    blackburn x-8 upgrade

    will a SSC P7 emitter fit and operate in a blackburn X-8 system? OR will the Blackburn battery pack work the new Magicshine 900?

    Current probably won't be high enough to get any real light out of the P7.
    Optics would need to be changed as well.
    Try doing this.

    I have done the blackburn X8 q5 mod as mentioned above. Certainly worth the money if you are willing to crack them open. Not a TON better, but the light on mine was a better color and was th light was noticeably brighter.

    I got the lights at cost and did this upgrade. I couldnt ask for a better outcome for the money I paid. That being said, I still want more light.

    Blackburn is awesome about warranty (the lamps are tough, but they have replaced a couple of my mounts). I value that ALOT, but a magicshine looks interesting. I ride alot and dont want something thats gonna fail mid ride some day randomly. Its so inexpensive though!!
