Troutelights hope vision 2 upgrade.
I’ve got a Trout’d set of V2s and they’re ace. The only problem is they can overheat and drop down to low-power, especially if you’re moving slowly and its warm. Never a problem in winter, but I’ve had a few situations which its been a pain. Trout – can the temp threshold be adjusted?
Oh, I’ve also got a set of Solarstom x2s (for £19) which I’m going to try as a comparison for a while. Long term plan is that the X2s are going to be my spare/loaner set. The Hopes will go on my helmet and I’ll be running my Exposure Revo on the MTB once the new bolt-thru dynamo hub turns up.Posted 4 years ago
yes the threshold can be adjusted easily by your self with a few clicks and presses.
But it is there to protect the leds and driver from overheat so I would not go above 70c ( I think it could be set at 50 or 60 early ones I set to 50 later to 60 )
got hot enough to boil beer and melted the lenses onto the leds but still kept working 🙂

Just searched the emails was it this one in August
i was wondering if you can help, i loaned a mate my Mini and when he has had it he has burst the cable on my battery:( ( i have removed the extra sealing and can see where the cable has been damaged) so was wondering if you could replace the cable and then re dip the battery?
Also wondering if any of the newer led’s could be fitted to improve its output?
Let me know what you can do and how much etc.
Just put in an order for some XPG-S2 leds so will be able to upgrade it in a couple of weeks
and should be able to do the battery at the same time though be careful to label the package up properly with a Li ion label like this one with your phone number on

if your battery is still giving you good runtimes then it should be good for the new leds and driver you may lose 20 mins on full after but lower powers will also be brighter than the stock on its full
or can make it a real monster and with a 15 volt battery an english lumen count of 3600 on full
or chinese lumens 8000
How much would that cost? Is it worth it?
With just the standard upgrade how much brighter does it get?
Do you get a warrenty with the upgrade?
ThanksPosted 4 years agojimwMember
I have both V2 and ‘standard’ V4 upgrades, the V2 is subjectively brighter than a standard R4, the V4 is way brighter than it was. Had both for well over a year and have been utterly faultless, been soaked a few times and no leak issues, still on original Hope batteries. Very highly recommendedPosted 4 years ago

Email me for payment details and address to send it to
got a bit of a backlog at the moment for some strange reason 😯
be about 1/3 days from me getting the lights to turn them around
yes the Hid can be done and used to be a popular housing for the diy ers
however it is quite a time taking conversion so making it a bit costlyPosted 4 years ago
I can though do the bits in to some housings I have left over from the Dominator run which would make my job a lot easier and cheaper for you .
Mail me for more details
