    The MJ-872 is at the high power end of the Magicshine range, offering staggering power for the price.

    This amazing beam power comes from a single light head, using four Cree XP-G LEDs. The compact dimensions make this the lamp of choice for your helmet or the bars, using the tried and tested 'O' ring system to secure the light head in less than 60 seconds without the need for any tools. The variable power modes allow you to make your choice of power and conserve battery power if required. The 2 buttons to the rear of the head allow you to increase or reduce the power level and they contain coloured LEDs to warn of an impending loss of power. The 'get you home mode' can then be selected to ensure you reach your destination safely.

    Battery Choice

    We realise that run time is paramount for some people and so we offer you a choice of Magicshine batteries to enable you to choose a bigger battery and a longer run time if needed.  

    The standard Magicshine MJ-6038 battery included in the set is a 7.4V 4.4Ah,  4 x 18650 cell battery produced by BAK in China.  It includes a small protection circuit board with over-charge, over discharge and short circuit protection function. The battery weighs just less than 300 grams and is encased in a plastic weatherproof membrane, so there is no need for a battery bag.  The battery attaches to any size frame using two robust rubber straps, which can be replaced if they ever become damaged.

    If you would like to extend your run time you can opt to upgrade the battery to a Magicshine MJ-6036 7.4V 6.6Ah 6 x 18650 cell battery also produced by BAK in China. The compromise you have to make for the lengthened run time is weight.  The MJ-6036 weighs 430 grams, an extra 130 grams to the standard battery, but it will allow an extra hour and ten minutes of riding on full power.  We'll throw in an MJ-6070 adaptor for free if you upgrade, as the MJ-6036 battery has an oval connector instead of the standard round Magicshine connector.  

    Run Times

    The following are our estimates of run times on the MJ-872 at maximum power with various battery options:

    Battery Type

    • Magicshine standard 4.4Ah MJ-6038  2hours 20 mins (full power)
    • Magicshine Upgrade 6.6Ah MJ-6036  3hours 30 mins (full power)


    Please remember that at low power, ie 400 lumens, even the standard battery will last for 10 hours  


    Bonita says

    "This is one heck of a light. It's got a fabulous flood beam so it's great for riding fast trails or tricky downhills. It's really quick to mount on the bars but best of all is the price. It's gone down  significantly in price since it won the 'best value' award in MBUK magazine back in 2011".

  1. How do they do it? Review by Rob

    How do they get such a bright light from such a small unit? Very good spread of light, easily good enough for fast trails at night. Even the lowest setting is good for moderate speeds. Secure fitment to the handlebar and nice differing colour switch on the back to give a rough idea of battery power remaining. I have 2 of these on the handlebars resulting in a view that is brighter than daylight. Completely transformed my night time riding. The only slight gripe is that the cable connectors can be real tricky to pull apart when it comes to recharging the battery. Apart from that a top quality light that really performs.

  2. Power in a well sized package Review by Donavan

    I received this light in December bundled with the Magicshine MJ-818 rear bike light. Both have worked flawlessly since day 1 with build quality being solid for both devices (I crashed at high speed with my bike tumbling down stairs. The alloy cooling fins are damaged from impact, but the light still operates flawlessly). The output power can only be described as blinding and care needs to be taken not to run them at full power in the presence of cars and pedestrians. The lowest power setting is more than adequate for general night riding with the next setting up working well for off road forested areas. Battery life is more than adequate for 3+ hours running both front and rear lights.

    The overall conclusion is an excellent lights package with more than enough power at the right price. (Posted on 24/03/2016)

  3. Excellent Review by Sheaster

    I have been using this for three years mainly off road biking, but also some running. I was initially very impressed, and continue to be. On the lowest setting it is fine for climbing even on technical ground. On the highest setting it is literally brilliant. Overall good battery life which can be managed by switching through the modes. Build quality seems pretty good. I keep toying with the idea of buying one for my helmet, but I can see really well with just one lamp on the bars. I might splash out if I start doing longer night rides, e.g. 3 hours plus. Overall, I would thoroughly recommend. And night riding is fantastic fun. (Posted on 03/10/2015)

  4. Over 2 years still great Review by trevuk

    I am a casual/light user and this light has been faultless. At the price it needs ten stars. (Posted on 05/02/2014)

  5. Amazing little light! Review by David Mcleod

    This is an amazing little light.Three and a half hours of daylight musin't grumble and the price is great,thinking of buying another (Posted on 29/08/2013)

  6. Really impressed Review by David

    Got this last week with the 4.5Ah open light battery. Was really impressed with the power on the trail. Did a direction comparison with a Hope Vision 4 and I couldn't see the difference. Excellent customer service. Plus the o-ring mount was more than steady enough for my riding. (Posted on 29/08/2013)

  7. Awesome! Review by Simon Jolley

    Awesome! Never riden at night before, so did lots of research... the 872 just can't be faulted. Super bright, I've had about 4.5 hours with them set at 75% before recharge (without charging first) and a bargain price. Why buy anything else?! Amazing. (Posted on 29/08/2013)

  8. Brilliant Review by Dave Roberts

    Brilliant light for the money. I went for my first night ride last night using the MJ-872 and was gobsmacked by the amount of light it gives out. Its not only bright but far reaching as well!! Quality of both the light and battery is spot on also, everything fits together nicely and feels solid. Can't speculate on the reliability as I've only just had it but hopefully there will be no problems.

  9. Well made Review by Scott

    The light is well made and both lamp and battery are extremely light. The light quality was superb: bright, long range, great ground definition and no dimming as the battery ran down. Get the head mount option plus extension cable. Suggest the 8.7 aH to have confidence in riding beyond the 3 hour mark. (Posted on 29/08/2013)

  10. Excellent Review by Andrew Webb

  12. Excellent light Review by Edwin

    Excellent light. Took it for a night ride last week with great results. Very bright light, good for distance and solid on a rough, fast, downhill. Battery lasted full 2 hours. Very pleased with my purchase. (Posted on 29/08/2013)
