    Exposure Joy Stick Maxx

    OK, I know somebody out there has this light.
    It looks really interesting due to its lack of wires.
    Also puts out a decent amount of light (at least from the specs).
    I'd only use it to look into corners with my ARC on the bars.
    Gimme some feedback please.

    I briefly looked into Exposure lights. Once I discovered that you couldn't replace the batteries (you have to send the light back to the factory) and that the batteries aren't covered by any warranty, I decided to pass. Other than that, they do have a clever design.

    Bummer, I didn't know that.
    That would kill it for me too.

    why not get a single ayup?

    I know it has wires, but battery is lightweight + mounts on helmet. Puts out about 250 lumens, each of the led's is adjutable for position, and its upgradeable when they release the new more powerful (= brighter) batteries at end of the year. Upgrades are sold at cost price to exisiting customers according to the website. A single light head, battery and charger will work out cheaper than a joystick as well probably.

    Hope are bringing out an "all in one" light soon that runs on 4x AA cells and should be bright with good runtimes...and you can refil it from any store!

    The other one to look at are the Fenix L2D Q5 Cree torches that take 2x AA and give 175lm for 2.4hrs on one set of batts (and have other power settings) Just ordered one from Fenixstore.com along with a 2Fish light mount (well, 3 of them. One for the Fenix on the helmet and 2 for my home brew bar lights)

    250 lumens? I bit overrated most likely. Very lovely lights though, I'm just not sure if you'd notice they are on with an Arc shining away on the bars.

    More powerfull (higher energy density) won't mean more lumens, that is up to the emitter. They can boost the drive current, but going beyond 750 (+/-) mA only means rapid decreasing efficiency.

    If you want a self-contained unit, BR Lights also makes a very tough light. It's a bit heavy but very low and spread out over a larger surface area of the helmet. As odd as they look, I like them a lot.

    tried that.

    I tried the L2D as a helmet light and it certainly is bright but the beam was too tight for my liking. I keep it in my Camelbak attached to a 2Fish handle bar mount for backup.

    Really? Then what is this "Lifetime warranty on LED and 2 year on rest of unit." I take the "rest of the unit" part to include the battery.
