I've had a Mag Charger for about 12 years. Last night I noticed it's light was fluctuating a bit so I checked the battery. It had leaked a little acid into the end cap and the spring had some corrosion on it too. Time for a new battery as it was still on the original from 1997!
Anyway while I was at Battery Junction getting a new battery for it I noticed Terralux has a new led upgrade out. It's a redesign of the TLE-300MR that now puts out 700 lumens instead of 600. Even better and what I like the most is it has 3 brightness settings. Full, half, and a "moonlight" mode that goes for 8 hours. The only problem is it's $80! This is what I spent on the whole flashlight.
I'm probably going to pick one of these up after Christmas but I'd like to know if anyone here is currently using a Terralux 600 lumen upgrade on their Mag Charger and if so how has it held up? I'd hate to drop $80 on an led and have it burn up in a year. I haven't been able to find much info on this. Just a couple of videos from last year.
