It is a 1-watt LED with a large reflector below the light which gives additional visibility when approaching-from-behind car's headlights hit it. This one-two combo, a super bright flashing 1-watt LED and reflector gives it a significant edge compared to other bike lights. I also want to mention that the reflector acts as some sort of insurance that in the event your batteries die on you mid-ride in low or no daylight situations, you will still have some visibility as soon as approaching headlights hit the reflector. That is significant fail-safe mechanism in my opinion, at least in dusk to night situations.
Powered by 2-AAA batteries, you can expect about 30 hours of operation according to Portland Design Works but if you use non-rechargable alkaline batteries you will likely see the light lasting up to 50 hours or more in zZz Pop mode. That's what I get. Running the light in steady on mode will greatly reduce your battery life to about 12 hours (according to Portland Design Works. I never use that mode so couldn't advise you on that.)
It comes with a variety of mounting hardware that makes it convenient to mount, either on the back of a seat bag, or attach it to the seatpost or seatstay. Whatever works best for you.
Compared to the PlanetBike Blinky Superflash Planet Bike Blinky Superflash Tail Light which uses a 1/2 watt LED, the Radbot 1000 provides twice the light.Read more ›
I've owned a number of bike lights since I started commuting exclusively by bike about 5 years ago. I normally ride with only one tail light. I bought this light 4 months ago and loved it. This is the brightest light that I've owned, definitely brighter than the superflash. The addition of the reflector is also a nice touch. One thing that I noticed though was that as the light is a 1W light it drains batteries noticeably faster than the .5 W lights that I've owned. That said I would still rate the light with 5 stars.
Why then 3 stars? As a previous reviewer noted, this light has issues with going off mid ride. On three occasions I turned on the light and 2 miles later when I got home the light was out. As I don't always ride in bike lanes and I tend to ride on busy roads and some that aren't really really well lit that scared the crap out of me (luckily there is the reflector). Then two days ago I turned on the light and it blinked for 2 seconds and went off. I turned it on again to the same result. The third time I tried to turn it on, it didn't come on. I changed the batteries, still no luck.
After 4 months it no longer turns on.Read more ›
