    After my brief and ultimately doomed love affair with the the B+M
    Topline Plus I swore I'd just get a normal D-Toplight. However, as I
    was at the shop I was seduced, led astray, tempted from the one true
    path by Stan, and bought the Toplight Flat Plus.

    Scientific research[1] has led me to believe this is a nice bright
    light, and further research[2] has shown a nice long standby time. Has
    a reasonably slim fit, does *not* have the short button, and is bright.

    I hope it lasts longer than the 3 months that piece of Line Plus cheese,
    but initial signs are good.

    What are peeps preferred dynamo rear light?

  2. Tosspot twisted the electrons to say:
    As is happens I've got a DToplight Flat Plus, just not actually mounted
    to a bike at this point![1] The dynamo rear light that I *do* have
    mounted is a B&M Seculite Plus, though mine's mounted off the seatpost
    rather than a rear mudguard. Seems to be working okay so far ...

    I've previously had DToplight Plus on a previous bike, which also died
    rather too quickly for my liking but it's replacement seemed okay.

    [1] Though this may be subject to change in the near future, as it may
    end up on the rear rack of the MTB[2] if it ends up pulling commuting
    [2] Or if I end up buying a Bachetta Corsa as an audax bike it might end
    up being mounted in the mesh pocket on the Brain Box?

  3. I'm still on ordinary Seculite Plusses for ease of mudguard mounting. If I
    want a reflector on my pannier rack, I'll just put on a reflector.

    Not the Brompton one where the standlight breaks, anyway.
