Cheap back up – 4400mAh External Battery Pack with Pouch for SKU 29489/30864 (4*18650) Reviews

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

Pros:
This battery pack is well priced and I would recommend it as a back up battery for MagicShine bike lights.
The pouch is reasonably robust to protect it.
Cons:
If you ride in the rain you need to waterproof the battery pack, especially where the cable exits it.
Some of these packs are not balanced, so not all the batteries get charged. This obviously leads to shorter runtimes for your magicshine light. Make sure you check the runtime as soon as you get this battery.
Other:
There are already newer generation waterproof MagicShine battery packs available (sealed in an aluminium canister)
Dx does not stock them yet.
Bottomline:
Not bad for the price but beware that some of the packs are not balanced with shorter runtimes as a result.
