NiteRider Sentinel 40 Tail Light
Not only does the NiteRider Sentinel 40 tail light deliver an impressively bright 40 lumens of LED illumination, but this light features the ingenious Laser Lanes feature. The Sentinel 40 projects laser lines onto the ground on either side of the bicycle which creates a virtual bike lane and suggests a safe passing distance for motorists. The Sentinel 40 features both steady and flash modes and a run time of 4.5 to 36 hours (depending on mode). Re-charging the light is convenient via the USB cable -- a four-hour process for a full charge. There's also plenty of versatility in placement of the tail light with a quick release bracket for seat post mounting plus a universal clip for attachment to clothing or a bag.

Comments about NiteRider Sentinel 40 Tail Light:

I needed a light that was bright-enough for when I commuted to work, yet dim-enough to not blind the guy behind me in the paceline. This has the settings for that. I even got compliments from my buddies. Not having seen anyone using this while I was in a car, I don't know how effective the laser is, but it is a big Wow factor with the buddies.
It would be perfect if it didn't need to be recharged every other day.

Comments about NiteRider Sentinel 40 Tail Light:

I ride to work and I needed a brighter light, I have the 750 headlamp and I like that product so I picked up their tail light.
Although it's called the 40 and I know they have brighter taillights on their website - I don't see how you could get any brighter.
The flash modes are great. I've found as a driver that I notice odd sequences much more that a repeating flash.
Since I usually have my light attached to an under saddle bag (Aphidura) I do not use the laser lane function, though I do see how it might help in the darkness.
Only issues I have are that the rubber plug for the USB is loose and the adjustable seat post mount is too easy to move (shifts as I ride and I've tightened the screw) which is why it's now on the bag.

    Comments about NiteRider Sentinel 40 Tail Light:

    Excellent light but one big watch out. The junction that secures the mounting bracket and light together isn't sufficient. I Lost one light before figuring this out so now I just zip strap the two together. Other than that one challenge the light is amazing and the laser lines are a great feature.
