Terralux TLE-1f 50 lumens drop in in My fulton USGI angle head, Will it damage it?
So what do you guys think? Could my 50 lumens led drop(terralux tle-1f) in will do any damage to my flash light? I used the Terralux drop in.
It is a perfect drop in. You can even use the bulb holder that came with the Fulton. I wish I could find another led upgrade, same size more lumens. But the question is would it get hot enough to damage the flash light? Is it too hot? This is the link for the led I am talking about. http://www.batteryjunction.com/tle-1f.html

No it wont damage it.
Im fixin to do a test of a bunch of LED PR upgrade bulbs. Look in the Incandescent Forum under Sprucing up my MagLites.
I would say from what Ive already gathered....that you arent going to do much better than 1 watt in a standard PR bulb. There are some slightly larger MagLite style PR bulbs that give you 3 watts and about 140 lumens, however they usually heat up and drop output to about half in the first few minutes anyways.
I do have an ebay special coming that claims 90 Lumens, but I dont have it yet, so cant comment on it yet.
And of the 1 watters I have so far, the Craftsman Variable Power is my favorite for beam quality (at least in the C and D MagLites with the stock reflectors). It isnt any brighter than the NiteIze 1 watt Upgrade Bulb or the TerraLUX TLE-1F 1 watt Upgrade Bulb....all three give about the same output. Ive a sneaking suspicion that the NiteIze 1 watt and TerraLUX 1F are the exact same bulb.
