    Default Teledyne Big Beam 287EX

    Keep, sell, or mod?

    I canít post a pic from the app, but I have a nice Big Beam lantern, complete with lens guard. Iíve considered modding it with one or more modern hi-output leds and a few li-ion batteries in the box. I doubt thereís much collector value, but I figured I should ask around here first. Thoughts?

    Thanks. I didnít think it had much more value than that, which is why I am on the fence about what to do with it.

    If it was me, I would keep it stock and use it as nostalgia calls for it.

    It's potential is somewhat limited and once modded I know I would regret not leaving it in all its original glory. Like having a classic car and putting ABS and airbags in it....it's just not a classic anymore. I had the same thoughts with my 2D Maglite. I never modded it, but put an LED drop in into it and despite its increased properties, it shortchanged its original greatness.

    Saw a 65/66 chevelle recently with 22" wheels on it.

    Please don't do that to your light elt.

    Thanks for the advice. Every time I consider modding it I decide not to, but that itch comes back every once in a while. I suppose it will stay as it is.
