- Lumicyle XPG upgrade… worth it still? Lumi SYS4 Can it be trouted??
Hi Trout, not sure if there is a link but I did speak to them about an upgrade service, If I remember correctly they would put their latest LED’s (XPG) in my SYS4 for around £95.
They said it would need new LED’s and driver etc, (included in the £95 cost). Does this sound reasonable? I’m not sure if this would give me a comparable lamp, with one of the current systems out at the mo.Posted 5 years agotroutSubscriber
That’s a pretty pricy upgrade but as I can’t seem to find what is in your existing light
it’s hard to give an opinion .
but it does use standard stuff so a swop out of the driver and led / optics and replace with Xmls
new driver and probably switch I guess I could come in a fair bit under that price
and you would then get a measured possible high beam of 2600 lumens. with a pretty nice beam pattern.Posted 5 years ago
Has anyone sent their lamp back for the XPG upgrade? I have a SYS4 from a few years ago, thinking about the XPG upgrade but with crop of magicshines / gloworms X2 I’m wondering if my money would be better spent elsewhere.
Or can trout turbo charge my SYS4 for the same ££?

Hi Trout, sorry I got my wires crossed…
Thought you meant a link to the upgrade offer.
I can’t find a link on Lumi’s page for the SYS 4 anymore.
Here is a link to a old review:
LINKY – muddy moles
The head unit is based on 4 Cree XRE-R2 LEDs currently. I’d be Very interested in sending it your way if its an option. Cheers GPosted 5 years ago
Hey Tony, hope you don’t mind me referencing your MM blog. Nice write up/review, it was very influential in my light choice at the time.
I did contact Lumi last year, fairly sure it was around the £95 mark IIRC. I doubt if thats changed as their current light is still the XPG model.
If Trout can so anything with it I guess that would offer much more “bang per buck”… I’ll keep you posted!Posted 5 years ago
