    What type of connector is on the head? Will it be compatable with lupine batteries by chance?

    It works with Magicshine compatible batteries (Geomangear, Magicshine, etc). I won't work with the 880 battery well though because Magicshine changed the connector for some strange reason and if you plug a typical MS connector in to it its not waterproof.

    Would you by chance be able to snap some beamshots using the elliptical lens? And please bear with me on the stupid question I am about to ask, but can you please explain the lens setups in general to me? There is only one lens that covers the entire front of the light correct? When you are saying that you can switch between spot/spot and spot/flood, is that be physically switching out the one and only main lens, or is it done by the remote selector somehow? Just trying to fully understand how this works before putting my order in and picking the wrong options.

    I believe there are separate optics on both of the emitters. To change beam patterns you have to physically switch the optics.

    By the way...To Gloworm, if you want to include one of those new elliptical optics with my order that would be sweet. If not I guess I'll order one at a later date.

    Hi Everyone

    Well progress is going well and we are still on time - in fact we maybe early with shipment

    @ndisgii - Unfortunately we will not be able to get any beam shots of the elliptical lens until we have finished production. At this time we will post all the photos everyone has been waiting for - batteries, elliptical shots, packaging...the lot. I did however test the eliptical lens when determining the best type of lens. I can say it throws out to about 30deg and the vertical path of the beam pattern is significantly reduced.

    @Cat-man-do and ndisgii - There are two optics contained beneath the front plate (we have been referring to these as lenses. Where in fact they are optics. The optics are held in place by the pressure of the lens thats sits on top and then is held down by the front plate. The o-ring sits beneath the edges of the lens to provide waterproofing. Greek?

    @cue003 - The connectors are compatible with magicshine/gemini etc.

    @Anaerobic - I'm not familiar with that light, however a quick google search told me all. I can safely say that the X2 will out-shine this particular unit.

    BATTERIES - We have now added the option of 1 or 2 spare battery packs (5800 mAh Hard Case)

    Cheers

    Bear in mind that if you use a battery other than the Gloworm one, you will not have any battery level indicators as they are on the actual battery.

    Yes, you are correct. There will not be any reaily visible indication of battery life without the use of the Gloworm Battery. However you will get a low voltage warning indicated by a quick flash of the main light when the voltage reaches 6.5v.

    I was about to place an order for 2 lights and started wondering if it's worth the extra $60 for the battery? I already have a spare battery pack from the knock off magic shines. And they're also available for $20 for extra ones. What do you guys think?

    The standard 4-cell knock offs are likely not that big. I'd go with the Gloworm battery If I were you. Of course you can try the knock off battery and see how it works. You can always buy the battery afterward if needed but it will likely cost a bit more doing it that way.
    ( If you got something 5200mAh or over you should be good )

    Yeah buying it later would cost quite a bit more as it would be $70 plus shipping so I probably won't go that route. It's now or never . The one I currently have is sold as 8.4v 6400mAh Battery. Someone must have tested these battery packs....

    My opinion on this is that Gloworm has quoted the battery pack as 5800 mah pack using Panasonic batteries. My thinking is that they are using the 2900mah NCR Panasonic. If this is true (and I hope Gloworm can confirm this), then those are some of the best 18650 batteries out there and the pack is worth getting.

    I just placed an order recently without the pack and just the lighthead only because I have a flat sytle 5800 mah pack with Panasonic NCR that I am planning to use with it.

    You're on the mark colleen! 2900mAh Panasonic Cells combined to make a 5800mAh battery pack.

    If we buy 2 lights and one battery will a Y cable be supplied?

    I am also very curious to see what the headstrap/headlight configuration looks like and I hope the same amount of detail has been out into the design of the head strap to account for switch and battery. Looking to possibly use this for running but may need a smaller battery configuration to save a little weight and reduce bounce.

    Last quick question... On the link in your signature it says that the light will come with the spot/flood setup as default and the extra spot lens will be included..... But when I go to the website to look at ordering it is asking what I want for an extra lens (free). Is the extra lens a 2nd free lens above and beyond what was mentioned with spot/flood and extra spot included???


    Thanks.

    Good question, I know originally it was stated in a post from Glworm that an extra (free) spot lens was going to be provided for all orders, but then I think the eliptical lens came along which may have changed things, so the ordering page now offers a choice of the 1 extra free one being a choice of the three (spot, flood or eliptical)

    edit: post #48 from Vag was the original mention of the extra spot lens being included for ALL preorders

    Bruce, since it was mentioned that the first orders might go out before the 20th, could you please give us a heads-up when the first orders finally ship? Also since they are coming directly from China...anyway you can give us an idea on what day they will reach the USA? I just want to try to plan ahead of time so I can make sure I'm home when UPS guy ( or whoever ) comes knocking.

