Review: Magicshine Eagle 600

The secret sauce of of this light is an OLED display that tells you current battery level and current run time left. It tells you exactly how much battery charge you have left and it will calculate in real-time your runtime based on your current light level.   Read More »

Magicshine MJ-880 U2 - 2013 Mtbr Lights Shootout

Every time we get a new light from Magicshine, the design and quality seems to step up a notch and the MJ-880 is no exception. The light head looks like a solid piece with some nice, polished surfaces. It has two Cree XML LEDs that claim 2200 Lumens. The battery is huge so the system weight goes up ...    Read More »

Review: Gemini Lights Xera 950

The Xera has a nice, tiny light head and it puts out a good amount of light. It's ideal for the helmet use with a Duo or Olympia on the bar. This year, the Xera has a 100 Lumen bump from last year and that is typical of the upgrade in the whole Gemini line up.    Read More »

Tripod mount Contour Roam 2 onto Magicshine helmet mount?

I have a Magicshine 808E I use often, so I just leave the helmet mount on my helmet. I have a new Contour Roam 2, and I was thinking the most secure and easy way to mount it would be on that. I was thinking a tripod mount that'll tighten so the camera doesn't turn and a similar oring wrap-around l ... Read More »

Disassembling a (Chinese knockoff) MagicShine - how to remove the heatsink?

Looking at some images online, this unit is very similar in construction to the MagicShine SSC P7. But, being a $24 knockoff... it broke. Well, it's not broken per say... just doesn't work. Okay, it's broken. The light cuts on and off - wiggling the wire at the head unit and holding will keep the li ... Read More »

magicshine 808 driver substitute?

A buddy offered me a frame in exchange for working on his MS 808 that quit working. I can't pass that deal up. Opened the light up, and found a lot of rust/corrosion on the switch assembly on the driver. This is the older P7 model. (1st gen) I'm going to try replacing the switch first - ... Read More »
