Lupine Babylu Older Lights

4/5 (1 Reviews)


Product Description

Babylu - Maximum light at less costs! Designed for all, who set a value on maximum performance than luxury equipment. A complete lighting system with the handlebar mountable dual level switch Rüdiger, NiCD rechargeable battery bottle and charger "Wiesel". The palladium-coated reflectors of this lighting system guarantees the same very high efficiency and ingenious lighting characteristic as the NightMare and Passubio series. Characteristic for all Babylus: the black anodized housing and the NiCd in the yellow bottle. Both Babylus will be delivered with the Wiesel Charger.

Submitted by Stig Siemer a Cross Country Rider from Annaberg-Buchholz, Saxony, Germany

Date Reviewed: April 22, 2004

Strengths:    fast and bomb-proof handlebar mounting for the lampe and battery, lots(!) of light, good handling

Weaknesses:    insufficent handlebar mounting for the switch (better solution by Syntace costs about 30$), high price

Bottom Line:   
Running at 16 Watts the Babylu delivers enough light for really(!) fast night rides, even on unknown tracks. It beats every other (non-Lupine) solution I've seen so far. Using the power-saving 8 Watts mode is a good alternative for road tracks or to be seen during dusk and dawn. The 3.6 Ah NiCd battery needs a lot of care but works fine. Make sure to empty it completely (until the Lupine switches off by itself) before you recharge it. I've never tried a Nightmare or Edision, but actually I don't need more light. The price is really deterring, but once you own one you will never give it away. It contains a lot of brain work. However, one star less in overall for the high price.

Hint: The Babylu is not sold anymore. The Passubio XC is the entry to Lupine's lamps now. It has a better battery (NiMH) and a better control unit (PCS).
