    So let's talk batteries. This light is the same SSC P7 D bin that we see in the Magicshine, and also pretty much the same light as Gemini Lights sells. The big question is the batteries, and more importantly the warranty on them. Are they the same batteries that Gemini and MS use, same manufacturer, etc.? Is there some sort of guarantee they won't be catching on fire or losing 1/2 their charge in a few months time?

    Oh, and BTW I don't think you're supposed to advertise in this area...

    I certainly dont want to do something I shouldn't be. I was told by the ad rep it was fine??
    We stand behind this just like all our other products..100% If your battery is running at half life span in 4 months I'll replace it at no charge..
    Have you seen the Nightrider warranty policy?

    Well is it 900 or 750lm? Are you saying your website is incorrect?
    You wont get 4hrs off that battery driving at 2.8A, I'm guessing the same 2.4A that the MS is driven at? So expect the same output of a little over 500lm.
    With shipping this is 70% more expensive that the DX MS so hardly in the same sea. More like a little private lake beside an expensive resort.

    I'm not concerned about the price, as it's still significantly less than any other comparable light on the market. I have two Magicshine lights from Geomangear, and while they have been good to me so far, this battery issue underscores the need for a better warranty.

    I'd like to see someone put a 3-5 year warranty on these lights, and I would be willing to pay for that. I use mine to commute and night and do MTB night rides 1-2 times each week.

    Not to nitpick, but it seems like Gemini Lights has got you beat: http://gemini-lights.com/products/ge...m-full-package

    Their "full package" is $130 and includes the light head, battery, cable, charger, travel case, helmet kit and headlight mount band. If you could match this price and be a distributor in the USA, then there would be an incentive to buy. Or if you could offer a better warranty, that would be an incentive as well.

    Their website listing shows they include the helmet mount and extension cable, as well as a waist mount (whatever that is) instead of a headband mount. Looks like no pouch though.

    Gloworm offer 18month light head and 12 months for the battery/charger (NZ minimum warranty period). Looks like the same product, price about the same.

    The site has the lumen spec clearly stated??
    This is not the same light as a magic shine. It does have a D bin emitter

    It might not be the same, but it's pretty damn close. Again, what I'm concerned about is the battery and warranty. I don't think I'm alone, as there are lots of people out there that own MagicShines and have seen problems with their batteries. So do everyone a favor and state how your batteries are better than the Magicshine and/or how your warranty will back up the product for more than 90 days.

    True we dont offer the headband. But I think we have priced this deal at a bit lower.
    Total price shipped to the us would be 122.40 as opposed to 150
    That gets you the D bin emitter. We are not newcomers to the lighting market.
    Only the Bicycle side of things.

    I just spent a bit of time looking threw our site and trying to find out where you got 90 days?? Its totally possible I'm missing something?
    Our warranty on this product is 2 years on the light head and 1 yr on the batteries
    I dont know much about the magic shine battery issue/scare, So I can't comment to much on that.. I thought it was mostly a charger issue..

    Like I said, shenanigans.

    Look through your website, posts and "responses" to people's questions if you need some more rope.

    HMMM. There where some drafts made before this was posted that had diff warranty terms. We decided to stay the original course with regards to the warranty.
    I still cant find that statement on the MTBR deal page or elsewhere. I would love a link so I can get it fixed, I did just add a new warranty statement.

    "Rated at 900 lumen's but probably puts out more like 750 or so."

    That statement seems pretty clear and understandable to anyone who has spent more than a day in this forum. It's the same game that almost all of the other companies play as well. He's just up front enough to explain the rated vs. actual.

    Several of our lights carry a lifetime warranty.. with low prices some things need to be cut.
    This warranty should be better than many if not most $400 lights
