Thread: Lets see your Mini Mag mods

  1. #1

    Default Lets see your Mini Mag mods

    so i searched the forums and almost nobody has any threads of all these Mini Mag mods, i know you all got 'em because you love to either brag about them or list them in EDC or something. so lets see em. I'll start with my first completed Mini Mag mod, I'm going to post first what i used and then the completed mod.


    1 Mini Mag body 2xAA, 1 Mini Mag head, 1 Nite Ize 3 LED upgrade, 2 o-rings (1 the size of the head, 1 the size of the tail cap), 1 on/off clicky (i actually got mine from another 2xAA flashlight that just so happened to fit in my Mag). Powered by 2 AA size Lithium batteries


    Completed Mini Mag mod

    That's a nice thread but doesn't have a lot of the more recent mods I've seen (including mine) in it.

    Edit: Here is a link to a mod that I did.. http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/...d.php?t=194179
    I've essentially turned out 3 mods about the same way, with MM+, BB700, GD1000

    I picked it up off of BST a while back. Fivemega made a limited number of them. I tried to get another a while ago, but no luck. It is top heavy, but it throws like no other.

    Here is a combination of parts:

    1xAA cut-down Red MiniMag
    Aurora 20mm Reflector
    Maglite 2D LED
    14500 AW Protected Li-Ion
    Pocket Clip
    Kroll Tailcap
    Forky MiniMag Bezel

    A nice feature of this is the screeching of the circuit when the 4.2v hits instead of 3v.

    How did you get the maglite 2d led to fit. Did it drop in like a sandwich or did you have to mod it?

    A drill bit will be needed to widen the opening in the body, don't ask me which size I didn't do it.
    Also there is a rib on the 2D LED that stops at the body.
    Make it tight and you will get better centering,heat sinking and contact to ground.

    That's a really cool idea to put the 2D bulb in a minimag. It seems like dropping that into a stock head and removing the reflector altogether would make a cool flood light.

    Has anybody made a belt clip for the AA mini mag that would fit between the tail cap and the body so that the tail cap would hold the belt clip down like the "magring" except where that oval loop is it would come down like a belt clip. I want to use this on a cut down one cell mini mag. any ideas or suggestions???

    Well its still LuxIII? (stock) I guess 65~75 lumens
    The best part is the beam out of the Forky Bezel!

    Next time I have a camera set up I'll try to remember to take a pic

    I'm interested to see how you did it when you are able to get pictures up. I've been wanting to do the same thing.
