  • XML-T6 bright, excellent throw

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    at this pricepoint, nothing can match it for performance. Excellent throw.

    Cons:

    Battery pack not interchangeable with Magicshine - HAIII different electrical connectors. Spill too limited i.e. the focus is too narrow and too little light for the area outside center of the beam. An orange peel reflector would rectify this easily.

    The power cable feeds from the front of the light instead of the back; inconvenient position.

    light switch cap is only faintly illuminated, so it is not as easy to find the switch as on competing products.

    My unit worked well on arrival, but soon developed a problem that it will not switch on, except a brief flash of less than a second. This is before I even had an attempt to test it on the bike.

    OtherThoughts:

    Design differs from the popular Magicshine series. The aluminium head of the light is slightly longer.

    Could do without the stobe mode.

    Bottomline:

    If reliability issues can be fixed, this is a winner. A slightly different reflector would make it more suitable for mountain biking.
