These modes can be controlled by the silver control ring built around the collection of LEDs. MagicShine rear lights have always measured their success on the basis on the clarity and luminosity of their product. In this case the combination of the 12 LEDs generates enough output to be distinctly visible from a distance.

The light serves all purposes and is dependable even in misty and foggy conditions. The choice of output modes allows you to alter your requirements for lighting according to the weather and the conditions.
The rear light consumes little power as compared to other lights in the segment, thereby lessening your charging hours for the light and assuring you of your visible presence even if you plan to stay out there longer than usual .The MagicShine MJ-818 aces every test in the book is only deservedly given the credentials of being the brightest rear bike light of 2014.
