I have them on my trike, they are a 12 volt system so as bright as a car/motorbike, but when people see me I'm something different and most slow down and give me a wide berth and they all take notice on my indicators, but a bike dosen't have indicators and drivers they are looking for a hand signal so it may not work.

I see winglights are sold on Amazon

https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07 ... ecda59cb4e

On paper, they seem to meet my criteria

To the extent that Amazon reviews mean anything, they are mixed.

It's clear they are not for drops. The Amazon product is a new version, which implies that the vids online are out of date.

In a case like this, apart from the requirement that the user can operate them - not a given if they have a problem with their left arm - the big issue is how conspicuous are they in daylight?
