    Will I turn into a Maglite fan once again?

    I too used a xl50 clip on my 200. I set mine on the lens/bezel side of the body. That way i can set it on a flat surface and get a slight upward point of the beam. Main reason is so that i can slide the light onto the brim of my cap and double as a headlamp for working with the light hands free...

    Will I turn into a Maglite fan once again?

    Regular eneleoops worked well as well. Pros just give that extra bit of run time. How you liking the 200? My MagTac rechargeable just sorta sits in its cradle awaiting the unknown. The most use it saw was with one of the recent hurricanes and working staging areas. As mentioned earlier, i got...

    Lens Design - flat or dome lens?

    Its not exactly a Surefire. Its a Boker but designed with a Surefire P60 bulb. It had a curved plastic lens. The lens rested on a lip inside the head. It was sealed with an O-ring but secured in place with some sort of adhesive. My plan was to simply run a bead of sealant along that lip and...

    Lens Design - flat or dome lens?

    Right. I guess I should have worded it more properly. I understand that the output will be the same but as you say the perceived output will differ depending on shape of beam. Most lenses i see are flat, but there is the occasional curved lens. I'm looking for a less permanent adhesive. I...

    Lens Design - flat or dome lens?

    So I've got this P60 Boker light that I purchased in ~2004. Carried it quite a bit but had to box it up because reasons. One of those reasons being, the heat from the P60 lamp cause the curved plastic lens to crack. I recently pulled it out of a box, removed the cracked lens and took a caliper...

    RARE MAGLITES

    Is ditching the body due to corrosion or unable to to get the cells out? For cleaning corrosion on those, aside from a vinegar soak, a dremel has various attachments that can work well. I've taken corrosion bubbles down with some careful scrubbing with round files. I've got 3 mini mags on...

    RARE MAGLITES

    When you pitch them do you ditch the whole light? I'll gladly take them off your hands. My lucky streak on the 1984s continue. I grabbed a silver stamped bezel with the sheath, pocket clip and a red lens. Its i near perfect shape. I'm trying to upload pics but imgur app isn't cooperating.

    Maglite AA repair kit - for incan or LED or both?

    As everyone has deduced, those kits are for incan mags. I have yet to see rebuild kits for LEDs. I feel many of those incan kits are left over from the days when Mag had service centers to supply with parts. If youre needing parts for an LED, call Mag directly, tell them what you need and theyll...

    RARE MAGLITES

    Recent acquisition: 1984 Mini Maglite - Stamped Bezel - all original Managed to pick it up for $9. Looks ever so slightly used. No corrosion. A few scuffs on the body. I wager this thing floated around in a drawer or glove box and never really got used. Lucky for me. The next week i picked up...

    Will I turn into a Maglite fan once again?

    I've got the MagTac rechargeable. Nice light. I got the 1st gen though. The eco mode has a short runtime. But its a perfect nightstand light next to the .45 to always be ready if something goes bump in the night. I highly recomend the XL200. Its been my edc for about 5 years now. I always...

    Will I turn into a Maglite fan once again?

    I dont know if i agree with that statement of them being less than the true junk at the box stores. Those junk lights are truly bad build quality with even worse materials. If price point is an argument; sure, you can buy a 6 pack of cheap Ozark brand 3 aaa LED lights for $10. Can you say those...

    magnetic/wireless charging

    I'm sure someone will come in and correct me but my thinking is this... From what ive seen, wireless charging works on basically the same principal as a transformer; electrical windings so-far apart that allow a reduced level of current to travel between them from the line side to the service...

    Mini Maglite 2 AA assembly in a Mini Maglite 3 AA body ?

    So I have a 3 AA MiniMag. It does not work. LED assembly is burnt out, i assume. I also have a few 2AA Minis. One has a corrosion bubble inside the barrel that makes Eneloops nearly get stuck inside. I took it apart to try and dremel that bubble down.(i know...i know better. But i dont like to...

    Rechargeable C and D Cell - Recommendations

    I do have quite a few of the adapters. They work well and i totally agree with your point on functionality, but the C and D cells have a much higher capacity overall. Thats what im going for with the C and D cells.

    Rechargeable C and D Cell - Recommendations

    What is a reputable brand of NiMH C and D cells? I know Energizer are out. Its a shame Panasonic doesn't produce eneloops in those sizes. It seems like Tenergy is fairly popular. But I've come across reviews of bad quality control. Powerex seems good as well but the price of nearly $30 for a...
