The MagicShine is relatively new. I can't argue for or against it.
About 200L is the minimum lumen rating you need, I've found. The other cheap option is a Dinotte 200L that runs off AA batteries. The batteries will last a little over 2 hours, but you can just carry extras. They also sell a Lithium Ion version for twice as much money, but it comes with a lith-ion battery that gets a lot longer runtime, though if you get that you might as well get the 400L for a couple of bucks more.
I'm curious to see how the MagicShine works out, what kind of reputation it develops after a while.
