This easy to use dropin bulb will take your under performing Maglite flashlight and turn it into a modern day champion. Three Cree XP-L HI emitters and the Adventure Sport mosfet driver pound out over 2,000 retina searing lumens (output of the bulbs is based on use of NIHM rechargeable cells. Also a great option is is one IMR 26650 cell. Alkaline cells will power the bulb up at a reduced output so are best used as backup). Don't be fooled; many other sellers make claims of having multi thousand lumen flashlights and parts, however few of them can even touch their advertised numbers.
Unlike these other lights Adventure Sport Flashlights™ Maglite LED upgrades come with the Actual Lumen Guarantee. Because of the superior driver performance and use of only premium grade components our products deliver on output. So, if your tired of being underwhelmed by competitors products, why not step into something great today.
To install the 2000 lumen dopin, start by unscrewing and removing the head of your Maglite flashlight. Next remove the factory reflector, bulb retaining ring and bulb from the switch tower (if you have the bi-pin bulb you can press down on the tower to eject the plastic bulb holder). Next remove the bezel and lens from the top of the Maglite head. Insert the 2000 lumen bulb into the head. Place the lens over the dropin and thread the bezel back down until snug. Screw the head back on to the maglite until it is just "snug" onto the body.
This bulb is for use with the voltage of 3 D cells ONLY. 3x NIMH cells are best, but 3 Alkaline cells will power the bulb, but at a reduced output. Maximum power will be reduced to around 50% using alkaline cells. If you want to use this in a larger mag like 4,5, or 6 cell you can fill up the extra space using these dummy batteries. https://asflashlights.com/-diy-parts/35-dummy-c-an-d-cell-batteries.html
If your Maglite is very old, you can double check to see if this bulb fits it by doing this.
In addition to the astounding output the new version of A.S.Flashlights Superbulb™ comes with the most flexible user interface to date. Created by BLF member DrJones this UI has something to offer for everyone.
The bulb is a simple 3 mode Low, Medium, High with memory by default, however its easily customized for those who like a taste of something different.
Run time approximation:
High: 50 min
Med: 3.5 hours
Low: 87 hours
DrJones Guppy2drv. This firmware allows the ultimate in user customizability, with 24 built-in mode groups, that the user can select via a series of button presses and the option of user programmable turbo timer that will automatically step the power down to 50% after the set time is hit (see below for instructions).
User Selectable Groups:
To switch mode groups: rapidly tap the switch 8 times, the light will then enter the programming mode and begin to flash. With the light in programming mode, tap the switch the same number of times as your desired mode group. The light will blink and your mode group will be memorized.
Example: To select mode group 3, tap the switch 8 times quickly to enter programming mode. As soon as the light enters programming mode and beings flashing, tap the switch three times. The light will blink to recognize the mode group change.
To set the turbo timer: rapidly tap the switch 8 times, the light will then enter the programming mode and begin to flash. With the light in programming mode, tap the switch 30 times to enter the turbo timer set mode. The light will then switch to 100% power. When the light is at the desired temperature for the turbo step down, turn the light off. The turbo timer will then be set. The turbo timer steps the light down to 50% regardless of the mode group set.
To disable the turbo timer simply go into program and cut it off in >3 seconds.
