Because a thing of LED strips that bright could almost be used as a flashlight.
They aren't the super bright LEDS.
I also bought 2 (1 red, 1 white) very bright LED flashers from the local bike store. They are designed to strap on to handlebars or seat pillars (thin silicone rubber straps). Very light, include switch and long life battery, mount easily to the bottom plate. Can see them from long way off.
