    Magicshine batteries not covered by the Geoman recall

    I see that Geoman doesn't include the latest magicshine battery in his recall:

    "Geomangear has not sold any of Magicshine's newest battery packs that are enclosed in a hard plastic case, and our engineers have not evaluated those new Magicshine battery packs that other retailers may be offering for sale. Thus, the newest Magicshine battery packs in the hard plastic case are not included in our recall."

    This of course doesn't mean they are not affected by the recall issues, just that he hasn't sold any. But if anyone is interested here is a link to the new batteries. $42 is a bit high, but if you are looking:

    This is the only place I have found sells the newest versions.

    I picked up one of those batteries on eBay. Its actually an alluminum case with plastic end caps. Inside is (what looks like) the same 4 x 18650 battery pack with black plastic wrap that came with the original Magicshine so I wouldn't expect it to be any better or worse but who knows?

    "Hard plastic case" is confusing because I got one a couple months ago that is in a black hard plastic case, it just doesn't have the LCD screen. Is this only referring to the ones with the LCD screen?

    read the recall:
    # Which battery packs are included in the recall?
    All of the Magicshine battery packs that Geomangear sold between June 2009 and November 2010, including all battery packs sold with the MJ-808 and MJ-816 headlight sets and the MJ-818 taillight sets, are included in the recall. The MJ-808 and MJ-818 batteries are either shrink-wrapped and enclosed in a nylon-velcro case or enclosed in a metal canister inserted into a fabric sleeve. The MJ-816 batteries are all enclosed in the metal canister inserted into a fabric sleeve. Geomangear has not sold any of Magicshine's newest battery packs that are enclosed in a hard plastic case, and our engineers have not evaluated those new Magicshine battery packs that other retailers may be offering for sale. Thus, the newest Magicshine battery packs in the hard plastic case are not included in our recall.
