Maglite is one of the most popular brands of flashlights on the market. One of the main reasons is that they are built so well that they can last you a lifetime. The only things you have to mess with are the batteries and bulb. Now wouldn’t it be great if you could improve the life of those last two things? Apparently you can, with one of these LED Upgrade kits from Nite Ize.
The kit is basically a simple LED replacement for the standard bulb in your Mini Maglite (they offer other replacements for your full-size flashlights). What this does is increases your battery life by nearly five times what it was with the original bulb, which means going roughly 25 hours on a single set. The LED itself has a life of several thousand hours, which means it very well may outlast the rest of the flashlight. The kit will only set you back $10, so it will easily pay for itself in battery savings alone.
