Magicshine P7 (MJ-808) Light
#11
"mashley" Wrote:Great review by the way Blackers, cheers!!

No worries.

This is where most people get them from... http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.25149

I got mine from here as I have family in the states, and they speak English so its easy to ask questions by email.... http://www.geomangear.com/index.php?main...rers_id=22

They are also cropping up on eBay.

The main thing to note is you only get a 90 day Warranty. As I mentioned in the review a UK company are now importing and selling them for £150 with a 12 month warranty. But I would just buy two from Dealextreme if I were you if Warranty is a concern.

I have one of these lights and must admit quite impressed thus far.

Used it in conjuction with  my nuke proof. Nuke on Helmet, magicshine on bars. Seemed to light up the trail pretty well. Also tried the magicshine on its own and it was more than enough to ride at speed with.

Havent tested the run time yet so cant vouch for battery life.

Will get another at some point I think.  

Took a while to ship.

Thats good to hear as I cant actually get out and use mine!!

If anybody has specific questions or concerns I would highly recommend getting in touch with Geoman in the US. He is very active on the US forums and got back to me in 30 minutes when I emailed and asked if the chager is a smart charger. It is a smart charger by the way.

Mashley - Mine was ordered on the 19/9 and arrived on the 24/10. Paid £50 but worth buying the torch for the helmet also if you have the funds.

They're selling on ebay for £100 (seriously thinking of ordering a load and doubling my money).

Lenghty US thread featuring input from Geoman. Be conscious that early models were unreliable and the current batch are said to be much better.

How long did it take to arrive? I'm on holiday now until next Wednesday so won't be riding but when I'm back could I have a look at it please?

You've got my number so give me a text when you get back and you can test ride it

Do they cut down postage if we order more? Let me know if you are going to order.

And very slow sometimes. They do it in batches, so they ship once a certain number have been purchased. So if you buy early in the batch you can be waiting a while. Some people report waits of up to 1 month. But at £50 for a light this good who cares!!

Geoman in the US charge about £20 for shipping. But if you dont mind paying the extra I expect they will have it with you much quicker.
