    Those lights are about as bad as the basic Radio Shack alarm strobes. I have a storage bin and they have about 20 of them things up. On the gates and also over the camera's. Lets just say a BIC lighter puts out more light and lasts longer!

    those are horrible lights. I use some at a radio tower facility that I maintain. they are used outside the transformer room when the tower is hot they blink. even in the dark its easy to miss.

    If you look good at the top of the lens you can find a cap. take a drill and drill threw the top of the lense above that cap, you can then stick a small flat head in there and crank up the flash rate.
