Editor’s Note: This article originally appeared on Mtbr.

The Xeccon Spiker is a light with 4 LEDs and a big hard cased battery. The beam is big and bright and it is best used as a bar light to project a wide beam pattern. A spot helmet light would complement this light nicely.

The battery is a well-protected ‘brick’ that is rated at 7800 mAH. At full power, it can light up the trail for a solid 4 hours.

Mtbr Light Meter Measurements

This light measured 120 Lux on our ambient light measurement facility. The light output measurement is performed by placing a Lux light meter beside the light. Both are pointed at the ceiling (five feet above) of a dark room. This measurement uses the ambient light produced by the bike light.

Integrating Sphere Measured Lumens

This light measured 1260 Lumens in an integrating sphere. Claimed Lumens by the manufacturer is 1600 Lumens. The Lumen-hour graph below shows how the light performs over the first three minutes of its battery cycle.

Beam Pattern Photo

The location is useful since it has walls and a ceiling that can display a bike light beam pattern. The walls have a lot of graffiti on them and actually show detail when they are lit up by a light with a wide angle. Cones and targets are set up with the far target set up at 120 feet.

    Do any of the mountain bike lights have plugs (USB or miniUSB) that would be compatible with my high capacity portable computer batteries (or vice versa)?

    Thanks, Z
