I notice that Evans have the Smart Lunar R1 at 50% off at the moment, 9.99.
I have been using a 5 LED Cat Eye TL-610 and while it gives a good light, mine is loose in the clip and it's size makes it a little difficult to attach without getting in the way of a saddle bag (a very small one that I occasionally use). My mate uses the R1 and I have seen that it is very bright and visible from a long way off. So when I saw that Evans was offering it for half price I picked up one.
The unit has 3 LED: 1 big one and 2 smaller. The light modes allow for the big one to be turned off for group riding. Using readily available 2 AAA batteries, it's already won it's place on my bike.

    I have one of these
    http://www.evanscycles.com/products/blackburn/flea-20-led-rear-light-ec029661?query=blackburn light
    It charges by USB via my laptop so I never need to buy batteries, has a Li-on battery so no need to discharge before a recharge to avoid locking.
    It clips onto the little loop on the back of this

    So I dont even need to put a bracket on my bike.
    I use it every time I ride no matter what the weather and it's still going strong after 18 months.
