The magnetization properties of the endohedral cluster superconductor Mo8Ga41 are studied by sensitive Hall-probe magnetometry. The temperature dependence of the lower critical magnetic field H-c1 is obtained and compared to theoretical models accounting for single-gap and two-gap superconductivity. Data can be described by both models with minor differences. These results are confronted with our previous measurements which evidence that the system is inherently single-gap s-wave superconductor but minor additional phases are present also in seemingly perfect samples. We discuss how presence of such additional phases with varying size of the penetration depth and H-c1 field is reflected in magnetization measurements which could lead to misinterpretation of the multigap superconductivity in Mo8Ga41.
