  • Very compact design, lightweight
  • Fabulous beam pattern
  • Enhanced cooling 
  • Brilliant value

The 2015 model Magicshine MJ-858 is the best new Magicshine product we've seen for a few years. Lightweight, enhanced cooling, compact design but with a fabulous 1000 lumens beam, the low price makes this a light thats hard to ignore.

Dimensions

If you haven't got much bar space left, have a look at the MJ-858. With a diameter of 3.2cm and length 4.5cm this is a diminutive light that stores away easily into pockets or small bags without a problem. Total weight is 147gm including the battery bag.

Mounting

The tried and tested Magicshine 'O' ring mounting system continues to win plaudits for its robustness as well as ease and speed of use. With a choice of two 'O' rings for different size bars, mounting this light is easy to do within seconds. It's clean and easy, ideal for commuters.

Battery

The standard battery is a 4 X 18650 cell 4.4Ah battery. With a fully sealed plastic cover and rubber straps to enable you to fix the battery to your bike without the need for a battery bag, it offers excellent protection against the elements. 

Design

This is a barrel shaped design, black T6 Aluminium alloy. The inner case has cooling fins along it's length while the outer shell offers further cooling ensures a cool touch to the hand. 

In Use 

The MJ-858 continues the Magicshine reputation for ease of use. The single click switch at the rear of the light controls both on/ff and beam functions and it really is simple to use. Clicking the switch brings on in turn high beam, low beam and flash modes. The rear switch has 5 colour modes to warn of reducing battery power. Green, blue yellow red and finally flashing red (<5%) give adequate warning of impending power loss.

Run Time 

The MJ-858 will run for 3.5 hours on full brightness with it's 4.4Ah battery, you can easily extend this by reducing the output.  However if run time is parramount to your requirements, then just upgrade to the bigger 6.6Ah battery to get well over 5 hours run time on full power. 


Beam

The MJ-858 uses a single CREE XM-L2 LED. It packs a punchy beam of 1000 lumens, comparable to the MJ-808E. However we tested both lights together and the MJ-858 has a brighter beam with significantly less halo effect than the MJ-808E. The brightness is evident in the beam spread which offers more of a flood beam than the MJ808E although in our judgement, beam length was similar. 

Warranty

The factory offers a 12 month warranty on the light head, 180 days on the battery. However Bonita likes to do things a little bit differently and as exclusive UK distributor for this model, she is offering a 12 month warranty on all components, including the battery. Another reason to buy from Magicshine UK.

  1. Budget Price, Outstanding Quality, Super Bright! Review by XCRider

    A very small and very powerful light! The flood beam is brilliant, so good I bought another to mount onto my helmet for extra versatility! (Posted on 16/01/2015)

  2. Small, bright and well made Review by NewtonUK

    I put the MJ-858 on my handlebars and it practically disappeared, the thing is small! However, the power button is easily accessible with full gloves on!

    I'm still working on where to locate the external battery pack, which is also surprisingly small. Hopefully it will be of sufficient capacity to last for a full week's worth of commuting.

    First impressions... Great little package with a bright light! (Posted on 19/11/2014)
