The ultra-compact, vertical design is weatherproof, lightweight, and durable. An integrated clip mount is included, as well as bike mounts to fit on your seatpost, rack, or seatstays, making this light as vertsatile as it is bright.

The Planet Bike Blinky Superflash Tail Light is by far the brightest, most visible light on the market. Both the red/white back and the more stealthy clear/black back are equally bright, helping any cyclist stay safe both at night and during the day! Great for rainy and foggy days, too, when visibility is crucial. Mountable to seat-stays and/or seatpost, this light is easy to take on and off. Also clips to backpacks and messenger bags. I keep 3 around - one for my bike, one for my bag, and one for any friend who doesn't happen to have a light with them.

I ordered 4 of the Planet Bike Superflash Tail lights. I have mounted two on each of my two bikes--one facing to the front and one to the rear. These little lights attached very easily (took just a screwdriver and about 60 secs). I attached one to the front fork and one to the rear stay. If you'd like to attach them to other members of your bike--the lights come with two sets of plastic attachment gear to accommodate nearly all bike frames. The lights are very easy to turn on and off (just a easy push of a button). And when they are on--WOW--they are bright and pulsating. I want to be seen by motorists--and these lights make it so I cannot be missed. I recommend these hot little dudes without reservation. If I had more bike--I'd buy more Planet Bike Blinky Tail Lights.

I use this for my bike ride along the ocean in Florida where people are distracted by the ocean, people on the sidewalk, etc. This light gets the driver's attention and provides for a safer ride.

It's a great little light. it is off the charts bright. Only regret is the battery is not rechargeable. Not a big deal since I have not had to replace the battery yet. Seems like the AA batteries last a while.

This is an exceptionally bright tail light. I have one mounted on my commuter bike and always feel confident that I am seen by cars behind me. I bought one after being amazed by a fellow rider's light one day.

Performance matches other similar but more expensive products. Default pattern is catchy - ascending red blinks capped by a white POP from the top flasher. I've had riders tell me they couldn't ride a pace line behind me because my tail light was too bright. This is a good problem to have IMO. Exactly what you want in dark, foggy or rainy situations.

RAAM (Race Across America) Solo, I used two of these lights on my rear stays for safety, the best rear light regardless of price, meaning I have tried lights that cost hundreds of dollars and this light is MORE effective than anything I have tried. This light has kept me safe in daytime, bright sun, nights when it was foggy in Alaska or tremendous rains in Illinois during RAAM. Manufacturer Customer service is excellent.

I swear by this light and recommend it to EVERYONE and should be on during the day, especially with the increased traffic on the roads.

Stay safe, Doug Levy completed Solo RAAM in 11 days

I wish they made a front version
rating

I use this light on my road bike and it has held up well and seems highly visible. I also ride paved trails a lot. These trails are heavily shaded and oncoming bikes are an issue, especially due to riders often riding two abreast and talking (distracted cyclists). A front blinky is more important than a rear blinky in this situation. The quality, visibility and battery endurance of this light with a white flash would be welcome. I'm not crazy about my Cateye front blinky and I prefer AAA or AA powered lights to the USB chargeable lights which seem more common. It's hard to find a USB charging source on a bike ride but a convenience , hardware or drug store selling batteries is much more readily available

Best battery powered tail light

We sell more of these tail lights than all the others put together. And for good reason. This light is not only very bright, but the flash pattern and white LED with lens make it very easy to see from a considerable distance. If you don't want to spring for the Dinotte Tail Light, this Planet Bike Blinky is the one to get.

The light is fairly light and mounts easily on a seat tube. The AAA batteries last a surprisingly long time. In my experience, it stands up well to weather although we have had a few customers report problems with leakage but this is out of many hundreds of customers.

Strongly recommended.

I use this light on my bike home from a late night class (or when the weather is icky and I want to make sure I'm visable). It comes with a number of options for clipping to the bike, different types of bags, or I've even clipped it to the back of my pants in a pinch.

It's got different options for flashing or solid light, which is nice. Very convenient that it takes a normal type of battery that I usually have at home, so I don't have to go in search of some special battery when it starts getting dimmer.