    Hey everyone - well it is official, the first orders will be leaving 20th Jan, on time. Sorry we couldn't get them out before.

    However from the 20th expect delivery in about 5 working days. We will supply tracking numbers as they come to us.

    Now for some answers:

    The extra lens is your choice. You can make the selection at time of purchase. You will get 3 lenses free - the 2 in the light and the free one. Additionally you can choose to purchase another lens/optic to make a complete set.

    Y-Cable - Unfortunately we do not supply a Y-cable with 2 lights, however this is a great idea. It is something we will plan to offer in the future.

    Headstrap - Yes we have put a lot of thought into the headstrap, it has 25mm elasitc, utilises the helmet mount and has cable guides for the cable. However, something had to give - we haven't managed to finish this accessory . For those who have ordered - Don't worry! We'll send the headstrap free of charge very early february......sorry.

    And now for the proof.......a few shots of the finished products!





    Cheers

    Hi Bruce/Vag,

    I haven't followed this thread as closely as I should have been since the preorder placement. It seems as though an elliptical lense is now an option. Can I make a request (albeit last minute, sorry) to have the spare optic switched out for an elliptical?

    Hi guys, a question, does the remote switch have any way of attaching firmly to bars - stem - helmet? One of the earlier photos appeared to have a velco tie holding it in place on a piece of bar, the recent photo shows no velcro etc. Is there a slot in the base of the switch or some way to fix it in place?
    (I'm not familiar with other remote switches and mounting options, just trying to work out in my head where and how I'm going to put things on my bike

    cheers

    Hey tb123,

    The switch has velcro attached to the base. We then supply you with a strip of velcro to customise where you wish to place the swtich. To supplement this (although it is not needed) you could use a cable tie.

    Shipping update

    Hello from Athens, Greece

    I'd like to update you about shipping since some last moment (good I believe) decisions were taken.

    • The lights to Europe and Japan has been already send out this week. Tracking are send as we speak.
    • The lights to NZ and Australia has been send to Bruce in New Zealand and he will send to you.We expect them to be there earlier than Monday unless anything unexpected happens.
    • The lights to USA, Canada and South America has been send to our partner in USA who will send to you for us with USPS Priority. We expect them to be there before Monday unless anything unexpected happens.
    • The lights to Greece were delivered today by me. I am sure that soon the guys will be around to give the first comments.


    All the above mentioned shipments are with DHL in order to avoid delays. We took the decision not to send many small packages for the following reasons:
    • We want to handle the customs clearance for you. We know it is very annoying paying extra fees.
    • Chinese New Year may cause problems and delays to small individual shipments. We did not want to risk big delays.


    Basically that means that it will take some more days till you get your USPS Priority tracking number but on the other hand you can forget any headaches that international shipment may bring to you.


    Some more good news is that some extra lights was send to USA so that Chinese New Year will not stop you from having your light on time in case you decide to purchase within the next 10 days.

    On behalf of the Gloworm Manufacturing Team,
    Vag

    As Vag said, i got the light a few hours ago. Stay tuned for some real life and real garden comparison pics. The most important thing is that they exist!
    Thanks Bruce and Vag for an awesome design and product! Really a lumens beast in a small package....

    EDIT: i had set the wrong exposure time @ 1/6 of a second instead of 6 seconds.... It just looked like an overkill, sorry everyone!

    So, here are the comparison pics:

    Control Shot:


    Triple Xpg @ 1 amp Taskled driven,neutral white spot optics:


    Gloworm highest:


    Gloworm Low:


    Triple MCE @300mAh each low:


    Triple MCE @650mAh each high:


    P7 light with Ledil Iris lens high:


    not - Standard MTBR camera settings (EDIT: i had set the wrong exposure time @ 1/6 of a second instead of 6 seconds.... )

    Rig setup (just to make sure)






    I could do with a bit of a warmer tint, but it's fine as it is. After all, i mostly use yellow lenses even at night.
    Button switch might be a tad on the small side, i dunno how it will feel with a glove. Moreover, i would love these guys building a self contained light......

    How hard are you driving the 3 up XPG's compared to the quazzle unit?

    I can't say the exposure rate on your camera is doing the light justice. On the other hand it still allows a good comparison if you know what the other lights are capable of. I own a triple XPG as well and it completely rocks so don't let the beam pics here fool you. In actual use it is going to be much brighter than what these pics show. Nice to see though that the X2 can put many of these lights to shame.

