Luxx70 Plus Steady Switch by AXA-Stenmen
If you're familiar with the Lumotec U, it's the Busch and Mueller front dynamo light that also has USB charging built into it. A few weeks ago, I saw someone here mentioned they bought something called a Luxx70 which does the same thing - dynamo light + usb charging. The Busch and Mueller version has a few drawbacks:
- Expensive - $247 from Peter White Cycles, and that's without shipping included
- Huge - it's a seriously huge light. A local bike shop where I live (Calhoun Cycle) carries them, and I was thinking of getting one, but I saw it in person - it's a big light. Looks ok on a fat tire cruiser, but out of place huge on a regular road bike (which is what I commute on).
The Luxx70 on amazon, on the other hand:
- $150 (free shipping)
- Appears to be normal sized (like a Cyo), though can't say for sure from the pic.
Both are rated at 70lux. According to the Luxx70's page it meets German lighting regulations (so a shaped beam with a cutoff), is waterproof, etc etc -
Anyone else have any info on it?
