I just run mine on the lowest power setting (flash or steady) and it's plenty bright enough without being dazzling.View attachment 547589
I'm not sure that the advertised 'retina busting' power is actually a good thing!
I was on one forum ride that finished in the dark and was doing the last descent on an unlit road after sunset. The riders in front of me had rear lights so bright that I could barely see where I was going and had to drop way back behind them. Even then my night vision was completely shot and I could still see red blobs where the lights had been, even though they were way into the distance by then.

I rode with someone else who had a super-bright Hope rear light. He ran it on a sunny day and its distinctive flash pattern was very eye-catching and not a problem in those conditions.Plenty bright enough for daytime running but has lower settings for more sociable night time illumination.
