still have the Vista-light I got 20 years ago too , so ?

there is the camp of lots of battery lights vs the simpler just one hub-dynamo powered light camp

you seem to think its Hatfields Vs ~McCoy s or the war of the roses or some civil war

back on your hamster-wheel of shopping loyalists dueling Opinions ..

'Best' is just an opinion, after all..

That said, there's only a few (at DX) that I'd suggest actually buying -- others aren't any good, or are OK but they have others that are better for the same price, etc.

The reason that the OP has his sights set on Amazon and $20 is that he was given a $20 Amazon gift card.

And really, if I'm only giving somebody one light ... a headlight is probably more important than a tail light anyways, especially if their bike has some reflectors on it already. I haven't gone so far as to carry spare headlights with me with the intent of giving them away yet, though I have loaned friends my spare lights (I've always got at least two headlights on my bike when I'm riding at night.)
Actually the ones I had were upgraded from the last batch I bought. The output while weak is better than nothing which is the point. The quarter size coin batteries they use aren't going to last more than a couple months true but no matter what you give someone they likely won't replace batteries anyway. If I can find something the uses a couple AAA's, has three or more leds and can mount without the need of a tool that would be the better option.

For the time being D/X sells a set of front/back frog type lights ( using coin cells ) for about $5. While they are far from the best they are cheap and can be considered "throwaways". I buy the coin cells from the chinese so I could give a spare set of those away as well.

Hopefully if you pull someone over you won't have a language barrier to overcome. The less complicated something is the easier it is to explain ( in a minute or two ) how something like a flasher works.

If someone has a link to some cheap flashers ( < $5 ) using triple A's please point them out.

The Planet Bike Rack Blinky 5 is good for under $20. Runs off AAA, lasts many hours. Bright enough for nighttime use, but not for daytime. Mine shows up well in dusk and nighttime photos and videos, even compared with nearby vehicles.

Serfas has a newish "Stop Sign" taillight that runs off AA batteries and reportedly is a bit brighter, for around $25.

Both of these incorporate red reflectors along with the red diffusers, which seems to enhance visibility despite the modest lumens claimed for each.

I just got an Apache Vision USB rechargeable for $20 off Amazon. So far I really like it and I've had many different lights. I'll post more about it later, but check it out.

FWIW, in the last year the Blitzu 168T has become available for < $20. I've had one for about 6 months now and I think it's fantastic. I own a lot of taillights, and what I ride with at the moment is a Blitzu 168T on the helmet, and a PDW Danger Zone on the trunk.

I got this one and like it very much. It's a solid light, and it's rechargeable. Gives good wide-angle light.
Best Rear Light for $25?

+1 on this Blitzu light. I got one for Christmas and so far it's fantastic. Love the convenience of USB recharging.

I also have a Portland Design Works "The Red Planet" which I now wear on the back of my helmet.

At least some of the Blitzu lights are made by a very large bike light manufacturer (Raypal) in China. I was given a Blitzu Gator 320 front light for Christmas and because I couldn't find the specifications for the battery, I opened the light only to find the Raypal name on the inner components. It sells for around $30 under the Blitzu name but you can find the same light for under $15 under a variety of other brand names.

I own two Raypal taillights. My Raypal RPL-2266 has 26 chips in the COB that makes up the light. It is identical to the Blitzu 168T from the outside. Count the LED chips in your Blitzu for comparison. Raypal rates the light 100 lumens. It is very bright. You can get it from a US seller in California for as little as $6 postpaid on eBay Ultra Bright USB Rechargeable Safety Bike Helmet or Backpack Light | eBay It is the same light I bought for $10 about 6 months ago. The prices have been dropping like a stone ever since the number of COB (Chip on Board) USB rechargeable taillights has increased. You can find more than a dozen versions of these lights for less than $15, especially if you are willing to use an overseas seller and wait about 2 weeks for delivery. Any of this design are plenty bright for nighttime use.

My Vista light Broke a spring battery terminal clip, so I got a Planet Bike Grateful red, it came with 2 clips

1 rack mount , I used it where the other light was, and a post mount , so 1 tail light used on 2 bikes.

they go in a pocket when off the bike..

Dont work at a computer terminal, so USB has little advantage.

@VegasTriker, thanks for the ebay link to the $6 tail light. I'm going to try one. I won't be able to compare it with the real Blitzu, but I'll compare it with my Cygolite.

It just gets better...I have two of the Blitzu's ( purchased last year ) that I bought for mounting to my seat stays. Just one makes a very good rear light, very bright.

