When you already have a great light, it can be hard to improve on it. Other than adding more lumens, of course. As the light output arms race continues, Niterider has once again increased the output of their self contained Lumina Boost series with three new lights.
Now offered in the OLED 1100 Boost, the 1100 Boost, and the 900 Boost, the lights are all a step up from the previous OLED 950 Boost, 950 Boost, and 750 Boost. The main difference between the two 1100 models is the addition of an OLED screen that shows light mode, battery life, etc, though both have up to 18h run time and weigh in at 172g. The 900 cranks up the light to almost 26hs depending on the mode, and charges a bit faster too. All three lights have a quick charge mode with a 1amp charger, and a normal charge time that is about double with a 500ma charger. Pricing is set at $149.99 for the OLED 1100 Boost, $99.99 for the 1100 Boost, and $79.99 for the 900 Boost.
For a bonus little feature thrown in, the lights now have a walk mode which drops the lumens down to 70 or 45 depending on the model for the longest run time – which should be good for walking the dog at night, using at camp, etc.
While we’re on the subject of lights getting more powerful, the new Sabre now checks in at 80 lumens – up from 50. While far from their brightest tail light, the Sabre is their lightest by far at just 28g in weight. Run time ranges from 1:30 – 10:30hrs depending on the mode, and the Li-Po battery is micro USB rechargeable with a $29.99 price tag.
Apparently, the Lumina Photo Pack isn’t super new, but it was news to us. The kit includes three different mounts for the bottom of your Lumina series light that will work with a camera’s Hot Shoe mount, a tripod/magnetic mount, as well as a simple clip for hooking to your belt, pocket, ect. There’s also an included diffuser lens which could be used for lighting up the scene for a photo though it’s not compatible with the Lumina Micro. The whole kit sells for $19.99 and could help you get more use out of the lights you already own.