    I'm glad you posted a picture of what the remote looks like in actual use. I'm a little disappointed that the ( single ) feed wire to the remote might not be long enough to span the distance of the handlebars ( from over the stem ). My handlebars are long. When I measure from the outside of the stem to where I want the remote the wire needs to reach about 21-22cm. I will be mounting the light directly over the stem. As much as possible I want most of the wire along the bar to be flush with bar. I will use Velcro tie-downs to accomplish this, that is as long as the wire is long enough. My worry hat is on. Just in case I have to extend the feed wire am I right in assuming the feed wire ( to the remote ) has only two internal leads?

Just in case I have to extend the feed wire am I right in assuming the feed wire ( to the remote ) has only two internal leads?
    Errrrr, yes guys, i kinda messed the exposure (already edited my post) , i set the camera at 1/6th of a second, as compared to 6 whole seconds. It would have been an overkill......
    Remote wire is short but you can use the extension of the power lead and it's less of a trouble on the helmet.....
    More pics tommorrow....

    Hey Cat,

    I'm not sure where giant lander placed the light for testing however the specification for that length is 19cm. The feed wires are dual core.

    When we determined the length of cable from light to switch it was based on a 780mm Chromag Foobar. The light mount was close to the left side of the stem, then we placed the switch on the stem side of the controls.

    Cheers

    Wow, those photos had me worried at first!

    I assume you can just rotate the light over 180 degrees depending on if you want the cables exiting right or left of the unit (or if you want the mount on the right or left of the stem)

    How long is the wire that comes out of the lamp before it reaches the remote/battery cable junction?...duh, Let me clarify.....How long is the wire from the remote ( switch ) to the lamp head. That should tell me all I need to know there. Then...how long from lamp head to the battery ( without using an extension ).

    I have to say the beamshots he took are much closer to reality then the mtbr 'standard settings'. I feel like the mtbr beamshot standards need updating with the high output stuff we are running now.

    From personal experience, USPS to Canada sucks. I haven't found a way to track it and shipping times vary greatly. It's a big hit and miss. Sometimes items from the US can take LONGER then items from Hong Kong which is just pathetic. I've had an envelope from Rochester New York take 21 days to get to Brampton, ON. It's a 3 hour drive. USPS Priority from Texas has taken 15 days. Nothing has ever come within 7 days. Could be my luck but that's my experience with USPS to Canada.

    Now I make sure everything is shipped via FedEx or I just wait for family and friends crossing the border.

    Just for reference, the beamshots look a better on my PC than they did on my iPad, stil not as bright as expected though considering what appears to be a fairly small backyard and comparing them to the earlier beamshots lighting an open area by Gloworm

    The light is beautifully small and it works nice !!!

    Vag himself brought it to me , taking his vacation at home, Greece .

    It's solidly made and the cable from the output of the light to the press switch is 21 cm

    I 've "tested" yesterday, and everyone in a massive crowd of 1000 cyclists was amazed ...(me too)
    I also have a triple XPG light as Giant Lander , and the color of the beam is more warm and it looks a bit dimmer , compared with X2 ...

    Bruce and Vag have done nice work.

    The remote switch is a nice touch , and you do not have to leave a hand from the bars to change mode or to turn it on/off.

    The 4 programs are to ...be discovered , as I am searching the best to suit my needs ...( In flash mode you can make other motorists to curse you !!!

    More in a while !

    I took a look at my other light that uses a remote. It is 19cm long. While it works, I always wished it was another 3cm longer. With the X2 it really is going to depend on just where the wire exits the light head. If it exits near the right side of my stem ( I'm right handed ) there should be just enough to get by. I'm crossing my fingers.

    I did not manage to get proper mtbr settings beamshots but i got you some product information in these pics:

    Handlebar measures 73cm end to end. You can't flipflop the bar mount and i thing that's the best mounting place. You can always put the button on the left side (probably my choice) or on the light itself....

    Less possible rattling/carbon love i suppose:

    Vag,

    The USPS choice for Brazil is by far the best choice, thanks a lot!

    BTW, so far I do not receive the tracking number then I suppose the lights will be with the USA partner on monday right?

    Giant Lander, Great photos! Thanks a bunch!

    Your bar set-up is very similar to mine although your stem looks a little wider. Judging from your photos I think it's going to work. I will however have to change how I set-up the battery connections. Since the battery plug wire ( from the junction ) is so short I will have to fold it back and tighten it down on the bars so it stays in place and doesn't rattle. I have lots of Velcro stripping and tie downs so no problem there. Luckily, the battery I'm using has a wire just long enough to reach the bars so it should work.

