    My tiny sun Folkslight, self contained monster.

    This light recently popped up on my radar, it looks really different / interesting. It has a simple mode with just two outputs and low beam as well as an expert mode which has 12 other groups of modes. Its no looker but it certainly looks interesting

    Go Pro mounting system for ultimate stability
    Twin beam - switchable between wide angle, spot or both
    High beam / low beam
    Replaceable optics
    USB charging
    Built in battery, compact design fits into almost any pocket
    Futureproof and upgradeable - new functionality can be uploaded from factory website!
    2 year no quibble warranty
    Designed and built in Germany to the highest standards.

    Powerful LED light | MyTinySun Folkslight | Exclusive distributor in UK | Magicshineuk.co.uk

    and here's the manual.

    $200 - looks pretty cool, and lot of output. Any North American dealers yet?

    What's the run time on high? Also are batteries 2 18650's and can they be replaced on the trail.

    If so, pretty good.

    They can't be switched on the trail buy the looks of it. But you can open it up and switch them at home.

    1 hour on high. All the details are in the manual mate. I'm hoping to get one to play with but we'll have to wait and see.

    Interesting that it comes with "a Go-Pro mounting system to ensure a secure fit" "which clamps to the bars using a choice of 3 O rings."

    I'd have thought they'd mount the go-pro direct to the bars if the really wanted a "secure fit".

    Yeah it seems an odd choice. But at least there's loads of gopro bar mounts on the market you can switch it to. I use a CnC k-edge mount.

    Did any of you guys order? The boxed contents states the GoPro and handlebar mounts with O-rings are included. The 4 pictures of the product also shows the mounts and why would you show that as part of the product when it's sold seperately. You would show it as accessories or extras. What do you guys think about this?

    I wrote to them and will contact the manufacturer to make sure this is so. I also contacted the US distributor (OpenLightSystems) to find out if or when they'll get the ligth. I bought a OpenLight battery for my Magicshine lights in 2011 which I now use for my Gloworm XS and am very happy with it.

    This new MTS light though would totally rock at that form factor and output, even just for an hour on high. And they are legit (not some cheap Chinese knock-off) and have been making lights for years. I remember when I saw the 2700x 3 years ago I was blown away by it, but just thought it was too expensive.

    M'eh. Looks kind of goofy.

    Designed in Germany???

    Looks like they just took a Yinding/Gemini Duo clone and bolted a battery box on the back of it.

    It already needs upgraded, the manual says they are using XM-L's
