Light Meter Charts and Comparison Table »

Strengths:

  • Incredible brightness
  • Meticulous quality
  • Excellent heatsinking in a small light head
  • Ideal 20 degree wide beam pattern.
  • Very good brightness to weight ratio
  • Good testing background with connectors, waterproofing and electronics safety

Weaknesses:

  • Not as bright as 2700 lumen claims
  • Packaging was a little rough at press time
  • Light head gets pretty hot

Bottom Line:

It’s great to have options and we have another light cannon from Germany but at better value price of $500.  It is extremely compact and light for its output so it is a great system for the serious racer or endurance rider.

Durability and performance is all there as we rode the light in all conditions and it never wavered.  The company’s two year is good and there’s an exclusive distributor here in the US that is staffed by a great bunch of guys in Bozeman, Montana.

MyTinySun is a new entry here in the US but they have been doing business in Europe for many years to outperform and deliver better value than great companies like Lupine.  So rest assured, the quality is there.

    John, sorry late to the press. But the answere to your question is that your light only makes about 1200 lumens (or possibly less). You will also find that if your light did include rechargeable batteries, it will lose the ability to hold a proper charge within a year. Within 2 years you will get less than 30 minutes on high power from it. That’s if it lasts that long. Also, your light will be very big and heavy compared to this light. And most likely you don’t have multiple modes to choose from.

    Now, it doesn’t mean that $92 for a 1200 lumen light that will last 2 years is necessarily a bad deal.
