At 40 mph a car will travel 1760ft in 30 seconds! On dark days drivers need to see you at least that far in advance because they are half asleep from darkness, cold, and fog.

Small tail lights are not visible at that distance, except at night. And even then it is hard to judge the distance to you.

This is a 12 volt truck tail light with 56 large L.E.D.s

Just look at truck tail lights (with the brake light on) when they are 2000 feet ahead of you. The other way to be seen on dark day is to wear a 'day-glow' shirt.

15 seconds at 50mph is 1100ft, think about it.








Lithium batteries need good chargers with heat sensors because lithium creates its own oxygen, there for burns easy! Unfortunately this is the usual kind of battery pack and it needs AC to charge.
