The magnum star bulbs were xenon. The bipins with adapters were Magnum star 2. So the ball I’m talking about is a PR 13.5 base same as the krypton. But quite a bit whiter and brighter. But I have never heard of older lights not accepting the adapter. What is the issue? Is the socket not deep enough or something?I almost exclusively use 90s Maglites which unfortunately don't accept the newer adapter xenon bulb. I have a 3C that I would be willing to mod though.
They can take a bit of force, but they should fit. I have never had one not take it. They were meant for all of their pr based lights. I have a very old 3C. And it accepts the adapter. It is a pre- “c” suffix in the serial numberI think so I can't push it down in far enough to screw the cap on.
Yeah, I am down to my last two. I have at least 15 hours on one of them though and it’s still going strong. Then I will be switching over to a 7212 bulb I got from Tad custom. They fit in the adapter. I much preferred potted bulbs thoughI used to buy those on my first go around on CPF now they are hard to find.
