Bright And Well Made

Prosa bright, quality item
First off, this light is a lot smaller than it looks in the picture. It is still very bright and extremely well made. The cable going into the light is fixed so it can't be replaced but I doubt you will ever have to. The connectors are not fitted but it doesn't require a degree in rocket science to do this yourself. Overall, I am very happy with this produce and would highly recommend it.
Nice Bright Light But A Shame It Doesn'T Come With The Connectors Fitted

Consshould come with the connectors fitted
Prosbright, small light
It's a really nice, bright little light but to fit it you really need a set of crimping pliers and a heat gun (I had no luck with a hairdryer). On top of that, although it comes with two sets of connectors you may find that you need more than a couple of attempts to get the hang of making the crimped joints.

If you plan on doing it yourself and you're not used to making crimped joints I'd strongly recommend getting the 9.99 kit of connectors and heat-shrink tubing. You can buy the tubing quite cheaply, but the connectors only seem to come by the thousand.

Once you've attached the connectors, the connection to the light is neat and easy to make.

ProsWorks flawlessly.
I'll make it simple. If you have a dynamo head lamp, buy this. Got mine when they were first made available, fitted it, and haven't thought about it since. It just works and work well it does. Can't recommend it enough :)
Questions & Answers (5)
Would this be suitable for use with the Edelux II DC front light (part number 35779L140)?
24 Jun 2018
Unless fitting to an E bike the DC light will not function with a Hub Dynamo and therefore will not power this light correctly, if you are using this on an Ebike it will be suitable, if you are using it on a hub dynamo, and change the light to the non DC version it wll work fine.

Ok with Brompton with a rack ?
21 Mar 2018
Would I need any other wire than the one included in this set to connect this back lamp to a son wheel with edelux 2 ?

Does it fit a Bompton with rack ? Without rack ?
Hi there,

You will need a slightly different mount as the brompton rack does not have two holes for this to be attached, but otherwise yes this should go straight on.

On/off at same time as edelux 2 using manual switch?
07 Mar 2018
does this switch on/off with the manual switch on the schmidt edulex 2, or is it always on regardless of the on/off setting up front?
Hi there,

Yes the front light switch will control the rear light if it is piggybacked.

Does This Light Have Over Voltage Protection?
18 Nov 2016

As the rear lights piggy back off of the front lights they don't have any over voltage protection as the front light has over voltage protection and prevents any excess reaching the rear light at all.

What Is The Length Of The Supplied Cable?
10 Nov 2016
I'm mounting the light on a long cargo bike. How long is the supplied cable? Can it be extended, and if so do you sel an extension kit?

The cable is 196cm in length. There is no extension kit, but you can extend it be splicing another cable to it and covering the connection in shrink wrap.
