Works great to let that chick on roller blades with head phones weaving around on the bike path that you would like to pass.
Only if I were deaf or close to it. nmdzrider

This and my mirror are the two must-haves (besides helmet of course) on my daily commute. Ever tried "communicating" with someone in their SUV, windows up, A/C and radio on, after they cut you off? This puppy does it in no uncertain terms. It's lightweight, and recharging it is free.
they are great ifMJ

you ride in conditions where a friendly ping ping isn't gonna work

I had one for a while before it was stolen off my bike - it sounds like a truck horn - as it's directional it can be aimed at your intended recipient/target/victim

they're cheap, effective and eco-friendly

however they are not a friendly mode of communicating - but people scatter when you use it
for cars or walkers?PdxMark

I cross a bridge on my commute and ring a nice simple bell to alert walkers. Cars wouldn't hear my bell, but in most emergencies I can't imagine I'd find the button to blast the airhorn... Walkers would jump at the sound of a horn... I don't think it would be useful for me.
