Instantly convert your low powered Maglites into a SUPER POWERED LED flashlight!

This easy to use dropin bulb will take your under performing Maglite flashlight and turn it into a modern day champion.  Three Cree XHP-50 J4 bin emitters and the Adventure Sport mosfet driver pound out over 5,000 retina searing lumens (output of the bulbs is based on use of NIHM rechargeable cells.  Also a great option is is two 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 ebay 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. 

This bulb is for use with the voltage of 6D cells ONLY, not more or less (NIMH are best).  However if you want power it with other cells such as a pair of 26650s so you can use it in a 2D, 3D,4D or 5D here is how to do that.

Guppydrv ​Instructions


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.

MAGNUM Maglite

Purchase this and you can truthfully be the guy that says (in my Crocodile Dundee voice)....thats not a Maglite.........THIS is a Maglite. Best upgrade I've bought yet to bring that old Maglite off the shelf and back into bright lights.

Maglite Perfection!!

Beautiful beam! No negative artifacts. Tint is so pure that it looks almost like my BLF 348 with it's Nichia 219BT. The CRI is very good. Only slightly cooler than the Nichia 219BT. It has a wonderful flood beam with decent throw. People are amazed that it is a Maglite! I run it with the ASF 26650 Body Sleeve Kit, high temp glass lens, Silver Plated Copper Core Switch Tower Spring, & shorty tail cap spring with a bypass wire. This is the ultimate Maglite LED Upgrade! Conclusion: Matt Smith, The Maestro Of Maglites!

The Ultimate Maglite FLOOD Bulb

At first, I was thinking about buying the Maglite ML300L LED 4D as my first over 1,000 lumen flashlight. But finding out about this bulb made me change my mind VERY quickly. I converted my 4D Incandescent Maglite into a 6D with an extension tube and slapped this puppy in it. I used 6 Rayovac Alkaline D batteries since i don't have any 18650 cells. But even knowing that Alkaline D batteries weren't the best means of powering this bulb, it is still amazing how much light this thing makes. It's a super floody bulb, it doesn't have much throw at all. I've given this bulb 4 stars, mainly because you have to sacrifice the Maglite's ability to change the focus of the beam. But other than that; considering that Maglite's current 1,000 lumen flashlight is around $100 and this upgrade bulb is around $144 (shipping and glass lens) that fact that your getting over 4 times the light output and the ability to program the bulb is a very compelling offer.
Plus, i think its funny that you can make an old Maglite brighter than anything Maglite is making today.

Outstanding!

Thank you sir for putting together such a great resource. This video is a perfect resource for those of us with incandescent Maglites which can't match today's standards for light output.

What an amazing upgrade

I love this superbulb! Creates an absolute wall of light in my 3D Maglite, and don't even use it on high most of the time. Using, two 32650 batteries, the run time has been wonderful. Didn't even need to take off anodizing from the tailcap. I just spread out the base of the shorty spring and it at the original spring placement just fine. I'm terrible at selecting the modes for the guppydrv however, and left it at the stock setting.