Doing just a quick check on ebay reveals that VegasTriker is right, prices on the COB type LED lamps have dropped like a rock. For example,
goes for a little under $4. Last year I paid about $15 ea. for mine and thought that was a bargain. No need to buy the cheap frog style lamps anymore for give-a-ways. These are not only 4x as bright but are usb rechargeable and can be bought in red ( for rear use ) and white for the front. ( Actually, the 6 mode version can be bought to include red/white in the same lamp...like the ones I have ) Almost everyone has a phone nowadays so giving something away that recharges with a phone charger would undoubtedly be the way to go.

If the OP really must buy it on Amazon the equivalent of the Blitzu 168T is listed for 10 bucks. 26 LEDs in the Chip-on-Board, 500 mAh USB rechargeable battery, 6 modes, and 168 lumens. This is exactly like the Raypal 2266 that I own. https://www.amazon.com/Bicycle-USB-R...ZTZ5YVQ6BSVQ18 It's funny that there is a seller on Amazon selling the 100 lumen Raypal Comet RPL-2261 for $50. I paid $7 for mine and that included shipping. It's why I avoid Amazon. Much easier to compare prices on eBay.

When it comes to where you buy from; Ebay vs. Amazon...With ebay you have to pay attention to where the item is being shipped from. Lots of Chinese sellers on ebay. Usually not the case with Amazon. Ebay will give you the best prices but I like the convenience of shopping on Amazon. Either way you get good deals. Amazon usually will hit you up with higher shipping costs unless you have an Amazon Prime account. If you want the stuff fast though, Amazon the way to go. Anyway, this is like the one I have ( on Amazon ) ( 6-modes with red and white ...different branding but same 6-mode lamp. The ebay version of this lamp I can buy cheaper ( at half price ) but it will ship from China and take a month to reach me. Money isn't always the biggest issue.

On a side note notice that the 6-mode lamp has translucent sides. This allows for a fair amount of side illumination. The linked Blitzu looks like the side panels are opaque.

When I buy on ebay, I consider there to be a chance that the merchandise will be total junk or I won't get a shipment at all. I spend with "burnable" money. When I buy from Amazon and they're acting as a conduit to an external seller, if the seller doesn't offer satisfaction, Amazon will refund my money without any trouble. That's why I'm willing to pay a little more there. Also, Amazon has good shipping time estimates. Maybe ebay does, but I don't trust them and expect them to be a crapshoot.

Yep, they have a warehouse and delivery service right here in Baltimore, not real far from where I live. Matter of fact I got a delivery today..."On Sunday"!?...who would of thought. This time I ordered another cheap COB rear lamp for the seat post. Well, turned out this time to be, "Not so great a lamp", but it works. For the $11 I paid for it I can't complain too much. Sometimes when you roll the dice and only break even, you just have to accept the fact that you aren't going to come out on top all the time.

Rechargeable lights

There are so many lights on the market now you just need to do a search. Find one that will connect where you want it, is durable/waterproof, but most importantly that had a USB charge port. Disposable batteries are Bad! I have 5 lights on my bike, 4 different types including the Schmidt dynamo head light. I hang the clip lite on my left mirror to dangle. I also pull a trailer and have it lit up. Don't forget the functionality of a good reflector too.

Sorry to say I'm unimpressed with the generic light that @VegasTriker recommended. It didn't come charged. I charged it but there was no charge indicator light. I still haven't figured out how to cycle through the modes. Then it discharged and wouldn't take a charge. Aha I just discovered that it does have a charge indicator light. But worse, the USB plug has to be pushed in just right, because the contacts come undone even when the plug is in. Also, the construction is unimpressive.

I do understand that this was inexpensive and not built to impress. Maybe these days I prefer well made things. I do sometimes enjoy cheap things for how well they serve, given their price, but too many bike lights have disappointed.

I'll try this again. I mounted on the side of my left crank so that it points forward for part of the cycle and back for part of the cycle. Not sure if that's a good idea, but I have received compliments on the light in my rear wheel.

That's an interesting idea. Never thought about doing that.

Hey, sometimes when you buy something cheap you get something cheap. If it works, it should be pretty bright.

Yesterday I got behind a guy on a bike using a rear flasher. It was light enough that I knew if I could get close enough I could see what he was using. Basically I was wondering "why", the damn thing was so dim. When I finally got close I could see what he was using. He was using a basic standard ( think first generation ) three led rear blinkie. The reason it looked so dim was the mounting. The guy had it on back of his seat post and pointed more than 45į down. I can't help but think that perhaps this was done on purpose.

I've seen enough people with their tail lights aimed poorly that I'm sure it's not done consciously. Perhaps some people know it's less than ideal but don't know how bad it is. I even see people using tail lights as headlights. What the heck are they thinking? I actually asked one, and he admitted he hadn't really thought about it.

Yes, a light making a noticeable motion is a good attention getter. My spoke light is quite dim, but it gets a lot of attention. It looks dorky to "serious" cyclists, but I can't give it up, because it works so well.
