Not sure we are talking about the same light. I just got the MJ-808E XML head from geomangear and it does not "remember" the power setting and always comes in the "off" state when plugged in. The remote switch is not an option.
Few notes for those considering it:
- It takes 0.8A on full at 12.5V, there are 3 levels of brightness and no blinker.
- It has a clearly defined round spot (a bit small to my taste, I am used to flood beam) and rather weak flood area.
- The color in the spot is a pleasant white (warmer than my trailtech HID) with no blue tint (if anything there is a very slight greenish tint to it). There is some blue tint in the flood area but not in the spot.
- Mounting may be a problem for some, the light does not pivot and sits very close to the handlebar (uses rubber rings instead of a usual clamp). It may interfere with the cabling because of proximity to the handlebar (it does on our bikeE recumbent had to move things around to mount it).

Something must have changed since then with a newer or different model. If you don't want it and can't return it, I might be able to buy it from you.
