    "The light is more than powerful enough to stun the possums..."

    Yep, it's a Magicshine, for New Zealand, and they've got it in the red-ano and blue-ano light heads.

    Only thing i saw different was the thermal protection claim.Does the newest version of the North American MS have this feature?

    Another feature that's different is theirs has a second lens that comes with it, a "diffuser" lens.
    In the photo gallery you can see beam shots for the two different lenses.

    Might be kind of a neat feature, but their photos don't impress. My guess it that it would probably look better in person, and the photo just isn't doing it justice.

    seems like they are selling currently the MS (or a clone), at lest the picture gallery only shows this style of light!!

    Thus, in the FAQ section they are claiming that the only difference is the led huhuhu...

    But if you click on the "latest news" button on the main page you get this picture:


    It seems they have a new design coming - and this should be the version with temp. protection

    For me, the new design and features seems good - imho better than the MS!

    Sorry for this and thanks for clarification!

    I see that the website is now up to date with pictures and so on....

    I really like the design of your lights!

    Have you ever thougt about getting rid of the flash mode and use instead HIGH/MID/LOW??

    Will you sell the lighthead only also?

    Ummm...they don't list the lens in their specs but they do show it in the box photo. The diffuser doesn't impress me either BUT...if you ran one with a diffuser and one without, that would be interesting. I don't think I could buy one of these though unless I knew more about the low mode. Just how many lumens does it put out on low? I wasn't impressed with the photo of the light on low. For that matter I still don't know what the MS puts out on low? Anyone got a photo of the MS on low? Next, I would want to know what the driver is outputting to the emitter on high. Lastly, the helmet mount sits too high for my tastes.

    Anyway, for $107 USD not a bad deal if you want a bar lamp with some color. If the light plugs are compatible with the MS stuff that would be a big plus. Would be nice to see a beam photo shoot out with the MS.

    A local girl has one and says its indistinguishable from the MS lights.

    ps Good on Bruce for actually taking his own pictures instead of pinching them from MTBR

    I'll sell a light head only - if that's all that is wanted!

    In regards the second lens. I'm still sourcing a diffuser lens for my new model, but it should be with me soon!

    I ride with a diffuser lens on my bars and the clear lens on my helmet - Perfect combo.

    I'll be posting some new photos soon.

    40% power on low mode giving about 350 lumens.

    Cables are compatible with MS etc.

    Cheers
