    Khani – did you box say 1200lumen on it? Tempted to say sod it and just use it. May well order another in the future although it may be a Smudge version as not convinced by the battrery pack on this one!

    Mine got here this morning. Slightly concerned that the box I’ve got states that the light is 900lumens and a SSC instruction manual where as my XML-T6 confirmation email says 1200lumen!! Pretty sure they’ve given me a P7!

    Rich – did yours say 900lumen on the box too then? Been told I can send it back and get a replacement but they couldn’t sort it out on the live chat function. Seems ok and will probably do although definately needs a flood lense

    jamie – mine still says that too

    Might be here tomorrow then, as nowt came today.

    To be honest, I am toying with the idea of flipping mine as soon as I get it and buying one of smudges lights. £40 extra seems a fair price to pay for a much safer charger/battery combo.

    That was my original dilemma but didn’t want to pay over £30 for a light when I wasn’t sure how I would fare night riding having not done it in over 10 years. Who knew I would love it and accept the rustling in the hedges as a non-scary version of the Blair Witch… I will get safer version off him in the new year I reckon. This will do for now!

    Also mine came in a later delivery to the normal post

    Khani, which lens? Any chance of before and after beam shots?

    Yes my box and instructions say P7 900 ‘lumins’, as per my other post.

    My charger blew up on the first plug in, booo!!

    I got one of these from the states, about three quid and it came in five days, no beam shots as I only have a phone camera and it’s crap,

    I’m thinking about investing in something decent this year

    I’ve had a few dx torches that have all failed. Last year I got a fenix and a 4sevens torch, and the sodding batteries have leaked in the 4sevens one, welding it shut

    I’m considering something by troutie or light & motion or four4th but still trying to choose

    For the DX XML peeps – how long does it take to charge huge battery pack, presumably the red light turns green?

    @Hammy

    XML Led bike light distributer (not magicshine) I’d recommend:
    http://www.mtbbatteries.co.uk/

    One of numerous UK sites selling the Magicshine brand:
