing power setting according to the manufacturer.
Tail light patterns:
You press the power button to cycle between patterns (and to turn the light off):
This is what happens when you press the power button:
- All LEDs on
- One chasing LED
- All LEDs blink
- Two chasing LEDs
