Which helmet models is Blinxi compatible with?
Blinxi fits most helmets. If you can stick the holder on your helmet, it means that you can use Blinxi. The dimensions of the helmet mount are: 2.3 cm high x 6 cm wide.
How many LEDs are there in Blinxi?
Blinxi has 4 red LEDs and 2 orange LEDs for flashing. In total, the device has 6 LEDs.
Is it waterproof?
Yes, Blinxi is waterproof. We have paid a lot of attention to this particular point, because we know that users also drive on rainy days. For us, this is an essential feature!
Is it only for cyclists?
No. Blinxi is for everyone. Today, there are many more ways to get around the city: electric scooters, monowheels, skateboards... All these users, as well as cyclists, must be visible in traffic. And they also need to be able to indicate their direction, to be more predictable and therefore safer. Blinxi is therefore aimed at all road users, regardless of their means of transport.
What is the maximum diameter of the handlebars on which the remote control can be placed?
We chose elastic straps to attach the remote control because we knew that this could be the most universal way to do it. But we innovated by offering the possibility to use 2 straps instead of one to make sure our remote control fits any handlebar. That said, you can attach your remote to handlebars up to 32mm in diameter without any problem.
Can I adjust the light intensity?
Unfortunately this is not possible. We made a choice by offering 3 different lighting modes (fixed, flashing and daylight) but without adjusting the intensity, as this would have increased the price of Blinxi considerably.
Can it be used all day?
Of course it can! We created Blinxi to make you visible but also predictable in traffic. And the daytime mode is made for that. When using this mode, only the indicators are activated and they are bright enough to be seen. Thus, using Blinxi in daytime mode will allow you to indicate your direction while driving, which will be much safer.
Concerning its autonomy, everything depends on the selected lighting mode:
- Flashing mode: 10H
- Fixed mode: 8H
- Day mode: +24H
Is it possible to buy additional brackets to use the Blinxi on several helmets?
Yes, it is. We sell additional sets of brackets on our website. You can find them on this page.
Since the Blinxi is magnetically attached to the bracket, is there any risk of losing it?
The Blinxi's attachment system is patented. It is a combination of magnetism and mechanical fastening. At the beginning, we thought we would only offer a magnetic attachment. However, we had some doubts about its effectiveness, so we decided to rework it and add a mechanical fastener as well. So, with the combination of the 2, we are confident enough to tell you that if the holder is properly glued to the helmet (and definitely not upside down) and Blinxi is properly attached to the holder, there is no risk of loss.
Did you include a charger in the Blinxi box?
No, there is no charger in the box. Only a USB cable. Simply because we felt it was not necessary to add another charger to your daily life, charge you more for such an item that most of you already have and save the environment by not providing an unnecessary device.
What type of battery is needed for the remote control and how do I change it?
A 2032 battery is required to use the BLINXI remote control. This battery is supplied in the box when you receive your Blinxi. It can be replaced by removing the 3 screws on the back of the remote control with a Phillips screwdriver. Everything is indicated in the product manual.
Can I disable the indicator sound?
The indicator sound can be switched off by the user. The procedure is very simple: with the Blinxi switched off, press and hold the ON/OFF button for 4 seconds until you hear a beep. This indicates that the indicator reminder has been modified (deactivated or reactivated). Proceed in the same way to reactivate it.
