Anyone got a Lumenator?
Any good? Worth the money?

You might also want to look at the gloworm x2
I have both and like the x2 better.Posted 5 years ago
It’s smaller, looks better made and you can change the optics to suit what you want.
Don’t be thrown by the claims that the lumenator has more lumens.
Who’s selling these then?Posted 5 years ago
Not sure I should order one given the reviews here 😆
Anyone know what the lead times are like on getting one at the moment. Given the terrible news listed on that site I’m guessing sending out MTB lights won’t be the guys priority at the moment – and rightly so.
Don’t want to order one and add to the guys stress load by emailing and asking about delivery.Posted 5 years ago
I ordered mine just as things happened and got it very quickly, maybe a day later than first class. Great Service.
Mine stays put on the handlebar and was good once I figured out where I wanted it pointing when mounted to the lid, had to tighten my helmet under my chin but to be honest it was the lid moving not the light or mount.Posted 5 years ago
I commute on road and offroad and its fine on low in lit roads, then kick it up in unlit roads and full on offroad… Although I did have an argument with dog walkers along the Thames path, walking their dog in the pitch black, “oooh yer lights too bright”, my reply, ‘good job! It meant I saw you and didn’t end up swimming’

Thanks – just reminded me I need to put mine on charge for tonight.

How well do they stay put with the rubber o ring?
Seems fairly firm but I haven’t used it in anger as the sweep of my bars points it out to one side 🙁 Instead I used a Hope universal clamp which does the job perfectly.

Would one of these be overkill for a roadbike? My normal evening ride of 20 miles is 10 miles with street lights and 10 miles without.
On the lowest setting ,would one of these be ok for for road use with other traffic?
I reckon so. On country lanes you’ll be able to see the potholes, in town you need the extra brightness so all in all it’s win-win 🙂
I think it’s a great light, rarely need to use on full power. My only niggle is that as you cycle between the different powers it goes from High to Off before going to Low, but I guess that’s a personal preference.Posted 5 years agoofficialtobMember

This doesnt happen on mine – I think it was changed last year at some point? I got mine in November I think, and to turn it off, you have to hold the button. If you keep pressing it, it just cycles nicely through the settings without turning off 🙂Posted 5 years agothisisnotaspoonMember
What he said, mine’s hold for off, click to cycle through modes. And the flash is speerate which is better (although I’d rather ditch it and just have up and down buttons).
I use mine as a helemet light and the beam nicely fills my field of vision rather than being a spot in the center. It’s actualy like riding in daylight!Posted 5 years agosmudgeMember
thank you for the mention and comments on the lumenator. as you may know about about my mum, 3 days after she passed away I had my dad in hospital with Pneumonia and nearly lost him as well.
over the next couple of days I will catch up on all orders and emails.
can I also thank everyone for their kind messages over the last few Weeks.Posted 5 years agoAlexSimonSubscriber
Looks like the Sanguan SG-T2200 is the same light unit (don’t know about batteries, but wouldn’t be surprised if Smudge did his own).
But there is no price saving to be had anywhere in the world, which makes it an absolute no-brainer to order from Smudge given his amazing reported customer service and STW forum presence.
Best wishes for everything Smudge!Posted 5 years agodoncorleoniMember
Customer service from smudge is top notch 🙂 had a slight issue with the original battery pack and smudge sent me another with no question at all and this one is perfect. It’s a really good, solid light and reliable – been using pretty much every other day for 2 months and its as good as the day I got it. Nice beam pattern too and more than enough light even on low.Posted 5 years ago
So I placed an order today… and then turned up at a meeting for a charity LEJOG attempt I’m doing where we were all handed MagicShine’s free of charge.
I’d have felt great being given a free MagicShine if I hadn’t just spent £115 on a Lumenator. Seeing how bright this MagicShine is I can’t wait to get the Lumenator delivered now.Posted 5 years ago
