Poll Question

We recently had the lumen output of our MM12AUX lights tested.



The results:

Avg LED Luminous efficency = 1020 (60 degree spread)

"compares to" rating = 55W HB5 halogen

These lights are BRIGHT.

All this is a prelude to the following:

We have had a few riders ask if the lights work with a dimmer?

We did some bench testing and determined that they do indeed work with a dimmer.

While we havent had any issues with angry cagers, we are considering offering a dimmer on our website for riders that may want to control the volume of light (day or night).

Poll Question:

If you were interested in a dimmer, would you prefer -

1. Hardwired, rotary dial

-or-

2.Wireless touchpad style (brain would need to be hardwired)

Either of these could be mounted on the handlebar for easy access.

Thanks again,
-Brian

My leaning would be for the dial as it seems simpler and would give you a visual indication as to the output. But as these are the first aux lights I've had on a bike, I would not mind hearing of anybody else's pros and cons. I have been wondering about this since they are just awesome, but do make my headlight look like a candle.

How about a dimmer that you manually set at say 20-30%, but has a wire that can be connecetd to the High beams so the lights stay at 20-30% w/ the low beams but go to 100% w/ the high beams.

Dimmer - Poll

Lots of "ifs" ...
Cost ..
Size ..
Mounting options ..

But I agree with DigDig -- Simple and something that would give you a visual indication to the setting ..

Thanks for the input about the dimmer option. I got a few PM's most leaning toward the hard wired rotary dimmer. That said we should have something ready soon.

Thanks again,
-Brian

This would be my preference as well. Just a simple non-adjustable box that sets the lights at 30% while using low beam and 100% when on high beam. Something small and inexpensive that can be hidden behind the fairing or under the seat.
Being non-adjustable would probably keep the cost down.

I am happy to see that there are more and more options for LED lights coming out.
Just ordered a pair of MM12's to try out!

Cheers
