    Marwi Nightpro Elite Dual Beam

    Has anyone use this kind of light setup.Is it any good?The Marwi Nightpro Elite system has a dual beam 20 watt flood & 15 watt high beam. The lights can be mounted and aimed separately in whatever direction you wish. It includes a remote switch for high beams, and mounts quickly on your handlebars. The runtime is 3.2 hours on 15 watt setting, and 2.4 hours on 20 watt setting.


    It comes with a Nickel hydride water bottle style battery, and "plug and forget" overnight recharger. An illuminating 35 watt dual headlamp, handlebar mounted light system with extended burn times for the serious racer. The remote switch on the high beam is within easy reach at blazing speeds. The water bottle style NiMH battery provides a strain relief for adjusting cord length. CNC machined alloy headlamp housings and quick release handlebar mount provides vertical and horizontal adjustment of light beams to adapt to all handlebar configurations.


    Here are some other features:
    *Weighs 906 grams
    *Carbon re-inforced resin brackets & quick release mounts
    *Xenon halogen bulb
    *Weather proof connections
    *NIMH batteries superior to Ni-Cad

    I had that light. It lasted for years, with occasional lamp replacements. I think I accumulated >800 hrs use on the original NiMH battery.

    It was a nice light in 2003. It's been greatly surpassed by numerous LED-based bike lights since.

    You should leave the Marwi alone, unless its really cheap, and look for a newer, brighter LED light.

    I have that light, it needs to be rewired but I love it. Mine came with a 6v SLA battery in a waterbottle.

    PS I neglected to mention the NightPro Elite was discontinued around 2007-8 - about the same time Marwi withdrew completely from the bike lights market.

    If someone is trying to sell you a "new" one, it's definitely NOS, by several years. I wonder if the NiMH battery is still usable.
