Revolution Vision 300 Rechargeable Front LED Light
Revolution Vision 300 Rechargeable Front LED Light
Best buy in 300 lumen LED bicycle lights.
Named for its best-in-the-business Cree LED’s 300 lumen output, the Vision 300 stands out for its self-contained (no external battery pack) design simplicity and its reassuringly solid construction. When you need to access the battery to recharge it, simply unscrew the lamp’s machined alloy body and the battery pops out.
To create a better bicycle light, we selected the finest ingredients. The Lithium-Ion fast-charge battery and the Cree XP GR5 LED (as spec’d by the likes of Exposure, Lupine and NiteRider) are a guarantee of reliable performance. Its 300-lumen output helps make you a more confident night rider, off road or on. Even in 90-lumen, 10-hour run time economy mode, the Vision 300 will be among the brightest bike lights you'll see on the street this winter.
The Revolution Vision 300 is self-contained. The Li-Ion battery is stored inside the body of the torch - no external battery pack required. The lamp clicks into or off its handlebar bracket in a second. This arrangement is far more convenient for commuting compared with being obliged to remove, say, dual headlamps and frame-fit battery pack whenever you stop to do some shopping, as was the case with first generation high-power bicycle lighting systems.
- The XP GR5 LED is manufactured by Cree. This American company are generally reckoned to be the world leaders in LED technology.
- Self-contained cordless design - no external battery pack.
- The lamp's full-metal body inspires confidence. Grab it with both hands and twist to access the battery when you need to recharge it.
- 3.7V Li-Ion battery.
- Smart handlebar bracket. Slot the lamp in pointing sideways: a 90 degree twist and it's absolutely secure.
- Low battery alert.
- 5 Output Modes: 300 Lumen Full Power constant beam, 180 Lumen standard beam, 90 Lumen Energy-Saver constant beam, Quick Flash and Slow Flash.
- Turn on by holding the button down for 2 seconds, hold for 4 second to engage flashing mode, slow flashing mode or return to full beam. In either mode pressing and releasing the button switches between the three power options.
- Quick Charge Time: 3 hours.
- Run Time: 3.5 hours (Full Power), 5.8h (Standard), 10 hours (Energy Saver).
- Weight: 100g (lamp) + 46g (Li-Ion battery) + 26g (bracket) = 172g.
- Edinburgh Bicycle support recycling electrical equipment.

|This is a really good very bright light and good value. However, I can only give this positive review after having the light changed twice. The first light would not turn off, remaining on with a dull glow and the second would lose its charge after a week or two when not in use. This suggests to me that the quality control is not as good as it should be. My third light is brilliant and works really well for unlit road commuting in tandem with a Fenix PD30 torch (another excellent low cost light). Both faulty lights were changed promptly and without question by Edinburgh Bicycle Coop - thank you!|
|I have had this light for three months now and I am very pleased with it. This is a very bright light, for which it is reasonable to believe it reaches that stated 300-lumen output at full power. Compared to a 100-lumen torch I have, this light appears more than twice as bright. The light's pattern is good - wide, with the intensity of the light quite even across the beam, offering good central and peripheral vision. On constant, the light is bright enough to light up your way on dimly lit or unlit roads. It is powerful enough to light up the surface a good distance in front of you. Commuting in the city on the dark winter lights, I felt this really got me noticed. Vehicles see you coming, and on several occasions stopped for me coming in the opposite direction when i was turning right. I tend to use it on 'energy saver flash’, which is less bright but plenty bright enough. On this setting it lasts several hours. I have used it on full power beam in bad weather, or on those nights when every driver seems to have lost their minds / fallen asleep etc. However the battery life on this setting dramatically reduces, but given the light the lamp kicks out I can understand why. Apparently its battery life is comparable to similar lamps. Pedestrians also notice this light and it seems to reduce the occurrence of them stepping out in front of you etc. Operation is by pressing the button to 'cycle' through the various modes, which takes a bit of getting used to, but is easy once you know how. Charges quickly in a few hours with the supplied charger Another good features is the bracket, attach the bracket permanently, then twist the lamp on and off, No messing about with silicon straps, click in/out fixings, etc. I’ve had no problems with the bracket coming loose or the lamp not being secure on the bracket. This also makes the lamp handy as a torch (should you need such a thing). The lamp has been in the rain several times, not had any trouble with waterproofing. The only things that might improve the lamp might be: 1. Cutaway sections on both sides of the barrel and at the front to give some visibility from the side and 2: Some kind of pouch or case to carry the lamp in. It's made of metal so it has some weight, and the finish scratches a bit easily if knocking around in a bag or whatever. I would recommend this light to any commuter or leisure rider. It's not cheap, but compared to similar products, some of which are cheaper, the brightness, beam pattern and mount of this light seem superior.|
