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:

    Like many of the other comments, I found the battery life to be extremely disappointing. I can't seem even to get 2 hours on blinking mode. Not worth the effort to return it. Spend more to get a light that works.

        I really like this light. The mounting strap works on everything and the charge last forever. For the price, this is one of the best tail lights out there.

          Comments about Nashbar Street Light USB Tail Light:

          This light is an excellent value. It attaches snugly to a 27.2 seatpost (probably fits bigger sizes too, but come on, 90% of bikes are 27.2), has a durable rubber coating, and even a plug for the USB slot to prevent moisture from creeping in. I'd recommend it to anyone needing an upgrade from either blinky clip-ons, anything AA or AAA powered. It doesn't seem very versatile in where you can mount it, but for $5-7, it's a great seatpost mounted light. Comes with USB cable, no charger, but you know you've got USB chargers al around your home, so you're covered.

          Poor battery life - only 2.5 hours in blinking mode...

              Solidly constructed light. A pleasure to hold in hand and use. Learned quickly that it needs to be recharged after only two hours of use in blinking mode, which is supposed to use less power...

                Use it on my commuter bike. Best part is being able to attach and remove it easily. Here in Portland ANY light you leave on your bike will be stolen. That is why it is nice to easily attach and remove it. It is also very secure, unlike a couple of very expensive usb lights that have fallen off my bike. And usb is the only way to go now. No more batteries! Especially when you can get something like this great little light for so cheap.

                    Comments about Nashbar Street Light USB Tail Light:

                    This is a great light if you need a waterproof and easily removable design. However, the rechargeable battery self-discharges within a few weeks, so just know that you have to be vigilant and make sure you keep charging the light even if you haven't used it for a while, or you could be left in the dark for a late night ride. Personally, I think for a rear blinkie light, disposable AAAs are the way to go. You put it on, forget about it and have a reliable safety device for many months of riding, because alkaline batteries hold there charge when idle.

                      Very easy to attach. Very bright for the money. Easy to turn on, even while moving. USB is easy and cheaper than batteries. Charge lasts quite a while.

                        I've bought this for my daughter's road bike, and I wanted a light for the back of my helmet. I rigged a heavy duty rubber band and it works great, also the matching headlight fits easily on the front of my helmet. I now have 8 lights! Can you see me now?
