View all from Hope
Season : ALL
Code : HLN2LUSUK
The universal mount LED light boasts some impressive features. Beautifully machined, this tiny light packs a big punch with it’s twin high power LED’s pushing out 480 lumens.This mounts to the NEW lightweight reinforced nylon handlebar bracket, which fits both standard and OS bars with the clever use of removable rubber plugs. The bracket also allows lateral
adjustment of the lamp unit whilst riding.
The small Li-Ion battery pack is now held in a custom made PVC case. The battery has built-in charge, discharge and short circuit protection. The connectors are fully sealed and totally waterproof (IP67). The light has a simple on/off mode switch on the back. This has a new cycle programme, which turns the light on in ‘low’ mode and cycles through to the higher settings. This gives better control of the light in tricky situations when more light is needed quickly.
In tests the 7.4v Li-ion battery will last for up to 30 hrs + on low and a minimum of 2 hrs* on the high setting with the intelligent charger returning that in just 3 hours. The PVC case option is small enough to fit under most stems, top tube junctions or slip into a hydration pack or jersey pocket.
The 2 LED model now utilises ‘thermal throttling’ techniques to increase the longevity of the LEDs and prevent damage to the electrical circuit due to overheating. This works by monitoring the temperature of the Aluminium heat sink and restricting the power when it reaches a critical level, thereby keeping the casing at an acceptable temperature for handling while providing extended battery burn times by reducing the amount of energy lost through heat.
