Out of the loop . . . where do we get magicshine battery replacements these days?

I stupidly left my battery pack on my bike recently and it disappeared. I see that Geo Man Gear went out of business a year or so ago and it doesn't look like I can order directly from Magicshine. Anyone know where I can get a reasonably priced battery pack? I had the nice hardcover battery pack that Geo Man Gear provided during the recall. Will I need to get a new charger too or will the old one be compatible? Thx.

Go to Amazon, type "magicshine battery" in the search bar:

http://www.amazon.com/MagicShine-Wea.../dp/B004T9LN7W

Or you can go to DX.com and buy the cheaper ones as low as $14 shipped. My experience with the cheaper ones is that they're fine but not at all waterproof. If you buy the extension cable for $3 and toss it in a waterproof bag, they're fine.

Considering how cheap ($23) these lights have become ... you could just buy a new light entirely, and then give your old light head away to somebody who likes to DIY up their own battery packs. The new light might even have a newer emitter and therefore work better than the old one.

the majority of the 23 dollar lights ( like the amazon one) have a 4400 mah battery, replacement cost $10.53
a 6600 mah battery is 16
a 8000mah is 22. so there are choices out there

all rated at 500 charge cycles

so yes you can get a replacement lamp for 23 bucks. or a std replacement battery for 10.53

prices include shipping
