Nashbar Street Light USB Tail Light
Nobody likes buying new batteries. We've been known to switch the batteries between our TV and DVD remotes just to avoid buying them, and don't even get us started on batteries for bike lights. We got so sick of it, we just made our own rechargeable tail lights. We're proud to introduce the Nashbar Street Light USB: a small, USB rechargeable light that fits anywhere on your bike or helmet.
  • USB rechargeable means no more slowly fading lights until you are absolutely forced to buy new batteries
  • Red LED light is lightweight, bright, easy to see and nearly indestructible
  • Weatherproof silicone housing makes these perfect for riding in any weather
  • Easily attaches anywhere on your bike
  • 3 modes: high, low and flash
Nashbar Street Light USB Tail Light
  • RUN TIME 2.5 hours (high), 5.5 hours (low), 11 hours (flash)
  • BRIGHTNESS
  • MODES 3 (high, low, flash)

    Comments about Nashbar Street Light USB Tail Light:

    I used to worry about how long the light was on and the batteries. Now I just plug it in after every ride and it's ready to go for the next day. USB recharging cord perfect too: shines red when charging and then green when complete. Easy to mount anyplace on bike too. Nothing bad to say about it.

        Comments about Nashbar Street Light USB Tail Light:

        Nice bright taillight that is highly visible at night. It is very east to mount in a variety of places on the bike with the flexible rubber hook strap. Seems fairly weather resistant also. If there is one con... I'd have to say the rubber USB cover is sometimes a little difficult to remove. Other than that... a great little light.

          I got this for my son's rear rack on his touring bike- I was having trouble finding a light that mounts to a rack. It matches his Nashbar front light. Compact, durable, highly visable and you don't have to buy new batteries! I would pay twice the amount for this light! (Don't tell Nashbar!)

            Comments about Nashbar Street Light USB Tail Light:

            Surprisingly, this is a great little light.
            Very Bright.
            Easy to power on; even wearing lobster gloves.

            Shine Angle can not be adjusted. but you have two angles if you invert the installation.
            Single LED, but slightly refracting lens creates a wider pattern.

              Good for 6-8 of my 24 mile morning rides with my group before recharging in blinking mode. Easy to switch from one bike to another.

                  Comments about Nashbar Street Light USB Tail Light:

                  this is a great idea for a product, but really poor battery. maybe i got a bad batch? i ordered 2 head lights and 2 tailights... none will hold a charge and are not reliable for night riding. nothing worse than thinking you have fresh battery and then 10 miles from home you realize you have no functioning tail light.

                    It is my first tail light for my bike and I am very satisfy with this product. It is very easy to install by the elastic band that is attached to the light. When you install, the light is angled. So put the on/off button on your left side in order to be visible to cars. I made that mistake and it was blinking on my tire in my night ride.

                        Comments about Nashbar Street Light USB Tail Light:

                        I purchased three of these lights in one order. The order arrived within a few days. Unfortunately two of the three lights did not work at all. I contacted customer service at Nashbar, which was very polite and responsive. I was told to send them back using a prepaid postage return label that was on the original shipping label. Customer service even offered to send me a prepaid label if I could not find the original. I have asked that Nashbar send replacement lights, not a refund, but I have also asked that they check them before shipment. The one light that does work seems very good. It charges within a few hours. It has one very bright LED. I like the simple way it attaches to the seat post, using a thick rubber band that is molded into the light. The only design flaw (other than the fact that 2/3rds of the lights that were shipped didn't work!) is that the LED seems to be set into the light kind of deep, and may not be very visible from the side. But if the replacement lights work properly I'll be very happy with these lights.

                            This light is very bright, and the USB charging is great.
                            I expected it to be more symetrical, but it's angled so the light will be level when mounted on a seat post. I have a seat bag, so I couldn't mount it on my seat post. I mounted it on the bag vertically and it's pointed slightly to the traffic side of the bike (which is probably better than having it point straight back).
