I once had a light that flashed blue and red, and an oncoming car pulled over because he didn't know what I was driving. I decided I won't use blue and red anymore.
They're pretty bright, especially when fully charged. Can't go wrong with the red ones. I like to mount the light with button on top on the 4th setting. This setting flashes an intermittent light going upwards, which I think is a cool effect. Also, don't pull too hard on the rubber rings when mounting. I've broken a plastic tab doing that. Still use the light with 3 of 4 intact tabs, though.

I don't think much of the Lumintop battery capacity specifications. 180 mAh battery to drive a total of 130 lumens is a recipe for a short run time between charges. I often suggest a pair of Lezyne Drive clones readily available from US sources on eBay for under $10 a pair including shipping. The internal USB rechargeable battery is 500 mAh. That meant I can use them in flashing mode for several days worth of rides before recharging them. One white and one red light $9.58 postpaid https://www.ebay.com/itm/165623980506

I bought the Lumintop lights... I like them so far. I don't ride in the dark very often, so run time isn't an issue for me; I anticipate using them maybe a few times a year. So far they're adequate for my needs (visibility).
