Cygolite Hotrod 90?

Anybody using this? Is it bright enough for daytime visibility?
I need something that mounts to a seat stay.
I wish the USB port could be accessed without having to take it off the bike.

Thanks

It looks like an interesting light. It is unclear how much side lumination it has.

Are you planning on using it day or night?

For night use, I prefer only moderate power. Enough to be seen, but not enough to blind, or decrease visibility.

The long strip light should spread out the light some from being a single point source, and should aid with visibility, but not too intense.

I have a couple hot rod 50s... have been really happy with them. Easy to mount, lasts for a good 3 hour ride, pretty visible. For day time use I'd go with the 90
