MTBR Light Meter Measurements:
This light measured 11 lux on our ambient Mtbr lux light measurement facility. In an integrating sphere, this light measured at 92 lumens. The Mako 2 on the other hand measured 5 lux and 46 lumens in our lab tests. Clearly, the Mako 2 is twice as bright as the Mako 1 at $50 vs $40.
- $50 is a good price point for 92 actual lumens
- Cree LED and reflector is good to have at this level
- Quick release mount is very good for a commuter level light
- The beam pattern is very narrow.
At $50, we give it a big thumbs up. Get a hand 4 pack of rechargeables and charger if you intend to use this light regularly.
