“For commuters, the best front light is the very bright rechargeable lamp.”
Ken Kifer, Ken
Kifer’s Bike Pages

Ken Kifer was killed, while riding
his bicycle, by a drunk driver, on September 14, 2003. His wisdom about cycling
lives on.

“With vastly more light available, night bicycling is qualitatively far safer. The road can
be lit
both further ahead and, even more important, far more brightly to the sides of the bicycle.”
Marty Goodman, Writing about the CatEye’s Stadium Bicycle Light,
in History of Electric Lighting Technology


Not everyone can afford to buy a commercially
manufactured, very bright rechargeable lighting system, which Ken Kifer
accurately describes as the best light for commuters. While prices have come
down, a rechargeable lighting system is still over $100 when you add in a
good tail light.

lighting system without spending a lot of money. You can spend as little as $40
to construct a system, complete with a sealed beam headlamp, xenon strobe tail
light, rechargeable battery, and charger.

mail-order stores. I don’t sell anything, this is purely an informational site.
This site contains my informed opinions, as well as the views of other groups
and individuals. There are many different solutions for bicycle lighting that
meet the criteria of “seeing and being seen,” and there are many solutions that
do not meet these criteria. Choose wisely and use common sense.

You don’t have to spend hundreds of dollars for
an adequate lighting system. A lighting system is not rocket science, it’s
basically connecting a battery to some lamps, through some switches. The challenge is in sourcing the
proper components and mounting them to the bicycle in a secure and reliable

Automotive Lighting | Headlights, Tail Lights, LEDs, Bulbs

It’s hard to believe but at one time automotive lighting was a strictly utilitarian function, with small, mostly round lights that barely allowed you to see and be seen in the darkness. In contrast, today’s car lights are at the convergence of high-tech illumination and cutting edge automotive design. Both factory and aftermarket headlights and tail lights contain the latest in brilliant lighting technology like projector beams, LEDs, and fiber optics, and these lights are integrated into the body shape in ways so distinctive that in many cases lights have become a part of a vehicle’s identity. Meanwhile, the color and brightness of interior and dash lighting in modern vehicles can be varied in ways that truly create a custom ambiance in the cockpit.

Take a moment to peruse the array of automotive lighting products we have on offer and you’ll quickly see that we’re abreast of all the latest advancements in illumination. Whether you just want replacement auto light bulbs or replacement tail lights, or want to upgrade to bright LED bulbs and custom light fixtures, we have what you’re looking for. In addition we offer many ways in which you can augment your vehicle’s lighting to increase illumination and add custom style, including Daytime Running Lights (DRLs), fog lights, “angel eyes” halo lights, off-road lights and light bars, LED light grilles, and custom LED car lights for tailgates, wheel wells, hood scoops, mirrors, and under the car.

Bright car headlights and tail lights are necessary for driving safety, but age, abrasion from airborne debris, impacts and UV rays can take their toll, leaving them dim and damaged. Our replacement car headlights and tail lights meet all DOT and Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards and are identical to original equipment in every respect except for price. But instead of just replacing those lights, why not use the opportunity to upgrade your vehicle’s illumination and appearance. We have projector beam, Euro, Halo, U-Bar and LED headlights in styles never imagined by the factory and fiber optic, Euro, black and LED tail lights and 3rd brake lights that will make your car or truck more conspicuous.

Installing additional lights is another way to make your vehicle more visible and be able to see better in darkness and inclement weather. DRLs have been proven to make vehicles more conspicuous, reducing collisions, and fog lights reduce glare and help you see the road ahead when driving in dense fog. But there may be no other place where increased illumination and visibility is more important than out on the trail. Our halogen, xenon and LED off-road lights come in a range of beam patterns including driving beams, spot beams, and flood beams so you put light exactly where it’s needed and avoid tree stumps, boulders, and other obstacles.

But you don’t have to buy an entire light fixture to upgrade your lighting. In addition to our stock of standard replacement car light bulbs for every type of light including
