Background Information:

Light and Go is a company based in Korea known as Wonderbike and they get their light sets manufactured in China by Magicshine. They are looking for US distributors at the time this review was published so all sales and service is handled directly from Korea.

Their lights have very similar build and packaging to the original Magicshine MJ-808 light. But the light heads are different and the four light heads reviewed here look like new designs. Wonderbike owns all the molds for these light heads and thus these should be exlusive to Light and Go.

They are aware of all the battery and charger problems Magicshine has encountered and they explained to us that they have taken steps to resolve them. They've gone with better parts and gone through many rounds of testing on the batteries, chargers, wires, etc.

The lights reviewed here are:

Light and Go Firefly - $80 - 400 lumen claimed

Light and Go Owlet - $90 - 700 lumen

Light and Go Fireball - $130 - 1100 lumen

Light and Go Foride - $150 - 1400 lumen

Manufacturer Specs:
  • Maximum luminous flux of 400 lumens
  • Extremely wide 26 degree beam
  • An enclosed end cap can change this cute light to a tail light
  • 7.4V 2.2A Protected Li-Ion battery pack & more than 180(360 mins with 4 cell battery pack )
    minutes of burning in boost mode (100%).
  • 2.5 (3.5hrs with 4 cell battery pack) hours of fast charging. Automatically switches off
    when batteries are fully charged.
  • Under/Over Voltage Protection + Over Current Protection + Over temperature protection.
  • 5 step fuel gauge warns you that the battery is getting low as time goes by.
    green=100~90%/ blue=90~60%/ amber=60~5%/ red & flashing red= 5% remaining battery power
    Please be aware! Led indicators might not show you the exact amount of power remaining.
Light Meter Measurements:



This light measured 15 lux on our ambient light measurement facility. This is very low compared to the Niterider 350 lumen at 25 lux and the The Light and Motion 300d at 28 lux

Strengths:
  • can be used as a tail light as well
Weaknesses:
  • not bright at all compared to 400 lumen claims
  • lens red cap is flimsy
  • beam pattern is too wide for the amount of light it puts out
Bottom Line:

This is not the best light from Light and Go. It's not bright enough for trail use but it can be a good light for commuting, either as a head lamp or tail lamp.