    Now as to the switch mounting itself: my set-up is a little different from yours as my Rapidfire levers look a little different....still should be able to trim a piece of Velcro stripping so that it holds the base of the switch and yet doesn't appear so obtrusive. Sure would be nice if I get mine by next Saturday ( which should be a bit warmer if you believe those extended forecasts. ). Is it here yet, is it here yet.... ( ** In all honesty, I really am in no hurry. I have lots of lights and the weather where I live is crap right now. ( snowed last night ) Need I say, cold winter weather is not my forte. )

    Hello, I ordered a Gloworm x2 with an extra spot lens for free, but now I regret that I didn't ordered an extra flood lens too. I couldn't find a way to just order a lens on your site. I couldn't send pm because I have to post minimum 10 posts here =(

    ATTENTION GLOWORM

    You might want to include the "Mode Menu" link into your signature along with the other links already there. I just printed out a copy so I could have it ready for when I finally get the light. Nice to have it on hand because I'm sure I would never be able to remember all the nice options. Anyway, here is the post link where you posted the menu's.

    Great suggestion Cat! It may appear tricky and complex but once you've had a good play it'll come naturally....

    @ Cell - I'll add the option for you or you could just email your details and I'll send another one in the post.

    Thanks for the pics Giant - great to see it in a customer's hands!

    I think you mentioned this before but there was a small change from the original menu. The original "Dim mode" used to be listed as 50 lumen but now is listed as 100 lumen. Very good, glad that was done.

    The original menu chart also mentioned run times but it seems that information is left out of the newer chart.
    I liked having the projected run times listed for each mode. Of course if you use another battery none of that would have applied anyway.

    Thanks TB123 - you got in before me!

    We thought the 50 lumens a little too low so bumped it up a bit. Its now good for packing the car, walking a bush trail, camp site etc without blinding the locals!

    Hey, something I've been meaning to ask, why is Boost mode under the Commuter program only 1000 lumen and not the full 1200L? I plan on using the Commuter mode as it suits my road riding, but feel a little ripped off not having the full banana available to scorch the Koala's out of the trees if required!

    Ah...so it does.

    Another question for Gloworm: I see that the Flash mode output was increase to 700 lumen. I'm trying understand why the run time for Flash mode is listed as 9 hrs. but the run time for Strobe mode ( 1200 lumen ) is listed as 24 hrs. ( 2 days ).

    I would think since the strobe mode is using more power and is pulsing faster than the flash mode that the strobe mode would have less run time than the Flash mode..........Any comment or explanation for that. I thought maybe it might be a type error.

    Frack the koalas, 1000lm is enough to burn eyeballs from their very sockets and with 1200lm you're likely just going to lose runtime rather than gain additional useful lighting in a commuter situation.

    Fair enough in unlit parks though.

    These lights are so reasonable, I just got over it by buying two: one on commuter, the other on something else.

    Yeah, for me it was more about descending in the hills at 70kph, going up hill and general road riding would likely be done on low modes. I guess i figured the more the merrier, but you may be right, little more usable light but less run time, although time on high would be limited i suspect.

    For those of you who were monitoring the thread trying to make up your mind whether you were going to purchase... looks like the pre-sale pricing is done.

    On the other hand, the people who jumped in with both feet early got a smoking hot deal!

    And even at the 'regular' price... this still appears to be a great price vs. performance option. So 'get your light on' and get out there riding!

    I got an e-mail the other day saying that my order has reached their new USA distributor. According to the e-mail the helmet mount might not be included with the first run but will be send out at no additional cost at a later date. I do have a tracking number but not a big deal there. I figure I should have it by Friday or early next week.

    According to Vag, my light should have reached New Zealand on Monday and has hopefully been repacked and forwarded to Australia already although Ive not received any tracking number as yet, so perhaps not. Gloworm has been quiet on this thread lately, perhaps they busy packing boxes!

    Cat-man, I believe that what they're going to send you later is the headstrap and not the helmet mount.

    Hey everyone,

    Sorry for the silence, we've been waiting on the ever reliable courier agents to let us know what's going on.

    I am about to receive all NZ/AUS orders, so will be sending those on Friday (NZ Time). Those orders will be received next week.

    For orders in the USA/Canada/South America they have been received in the US and will also be shipped on Friday (US Time).

    Initial orders outside these areas have also been sent.

    @Cat - it is the headstrap that has not been sent. You will receive your helmet mount.

    Also, Cat, strobe mode is not the regular strobe like you'r recognise from chinese lights. The strobe is an emergency pulse, like you'd see on a life jacket or other emergency beacon. Imagine very bright short pulse, then a pause. Not very fast flashing.

