Asking for rear high intensity lights

There was a post, that I can no longer find that included someone asking for high intensity rear lights for fog , or poor visibility use.

http://www.myra-simon.com/bike/whiteLED.html

Try the one shown on the right, it can be set with three different styles, slow flash, fast flash, and permanently on, and off. You will need to make a strip to attach it, but when not in use keep in pocket, or tank bag. Light is visible for one mile.

The one shown in that link is a front one, but rear ones are available.

I use LED lights that fit inside the standard fixture, a great improvement- and they use less electricity to boot...

I was riding to work yesterday in the dark and an oncoming bicycle (on the footpath) nearly blinded me with a little light on the rider's helmet! No idea what brand etc. but the power of that little sucker was amazing. The LEDs mounted in our Miller tail lights are very effective at drawing low power but their brightness is limited due to the opaque rear lens and lack of any internal mirror lens. The 23LED driving lights on my car can be seen at a great distance due to the mirror reflector and clear lens. A similar rear fog/spot light could easily be attached via velcro onto a motorcycle helmet (if that is legal?).

The problem with doing that, is getting the direction.

Rear lights can be greatly improved by painting the inside silver or sticking silver foil to the inside.
