These slick looking silver or black lights get a notched cowl at the LED end for a glimpse of side light, and toggle between solid and flashing modes to tune visibility and 2-16 hour run times.
They’re for being seen, rather than seeing with, but the front is bright enough to limp home in an emergency and the switch has a battery indicator.
They’re not as eye catching as a reflector or multi LED light in heavy urban traffic, but they’re great on country roads, and the silicone strap and clip mounts are secure.
They plug directly into a USB port to charge.
