Good deal, I ordered a couple white ones to try them out but I like the color coding idea!

They are really bright, the white ones seem the brightest, but I have all 4 colors and they can be seen from a long ways away.  I like running multiple colors so I know which tip up is up just by the color of the light. I will put the red closest, blue middle, and white furthest.  Then if I am in the cabin or shanty and look out I know right away which one is up.

Nbaker - those lights look pretty awesome for the price and up to 300 hours of battery...what color did you go with? Think I need to get some before my SD trip in a couple weeks.

I don't like the way those "just the tip" lights attach.

I recently got these lights called "just the tip", they are small, brightest I have ever seen and extremely simple to use.  I really like all the color choices too.

I prefer old school. I use a strip of reflective tape on each side of the flag. I shine my tip-ups with a flashlight, and its horizontal when down, and vertical when up. Works with frozen fingers and no worries about dead specialty batteries.

I'm currently using the small Frabill lights and one I got from a friend, who's friend makes them. I can't recall the name, but they are bright. Lights up like day. Pic below is from 50-60 yards out.

Check out this light for just $8. Awesome LeD Light that is bright enough to see your spindle at night!   //https://www.ebay.com/itm/TIP-UP-LIGHT-Highly-Visible-LED-TIP-UP-LIGHT-in-Red-White-Blue-or-Green-/202155393064?_mwBanner=1

Do those NiteStrike jams not fit on the Frabill Arctic Fire tip ups?
