Magicshine's MJ-908 is a seriously bright bit of kit, and fabulous value for money too. Winning the 'Best Value high powered light' in MBR's 2016 review it has certainly been a very popular addition to the Magicshine stable. Introduced in late 2015 this light combo includes not only a front light of an amazing 8000 Lumens 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 fairly narrow 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
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 1.2 hours of run time on this astonishingly bright light and up to 6.5 hours on 20% output. The battery is now more ergonomic and straps neatly to your frame using two nylon straps.
The Magicshine MJ-908 gives an amazing 8000 lumens of power, 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 LED display on the top of the lighhead inidcating run times in hours and miutes 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 I don't think you'll find such good value any where else.
20% output (1600 luemns) 6.3 hours
50% output (4000 lumens) 2.5 hours
75% output (6000 lumens) 1.8hours
100% output the full 8000 lumens 1.1 hours)
Flashing mode 7+ hours
The beam pattern for this lighthead the MJ-908 is 20 degrees

Portable Sun? Review by Rob
Wowzer, after opening the very nicely packaged contents I got to trying this beast of light. I turned it on and instantly was impressed by the sheer brightness and useable spread of light. Then I clicked the button to go through the reducing brightness levels and OMG it went brighter and brighter!!! I thought I would be going down in power levels whereas the truth is it started on its minimum - impressive and got brighter and brighter. What an outstanding unit for the price. The rear light too is very good and both front and rear lights adjustable from the super convenient handlebar remote. Have already recommended to friends and would definitely buy again from this great company. (Posted on 04/12/2016)
WOW! Review by Willem
If big is good, then bigger is better, right? Well this is the first light where I'm using minimum a fair bit of the time (riding on roads) and only occasionally use full power. However I'm a crazy speedster off road downhill and there are still times when I really appreciate all that power. They call me crazy, but at least I can see where I'm going! Love the hard battery pack and straps - well suited to modern frames. Light unit remains remarkably cool - probably all those fins working as they should! The beam is smooth and really gives a good spread. This is now my "go to" handlebar unit. Not for use at full power on road - the poor motorists coming towards you will be blinded!
Having spent a lifetime working in F1, I'm used to just buying the best without being too concerned about cost - and ride with others of the same mind-set. So this light has been compared to the best big brand big power German light and it stacks up very well. Take the cost into account and this is a big winner. Great light, glad I bought it. Next ride - is tonight - before the pesky clocks change (Easter 2016) and take away some of our night! :-)
PS - the lumens rating isn't quite as honest as the big German brand but I expected that - suffice to say it is a great light.
