Anyone know the name of the super bright Light in Motion rear light? I've found it as a package (helmet + rear) but only want the rear light.

Wheelaway...you might mean the Light & Motion Vis 180 Tail Light:

I did a little checking on that tail light. 35 lumens. I'm already forgetting how bright that is compared to the Dinotte tail light that can be had for about $125 ( I think it's about 100 lumens.) The Vis is an odd, but nice light though. Plugs into the computer USB to charge. Has an odd flash character. The Dinotte is also odd in its own way....aesthetically, and doesn't have the USB convenience. Heard that it's made in the USA though.


Dinotte's website says it makes a tail light that uses rechargeable LiOn batteries, but I couldn't find pics or lumen specs for it on the Dinotte's site. The following is a pic of the $119.00 Dinotte tail light that, according to Dinotte's instructions, is only is capable of using AA batteries:
