      Great price on a very bright light. Compared to a lot I see on the road, this one is more easily visible. Have only had a couple of weeks, so I hope it's durable!

          Light weight and reasonably powerful for the price/size. Provides for warning trailing drivers for my purpose of early evening riding. Remove the batteries if you are not using the light for an extended period.

            Comments about Nashbar Beacon 1/2 Watt LED Tail Light:

            For the price, this is one of the better taillights out there. Although it requires AAA batteries, which contributes to a heavier light, its good enough to be "seen". It has 3 LED's with one on top being the brightest. Nice to have 3 modes of operation, though it would be nice to have different frequency for pulsing instead of the current On/Off mode.
