|Description||This is Busch & Muller's premium version of the new LUXOS front light which is the first Lumotec with the new ground breaking IQ2 technology. Busch & Muller have designed a new combined light and reflector which has a light field twice as wide as previous LED head lights. The LUXOS illuminates an area that is several times larger with maximal homogeneous output. In Busch and Mullers own words: 'So wide, so far, so pristinely bright'.
The new light provides a very wide range of light, both in front of the bicycle and to the sides extending beyond the edges of the road and over 30 meters in front of the bicycle thanks to the additional LEDs which are managed electronically.
The Licht24 daytime running light has signalling LEDs shining brightly forwards. A sensor automatically switches between day and night mode.
The integrated buffer battery that supplies the charging current not only has the task of supplying the USB port. It also powers the flood and parking light functions. To fully charge the backup battery, you require 20 minutes at a speed above 17 km/h without a USB device connected and with lights switched off. The Luxos is then optimally prepared for operating/charging a USB device within its capabilities
The Luxos U is not comparable with a normal mains charger for mobile devices, it supplies devices with power. currently this may suffice for charging applications at high current loads, sometimes it is just enough to slow down the battery use. The higher the speed the more charging current is potentially available. At slow speeds, the buffer battery in charging mode cannot recharge because only limited energy is available from the dynamo (about 3 W at a speed of 15 km/h). Some mobile phones however, use up to 5W. This means that the cache battery is charged first, without that no power is supplied via the USB output. Once a certain state of charge is reached, the output will switch to the USB. If the mobile phone empties the battery, the power supply to the USB output is switched off at its minimum charge level and the buffer battery is only recharged. With these breaks in charging some USB devices indicate with the 'start of charging' sound.
If you are looking for a headlight that is the best of our IQ headlights in terms of brightness, width and homogeneity in the shadows, and during the day when the light is off the current is used to recharge USB devices as an added function, then the Luxos U is the right choice.
