Bright and versatile light – MagicShine MJ-872 Waterproof 4-CREE XP-G 4-Mode 1600-Lumen LED Bike Light with Battery Pack Set Reviews

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

Pros:
Very bright light! The four brightness settings makes it useful in different conditions, also it's very easy to change the brightness up/down using the simple buttons. The O-rings makes it easy to mount on different handlebars. The color coded battery level indicator is a big plus.
Cons:
Drains battery rather quickly at max power.
Other:
I'd recommend you also get the head strap to be able to make it into a very powerful headlamp for use while running/skiing/orienteering etc. at night! (I actually thought that was included) Perhaps you'll also need the extension cord to be able to put the battery exactly where you want it. The cord as delivered is approximately 40cm.
Bottomline:
Surprisingly bright and versatile lamp (especially if you get the head strap)
