    Has anybody run into any issues with the D-Cell Mags pulling a small current when off? I know the xl-200 does a little bit, but it also has multiple modes and mode memory.

    It's not possible, there's no electrical path when the mechanical switch is off unless something is wrong with your light.

    Very envious of you guys in the US with the Maglite 2D so cheap. Where i live, they haven't even got the one with the new Cree led yet.

    If anyone would be kind enough to buy a 2D with the new Cree XP-E led (from homedepo/wallmart/target/etc) and post it to me, please PM me.

    Thanks.

    Just purchased one of the Cree 2D LED Maglites and loving it. But I am wondering, is it possible to replace the 2 D cells with 6 AA Eneloops? I know the adapters are out there but can the LED handle it?

    Thank you

    That will probably cause an issue, I would use 2AA to D adapters instead.

    Just to be clear, it is not important how many AA's are in the adapter, one, two or three, but that they are in parallel, not series for the multiple cell adapters. Even two series, which would be four total, is a huge overdrive from what the circuit is designed for. I don't know what will happen, but I won't try it on my light!

    If they are in parallel (2 sets of [3AAs in parallel] ), then yes.
