    Default Maglite XL-Series (XL50, XL100, XL200) Owner's Club

    Got mine last month, S/N 000016XXX in black. It's my current EDC and has a 2AA anti-roll ring. Currently using Duracell Ultra AAA, but will be using Energizer EA92 or Duraloops as soon as this set is depleted. I'll probably grab a grey XL100 if I can find one.

    What about you guys?

    No, the serial number is formatted like:
    XL100 000021243
    There's a space after XL100, so if you're going to claim the 100 is part of the serial number, you need to bring the XL as well. Of course, since I doubt they'll just make 1 billion XL100s, and then change over to XL101s, it doesn't seem like the XL100 is really part of the serial number at all.

    Mine is, as you may have guessed, s/n 000021243.

    Hmm, it seems like they've been cranking out a lot of XL100's. I asked Maglite if they could lookup the manufacture date for mine, but they didn't have XL100 S/N's in the database yet.

    Well how ever they have it designated, when you take the bezel off of mine, and look just below the orange gasket/o-ring it says, "100000003508" There's no "XL" printed there, just numbers, and no spaces between any of the numbers. It's exactly as I have typed it in. True, the first three digits are "100", and probably stand for model XL100, but I'm just telling you what's printed on my light.

    The only place on my light that has "XL" printed on it is around the circumference of the bezel. It says,"MAG-LITE LED XL100 -ONTARIO, CA, USA".

    Maybe yours is different than mine.

    Looks like the XL100 prefix was introduced somewhere down the production line...

    Cool, guess they changed the labeling scheme pretty early on. Apologies for calling you out, from my assumption they were the same.

    That bit's the same here.

    Yeah, mine is different -- see photo:

    No appologies necessary! Yup, mine and yours are different. Take away the "XL" and push all the numbers together and that's what mine looks like.

    I looked into that possibility, but the conclusion is disappointing.

I asked them about it, and they told me that the head assembly of the XL100 is similar to the Solitaire's (which I don't own, so I didn't make that connection), and it requires a tool to remove the reflector.

    The repair kit isn't available yet, so for those that have an XL100...be careful with the plastic window!! They offered to fix it for me, but I declined the offer because the problem is small and I need the light to be in my pocket for EDC.

    I seriously would like to see. I got mine for the intention of modding. After seeing the battery holder I forgot about making an 18500 holder for it.

    After some quick tinkering of not being able to diassemble the business end & tailcap I then gave it to my brother. I'll wait till someone else gets one apart, I don't want to throw $40 down the drain.

    The front end of mine has four "scratches" inside the tube. At first I thought these were marks from the "retaining ring" being pressed in but now I think those are just marks from the jig that was used to hold the bodies during anodizing. I tried to unscrew the ring both directions without any heat & gave up after not even the slightest movement. I knew it wouldn't be that easy but oh well.

    Oh and....

    I have found an excellent solution for an XL100 holster.



    The Nite Ize Lite Holster Stretch fits the XL100 perfectly, although you may need to pre-stretch the holster with a D-size light to make it easier to insert the light. The light comes out of the holster easily, with no slipping of the anti-roll ring.

    Intresting, The Nite Ize holster is along with the Ripoff C0-30 are the ones being evualated in my replacement post. The other standard issue item for us is a Leatherman Wave, the 2 side compartments of the Wave holster that are made of stretch elastic hold AA, AAA or 123,s quite securely so that you have a charged replacement set ready to go.

    I am somewhat concerend about quality of construction of the Nite Ize product as they have not held up as well as the Ripoffs Holster.

    I can't believe the XL100 isn't even on thier website yet. How ridiculous! They don't even have the 3AA MiniMag on there, and it's been out for a long time. Someone over at Mag is asleep at the wheel. Why wouldn't you have these advertised on the website when they are released (at the latest)???? If it were up to me, I'd be advertising them on the website as soon they were approved for prodution so the general public would know to expect them soon.

    3AA Mini Mag LED? That one has been discontinued, that's why it has disappeared from their site. Only the 2AA, 2D, and 3D were upgraded to the Luxeon Rebel, the 3AA and 4D LED models were dropped.

    I just joined the club, though I will be out of the club in a few hours. I bartered this for some RC car parts with a friend before I ever bought it so I'll be an XL100 owner for only a few hours. Eventually, I'll get one for my own. As far as mods are concerned, I have some ideas but I need to buy a few things first.
