Magicshine has already shown in its short history that it can deliver the best in range of bike lights. But the MJ-816E has gone a step further in stamping the brand’s authority on the market. The Magicshine MJ-816E is so far the most versatile of the range of bike lights from the house of Magicshine. The lighting just became better and brighter. With an iconic mickey-mouse design, the light comes with a central larger lens with two smaller lenses on either side. The two assisting lenses amplify the strength and reach of the light’s throw. An orange peel reflector helps in stretching the distance of the light’s beam. The two lights on either side are made from very high quality optical lens and therefore play a significant role in bringing out the exceptional output of the Magicshine MJ-816E.
The upgrade to the MJ-816E has increased the output to a whopping 1800 lumens. Additionally the rider can also select between using the two sidelights for a shorter but dispersed beam, whereas the central light alone for a longer more concentrated beam. Or the rider can simply choose to have all of them on at the same time, thereby making it easier for commutes in near darkness or even the middle of the night.The light is itself easy to mount onto the frame. It comes with the tried and trusted o-rings in two different sizes – one for the standard sized bars and the other for bars that are oversized. The button to control the functioning of the light can be mounted easily onto the handlebars giving the rider the comfort of changing the settings with his thumb, for wide angle, for distance or both. The Magicshine MJ-818E comes with the MJ-6002 battery, which includes 4x100 Li-ion batteries forming an 8.4v 4400mAh. The battery comes with a protective bag for its safety that can be mounted onto the bars, and provides an impressive runtime of 150-180 minutes. The light uses 2x CREE XP-E ultra bright (an upgrade) LED lights which illuminate in a way that it can make your nights become like the day. The glass lens used for the lights is anti-reflection and also scratch resistant.
There is an additional 3-level control provided, which helps in adjusting the brightness of the beams. The sidelights alone provide a beam strength of 800 lumens, which means that even if you choose the dispersed beam for rides when there is more to be kept an eye on the sides, there is a guarantee of brightness and impressive output. Having the command module for the lights next to your thumb makes is that much easier as compared to previous times when you had to bend and adjust lights from controllers strapped to the frame. The command module also has a built-in fuel gauge, which shows the battery levels and signals you immediately when they are low.
