Black Friday sale started today. 12% this year.
I'm just starin' at the world……from my little private IdahoThat's funny man. From out of nowhere, I was just singing 'Private Idaho' to myself a day or two ago. Hadn't thought about it for a long time. Today your location jumped off the screen at me and I realize you live there!! What's the weather like there? (just in case things get worse here and I have to move!)
They run fine on NiMH's and you can also run them on a single 21700 or 18650 with an adapter. A 5000 mA 21700 has more energy than 3 high capacity NiMH C's, it's alot lighter and you have only one cell to recharge, so that is what I normally use.Yea me too. Anyone knows how they run on NiMH Cs?
That's simply beautiful. Thanx for that good laugh!Being the BF sale is 12% that meant a 3 cell ML50LX could be had for the price of a 2 cell. Same with the ML300LX. I flipped a coin. ML50 was heads, 300 tails. It landed in between the cracks of my sofa cushion in the vertical position. Well that solves that……both.
I wish Mag would stop doing these silent upgrades, and have predictable dates and model numbers for new releases.I had an ML25 package with a sticker saying 192 lumens over the 177 lumens when they upgraded in 2019 and the package rear said 10/15.
Maglite left the big box stores a year or 2 ago. To get the type of margins the bigboxes demand Mag would have to off shore manufacturing. Being made in California/USA seems to be very important to Mr Maglica so I think as long as he is around it will stay that way. They are now only direct to consumer via their website or through Amazon.I was out running errands just now and stopped by one of the local Lowe's and they did not have a SINGLE Maglite on the shelf. There was a guy working in that aisle and he said yep they have priced themselves out of the market. Well I don't know if THAT'S the story or not but evidently people aren't buying them at Lowe's in my area. LuxPro , Craftsman and Coast is pretty much what they're selling.
