Small is beautiful, pocket-sized BL800C very successful, it is strong, reliable, outstanding lighting effects, long range, power source and strong endurance. The design and workmanship is very good, but you can do better.
Ferei's lights are known for their superior performance and high cost performance. They have long enjoyed a good reputation in the domestic DH and AM circles, and have also been favored by many night-riding cyclists. Their BL800C is an Enduro riding light designed to meet nighttime rides on mountain roads and high speeds in the jungle. This two-headed headlight is impressive, its shape is very compact, simple style, tough lines, and full of technology! Light weighs 114g, very light, in which two CREE XP-G power LED as light source, white light with a warm Alternatively, this test section for the type of warm light, luminous flux 550 lumens, white words is the luminous flux type 680 lumens.
The shell and bracket of BL800C are made of aluminum alloy CNC. They are firm and stable. There is a fin-type heat dissipation design on the shell. The whole shell doubles as a radiator. Hard-anodized surface, and black, red, blue, gold and other colors, not to meet Dojin preference for color. The unilateral bracket fixing method allows the light holder to be centrally mounted on the handlebar.
The BL800C is easy to install and dismantle. The quick-release aluminum alloy bracket can be quickly installed and unloaded, and the angle of the light can be easily adjusted at any time. All-metal bracket with the need to use a rubber strip, in order to achieve more stable and the effect of preventing stopper scratch handlebar holder clamp ring is 31.8mm bar design, by thickening the rubber strip can be both old 25.4mm handlebar, but it There was no support for 35mm handlebars, so a friend using a 35mm handlebar had to wait.
BL800C equipped with a power capacity of 5200mAh, the 7.4V power composition by the four lithium 18650, sufficient to allow BL800C used at full power output state of more than 3.5 hours, an output power of 50% when using the doubling time, weak light state The next more sustainable use of more than 35 hours, the power is quite enough to meet any riding needs. The power supply weighs 242g. If the power is too heavy, Ferei's small-capacity power supply can be used, but this will be at the cost of reduced work time. Charging electric power adapter with a great block, with laptop power adapter heads you win a fight. This power supply is charged electrically long time, full charge takes about 8 hours, about 4 hours may be charged to 80%.
A convenient and reliable DC connector is used to connect the power supply to the light holder or power adapter. The connector is waterproof and the power output and charging input share a connector.
Small cap very solid at a fixed all-aluminum bracket, even if encountered severe turbulence light is also rock solid, firmly fixed motionless on the handlebars.
The firmness of the light base is absolutely unquestionable. Compared to the light base, the battery pack that is tied to the frame by the nylon Velcro belt is not so secure. About 242g battery pack held by a Velcro wrapped around the upper frame tube, although then the upper portion of the battery pack with the contact frame has a non-slip rubber, but no Velcro belt slip taking any measures, if the cycle frame is in shock, the battery pack may loosen. In other words, the firmness of the power supply may depend on the type of the frame. If it can only be fixed on the top of the upper tube and the upper tube is circular in cross section, looseness occurs. The light’s rate will be greater.
The switch is located at the rear end of the light. It is a micro switch with a waterproof design. The touch is very clear when pressed, and the switch button is large. Even if you wear a full finger glove, it can be operated easily. Switch serves light, green light during full charge, the charge amount is less than 20% the light flashes. This light has a brightness adjustment function, press the switch can be switched between three states of strong light, low light and closed , long press the switch in the open state can increase the cycle between 10% -80% of the output in units of 10% adjusting section, a total of 8 light adjusting profile. In the off state, press and hold the switch to enter the flash mode. Press again to long-press to cycle between flash, slow flash, flash, and SOS modes. Pressing the switch once in any flash mode turns off. Such a multi-mode design does enrich the functionality of this light, but the operation without a gear indication is really confusing. When adjusting the light, you have to press the switch for a few beats to know what level of output it is.
To make such a small diameter can BL800C perfect beam irradiated, independent research Ferei this cellulite plated aluminum reflector layer, and with the front end of coated optical glass to enhance light transmittance, which said plating Ferei The orange grain surface provides better focus and beam effects.
Specially designed reflector the effect was remarkable, BL800C light is small, but a large illumination range, more range super over 250m, 40m has been able to forward within a single wide lane road lit up at 50% output, beam range sufficient to cover the wide two-lane road, then again lift output peripheral beam will be more bright, able to paint at full light output of the black jungle into day seem bright. In most cases 50% of the output is sufficient to meet demand, can be seen from the photos to the center when the output luminance of 50% and almost 100%, but the brightness of the peripheral light flux difference is large, and when the output luminance of 80% It is already very close to the full power output, but the peripheral beam is a little darker. If for 3.5 hours can be extended by lowering the output power of the power consumption is still not enough time, the power of 5200mAh enough to make this light using more than 35 hours in low light condition.
The all-metal construction BL800C it has greater stability and durability, brightness and lighting range is fully capable of full foot at night without lights environment needs to ride, endurance power supply is also very satisfactory. Although the exquisite workmanship, but not to the extreme, but also a higher level of surface texture, as a domestic products, BL800C performance is no less been imported goods, and the price is an overwhelming advantage. From the official website of the company, the BL800C has already been introduced with an upgraded version. Not only has it adopted a new type of half-moon reflector, but it has also made several improvements and optimizations, and there are more choices for colors.
