  • Fantastic Light

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    Fantastic amount of light! Great price.

    Cons:

    When the battery runs down during normal use there is absolutely NO prior warning - one second it's as bright as a football pitch, next it's like the back of beyond.
    As a result, I nearly crashed into a hedge on a dark country lane one night.
    Solution: Mount a second (lower power) 'standby' light on your handlebar as well, (e.g. a Fenix LD10) and leave it off until the MJ-808 battery is almost depleted - keep a regular eye on the battery voltage.

    OtherThoughts:

    Handlebar (O-ring) mount works OK, but a lever-action bar clamp would have been better.
    A neutral coloured LED would be easier on the eye, especially for picking out detail, but it's not an overly bluish tint.

    Bottomline:

    This light make cycling at night a pleasure. Buy one!
