4D maglite led mod sugetions
« on: November 02, 2010, 10:41:10 PM »
high all I'm looking for some led mod suggestions for a 4D maglite, i just burned out the incandescent bulb and threw in the spare, and decided to see if an new Led would be better than buying another incandescent bulb, just so you know I moonlight as a night watchman, so the durability and runtime would be appreciated, just hunting around for suggestions on what mods are better than others, I can get a new maglite 4D led for about 23$ locally so that's my cost limit
Thanks

I don't think you can do much better than the Mag LED insert at that price point.

Has the 4d upgraded to rebel yet? If yes then its about as much as you can get for the money.

I'm looking around online, and there seem to be a lot of different things you can do, just out of curiosity what would you guy consider a good high quality led upgrade/mod and about how much would it cost?

Here's my 4D Maglite next to an Olight M21


This is the LED drop in I used:


This is a TerraLux drop in.  I have an older version (~450 lumens) but the newer version has better output (700 lumens)

It's also a lot more expensive now...

Plus you will need a rechargeable setup for that, alkaine cannot provide that much juice.

wow, that is an impressive light, what's the best you could do with straight alkaline, or D rechargeables, just out of curiosity
