    Newly redesigned BikeRay-III is coming

    After long and hard work, tests after tests on remodifications from current prototype Ray-III model sold by other(s), BikeRay USA finally got everything together on Ray-III, and will be available by end of this month.
    Take a visit to www.bikerayusa.com where you can see the pics, changes, specs beam shots, etc.
    Also offering pre-order discount.
    many parts & accessories are there to purchase along a new "Y" connector that can connect 2 batteries into one light to give 7+ hrs on High mode or 30+ hrs on Low mode.
    No more prototypes~!
    Excellent battery safety and life, Safety featured Charger, but without high price tag.

    Please consider other distribution methods also, rather than just selling direct. I'd prefer to keep small independents (Geoman) alive by buying through him.

    2nd (or 3rd) selling these through Geoman.
    I like what I have seen with this light, but regardless, I will most likely still purchase a 2nd battery from Geoman.

    So what exactly is different from the "prototypes" currently sold by GeoMan? And will it come with a crappy battery instead of the ones GeoMan ships? I'm all for saving $20 by pre-ordering but I'd rather get the right battery outright.

    If you see our front page, and talk to our current BikeRay light users, I mean any of those bikeshops listed, over 400 current users, we haven't had any issues with Chinese made batteries. No argument over German made items not only battery but cars too.
    We learned from other's failures and success as well. What to learn, and what to avoid.
    Thats not just us, but with everyone as well.
    I explained this same issue over and over many times on mtbr. I am not making up or saying our battery is better or will do something it will not do.
    All I am saying is, it will do what we are standing for. Safer than MS issue, Safer than any China made batteries, and we have tested them over and over in many different environments and it withstanded most of abuse and beyond of what we can through at it.

    That is okey for us if you want to buy from Geoman battery or anyother mid companies battery. But we are not selling any crapy Chinese made battery. It provided sefety features what we were looking for.

    Thats just fine. Buy from him.
    I don't mind at all. If I did, I probably caused some serious mess already.
    We are factory direct for USA and will do everything possible to keep the name high.

    Hey Nick~!
    Yap, we finally got everything together. Even safer battery than before, safer charger, lighter, smaller, well balanced, ... actually, it is lighter and smaller than ray-I or II., yet brighter.
    Let me know if you want to try it out one day...
    I will be glad to let you try it.

    Also you state you have a whole 400 happy customers using these NOT Chinese batteries exactly how long have these 400 people been using them a couple of months maybe?
    and what new safety feature have you built in these non Chinese batteries

    Thanks for buying an AD now you are not spaming
    Now as a consumer I myself and I am sure a lot of your potential customers are wondering as to the credibility of your batteries we have heard countless stories of new and improved and they all turn out to be horsesh*t you are not going to sell many lights on here unless you can verify the source and specs and UL # of these batteries.
    No arguing just asking for some facts

    First, I don't use mtbr as our main source to sell lights, that is if any.
    This site is just info site for us.
    Our main consumers are who tired all other lights, I mean most of lights, and tried ours as an alternative, but ended up loving it.

    Releasing more infos will cause more damages to many others including your loving ones...
    So, this is where I will end this conversation. I am sure your friends will understand and agree with me.

    Wow this is getting vicious. All I'm still wondering is...... I have seen both "editions" of br3. The only difference I'm seeing( and correct me if I'm wrong) is that the prototype is a bit bigger, and cost at the moment 20 bux more with the "mid" man. Now I'm not try to get roid rage like a few on here I just want to buy my first light asap, its getn humid in the south. So these batteries for the new bk3 are different from ur prototype in what way? I get ur company's tryn to make a buck, but were on the ol mountain bike friends forum where we all love each other and help one another. So can that guy tell me if its really worth the wait for the "new" one. Thanks

    No worries here I was just asking this guy tell us about his batteries which now days can be a deal breaker
    . I have a bikeray III and love them for the bars but you need to pair it with helmet light to get the full effect.
    now back to the battery issue the fact that bikeray usa does not want to give any info about his batteries leads me to suspect their quality.
    Who you buy this light from is of no concern of mine but when someone does not want to discuss an important piece of there package speaks volumes

    You got me all wrong SON
    That's whats so funny about the internet you cannot see the smile on someones face as they type...
    was it this or this that made you think I was mad.
    sometimes I debate aggressively to make a point, But no no anger here there's nothing to get angry about
    for the lowdown just buy it from Geoman and you will get a quality battery this other guy who knows and you will get..
    the only difference I can see is the housing is smaller on the new one which could mean it could get hotter sooner less surface area to radiate heat and the O ring bar set up which is kind of nice

    My confusion stemmed from this line on the website basically:
    "It will be shorter, lighter, easy rubber ring mount, better balanced mounting system, better water protection, and with a rubber coated battery pack with safety chip that will last without high price tag"

    I wasn't sure if it was being compared to BikeRay II or the prototype. Based on bikeray's comments here, it sounds like the line is talking about the improvements over the prototype. I think you guys should make that a little more clear on your website

    I've exchanged a few emails with Patrick at BikeRay and placed my order for 2 sets of the new BR3's.

    Been in the market and shopping for lights the past few months since I sold my NiteRider Firestorm to a buddy. Was about ready to pull the trigger on Exposure's 1200 lumen light for $500! but also been very curious about all these new lights popping up.. MS, Gemini, Cyclops, Light and Go... etc.

    Ended up going with BikeRay's because of the light design, lumen output, price and run time. I have a good feeling that they are a solid company and after the emails where he told me their warrenty/return policy, I'm 100% re-assured in my choice to purchase the BR3s.

    I know some people are still paranoid about the battery issue but I'm sure that's got to be resolved by now so I'm not worried about it.

    Anyway, I should get them by the end of the month.

    How about we take Rakuman's keyboard away for a while until he simmers down? You're more than obnoxious guy.

    Your the type of dork that scares away venders from displaying their wears on line. I like to see new stuff so quick trying to put guys in time out for sharing.
