MJ-906B reviewed by Mountain Bike Rider(MBR).
——The MJ-906B is the daddy of Magicshine’s range. Busting out a cool 3200 lumens (claimed) from five CreeXM-L2 LEDs it should be enough to turn darkness to light. Burn time is only about one hour fifteen on full but what makes the MJ-906B clever is the ability to control power outputs anywhere from 1% to 100% via a Bluetooth compatible smartphone app.

——Rock-solid battery attachment and connections. Near-infinite customizable options. Rock-solid hardware connectivity. Useful as general external battery pack for charging things.

——Magicshine has been the brand to beat in performance for price terms for several years now. The latest multi-faceted, app tuneable 906B isn’t totally issue free but it’s still an impressively user friendly, bang up to date bargain that continues its affordable benchmark form.
——The Magicshine MJ-906 with 5000 lm is the nominally brightest lamp in this comparison. Obviously, a lamp with such a high output of lumen is above average in terms illumination. The defined light-spread convinced us as well. The MJ-906 is definitely worth € 179.
+ far and wide illumination
+ good value for money
MJ-906 redesigned with Bluetooth chip, more efficient cooling and multi-functional battery pack, the MJ-906B Bluetooth bike light.
The MJ-906 has over the years, became quite popular among the mountain biking, enduro crowd. High output, perfect beam pattern and robust craftsmanship has made it one of the most ideal choices for a handlebar light. The use of a taillight is sometimes not a necessity when you are out on the mountain trails so we took it out for this version of the MJ-906B. You will get the 3200 lumen actual output headlight and its 4 cell LG 18650 Li-ion battery pack and all accompanying accessories. The heat dissipation fins has been improved so you are less likely to run into heat throttling issues with brightness in hot weather.
Like the MJ-906, the 906B Bluetooth bike light comes with factory default lighting modes of 100% 75% 50% 20% and flash. However this could be easily reprogrammed with your mobile device with easily downloadable Magicshine app. There are 4 pre-programmed lighting modes: constant, SOS, Flash and Warning.(quick double flashes) Each mode can be set with a customized brightness level from 1-100% and saved to your device for quick switching. Once the settings have been customized, the power button on top of the lamp head will no longer cycle through factory settings but what’s saved in your mobile device.
For long distance endurance riders, the light’s battery may be charged while on the road with USB 2A input, however for a light like the 906B, the brightness will be capped to the max available input power. Some flickering and flashing may occur on some power banks. Magicshine is not responsible for potential damages caused to the light head or battery due to usage of 3rd party equipment.
