    Busch & Muller Ixon IQ Premium - Longevity & repair help

    Re: Busch & Muller Ixon IQ Premium - open unit It took a global pandemic to gather enough motivation to attempt a repair. I went for a less intrusive approach in keeping the LED and lens intact. Behind that there's a 5-mode LED driver with two cells in parallel. The battery protection board...

    I bought it from Bike24 and haven't heard a response from them yet, but return postage will be one-third of the purchase price. I've bought a Chinese light with their attempt at the cut-off/anti-dazzle beam and it's not bad at one-quarter of the B&M Ixon IQ Premium. I'm thinking with the B&M...

    Busch & Muller Ixon IQ Premium - Longevity & repair help
