    Default Maglite ML150LR Closer To Release

    I think Maglite announced this 1082 lumens rechargeable light last May, but looks like it's getting close to release. They now have a win it before you can buy it promotion.

    Interesting, I wonder how they got them - because they're not available on Maglite's website yet.

    The Bay had a few of the latest warm beam'd Mag's too.

    I figure it best to wait for my favorite dealer to get them. That way I know what they have was meant to be sold. Those others may be demo's, rejects or worse... fake.

    I emailed Mag about it a week or so ago and the reply stated it would be on the website "within 30 days or so."

    So maybe the last week in Feb or first week in March?
    I'm ready. I want one for myself and 2 others for gifts.

    This looks pretty nice for a full size light with both high output AND runtime. Mag has come out with some pretty decent stuff lately.

    Mag has a contest to win one before you can buy one. I entered.

    When I win this light Iíll let you all know how I like it. The last time I won something it was a duffel bag at a gym in Las Vegas. That prize sucked. This Maglite will be cool.

    Apparently itís C cell size which is a shame. It probably wonít fit in my belt ring.

    maglite is working on a shortie version of the ml150. It's only a prototype at this point.

    What belt ring are you referring to? If its what I'm thinking I don't see why it still wouldn't work as the heads are still roughly the same size.

    Itís a Maglite brand belt loop for D cell lights.

    If the head is too small it might not sit properly or fall out at the wrong angle.

    Looks like this 150 will be along the same size as a 3C ML50 toggie. If you're familiar with that one or any fellow officers use one....

    I donít think Iíve seen a C cell Mag in the wild. Everyone I know with a Mag has a 3-4D. Iím sure I can find an old baton ring or track down a C Mag belt loop though

    I'll measure the OD of the bezel when I get home. But I think the lens is same as the ML25 where it's slightly above 40mm.
    So figure OD to be about 45-48mm, but I'll confirm it later today.

    Not sure about the ML150, but the old C cell Mags fit in the old baton rings used for wooden batons and I am sure some of the open ended holsters for the stinger series would work too.

    We havenít been issued long batons for many years but Iím sure I could dig up one of the old baton rings. Iím sure theyíre in a box somewhere with the trench coats, leather jacket and spare Maglite bulbs.

    There are a couple of good gear sites where I could pick one up anyway. Iíve been meanling to get myarlf an ML300LX because I like the look of them but this new Magcharger looks like a beast and Iím hoping theyíre available down here fairly soon too.

    The old metal baton rings might be better than Mag's plastic rings in that they are harder to break (I have broken several of the plastic D cell Mag rings, I think I had a coated metal ring at one time that lasted longer, I don't remember what happened to it), although uncoated metal rings might wear the finish on a Mag. BTW I hated the carrying a D cell Mags in the rings, especially when running. If I were looking to carry a ML150 on a duty rig today I would probably go with something like this:

    Looks basically like a lithium powered magcharger. Only problem I have with mag led lights is the ANSI lumens and runtime specs. They always drop in output after a short time and give steadily dropping output. Which is too bad as this will be a buck driven light and should give constant output till dead

    The ML50 head at the barrel is about 30mm. The OD of the bezel about 49mm.

    I used an analog caliper so figure +/- a mm or 2.

    The ML150 looks very similar in size (in the pix I've seen)

    Like xxo said, very much like the Stinger. I use Stinger anti-roll devices on ML25's and a 50 (now)

    In the rules it says it may take up to 5 days to notify the winner. There's also a mailing address to send a request for the winners name. And if you do win you have to reply within a few days with the address to which you'd want them ship it. So, still waiting... It would be nice though, right?
