    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.

    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.
