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.

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.
