Background Information:

Light and Go is a company based in Korea known as Wonderbike and they get their light sets manufactured in China by Magicshine. They are looking  for US distributors at the time this review was published so all sales and service is handled directly from Korea.

Their lights have very similar build and packaging to the original Magicshine MJ-808 light. But the light heads are different and the four light heads reviewed here look like new designs. Wonderbike owns all the molds for these light heads and thus these should be exlusive to Light and Go.

They are aware of all the battery and charger problems Magicshine has encountered and they explained to us that they have taken steps to resolve them. They’ve gone with better parts and gone through many rounds of testing on the batteries, chargers, wires, etc.

The lights reviewed here are:

Light and Go Firefly – $80 – 400 lumen claimed

Light and Go Owlet - $90 – 700 lumen

Light and Go Fireball – $130  - 1100 lumen

Light and Go Foride – $150 – 1400 lumen

Manufacturer Specs:

  • Maximum luminous flux of 1100 lumens
  • Extremely wide 24.4 degree beam

    Just received a Fireball from LightandGo – 9 days delivery on the free service to the UK so pretty quick compared to DealExtreme.
    This light blows my Magicshine MJ-836 away completely. It’s amazing value for the amount of light output. The MS 836 is claimed to be 700 lumens but the Fireball on it’s lowest is equivalent to the 836 on full power.
    I’m going to Ebay the Magicshine and get another Fireball – one on helmet and one on the bars would be awesome.
