I am a keen mountain biker and love night riding, so far I have been using a RAY III as a bar light and a single XML flashlight on my lid. The one which appear to be the most suited to my needs was the twin XM-L SOLARSTORM X2, so I took the plunge and order one for ?29 from one of the UK e-bay sellers. The X2 arrived in a plain brown box, inside was an instruction leaflet, X2 head, battery with bag, UK charger, 4 rubber bands and a free rear light. The head as got some angular and aggressive looking fins, ideal to cool the lights but dangerous in a wipeout. 4 X Rubber ring for installation two of them in green and two of them in black as in the picture.
Internal wiring applies the high efficient booster circuit, working voltage is wide and can utilize the batteries in the largest extent. On my LID the new SOLARSTORM X2 mounted on the BIKERAY helmet mount and the Solarstorm battery attached to the side.
The 6400 mAh battery pack is made of 4x18650 batteries which I expected to give me close to a couple of hours on max. With a light meter, I did a very quick test in my home made integration sphere and I was getting 543000lux* out of the BIKERAY 3 XPG Led against 670000lux to the SOLARSTORM 2 XM-L.
I was very surprised as the light had been turn on only for downhill sections which probably did not add up to half an hour!
I suspected a battery failure as I have read a lot about some of the Chinese budget lights battery packs being made of inferior batteries and being of half or less than the capacity advertised. Once home, I connected my Bikeray battery pack to the SOLARSTORM head and it came to life again. Looking at the green LED battery condition system, the battery pack within its first 26 second would have lost 20% of its capacity and 50% within 18mn! I did contacted the e-bay seller and as he no longer had UK stock, he refunded me the full price and advised me to buy another one from a know seller to him. The new X2 has been ordered, strangely enough another few discrepancies are in the other seller listing as the battery once is quoted as 6400mAh then further down in the listing as 8400 mAh, also it is advertised as a 3 mode strong, medium and flash , then in the instruction 4 modes, high, medium, low and flash. Could not take my tripod and camera to the woods, so the photos are taken in my back garden. Review number two from replacement set obtained from a different e-bay seller, this light head is Black, price paid is ?28. The set arrived in a slightly different package and also had a free rear light (not advertised) the rest of it was identical apart from having 2 instead of four rubber bands.
I hope the battery life will increase after a few charging cycles (probably not!), we will see and will post reports later on. I am unsure if the e-bay sellers do really know what they are buying and selling, what is sure is that they should not advertise them as 5000 lumens as the output OUT OF two XML-U2 will not even reach half of the quoted output!!!!! Note the blue lump on the left hand side battery is silicone RTV that I use to waterproof No1 battery see the first review.


Against: angular shape,non waterproof battery, overly inflated lumens output and battery life.
If any of you are running X2, please send your feedback as to battery life, also I have been scouting the net for an affordable replacement good quality 4x18650 battery pack. The overall look of the Fluxient battery inspire confidence than the X2 battery supplied by the ebay sellers, the four cells are enclosed into an plastic hard shell container, the 15" lead has a rubber grommet at its base to stop water ingress into the hard case. Most of my forest rides are around 2hours so this will do me nicely, all I need now is some dry evenings!
Based on your review and friend recommendation bit the bullet and ordered one, for $31 is worth a try. My replacement is in the post and I should hopefully get it in time for our Friday's night ride.
A friend of mine got one and his battery is good for 3 hours, so I must have been unlucky or may have got a clone????
With the chinese stuff you never know, they advertise something and sometimes send you a bad clone. The second set did not arrive today, so I hope I will get it tomorrow as we are riding Friday night! This item will be sent through the Global Shipping Programme and includes international tracking.

Adopted in two Cree XM-L U2 LEDs and powered by 4*18650 battery pack, X2 bicycle light outputs 1500lums and run 2h30min on high mode. Once turn on, the beam was perfect giving me plenty of throw but still loads of spill, this is typical of XM-L Led which in my mind are well suited to cycling.
The lead connector is the standard push fit with no screw thread, this was not problem for me and the connection was tight.
This time the X2 was fitted on my home made light sphere and a fan was cooling the X2 from behind. The light went on for a further 43mn and only then I decided to turn the battery off as I was more than satisfied with the run time and the output I was getting.

The X2 do come in a red or black finish with the Solarstorm and X2 logo in white, the body is anodized but with no ratting.
This appear to be twice as bright as my Bikeray III, but to be fair this is mainly due to the different beam pattern, the BIKERAY in comparison is purely a flood light.
The X2 stayed in the same position during the test, which made this readings more accurate as earlier tests when the light had to be reposition roughly in the same place. If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable.
Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount.
The pack has an indented curved shape opposite to the loop to help the positioning of the pack onto a curved surface. No Helmet mounting is supplied, so if you are planning like me to use it as an helmet light, you will have to get yourself an helmet mounting. I would advise users to find some foam to stick on the contact side of the pack to act as a cushion and protect your frame against rubs, clear tape on your frame would also be a good idea!
The hard shell of the battery pack will give good protection to the batteries but as expected add weight and bulkiness to the pack (233gr including velcro strap). The velcro strap itself appear to be of good quality and the velcro closing is very strong, so no worries about the strap coming undone and your battery pack falling off while you are ridding.