    Yeah, you're right, my bad. My eyes playing tricks on me again. About the strobe....Well okay, it's not flashing fast then...duh. Anyway, that being the case I would suggest calling it a " momentary emergency pulse ". Whatever...as long as it isn't too fast ( strobie ) or too slow. ( > 3 sec ).

    Were you wearing your "Gloworm" endorsement shirt during this event?
    Can't wait to get my lights. Haven't gone riding for over a week now since I sold my MagicShine type knockoffs. Come on lights! Get here already!

    Can everyone please post pics as they get them! I have a feeling I'll be the last of the bunch....

    Seems we forgot this one. I am not sure if it is already up in the website-if it is not you'll find it soon.

    Here you go:

    2 years for light head
    180 days for battery

    Nevertheless, if you have any problem after the 2 years, drop us an e-mail and we'll work out something together

    Also, for Cat, the Strobe is a quick flash seperated by a 2 second pause.

    Greets,

    A TWO second pause? At 40kph that's about 22m between flashes. yikes seems awfully slow to me. I was hoping for 1 or 2 Hz.

    Hey GraXXor,

    Sorry to alarm you!

    I'll just clarify a couple of definitions:

    Flash = 2Hz (2 flashes per second)
    Strobe = 1 flash every 2 seconds
    Dim = not very bright

    The Flash mode is incorporated in the Commuter Programme only and is designed for use in traffic etc.

    The Strobe mode is incorporated in the Adventure Programme and is meant as an emergency signal in the event the user gets lost etc. It's frequency means that the signal can be used for long periods of time (low battery drain). i.e. 2 days on a full battery.

    I hope that clears things up?

    Cheers

    @Gloworm

    Great news. My impression of a "strobe" is more of a seizure inducing affair, though... so a naming change might be in order in the documentation if others agree....

    ^^^^ I agree. The "strobe" mode might be better served being called Beacon mode.

    Emergency Flash might be even better.

    As an aside, according to DHL, mine's been stuck in Hong Kong since the 21st! Hope it comes soon.

    This sounds like it's something for me, since I'm both commuting and I like to get lost ... well, not that I like it. it just happens Good thing I got a phone with gps

    I want to replace the light that I got when I bought my bike. Doesn't have a lot of lumen.
    I'm gonna have a look into ordering yours. It seems to be such a pretty and durable lamp.

    Quick update on orders bound for NZ/Aus....

    2 packages bound for NZ were sent from our office on 18/19th, one with DHL and one with TNT. The TNT one had all the orders the DHL had 6 extra lights (without extra lenses etc).

    Now it turns out that the box that arrived (today) contained the 6 and not the orders. Word of advice never use TNT

    The TNT shipment with the orders is still enroute and was most likely held up by Chinese NY.

    In summary, I will send out the first 6 orders (on time of order) on Tuesday (its public holiday in NZ on Monday). There maybe some extra lenses missing, but these will be sent out separately FOC.

    We apologise for the delay/misinformation and will pass info as it comes to hand.

    No fault of yours. FME they are horrendous. Ask around and you'll see, they've worked earnestly to earn themselves the acronym: "Totally Not Trustworthy"

    Oh crap. I see you are sending these Fed-EX.

    Me and Fed-ex man never seem to be at the same place at the same time. I would of rather preferred "Priority Mail". With Priority Mail, if I'm not home when the postman comes knocking I just pick it up the next day at the post office ( 1 mile from my home ). With Fed-Ex I have to either "be home" or not get the shipment.

    Now I might be able to set up an advance delivery time on-line. I'll have to check on that. The last time I had something shipped via Fed-Ex I had to pick it up at their depot ( 20 miles away )...not the ideal situation.

    ( *update: I'm checking to see if the parcel can be delivered to a local "Parcel Plus" office but I won't know anything till Monday.. )

    Cat - I don't think its Fed Ex. If you put your tracking # in google it IDs it as a USPS tracking #.

    Correction, its both:

    Low Weight Residential Shipping & Returns – FedEx SmartPost®

    By utilizing the U.S. Postal Service® for final delivery, FedEx SmartPost reaches every U.S. address, including P.O. boxes and military APO, FPO and DPO destinations. You can even use FedEx SmartPost to ship to Alaska, Hawaii and all U.S. territories.

    Well my e-mail from GW said FedEx and FedEx does have the tracking number listed. I know nothing about this FedEx SmartPost or even if that is how it will be handled. I did check the USPS tracking and there is no listing with USPS.

    ( **UPDATE: syadasti, Yes, you are right. I do see it listed on the FedEx Smart Post tracking. Should arrive on Friday the 3rd. )
