And it's available in black, forest green or gray hardcoat with grenade grip.The 3D ML300 does run a lot longer on high at 746 lumens (32 hours) with 403m beam distance. That is pretty impressive to me.
Little by little I have acquired several Maglites through their website over the last 2 years or so post WalMart availability. Mostly the kind where a portion goes to charities. So they send me e-coupons at times.You what? I'm surprised they didn't send you a 'get well' card!!
I guess there is no 30% site wide code this year?The 3D ML300 is amazing but if one wants heft of the 4D Maglite the long run ML300 is a good one no doubt.
Double x I get texts from Maglite at times with special deals for "loyal customers" (in other words I haven't bought anything from them this month lol). The other day the code was for the XL50, today it's for the 4D and assorted bundles like a "complete home bundle kit", and "aviation kit", "home protection bundle", "ML300 road tool bundle", "prepper bundle" and "national security bundle"
The black friday/cyber monday was 25% site-wide this year iirc. The 25% for the 25 days of Christmas has been specfic items each day. Day x was camping, day y gifts for him etc. Like KG said there was a brief one post BF/CM.I guess there is no 30% site wide code this year?
I just got the ML25LT. Does this have the parasitic drain you refer to above.?Only qualm I have with the ML series is you must remember to slightly loosen the tailcap or the electronic switch will drain the battery past the point it will take a charge. Fine if you keep it the charger or top up once a month or so.
Pretty sure they work a bit like a large Mini Mag and the head breaks the connection.
The ML25 is great for power outages. We used a couple during the last power outage when a tree fell taking out the power line during a storm. The ML25's worked real well for assessing the damage caused by the fallen tree and after that we used them set up as lanterns.Got a couple m25lt I've been using during power outages. No parasitic drain left loaded. And No leaking issues with Rayovac C (blue/silver wrapper) High Energy cells. I do unscrew the tailcap, a turn or so, just in case of leakage it will make it easier cleaning out batts..
Gotta say with low candle mode, this overgrown Mini is the most used around my house. Even my neighbor has a loaner. I told him to hang on to it for next outage. The guy returned a brand new one the other day. Good neighbor, we watch out for each others property
Here is a link to a review of the 3D model:The 3D ML300 does run a lot longer on high at 746 lumens (32 hours) with 403m beam distance. That is pretty impressive to me.
That's only because alkalines suck and fall out of regulation fairly quickly. If you use NiMH's or Li-ions it will level off at around 70%, though total run time will be shorter.It includes a time output graph.
It shows that the output on high drops to 40% at 4 hours, and 25% at 8 hours.
Still, at almost 200 lumens, with a focused beam, that is still useable light.
Mag would have sold untold millions of the incan ML25's if they came out 25-30 years earlier. The LED ML25 must still be one of Mag's best sellers, bridging the gap between the Mini Mag and the big C/D cell Mags.The maxi-minimag is great when it's dark out, like no light pollution but for shadow busting in the light polluted places it runs out of steam quickly. Even my 850 lumen ML150 seems paultry in those scenarios.
In a different time it may have been Maglites best seller.
