Magicshine’s MJ-908 is a seriously bright bit of kit. This light combo includes not only a front light of an amazing 8000 Lumens(theoretical) but also a dinky rear light which are both controlled by the remote switch that is included. The 8000 lumens are produced by the 8 x cree XM-L2 LED’s which are all contained in the light head giving a beam pattern at 20 degrees. The battery pack has changed slightly for this newly designed light and has a lower longer profile than the older bigger capacity batteries. The light head also includes a cute little LCD display giving you run times, percentage of use and also indicating the selected mode.
Newly designed with advanced cooling fins the Magicshine MJ-908 weighs in at 190gram
Both the front and rear light heads are attached to the bike using the ‘o’ ring method, although the ‘o’ rings have been newly designed and now actually resemble a double D enabling one ring to fit a multitude of different size bars.
The newly designed battery pack holds 6 x 18650 Li-ion batteries (7.4V 7.8AH) giving a very decent 1.1 hours of run time on highest with this astonishingly bright light and up to 6.3 hours on 20% output. The battery is now more ergonomic and straps neatly to your frame using two nylon straps.
The Magicshine MJ-908 employs 8*XM-L2 LEDs to achieve an amazing 8000 lumens of theoretical max output, using that in anger will certainly turn night into day. However you still have the opportunity to turn the power down using the 5 different power modes. 100%, 75%, 50%, 20% and flashing mode too. The beauty of this model is that Magicshine have also used a smart little LCD display on the top of the lighthead indicating run times in hours and minutes and also in percentage terms. A great little idea that they’ve used before on the Eagle range! The package also contains a little rear light and the relevant splitter cables to enable you to use both from just the one battery and a remote switch giving you the option of turning the lights on and off without really taking your hands off the bars. If you really want to turn night into day then you should give this light a try. You won’t find brighter and in such good value anywhere else.
