Light Meter Measurements:
The lux measurement of 135 MTBR Lux is good. Last year, it was head and shoulders above the competition but this year, everyone has caught up and delivering this much light or more at a lower price. In a laboratory environment with an integrating sphere, we measured the actual lumen output of this light to be 1240 lumens. This is about 35% lower than the claimed 1925 lumens.
- Extremely bright
- 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.
- 24 hour charge time. This charger is just not appropriate for a battery this big.
- Light head is too big and gets in the way
- Mounting unit is too small for this light
- Many other lights have caught up in brightness
This is a fun, styling exercise. It answers the question ‘What if we put all these LEDs and batteries into a single self-contained unit?’ The result is oohs and aahs.
Form factor is not that great and we’d much rather have two Toros on the handlebar. Or a Toro and Diablo. But if you want a single ultimate self-contained light, this is one of the brighter ones.
