Replacement Cache Battery for B&M Luxos IQ2?
« on: October 09, 2019, 04:31:14 pm »
Greetings, new arrival here! What a treasure trove of bike related knowledge...bit of a PITA that my first post is a cry for help but...

My dynamo light wouldn't come on the other morning. Hub is giving normal output - indeed powered my Revo light no problem as back up this morning.  There is voltage travelling up the supply cable for the Luxos, so from that and searching on a few threads on here it'd seems that there is a known issue with cache battery on Luxos front light.  How have people resolved this or, and probably more likely,  where would I be able to get a replacement?  Spa and SJS showing nothing and google only brings me back here...Can anyone point me in right direction?

Check your warranty. Some retailers offer surprisingly long ones.

The cache battery is a custom LiFe thingy with two cells on a single connector that needs to fit in a very tight space behind the reflector. You’re not going to find a generic replacement unless you have serious having skills, and I don’t think they’re sold as spare parts.

Otherwise, landfill beckons*.

* or eBay spares/repair. Someone might appreciate the casing as they have a bit of breaking off at the bracket...

Mine died in a similar manner to yours. It depends when and where you bought it. Mine died four years into a five year warranty, refunded by Rose Bikes in Germany no problem, replaced it with an IQ-X from them.
