    Anonymously, of course...

    I don't care how much I get down voted, I still thank that Gloworm have done the right thing in sending me a free V2 replacement (free post) for a failed unit without any questions, RMA numbers or crap like that: They just gave me a China address. I put the light head in a bag and send it COD.

    sheesh.... Doesn't this idiot know that products fail, even good ones... ESPECIALLY PRE-RELEASE V1 products...

    Still, we all knew what we were getting into when we paid for an unreleased, unproven, untested light: Fun and excitement along with the risk!

    OK, so I'm just cheesed off at being negatively repped....

    /RANT
    Some people just want to watch the world burn. And yes the repping feature is retarded. I am pleased with my V1 and it's performance. I've had plenty of pricey name brand lights fail so I usually buy cheapo stuff and consider it disposable. Heck my first magic shine is still running. But the Gloworm was too good of a deal to pass up.

    Graxxor, I sent a positive rep too, but I couldn't add a comment b/c my silly Android tablet is not cooperating with that function. Good to hear that gloworm took care of your issue. Mine did have that faulty extension cord issue initially, but gloworm took care of that super fast. So far everything is still good with my light. I have grown to love the wider beam of the X2 light, but still want a bit more throw. I think the new X2 should be right on the money. I ordered an extra spot, but from beam shot photos I may be happiest with the spot/flood combo as the extra flood is nice on some technical trails I ride. I have been out night riding 4 out of the past 5 days and loving every minute of it. I also love how X2 is about half the weight of my previous helmet light. I don't notice the weight at all, whereas with the old light I always did.

    P.S. When the new X2 arrives, I was thinking about doing a ride with both X2s and also my Lupine Betty and Wilma. We're talking over 5,000 lumens combined.

    Ah, yes, I speculated soon after first using the lights that the cable's entrance/exit point to the light would be a weak point as there appears to be little reinforcement... perhaps for a different reason though. I thought that the cable would suffer from bending and breaking, with repeated use, whereas I was informed that the cable may have come loose from the internal PCB
    O_o

    I did notice that the hex nut where the cable enters the unit was loose, whether or not that had anything to do with it...

    I am still using the X2 1st ed. with the double ellipticals as a flasher and relying on my Magicshine 816 for general lighting duty. I intend to partner it with a V2 on the bars and/or helmet and if the throw is sufficient, retire the heavy and obtrusive 816.

    5000 lumens!! I presume you just point in the direction you want to travel and burn a path through...


    oh... and thanks for the props!

    So, anyone have a V2 yet, or, have any V2's actually shipped yet?
    My order still shows processing.

    I just logged in at the gloworm site and my order says processing approved, but nothing about shipping yet.

    They will likely all go out at once. Hopefully they get shipped next week. Keep in mind they just got all the pre-orders in and are likely swamped.

    My original intent was to use the X2/V1 on the commuter/road bike bars and the X2/V2 on the MTB bars. Now I'm considering V1 on the bars , V2 on the helmet for MTB'ing.
    Much will depend though on just how well the throw is on the new V2. It is so nice to have options.......Is it here yet?...Is it here yet?...

    I have my V2 mounted to my helmet and a magicshine clone on the bar with a wide flood lense and found the X2 V2 was good enough by itself - throw is very good. I'll still use the bar light though because it's good for when i'm on the roads getting to and from the track, besides the more lights the merrier

    Yeah I did a first night ride the other night with the V2 helmet mounted and it is bright enough that I didn't find myself wanting for a second light at all

    Alternate Power Source

    I am curious if there is a way to wire this in directly to a motorcyle/atv battery via a switch? Is this possible? My dirt bike doesn't have a headlight, and would like to use this for night riding, but not worry about the 3-4 hour limitations of the included battery? Thanks!

    V2 shipping update

    I got a PM from Gloworm: Seems the moderators have put a limit on their posting. Word is shipping is to begin this week. Will be crossing my fingers.

    Good news about the shipping time.

    But what's up with the limit to Gloworm's posting??!! They've been super helpful in this thread, with good responses to comments/questions and useful updates.

    I think it has to do with the fact that they don't have an ad, hence the limitation on posts.

    That makes sense. I remember Gloworm saying earlier that they were going to start supporting the site. Maybe this will be a catalyst! (Well, maybe it's more a stick) As I said, it's been great to have them participate here - but then, they benefit too!

    Got 'em!

    Got my Gloworm V2s yesterday. I ordered two complete sets on 4/10, so they were about 3 weeks getting to me (Maryland, USA; Vag apologized for the backup in orders). I spent the evening experimenting with the modes and riding around my backyard. These are my first riding lights, so I don't have much else to go on. But right off the bat, I LOVE these things! The size, the modes, the output, the packaging, the toggle button -- you can tell it's all been painstakingly thought through and created to please the consumer. Looking forward to spending a couple hours on the trails tonight!
