Busch & Müller Seculite Plus Taillight

The Seculite Plus is designed to be mounted to a fender. It can also be mounted on a cantilever post with the cross bracket (see related items below). It's a bright LED tail light that is designed to work with any generator powered headlight. It has a "Standlight" which keeps the LEDs lit for several minutes after you stop.

It will work with any LED headlight. The Seculite Plus uses .6 Watts, requiring the Lumotec headlight to use a 2.4 Watt bulb if paired with a halogen headlight.

Two strand wiring with connectors to the headlight is included.

Very Bright but ...

Pros

  • Great visibility

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Rear safety light

    Comments:

    This light is remarkably bright. It does the job. If you use it on roads with a lot of pot holes and you bike fast as I do, then the constant shaking of the light on your fender will damage the light mount. I'm in the country side and pot holes are unavoidable. I'm going to switch to the rack mounted light instead. This should reduce the "whiplash effect" that I get on the fender. Buy it! It's a great light. (if you are on smooth roads)

    • Weatherproof
    • Affordable
    • durable
    • Great visibility

    Cons

    • Connectors Shake Loose

    Best Uses

    • Night commute
    • Rear safety light

    Comments:

    I commute 20 miles per day with the B+M Seculite Plus powered off a Dyno-Hub. I do not have to worry about batteries or theft (bolts to the frame). Positives: Dyno hubs have no noticeable drag, Seculite Plus is very light, Seculite Plus is very bright, light bolts to frame, light works in all weather conditions, light is very durable. The only downsides I have had is after 5 years of daily riding, the circuit stopped working - so, I purchased a new one, and used that until it also had an issue after 5 years of daily riding. Then, I tested my old one and it worked again. (Capacitor maybe?) The other downside is that the connectors do shake loose with bumps in the road. We have many potholes in USA streets. I got around this by soldering the connector in place.

    Excellent dynamo tail light

    Comments:

    This tail light was purchased to replace the Soubitez bulb type unit that came installed on my Raleigh Detour deluxe. The stand-light feature alone makes it worth the price, add to that the extremely rugged fiberglass reinforced resin body, better visibility than a bulb and maintenance free LED illumination, now you have the best tail light I have seen for sale in the US that doesn't require a battery! Note that there is a lens element that spreads light from the LED to give very good visibility over a much wider angle than would otherwise be possible with a single LED.
