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.

Easy to install, doesn't come off when hitting large bumps, nice and bright, perfecto!

Use it for most club rides in Westchester, NY and is nice and bright with various settings and battery seems to last.

BE SEEN!!

This is an excellent, potentially life saving product.

When I ride on the road, in the fog, at night, I'm no longer invisible.

Needles to say, it's also very good in daylight because it really is that bright.

This is an inexpensive, simple, and easy to mount product that will increase your visibility to those inattentive people driving tons of bicycle crushing metal.

Spend the money and feel a lot more confident on your rides.

The old standby

I've been using PB Superflashes for years, while commuting and recreational rides. For the money, it is hard to beat. There are brighter taillights but they cost more and their batteries don't last as long. The main drawback to the SF is that the on-off switch can be fickle to operate. Sometimes it's hard to activate or turn off, or it cycles through more than one mode. On the plus side, the SF lasts a very long time before the batteries need to be recharged or replaced - much longer than other lights I have used.

Blinky Blinkmeister

This is a very easy to see, easy to use tail light that anyone behind you can see! The only thing that is a drag is that it bounced off my saddlebag and into oblivion. I'd say the clip for attaching the light to a backpack, jersey, or saddlebag in my case, could be a little more sturdy, but this type of thing happens to pretty much any light when one uses the clip. Since mine is gone I hope somebody found it and is using it now.

GREAT TAIL LIGHT WITH EXCELLENT VISIBILITY!

I have this same tail light on 2 of my bikes because they radiate in the dark. Flashing strobe with a solid mount.

Very bright and effective light

Just they made a blackred variant instead of just redwhite or clearblack. I don't think clear is legal for rear light if you don't also have a red reflector - but don't quote me on that. But I do love this light. I have it attached to my saddle pack.

Best AAA Battery Back Light I've Used

The light is used for late rides where the return trip is at dusk. I use it in flasher mode which extends the battery life quite a bit. Best for road use, as I have had it come off of the mounting clip on bumping trails on my mtb.

Awesome light

Overall this is a great light! Very bright, has a cool flash pattern, energy efficient. My only gripe is the on-off switch. It requires a lot of searching for the exact right spot to push, and then a lot of pressure to turn on-off. Maybe I'm being picky? The only flaw in an otherwise super product!

Good light but better ones are available

I am always impressed when I see a rider up ahead using this light. But, I know for a fact that brighter ones exist because I have 2 lights that are even brighter. Both came from BTD. I gave my Superflash to a friend who is using it daily.

This really catches your attention

This light catches your attention when it comes into view. A bright red blinking light and it seems visible from a very wide angle of view. And in the dark is it difficult to miss, even if not looking directly at it. The price seems more than fair for how well it works. I cannot recall how many hours are on the batteries, so suffice to say they last quite a while. I am sure that I have 70 hours at this point. I have have had no issues at all and I have bought three of these lights. Two for my present bikes and a replacement for one that turned up missing.

I would buy again.

Really Bright!

I wanted a light that would wake up drivers when they approach me from the rear. This light does that. It is really bright and can be seen from a long way off which is what you want when you are riding beside any highway or on those country roads. I hope I can find a similar light for the front.

Fits Perfect

This light fits perfectly on my seat post or clips nicely to my jersey. Easy to clip on or off the bike. Very bright light that is very visible at night or low light hours.
