- Just a nod in the direction of MTB Batteries
Whilst i am aware that for many people money is the driver when making a purchase i thought that i’d share a bit of love for a fellow small business. Smudge at MTB batteries is a cracking fella!! He sold me a Lumenator approximately 6 years ago, yes it may not be the brightest in the light arms race BUT it is now in its sixth winter of heavy use, the battery is still bob on, the head unit is tiny enough for helmet mounting and bright enough for peaks riding. Last week i emailed him and bought the GoPro mount for my helmet which no makes it super adjustable! All for a cost of £4.99 delivered.Posted 1 month ago
Great product long term , support over the duration with any advice, cheap “updates”. All in 10/10 for a great Great British business. Keep up the GREAT work Smudge 🙂Mary HingeSubscriber
I have a hybrid trout light which uses an MTB batteries battery that is lumicycle fitting but with a hope connector on the light.
My old charger died after many years so needed a new one with custom connectors.
No problem, and with me in a few days, and at a great price.
Much love for Smudge and MTB batteries here too.Posted 1 month agophillconnellSubscriber
Yes, Smudge does a cracking job. I’ve had a Lumenator 2 for a while and it’s faultless: bright, directional and light with bombproof fixings and wiring. Smudge also replaced a charger for me when I accidentally connected one to the wrong light and blew one up. That’s still going strong too. Knowledge, service and all at a good price. Can’t go wrong.Posted 1 month agohardtailonlySubscriber
Agreed with all the above. I had one of the V1 lights back in the day, it was the first light I had when I first started night riding and opened up a new world for me of riding opportunities whilst having a young family. Think the lead split about 2 years after I got it and Smudge replaced it FoC. Got a replacement battery pack at a reasonable price about 4 years in. Shame some scrote pinched it from the commuter whilst locked up for 10 minutes outside the hospital. Got a Lumenator now, which is excellent.
Had other lights over the years, including several cheap Chinese eBay specials, and also a couple from Torchy, which have been ‘Okay’, but when the light developed a fault after 13 months, just wasn’t interested. Have also found his battery packs have not lasted any longer than most of my Chinese eBay lights.Posted 1 month agoStirlingCrispinSubscriber
