Flashlight badge request
on: August 17, 2022, 07:57:07 AM
I always have a flashlight, knife, and a folded/rolled up shopping bag whenever I leave the house. The AA Mini Maglite and Vic Tourist stay in my backpack while the AAA Mini Maglite and Vic 84 mm Climber (I was carrying a second Tourist until just the other day) stay in a shoulder bag so I can grab either one without having to transfer anything.

I've had the AA Maglite for at least 25 years. It's been up mountains and down into caves.  ::)

They surely have proven to be a reliable design.
Just last year I switched my EDC from AA to Lion powered lights.
Nice pair of Maglite & SAK combos  :2tu:

These lights are so reliable that I'm completely out of the loop on what's currently available and what the quality's like.  :rofl:

Well, if you ever feel bored and want to start modernising your flashlights I would start by choosing the battery type first maybe, and then search the good MTo for further clues  :salute:

If I had the resources to find someone who can do it for me, I’d mod those 2 lights by:

Gutting out the original contents
Upgrading it to LED emitters with new drivers and a new board to take in 14500 and 10440 batteries
Maybe it’s just a matter of lift-and-shift like transplant the guts of an existing light to the Maglite frames….

That’s a big IF I find someone who’s willing to do it for me  :oops:

Just a note on this, you'd probably be dropping from two cells to one if you went to Li-ion cells, otherwise you'd get too high voltage I think.

Otherwise, LED conversion for maglites are really popular and there's a lot of material to do so  :tu:
