New Hope Vision 4 led light with pics
 
Just got the Hope Vision 4, subjectively it's about as 2.5 times as bright as my Cygolite Dualcross Pro with both on high.
Factory specs say 960 lumen on high setting, battery life is 2.15hrs on high, 4 power settings. Battery life is much longer on lower settings. 5200 mah li-ion battery pack. Reasonably price when compared to Lupine lights

Light kit comes with charger with universal mains plug, helmet mount, handlebar mount, extra long cable for helmet use, normal cable length for bars.

Wow. Ive been looking at this. Got a Lumicycle 12w spot but it is big and bulky and not too bright. This looks very good for LED.

I've been using this on the road at night, it's actually too bright on high (level 4). So I use mine on level 2-3 with double the battery life. The lens coverage is excellent which lights up the road verges very well. The quality of the build is evident from small things like the completely waterproof connectors. for the price probably the best on the market given the light output and the design. www.wiggle.co.uk has the best prices.

Just found it on Hope Vision 4 LED for 245. Think I'll get one before winter and use the Lumicycle as a helmet light.

Looks like a fantastic acquisition, kleng. Very nice looking on several levels. Congratulations on what seems to be an exceptionally nice light. :thumb:

Good find.

Wanted to get into the Lupine range but couldn't justify the spend. The Hope and the IBLaast http://www.nightlightning.co.nz/endurenz%20details.htm, are both very similar in output to the Lupine Wilma 4 but at half the price. I think from an output point of view they both offer the best value for the money.
