I have a Planetbike TL-LD1000, and although it is quite bright, I still wanted more light. I liked the idea of a Xenon strobe and I purchased the Lightman strobe [http://www.lightmanstrobes.com/bike.htm] as it is a little more bike-friendly than the All Electronics strobe. The Lightman is nicely constructed and mounts easily to the bike. However, I was disappointed with the brightness as it is not as bright as the TL-LD1000 although the field of view is much wider.

I'm going to build my own tail light using a Luxeon III red-orange LED driven at 1,200 mA with a 6 x 24 degree optic. I believe that this will be far brighter and with a wider field of view than most commercially available tail light, and certainly brighter than a inexpensive Xenon strobe.
