  • Low battery indicator

Cons

    Comments about Blackburn Mars 3.0 Tail Light:

    This light is cheaply priced, but high quality. It's bright, has several blink settings, lasts a long time, very visible (sides too), has a tool-less mount, able to clip onto pants/belt. I have another rear light that's double the price, and sworn by many, but this light is probably better, even disregarding the price.

                  Comments about Blackburn Mars 3.0 Tail Light:

                  As you might expect from Blackburn...well made and the LED's are super-bright. I expect long battery life and reliable operation. Mounting was more frustrating than I have experienced with other lights. I prefer seatstay mounting to seatpost mounting and there just was no way to get the light vertical--not enough tilt in the mount so it went on the seatpost. That was easy. It might be a result of my girlfriends frame layout and wheel size (city hybrid bike)and the seatpost shock....but it did ultimately work.

                    Comments about Blackburn Mars 3.0 Tail Light:

                    I've had this light for a long time, at least 5 years. It still works great. Battery life is good as others have mentioned, I've used it countless times for short rides and can't remember the last time it needed batteries. It is very bright from the rear and is reasonably visible from the side as well. The only thing that I would like to see different is that you need a large flat object (usually a screwdriver, although a dime for example could work) to take it on and off. Even on my commuter I don't like to have all kinds of accessories attached unless I'm using them that day, so I do take it on and off often. It would be nice to have a tool free on/off (wing nut?) although it is a quick process when you do have the right tool.

                      Comments about Blackburn Mars 3.0 Tail Light:

                      Over 20year commuter, and have had many rear lghts -cheap to expensive. This Blackburn really does the trick; very alerting, 3 mode, waterproof, and the kicker? Doesn't eat batteries! A lot of reviews mention how effective this one or that one is the next best, But generally fail at how long they run if they run by own battery. Too often runtimes are woefully short. As a commuter, it is a hassle to find a dead light, or charge it the night before. The Blackburn Mars 3.0 goes a LONG time between batt changes, bright/attention grabbing, never find water inside during winter. So good that I bought a few so I could share the base clips. (probably why these are still made.) I'm not even curious of the 4.0
