    No new lights...just got new n-white LEDs installed by Action!

    Decided to upgrade my now older Gemini Xera and Duo with 4000k neutral white LEDs. They turned it around in a few days and the cost was very reasonable vs. new lights. Just something to consider if you have lights and want to try the warmer LEDs. Can't wait to ride with them tomorrow night.

    Thanks for starting this thread! I've been thinking about upgrading some of my older better quality lights (Gemini, Gloworm) along with some the less expensive but maximum enjoyment lights (BT21) but my eyes have gotten so bad for close up work this is probably my best option for emitter swapping. Looking forward to hearing how you like the tint swap and this service in general.

    Service was on-point. Whole process back/forth including shipping time was less than a week. Cost was v. reasonable. Highly recommend.

    Most of the reasonable quality light's can be modded - sometimes it requires changing the optics or custom mcpcb, but usually it's doable.

    One of the nicest lights for a mod are DiNotes. You can triple your light output and improve light quality in a reasonable price.

    I opted for the nw on the refurb sale for xs/x2 from Action. Well with it. I don’t own a cool white bike light cept for a KD XHP70 light that gathers dust. This is a great service offered!

    Jim converted my riding buddy's old Duos to neutral when I bought my Gloworms with neutral tints. Fast turn around and cost effective.

    Nice! When you buy nice lights they last and are worth the little bit of money to upgrade IMHO. I was thinking of just getting some of the new Gloworms but will hold off for now after this upgrade.

    I did the same to 2 sets of Glowworm x2 lights and the neutral white is a huge improvement. Very happy with the whole upgrade process.
