    not at all. i believe in using focused beams for everything but dedicated side lighting. this thing simply wouldn't have the throw required from an effective tail light.

    just isn't bright enough to stand out in an environment like this:



    it would also probably run out of battery life in 1 hour and fail after 2 weeks.

    i think i learned from my experiment with Bike After Dark Fireball spoke lights that a good idea is nothing without a properly engineered implementation.

    Dinotte Daytime Red is the perfect tail light. Get two with 4 cell pack each - put one on the seatpost, one on the Helmet and you're good.

    no i only have one Daytime Red and one regular 400R Dinotte. but i would have gotten two Daytime Reds if i was doing it again. i got regular 400R first and i was mislead by Dinotte into thinking it will suit my needs better.

    in actuality the Daytime Red is all around better. brighter AND wider AND still gets 12 hours of battery run time on the 4 cell battery. what's not to like ?

    the Daytime works great day and night. just bright enough to be seen during the day, just dim enough to not make drivers go off the side of the road from being blinded at night.

    it's perfect. everybody should have one, well, two.

    The people from DiNotte never met an Androworldlyian. You might cut them some slack.

    your link doesn't work but i found the product you are talking about:



    i have something similar - it's pointless.

    at night it will add little visibility to a proper setup using Dinotte / NiteFlux blinkys and during the day it will add no visibility at all to a yellow T shirt.

    mine looks like this:



    at least mine would add some visibility to a black T-Shirt during the day.

    that sort of a thing would be perfect for walking your dog at night or something like that.
