NiteRider Lumina Micro 900
The original Lumina series lights from NiteRider drew raves for compact size and solid features. The Micro series moves to a more compact design but still over-delivers. The Lumina Micro 900 delivers a max output of 900 Lumens from the LED lamp in the compact (Micro) housing, while maintaining USB charging of the internal Li-Ion battery, multiple user modes, all coming in at a lighter 130 grams. The light housing unclips quickly from the new strap style handlebar mount- which is quicker and more flexible than the knob style used previously. At under $75, 900 Lumens is now almost laughably affordable.
For serious commuters who need a simple, effective light for both seeing, and being seen, the Lumina Micro 900 is perfect. With five user modes- High, Medium, Low, Walk, and Daytime Flash, the rider can tailor usage to maximize battery life. On the High setting, the Lumina Micro projects the full 900 Lumens for 2 hours. The Medium puts out 450 Lumens for 4.5 hours and Low delivers 200 Lumens for 11 hours. The Walking mode offers a highly efficient 35 hours at 60 Lumens, which would also be a great setting for fixing a flat or walking up the driveway. NiteRider lists the 900 Lumens of DVF Flash mode at 11 hours.
The USB charging time is only 1:45 hours at 1A charging amps, or 3.5 hours at .5A charging amps, and hopefully you'll never have to explore the full range of the battery. Just keep in mind that if you have a legitimate 90+ minute commute home in the dark, you will be pushing the range of the High mode. Your light choices are dictated by your needs. This unit will be perfect for those with an hour or less commute each way that require serious light. Even 200 Lumens is more than adequate for some rider averaging 15-18 mph with plenty of ambient light. If this is you, the Lumina Micro 900 is a great choice. NiteRider builds reliable, trustworthy products. At such a light weight, we'd even consider it as an emergency backup for real night riding on the roads or trails.
