Fantastic Upgrade!

Installed this in my old 2D Maglite with a homemade sleeve for 2 18650's, polished the old plastic lens with ultra fine wet sand paper and plastic polish and found a spring that fits. Better than new!

The old exon is like a candle to this, Led bulb gets a little hotter than the exon. I have dropped the maglite to many times and thankfully it still works! Its brighter than some cheap lights and find to be just bright enough for my needs with out disturbing my neighbors.

Pros
- BRIGHT
- Easy to install
- Simple! Click on, Click Off
- Flashlight does not get hot
- With the 18650's its now rechargeable!
- Cost, Bulb and batteries is cheaper than the cost of a new LED Maglite with alkaline batteries.


-Cons
- Lumens, Less than a new 2D LED Maglite with Alkaline batteries.
- One Mode, But who needs more??

For Lithium conversion remember to get Good,SAFE Lithium batteries and a GOOD charger!

30 year old 6 D cell Mag

Easy install. Made such a difference. So much better then the original incandescent bulb. Increased brightness and range. Also replaced the plastic lense with glass and again, so much better. I haven't used this light in years and now it's back in service. It is rather large. I leave it next to my back door. Good stuff. Thanks.

An Excellent Upgrade!

I just bought myself a 3D cell Maglite that had a great camo design l liked, but the problem was I couldn't deal with weak output of 45 lumens. This is a great upgrade for anyone using a Maglite with those old incandescent bulbs and wow....it makes a huge difference! Add the fact that you still retain the focus and even that increases the spot size. Cheap in price, but NOT cheap in quality. Excellent.
