I have two clip-on taillights, linked below. One on my Bell Citi's helmet strap, the other clips to the back of my seatpost bag.

I would like a MUCH brighter taillight for some ultra cycling events coming up. Clipping to my seatpost is not an option, as I'm using a large, expanding under-seat bag. So it needs to clip on either my helmet, back of seat-post bag, or chainstay.

Looking for recommendations. I'm talking as bright as possible.

(this is what I'm using...)

Check out the Blackburn Mars 3.0. You have the option of seatpost mount or cliping it to a strap. I use it for my commuting. It is extremly bright with the seven LED's. It also has a lifetime warranty.

I like the Planet Bike BRT-5 and BRT-7 (www.planetbike.com) and find them to be adequate. The 5 goes on my Chrome bag and the 7 goes on the left chainstay. While the 5 is ok, I really like the BRT-7. It seems to cover the most angles.

This is the brightest on the market. It clips onto anything, lasts forever, and is brighter in the daylight than most lights are in the dark.

Cateye light you mention really is an excellent light. I am working on a lightweight mounting
design so one can mount the light below the seatpost and offset from the rear stays so it doesn't interfere with a seatpost tool bag.

This post is kind of old, but I felt obligated to disagree with Jesse. I think the Dinotte is the brightest off-the-shelf taillight. If I lived in a big city this is the taillight I would use. It's not cheap at $100+ though.
