turns out Matt from lumencraft sells mag tower spring with low resistance, silver plated beryllium copper, no need to mess with braids and soldering.
Years ago, I put TerraLux NightStar Vs (IIRC) in my two 6D MLs.Good afternoon,
been a while since I've been on here, but yesterday I had a great thrift day, picked up both a 4D Mag-Lite a Dazor desk lamp (gonna post another thread about that one) as well as some unrelated stuff, a couple great books, an Amprobe clamp meter with all probes for $4, etc.
So the question. I already have a very old LED Mag that I bought new back when they first came out. The one I just picked up appears exactly the same except has an incandescent bulb in it instead of the LED module. I'm sure there are better options now than the old Mag LED module, but what should I buy? I'm a sucker for high CRI so if anyone makes something with a Nichia 219 or similar I'd be all over it. I've just been out of the flashlight "scene" for quite a while.
I found a 74 lumen Nite Ize drop in that I assume I have because there was a twofer deal when I bought them for some much older flashlights to turn them into practical emergency lights. It says that it will work in 2 to 6 cell lights and is working but I'm just curious if there is something out there significantly better.
I am running one of those Firefly upgrades in my Mag 4D (with EBL NiMH cells) and am quite happy with it. Low is good for indoors, medium for outdoors, high is there if you need it and it has a very long runtime on low.Or this oneLuminus SST-40 LED Emitter Cool White. Screw the head of the Maglite back on to the body until it is "snug". FIREFLY 800 INSTALLATION.www.ebay.com
