    I have the Cateye hand grenade and find it pretty bright, good sideways visibility, good battery life, and you can have one row of leds flashing and the other static.

    Also just got a Smart Lunar 1/2 watt for son's bike but since he's passed his test he's apparently lost the use of his legs :roll: so it may be goin on my bike as a backup. Seems pretty bright, and I was surprised how small it is.
