This review is from: Magicshine MJ-872 1600 Lumen Rechargeable LED Front Bike Light - Super Bright (Misc.)
This has taken cycling to the next level. The brightness from this light is phenominal. As mentioned I dip the light to 30% setting on the road as it would be dazzling to oncoming traffic. Off road I use the 100% but have found the 50% setting more than adequate. It is a wide beam of light that shows up a good 20m ahead and approx 5m wide, I can't believe you would need more.
My only gripe is the battery indicator on the back of the light, mine goes from green >75% to blue >50% in minutes and then to orange >25% within about 20 minutes on the 100% setting. I do appear to get near the advertised ride time out of the battery, but the indicator doesn't seem to indicate the true battery level and should just be used as a guide that the battery is running down.
All in all made a huge difference to me and I can now go back to using the offroad paths to work in the winter.
