I have a handful of Mini-Maglites, and I don't use the lanyard hole in the butt cap on any of them. So I'm wondering if MAGLITE is doing an unnecessary machining operation to make it. I would be just as happy with a regular round butt cap, maybe even more so. That lanyard hole is not needed, in my opinion. What do you think? Do you use it? Would you be fine if the butt cap was plain like on the large Maglites? Maybe make the lanyard hole butt cap an optional purchase, like a glass lens? Let me know what you think.
