    Default UV mini Mag?

    My question for you all, is how hard would it be to turn a Mini Mag into a UV light. Is this something that one can do by myself? Is it even worth doing or should I just buy one. thanks

    It would take $28 and a couple of minutes to install: http://www.batteryjunction.com/miulvikitwi1.html

    You could buy that, but you are probably better off getting one of these:

    or this, with the host:

    It might be a little below the maglite quality wise, but it is probably brighter.
    If you already have something that can take a p60, then you can just put the dropin in.

    I've got an old NiteIze 3 LED drop in that I soldered 3 UV LEDs from Dealextreme into. It works pretty well, but NiteIze uses some kind of weird hi-temp solder that was a bear to melt

    How did you stand the fumes from the melting metal? Depends how bright you want it to be.

    You have a what? I think it's a Lighthound P60 Q5-WC Cree drop-in module that takes up to 9V in your Brinkman. I should know as I sold it to ya . And yes, any P60-sized module will fit in your Brinkman.

    I'm gonna agree with a few of the others in suggesting the terralux UV drop-in for the minimag. It's quick and easy to install, a great mod for a beginner such as yourself
