  • A great combination to get you started.
  • Award winning MJ-880 coupled with MJ-818 split kit.
  • A great front and rear combination at a low price.

The MJ-880 range is the latest from Magicshine. At 2000 lumens, no other light gets close to beating it for power and value. To build this package we've added our eye blisteringly bright MJ-818 rear light split kit. This means you can run a front and rear light from one battery. The Y cable you need is included in the package.

MJ-880 - Design

The lighthead itself is suprisingly compact, approximately half the size of the MJ-816 and easily small enough to be helmet mounted. There are several new features about the design we really like including the new mounting system, the battery casing and the new style connectors. The switch is top mounted and very intuitive making it a cinch to use.

Mounting

The MJ-880 retains the hook system for this new design light but has a replacement for the 'O' ring system. 2 hooks at the front make attaching the single, Y design rubber strap even quicker than before. There's a single hook at the back and the rubber strap is adjustable, making it suitable for almost any size bars. The battery attaches in the same way with 2 chunky adjustable straps.

Battery

The battery is a chunky , 6 X 18650 cell ( 6600Ah lithium ion) design. Running time at full power is around 2.3 hours by the manufacturer and being so new, we haven't had the opportunity to verify this yet. Please note that when used in conjunction with the rear light, run times will be less. The design of the connector from battery to light head is also improved, being more recessed than previously which should make it more impervious to water ingress. The battery, which clearly doesn't need a protective bag, is attached to the frame using 2 adjustable rubber straps.NB: The charger supplied cannot be used with other batteries neither can any existing chargers or any other connectors be used with this battery.

Beam

This is a fabulous light in use. It offers a wide beam with clear edges but with a very strong, long throw beam out in front. This is a light that turns night into day! The MJ-880 is the light that won all the major group tests in 2012.

Operation

The MJ-880 is a very easy light to use. The clicky switch is top mounted and also illuminated by a colour coded LED which reflects the amount of charge remaining.

  • Green = 100 - 70%
  • Blue = 70 - 40%
  • Red = 40 - 10%
  • Flashing Red = less than 10%

Pressing the left side of the switch starts the light on it's lowest setting (10%). The click the right side to scroll through intermediate power levels (25%, 50%, 75% and 100%). To reduce power simply select the left side of the switch. If you wish to start at full power, just press the right hand side of the switch. To turn the light off, just press either side of the switch for approx 2 seconds. When the light head has been connected to the battery but not switched on, each light head emits a surprisingly bright green glow we think it's rather cool! The MJ-880 light also includes a circuit protection board with over charge, over discharge and short circuit protection. In the event the light head surface gets too hot, the output will automatically be reduced.

  1. Common sense approach to lights Review by Duncan
    Rating

    Firstly I'd like to say thank you to the lady I spoke to on the phone as she was very helpful and just spoke common sense and generally helped me with my choice.

    I went with the mj880 and the rear light split kit. The unit itself came very quickly and as soon as I got it I charged it up ready to use.

    When I did use it I was very impressed, it's certainly bright enough for what in using it for and I'm hopefully going to start using it for more single track stuff!

    To be honest I'm not really good at reviews but I will say that for the price I've paid I'm truly happy and I would recommend anyone go to magicshine. I'm thinking about getting another battery as a spare so I'll be speaking to them soon!
