I’ve just bought a Halfords 1600 bike light after seeing all the good reviews. On the website it advertises that there are 3 xm-l2 leds, yet the box says 1 xm-l2 and 2 xt-e leds. Is this a downgrade in quality?
A downgrade in online listing skills mostly I expect. Googling “XT E cree” brings back blurb like “best ever leds”. I’d hazard a guess that’s always been the spec and some has just see XML and 3 Leds and run with it. Perhaps the xml is better for spotlighting and the others for flood or similar?
Wouldn’t worry, battery will fail before the LEDs, you get 1600 lumens so it’ll all be good, used the ones i got last year at the weekend, honestly it was as clear as daylight for 10 metres ahead of me, a far cry from t’olden days!
@molgrips i could have, if I’d trimmed it a couple of mm, so it didn’t insert as far.
But I just cut it off completely.
Fair weather rider, and it’s underneath anyway, minimal chance of any problem in my situation.
