The tail light features two Nichia brand Japaenese Red LEDs housed in a water-resistant case with three strobe settings to keep you visible while you’re on the road. It’s powered by two AAA batteries (included) and lasts 15 hours on steady and up to 50 hours when blinking. The system easily mounts to your seatpost or seat stays, and Portland Design Works includes a backpack clip for additional mounting options.

    Great product and support from PDW

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    The Danger Zone puts out a very bright light. It also has a lifetime warranty. After one of my Danger Zones would not turn off, I returned it to PDW and they promptly replaced it. I appreciate a company that stands behind their products.

    Fine.... 'til it disappeared.

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    The Good: Bright and I liked the attachment system.

    The Bad: Just back from my third ride with this light to find that the front of the housing (the part with the lights and batteries) had become separated from the back somewhere on the road. I had had a fairly fast decent and hit a few potholes, but nothing out of the ordinary. Unless you ride only on extremely smooth roads, find something better.

    First Impressions Are Great!

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    After using this light for half a dozen morning rides, I have to say I'm very pleased.

    I went with the Danger Zone, rather than comparable models, because the DZ runs on AAA batteries. This means I can throw two AAAs in my stash pocket along with tubes, and multi-tool, and if my batteries dies, I can swap them out and won't end up a deadman. For extra credit, I use rechargeable AAA batteries making this a no-brainer for me, since USB charging ports are not mega durable on small electronics in general (and inconvenient when 20 miles from home and the battery dies...Now what you gunna do?)

    Another reason I went with the DZ light is the presence of two bulbs, which allows the light to double-team a driver's attention, making it more effective than a single bulb's dance. And, these bulbs are NOT SO bright that you'll scorch the retinas of the guy/gal behind you if riding in a group, so no worries there. Also, the three light modes are all I could ask for: a simple alternating top-bottom-top-bottom mode, a crazy schizo mode, and a steady stay-on mode give me all I need.

    Finally, I'm uber pleased with the mounting system, the STAYPUTNIK! It is easy to use to mount the light (not tools required), it's fast (probably 2-3 seconds to install or remove), and secure (it doesn't move around, but you can make micro-adjustments with your hand if needed). The mount is great and makes it even easier to fall in love with this light.

    If you're hesitant to drop $35 on a light, just remember you can't put a price on safety, and, ER visits can be terrifyingly pricey. Do it!

    Great Commuter Light

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    Great little commuter light. Love the seatpost attachment which is an easy to attach elastic strap. High visible for only running on AAA's and a few setting to choose from. Burn time is definitely 50 hours, it's lasted a long time!

    The Best!

      Best rear light I have found. In use for two years on (especially) night and even day riding on New England roads. (bike lanes are rare to non-existent)
      I have actually had many people clear a full lane when passing later advising that they thought it was the rear light from a police stop.
      You will not be disappointed. Six stars please!
