The Rapid X2 is very easy to place and use on my bike. I often ride in town, and the light output is really bright, making me feel a lot safer when the roads are busy. I haven't used it for long enough to realistically assess the battery life, but from the stats, it appears that the battery life is pretty long. I like that it has a USB recharger.

The CatEye Rapid X2 Kinetic is a 50-lumen, USB rechargeable bicycle safety light that mounts easily on your seatpost. A built-in accelerometer automatically switches into a constant burst mode when it senses a sudden change in speed. Similar to daytime running lights on an automobile, the Rapid X2 Kinetic helps make your presence known as a cyclist. 180 degrees of visibility allows you to be seen from varied perspectives.
A Battery Auto-Save feature makes sure you’re covered the entire ride by automatically switching to a flashing mode should the battery run low.With up to 30 hours of runtime, the Rapid X2 Kinetic ensures you’ll be drained from your ride long before your light is.
Built-In Acceleration Sensor for Kinetic function
*Automatically turns on High for 2.5 sec when bike deceleration is detected.
*This light does not completely work with braking. The motion sensor may not respond in some circumstances depending on the light installation location, cycling speed or weather condition. We recommend that you keep a safe distance between vehicles when cycling.
Includes Rapid X2 attachment base, one large and one small attachment band, and a micro USB charging cable.
