I purchase a Gemini Titan Led light from Gemini. It wasn't so much that my Magic Shine has fail or anything like that but rather, I saw other reviews mentioned the reflector has more throw and better tint. So I bought one and decided to do a mini review of the light here. The total cost of the unit is $130 USD. This is higher than a MS900 but it does come with longer runtime battery, case, a blink mode that blink on/off instead of SOS or super fast blink, and a 1 year warranty. The downside is there's a no return policy.
I placed the order on a Friday morning and the unit was in my mailbox by the following Wednesday afternoon here in the westcoast. Not too bad for a foreign shipping. The box and packaging is pretty much standard. There is an extension cable which is not in the picuture but was included in the package. Sorry, but some of the picutres may not be sized properly to fit on your screen, you may need to set your screen size or just scroll left/right to view the whole picture. Here is the unit:
Here is a Magic Shine side by side for comparison, the MS900 is on the left:
Couple of things I noted. The hooks for the O-Ring seem more thicker than the MS900. The cable and connector is almost identical to the MS. They are interchangeable with the battery pack. The strain relief is similar to the MS which means too many tugging on the connector will break the insulation. The switch cover feel better than the MS. I can take my nails and pry the cover off the switch but harder with the Titan. That same switch is slightly smaller and is recess in the housing more so than the MS. If you are wearing thick winter gloves, it might be harder to press the on switch.
The next thing I done was a charge cycle and amoerage check before doing a runtime test.
