Step by step guide to replacing a battery in a Joystick Light


We keep getting asked about replacement batteries for these lights so thought we would do a handy easy to follow step by step guide to change the batteries inside. 


If you are not in the position to replace the batteries yourself we offer a refurb service where you can send the light to us and we can do the replacement for you instead.


Couple of points worth bearing in mind though, so long as the light is giving a reduced light time then it is more likely to be the battery that has now got a reduced cycle life. Sometimes if the light is totally dead it may not be the battery but either the control board under the switch end or the Led itself.


Also not all Joystick lights can be opened easily, if yours has the ridges on the bottom end it can be screwed off as shown in the guide, some versions do not have these ridges and cannot be opened.


Should you wish to go ahead and replace the battery yourself, you can buy the Li-Ion Battery from ourselves and it would include the heat shrink tubing for the solder joints.



Replacement Battery £23 INC Interlink delivery cost (approx £8)


If you would prefer for us to re-cell your light for you we are able to do that also, But please ensure the bottom end is the ridged type as shown (not smooth) and also the light still works but with a reduced light time. if the light is totally dead it may not be the battery but either the Led or driver and these are not repairable by ourselves.

This service would cost £37 (inc Return Shipping)

"Great lights came in 4th on the Snowdownhill Gersau 2012, Rigi - Switzerland Team NANDROLON 2RADTUNING says Thank You!!!"


"I bought a set of your lights last week. I used them on a solo non stop ride of the West Highland Way starting on Friday night and they were great. Even on low they were fine for cruising along, so I was easily able to manage the 9 hours of night riding without the battery getting near low. On full power the performance is fantastic, the balance between beam and peripheral seems right to me. It also rained almost non stop and the lights weren't affected at all. The quality of the construction, cables and sealing all look really good and it definitely stood up to the test. Great product at a bargain price.
Best regards,
Tom D"


"Another good service experience here, ordered Tuesday 0950, in my hands at 1030 this morning; well done to both Mr Smudge and Royal Mail! "


"I ordered a V2 XML light off Smudge on sunday and received it today tuesday bloody hell that was quick and he also told me via facebook it was on its way

All the praise heaped on Smudge is well deserved"


“Having 4 friends with your V1 XML light, I finally gave in to the need for more light and was fortunate enough to time it just right with the V2 coming out.
My 'V2' XML Light arrived this morning. Super fast delivery - thanks!
I thought my old light was good but this is an amazing amount of light for the money and seems to be well built and very robust.

Thanks for the great service.


"I really appreciate the stellar customer service. That's really hard to come by these days. I tell everyone I know about those lights, as I think they're absolutely brilliant!"

Cheers, Andy
