August is here and so is your new Spikelight

It’s time to release a new batch of Spikelights!

As promised, the latest batch of Spikelights are now shipping in August.  We’ll be showing them off this Friday night at the WA rogaine in New Norcia.  So if you want to try one out, then come along and have a play.

The best news is that (for the first time ever) we’ve got spares. So if you order now you won’t have to wait. You can even have one for the WA rogaine this weekend.

Updated Design

On the outside they look much the same, but the current batch of V4 Spikelights have a few improvements over the V4s we sold last year.  For starters, the flood beam is about 20% more efficient.  Then you’ve got our lithium cells which now have 10% more capacity.  So you’re looking at having more light for more of the night.

We shaved a few grams off the front lighthead and made the back battery pack more comfortable. Then we balanced the whole thing better with a softer cable and a higher quality elastic headband.

Of course we’re not done yet. We still plan to make improvements and offer them as free or cheap upgrades to all existing Spikelight owners.
