Thread: What to do with a mag charger?

    Default What to do with a mag charger?

    I have a mag light mag charger. 20 years ago it was the ultimate light for the truck. Several trucks later flashlight technology has advanced beyond the mag charger. Being a pack rat I canít bear to just pitch it. It still works. I now run 18650 Fenix and olight. Way smaller and just as functional.
    So what should I do with the old mag charger? Iím sure it could use a new battery pack but otherwise is good.

    Several years ago I bought a 6V battery pack(actually two batteries) with charger from Battery junction which is intended for Mag Charger.
    I did it because I found that the standard charging system with 16 hours charging time(and no possibility to use another battery during the charging time) was very unpractical. After that I got a Malkoff LED dropin for Mag Charger. While the standard halogen bulb isn't bad at all the LED will give higher output.

    not much you can do, you can buy drop ins, but they will not be much better than your fenix or olight. i would use it someplace else, like a shed, or a basement... with new lights performing better and better, not much point spending money to upgrade MC and still be inferior to modern lights half the size,

    I figured it was kind of a dinosaur. Might eBay it. With the smaller lights performance I always have a streamlight micro in my pocket and have started carrying the olight S2R II in a tale of knives belt sheath. So not much call for the old heavy mag anymore.
    Thanks for the replies.
