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.
Here are some of my MAGs and accessories
I've got a maybe a half dozen Mini Maglites converted to LED (most of them are Terralux kits). I think I have maybe 4 3D cell full size Maglites also converted to LED. They may weigh more than some lights, they may not be the brightest, but they are rock solid reliable and that's what matters for around the house or in the car.
I’m missing my mod led mag, the one unique thing I did was changed out the bezel and made it defensive, go back a page and you’ll see what I’m talking about, I’m kinda mad that it doesn’t fit the new leds they put out,JR
Wow! Nice Maglite collections! I have never heard of, or ever seen a single AA Maglite!! What is their history? I am assuming they are no longer made.
