Output and Runtime levels
The Magicshine MJ906B arrives at the factory with output modes set to 100% 75% 50% 20% and Strobe levels. However, the outputs can be easily reprogrammed using any smartphone via the dedicated app provided by the company and also available at the Google store or the Apple store.
The flashlight has 4 pre-programmed lighting modes: constant light, SOS, Flash and signaling (Double quick flash). Each mode can be set with a custom brightness level between 1% and 100% and saved on the application, ready to be used when needed. Furthermore, different profiles can be created, with different output sets, based on each specific need.
After having configured a mode and after synchronizing with the torch, the switch will no longer manage the factory settings but those saved on the mobile device.
The connection to Bluetooth is very simple. Just power the torch, open the application on the smartphone with the active BT and start pairing the devices. Once paired the torch will be ready to be configured, you can choose one of the saved modes, and it can be directly controlled by the smartphone.
Following the runtime curve on the "High" level The body and materials The Magicshine MJ906B is light and compact and was born to be used on the handlebars of a bicycle. The kit includes torch, battery pack with relative fastening tear bands, connection cables and rubber o-rings for attachment to the handlebar.
The torch equipped with 5x XM-L2 Cool White LEDs able to deliver 3200 lumens to the turbo. The multilent is TIR for a well focused beam with an opening angle of about 20 degrees. On the head there are deep dissipation fins that allow excellent heat dispersion especially when the torch is used on high levels. Anodizing is perfect, smooth and opaque. In the upper part there is an electronic rubber switch, very large, quite protruding and for activation requires a fair amount of pressure. It offers excellent feedback and good grip to the touch. The battery pack consists of 4 18650 LG cells (non-removable) connected together in series and in parallel (2P2S) with an output of 7.2V and a capacity of 5200mAh.
This also acts as a powerbank thanks to the 5V / 2A USB output. A series of status LEDs show the remaining capacity of the cell:
• Three LEDs lit, charge between 100% and 65%
• Two LEDs lit, charge between 64% and 30%
• One LED on, charge between 30% and 10%
• One led flashing: charge less than 10%
A rubber cap protects the USB interfaces from water and dirt.
A small button next to the Micro-USB port lets you turn on or turn off the torch power. At the opposite end we have instead the connection interface. A proprietary cable allows the power supply to be carried from the battery pack to the torch.
The lower part is rubberized to have a good grip on the bicycle frame. Two holes allow the passage of tear strips to lock the battery pack. The installation of the torch on the handlebar is very simple and is done very quickly, in fact it is enough to place the torch and use the thick rubber O-ring to lock it. The seal is good also because the torch of the rubber parts that in contact with the handlebar guarantee an excellent grip. The flashlight will rarely rotate or move from the installation position. The torch is programmable and can be controlled from a smartphone via Bluetooth. Here is the kit mounted on the bike ... ... here are some Nightshot ... Final considerations
The MJ906B is an interesting bicycle flashlight with innovative features: certainly the most interesting aspect is certainly the fact of being able to configure it, manage the various outputs directly from the dedicated application via Bluetooth technology.
The power is good, the maximum level allows to light the road up to 30-40m per day. For normal driving, at an average speed of 15-30km / h, the level at 40/50% of power is more than sufficient.
The runtime is excellent thanks to the presence of a high performance 7.2V 5200mAh battery pack. The adjustment is good, the dissipation is excellent thanks to the deep dissipation fins on the torch body.
The factory set user interface is simple and based on 5 cycle levels at each click of the switch. The icing on the cake is instead the possibility of being able to configure the interface at will, with a completely customizable number of outputs and intensity. It is also possible to save different custom modes on the application and recall them with a click when needed.
The battery pack also has a power bank function thanks to the USB 5V / 2A output it is equipped with.
The installation of the kit takes place very quickly. The torch is fixed via an o-ring while the battery pack is fitted with tear bands.
The color is cold, around 6500K, the beam quite regular despite the TIR multilent.
Things to improve: using more efficient LEDs like XP-L or XP-G2, creating a battery pack with removable cells and using a neutral color For all the rest, nothing to say, it's a valid and quality product, definitely to recommend !!!
Thanks for reading, and we can discuss it here !

is it possible to buy a "proper" clip for this light rather than use the O ring?
