    We just got the first of many battery shipments in, so we are ready now. Recall notices are going out to customers today, so the process is underway now.

    Hey I got the email today. You guys sent it to my old address I think. I've moved since I bought my light from you guys. How do I get a new set of recall instructions sent to me? I'm waiting until I get my new battery, and then I think I'm going to order another light from you. I've just been waiting to see how this recall stuff was going to shake out. Thanks.

    The best way to handle that is to use the Contact Us form on our site and report your new address using the "Customer Contact Info Changes" option in the dropdown. The Recall Admin Firm also ran the database through the National address change system so it may have already been amended if you registered with one of those Post Office address change services when you moved. Thanks for the support

    So what if I were to order a magicshine 900 today, would I get the newer battery or have to wait awhile for it?

    You can choose on our site, we currently have lightsets with the GeoManGear 4.5Ah battery and also lightsets with the Open-Light Systems batteries. They are 2 separate listings and we are shipping lightsets with either today.

    Thanks for the support

    We just posted a few extra pics of stem mounted and seatpost mounted battery on the product listing so you can get a better idea of just how compact the new GeoManGear battery is.

    I have not received the email today. I just used the "contact form" on the Geomangear site asking for confirmation that I am included in the recall.

    Great to hear they arrive on time for the season start!

    Good job!

    P.S. Haven't received the e-mail yet either. I don't expect it to be immediate so I'll contact if it doesn't appear next week.

    We have found many of the broadcast emails are blocked as spam which is why the official Recall Notices are sent via US Postal Service. The email was a headsup to keep an eye on your mailbox next week for the Recall Notice.

    I'm definitely in the recall date range, but no email. Guess I'll wait and see.

    Lots of spam filters have been blocking broadcast emails, the recall notice is coming via US Postal Service, the email was a headsup to keep an eye out in the mail next week. If it hasn't arrived in your email inbox by now it's most likely been blocked by your ISP at server level.

    My recall message must have been blocked as spam. Could someone paste a copy here so I can read what it says?
    Thanks.
