What a STUPID idea,with fat mtb tyres on you can hardly see the brake pads from behind.

I used to have a brake light but it was a proper big thing with a cable that sat next to the brakes and formed a connection that turned the lights on when the brakes were pulled and touched the cable.
A great idea in theory but crap in practice!

Don't think you see it in daylight.

I bought some nice brightly coloured brake pads for one of my bikes, only when I fitted them did I realise you can't realy see them unluss you are quite close up. Hence my skepticism.
