    Three "C" Batteries in a 2D Mag Help

    I'm trying to put a Malkoff 2D-3D module in the 2D body with three "C" batteries. I just like the size of the 2D....the 3D seems like a baton to me. Will the three "C" batteries in a 2D Maglite be as bright as three "D" batteries in a 3D Maglite?...If not, I'll probably just stick with the 3d...

    Three "C" Batteries in a 2D Mag Help

    qip, thanks so much for the help and pics. Is that a 2D Mag modded for three "C" batteries in the photos? I'm glad to hear that a grinding disk will do the job....I read that lye was required to deanodize the tail cap.

    Three "C" Batteries in a 2D Mag Help

    Hey guys, I've heard that three "C" batteries will fit in a 2D Maglite, but I'm looking for detailed instructions and tips on how to modify the spring, tail cap, and the best sleeve to use to reduce rattling. Pics would be great if anyone has some. Thanks.

    Please Help me Choose Another Light

    What do you guys think about the G3. I like the size of the G2 over the G3, but I'm thinking that the G3 will be alot brighter. Is it alot brighter? Do any of you guys carry this light? Do you find it to be a little too long? Can I make this a rechargeable light and use lithiums in a pinch...

    Best flashlight for under $20?

    How about a Brinkmann Maxfire LX at Target. This light includes batteries and a sheath. All for $16.99. Also, the Princeton Tec 40 is a nice light for the money. Campmor and Sierra Trading Post has the older models for $10 and change. This light comes with 4AA Duracell batteries (Campmor).

    Best Flashlight For Under $20?

    How about a PT Tec40, I believe it comes with a set of AA batteries. Tell him to throw in a KPR103 or a 3D Mag bulb. I also think he will like the idea of cheap alkalines or running it on rechargeables.

    Small Light Recommendation

    I THINK I might go with the SL Scorpion, TL-2 or TL-3. Where is the best place to get protected lithium-ion batteries and a charger? How many charge cycles should I expect from lithium-ion batteries? Also, what sort of run time should I expect with lithium-ions? Thanks again.

    Small Light Recommendation

    Can any of the lights that I mentioned in my original post use rechargeable batteries? If so, what type of battery and where could I purchase them with a charger? Would I have to modify the light to make it a rechargeable light? If so, how would the change from Lithium CR123's to rechargeables...

    Small Light Recommendation

    Hey guys, I really appreciate all the suggestions. I would like to stay with an incadescent because to me they seem brighter/whiter to me than the LED lights (not crazy about the tints). I can go with lithiums if I need to, I was just curious since alkalines and AA rechargeables seem to be...

    Small Light Recommendation

    I've been looking for a small powerful light (EDC) that I can operate with one hand while using a handgun, carry in my fanny pack or pocket, waterproof would be nice but not a must. I've been thinking about the SL Scorpion, TL-2, TL-3, SF G2, and Brinkmann Maxfire. I'm definitely open to other...

    Light for Car

    I picked up a Tec40 and I would like to leave it in my truck. What's the best way to store the light in my vehicle? In the past, the batteries would leak in my 3D Mags. I live in South Florida, is it the heat that causes this to happen? Does this happen to alkaline batteries only? Thanks.
