    Portland Design Works Danger Zone Rear Light

    Decent deal for a 2 x 1/2W LED tail light. If I hadn't just bought a new Smart Lunar 1W I would be all over this. $18.98

    Here's a nice vid showing it compared to the PBSF and Radbot 1000

    If anyone wants something with even more punch, the new hotness is the Cygolite Hotshot. 2 watts, USB-rechargable, $40. Just make sure to aim it dead-on, because it's pretty focused. Also, be careful not to lose the nut from the mounting bolt, it's pretty small and could disappear into your carpet

    2 W Hotshot here:CygoLite Hotshot 2W USB Plus includes Wall Charger <$22.

    PB SuperFlash Turbo vs PDW Radbot-1000 - YouTube

    Most of these lights give the maximum power rating of the LED not actual consumption of the LED in use. One exception is the NiteFlux which pushes 770 mA in flash mode for 4 watts and an 8 hour run time and a 165 plus degree beam but it is $100.

    My long distance videos says the Turbo and Radbot 1000 out shoot the Danger Zone at 1/4 mile, but the DZ has better side view and a bit wider beam.

    I've seen a lot of people with the Superflash around here, but I don't know which version. It seems like a very popular light. The high-output LED is very visible in a sea of automobiles at night. The two smaller LEDs, not so much; I don't even think I noticed those until I was within 10-20 meters.

    Even on an overcast day, I can see the Superflash's HO LED from quite some distance but same story with the smaller LEDs.

    Is there is a discount code to apply or is the sale over for the DangerZone? I have one but I got it from eBay for around $25.

    Danger Zone was the "deal of the day" so it was only for that one day.
