Who wants a niterider 19-LED tail light?

Comes with an 8AA battery pack (wire long enough to stuff into saddle pack) and "quick release" (I just replaced the screw with a thumb nut and screw).
Brightness is the same as the planetbike superspot but the viewing angle is about 2x.
Take it if you really need it.

sure, what's the catch?

you pay shipping thats what. My only prob is the batt pack, thats huge, 8 AAs.

8AA's equals 12V... I wonder if you could find a smaller 12V camera battery and rig a holder for it and cut down the size. Surely with all the lights being LED it would still run for a while with a smaller battery...

I'll take it if it is still available. I already have a 12v battery I can connect it to.

8 nimh cells 9.6v, just saying. Some lights say use ONLY nimh cells. I think dinote says that.

It depends. 8AA rechargeables is 9.6V. 8AA regular batt's are 12V. 8AA lithiums are 13.6V

It can in theory work off a 9V. Here's what I managed to measure off the thing: Volts vs current.

7.20/.017
8.40/.044
9.60/.073
10.8/.103
12.0/.133
13.2/.161
14.4/.190

A 9V's around a quarter amp, so it might power it for 4 hours or so but it wont be so bright. It's really brightest around 12.
