I was in another post enquiring about this upgrade and it seems appropriate for me to post here. Cheers.

LED BriCK said:I think you'd have a hard time beating it for about $30, assuming you already have a 3D Mag.
Brighteyez said:Heh, I've got Mags coming out the proverbial Ying-yang
There are some attractive prices out there, but I balked at a $11.43 UPS ground shipping charge for a bulb that weighs less than an ounce.

from TerraLUX". You might email the guy to verify that this is still the case. I believe he is a CPF member.
randyo said:Bright! Impressive throw when focused tight. I like mine. I took it out to the backyard last night to go head-to-head against my Peak CPF Special and both were impressive. The DB-3W naturally has more throw given the tight focus and size of the reflector, but the CPF was no slouch. What it lacked in overall throw it more than made up for in spread and usable light. Apples and oranges.

Woops: Further operation shows a slight flicker when the light is turned on cold, and sometimes it will blink really rapidly once or twice at first. This usually disappears after a few seconds, and subsequent turn ons don't do it. Does it take time to warm the led up? Minor, but bothersome, if you don't know whether it means something ominous. Does anyone know if this is normal for the unit? I have an email to Terralux to see what's what.
I LIKE it!
I just received a nice email from Terralux, saying the flickering/blink thing is the result of "manufacturing problems", and offering to replace my DB3W as soon as they get their new shipment, which should take care of the problem. They are due in about 4 weeks. Thank you, Terralux!
