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

Light Meter Measurements:


This light measured 119 lux on our ambient light measurement facility. This is very impressive and matches up well with its 1400 lumen claims

Strengths:

  • Light is very bright for its size and price
  • beam pattern is wide and even with no center hot spot
  • 5 step switch is quite nice. One can turn it on in lowest setting or on highest setting
  • light head has good cooling and light head stays cool
  • This is a great value for $150 for a very bright leading edge light

Weaknesses:

  • light switch silicon cover gets out of position and pops out too easily
  • cannot aim left right
  • smooth transitions when switching light modes can make it harder to tell when the button was actually pressed.
  • switch is always on when battery is connected

Bottom Line:

Now we're talking! This light is impressive as it competes with some of the brighter lights in the market. The beam pattern is wide at 24 degrees and it has no hot spots. Thus it is easy to get used to and there are no harsh transitions in the beam. The throw of the beam is not as far as other high end lights but it spreads the beam nice and wide.
