1st bell I often rang, but corroded by being caught in the rain a few times. Current one hardly use it. Could be the routes easier ones.

I use an Aleoca bell for pedestrians. This is not the single tap one but the slightly more expensive "rrrrringgggg rrrrrrrringgg" type. One year now and still good with no rusting! But ineffective when wet.

I use the Airzound air horn for vehicles.

I've tried Daiso lights before. The clamp always breaks down easily. Most likely the bell will be the same.

Around 40 SGD if I recall correctly. I bought from ebay and they shipped to me.

Airzound air horn does not use batteries. The sound is made through high pressure air that is stored in a bottle. The bottle have to pump to around 80psi.

I pump up maybe once every two weeks to make sure I am ok. But normally it can last for around 2 months with around 10 short blasts per week.
