Light Meter Measurements:

The lux measurement of 85 MTBR Lux is very useable. This measurement is on par with the Dinotte 1200L which also claims 1200 lumens  In a laboratory environment with an integrating sphere, we measured the actual lumen output of this light to be 800 lumens. This is about 38% lower than the claimed 1285 lumens.


  • Good useable brightness
  • Self contained
  • 3 hour run time
  • Great beam pattern without a hot spot
  • Very smart Smart Port can charge a phone, charge a light, power a tail light.


  • Long hour charge time.
  • $500 price is very expensive

Bottom Line:

This is a very useable and desireable light. However,  the $500 price for 800 actual lumens is not the best value.
