Looking forward to seeing that one!
Ah...Maglites! Start using them almost 35 years ago...and start collecting them maybe 20 years ago.I used to be a modder for Minimag, and written a 10k words post on CPF how to do them. That was before the time of multiple stage LED, and you have to mod a flashlight to have a LED inside a flashlight.I really love Maglite, so down right reliable and accessible. And with a giant like Maglite adopting the use of LED, it really usher the flashlight industry into a new era.
Had this guy for 20+ years. Gave him the Nitize LED upgrade a little back.
Holy smurf that is an amazing collection, comis!Thank you for sharing that! I haven't seen a single AA Maglite in YEARS! And you have a rainbow of them....in mint condition. Always a great setup with the nitize!
Awesome collection, comis All those colors are so mesmerizing
I used to have a couple of the old incandescent ones, one of them a double C version. It was practically bomb proof. It fell in a river, got run over by a car, and besides a few scratches on it, it never gave up. I also had a Solitaire on my keychain, but from that one I remember that if I sneezed, the bulb busted. At least they came with a spare bulb in the tail cap. I bought a LED Solitaire a few years ago, an it is still serving me well. Maybe it's time to get me one of those large D cell LED ones. It never hurts to have a flashlight with some weight on it.
This is one of mine , a grey Mini
I used to have several Mini Mags in different colors but I gifted them all away. When I was a cop, and later into my uniformed security gigs, my favorite was a 3 C cell - small enough to carry but bright enough (for those days). Imagine my pleasant surprise to find the updated LED version! 600 lumens! I bought two
Got a Mini Maglite Led, sent by our friend Blackbeard: (Image removed from quote.)(Image removed from quote.)(Image removed from quote.)(Image removed from quote.)It's awlready in my EDC, as a backup for my Nitecore Tube.
Next week I will gather all my MAGs and share some pictures.
