When you need to "be seen", the Planet Bike BRT-3 tail light is just the ticket. Its weatherproof design is lightweight and durable.
This light can be seen from up to 2000 feet away, thanks to 3 super-bright LEDs and a parabolic reflector.
The BRT-3 is not only highly visible, its versatile! It can be attached to your jersey using the included clip, or mounted to your seatpost with the included mount.
Two AAA batteries (included) power the light for up to 200 hours.
As inexpensive lights go, this works well and is simple to operate. Off-on-blinking modes are straightforward. Mounting hardware has proven to be entirely reliable. It gets drenched and still works.
Looking at the projected beam pattern in a dark room, there is one bright "hot spot" in the center, with rapid fall-off in intensity toward the sides.
My friends and I compared it to a few other tail lights on a deserted section of road in broad daylight. We felt some of the lights would be the most visible thing in a driver's field of view during the day and would be immediately noticed even at a great distance. This one is not in that league. Nonetheless, we all agreed that a driver would be more likely to see you with one of these during the day.
At night, it is plainly and obviously visible. No problem.
No regrets, I'm happy with it.

Other taillights have a wider "beam", both horizontally and vertically, so they can be seen earlier by motorists.
