How about a red version to use as a second brake light.

Hiya

Good idea... It's in the pipeline, I'm thinking either brake / rear light or even fog.

Just got to source a red LED of suitable brightness.

Stay tuned :)

Will keep watching for them :)

Fog light is good idea too, should work really well for that. Think they may be a bit bright to use as running lights to the rear in normal conditions though.

Unless you are thinking of dual circuit so they have two brightness levels. Even if not I may be tempted to make my self a little circuit to do it, only needs a couple of diodes and a suitable sized resistor. Switch across the resistor to switch to fog light mode.....

think you would just need a resistor thats all...fed from +12v, it could just toggle on a 1p2w switch..

when fed via resistor pod dim, and direct pod bright.

I am thinking, dim when brake light off, bright when brake light on. Switch override to give bright all time for fog.
