Description

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.

  1. The LEDs aren’t as bright as other tail-lights. But they’re still surprisingly bright for a light at this price point.
  2. 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:

  1. All LEDs on
  2. One chasing LED
  3. All LEDs blink
  4. Two chasing LEDs
  5. Off

I’ve written a bunch in the bicycle gift guide. If you want to know more about good lights for kids bikes, I’ve written about that too in this small bike light guide. I also manufacture the Bike Beam, a color LED light pole for bikes.
