Just got two new lights in from Germany to test out. Haven’t wired them up yet, but here’s some initial impressions:
Trelock LS 905
Same size as a Cyo. Has nice quick-connectors for wires. Feels solid with an aluminum housing (the silver part) all the way around the light (also available in black and colors). Extruded aluminum bracket is a nice touch. Only has a single LED for main and standlight. Reflector is straightforward and doesn’t try to do any side lighting. Beardo reflector comes off. Switch is covered by a silicone protector and seems to have two positions, though I haven’t figured it out yet. Nothing on it seems like it could break off, though like the Cyo the mouting tab on the housing is plastic. Seems like it could be a solid option in ~70 lux range.
Axa Luxx 70 Plus
A little bit taller than the 905. Plastic brackets are bulky but contain a built-in USB charger. Feels like it’s all plastic, including the top piece above the LED that you would expect to be metal for use as a heat sink. Even worse, that piece has a flimsy, slightly loose attachment and appears to be easy to break off. Has a main Cree-style LED for lighting, and two simple white LEDs for the standlight. There are side windows for the standlight LEDs. Beardo reflector appears to be removable. The USB charging socket is on the right side so that would make it hard to access if mounted under a rack on the left side. One might be able to flip the bracket piece over (edit - nope). Has a simple slider switch on the back that switches between lighting or charging. You can’t run both at the same time. Seems like a poor man’s Luxos where you trade the wiring problems for chintzy construction.
