Bulb upgrades for your old Maglite
September 13, 2020
Nothing beats the HEFT of an old 5 cell Maglite, but todays super white beams put the incandescent, weak, yellow light to shame. Finally took my 3 and 5 cell Maglites out of the closet and for under $20.00 refitted them. Took the dog for a walk last night and spotted a herd of deer waaay on the east end of the orange groves. Don't settle for "new" plastic junk. Worth the $$. WRL

I bought this for my 6 d cell Maglite, which ive had for a long time. While reasonably bright, it stayed in a drawer and was not my go to light. With the led bulb, much brighter! Between the cooler color and the lumens it puts out, it is much more useful to me. Given what new Maglites cost, I think this is a worthwhile investment.

When the bulb in my Maglight flashlight burned out, l went looking for a replacement. That's when I came across the MiniStar 5 LED Upgrade. It is nothing short of amazing. To get that much MORE light from the same flashlight is mind-boggling. It's almost like witchcraft. I would HIGHLY recommend this upgrade to anyone looking to replace a bulb. You will not be sorry.

Better than the original bulb, bit on the yellow side but for general security (4c cell)use around the yard its an improvement.

Put this in "Betsy" My 6 cell red Mag-lite. Ive had her for many many years and she just sits in the back of the closet without batteries now that I have all these new fangled LEDs. When I saw this I just jumped to get it for her!! Wow, not really impressed at all!! she may last longer but there isn't enough light to bother. My single cell 18650 $5 mail order lights just blow her away. Back in the closet she went. Perhaps some day there will be a cost effective LED upgrade.
ConsJust ain't got enough cow bell!!

I had a cheaper LED replacement in my 4 cell Maglite that was rated for 70 lumens that worked very well, a nice white light. I saw this TerraLUX rated at 140 and thought that it would be much brighter. While it is much brighter than the stock bulb, it doesn't seem to much brighter than 70 L one and it is very yellow light. All in all, I am not crazy about it but good enough for inside the house where it will be used.
ProsBrighter than stock bulb.
ConsVery yellow light.

Great update for a Maglite
September 11, 2015
Arrived quickly from Battery Junction and was easy to install. Installation was just like replacing the regular bulb. The LED is brighter than the original, and it should make the batteries last longer. This update was for a 4 D Cell Maglite. I'm happy with the update.
ProsEasy Installation; brighter beam; longer lasting batteries; longer lasting LED vs. the original bulb
ConsNone I can think of

I bought this TerraLUX TLE-6EX for my 4 D cell Maglite. Not sure how if this upgrade would work as describe. One word, WOW. Now my Maglite works as it should. I also like that I could still focus the light.

I have a 3 D cell Maglite that was made on March 18, 1991. It has been a great light. Then I saw this upgrade so I bought it. What a difference it made. It is much whiter and brighter. A must have for any old Maglite.

Worth Every Penny!

After debating for a couple weeks if id be wasting my money or not on this bulb I went ahead and ordered it and when I got it and put it in my 6 D cell maglite flashlight turned it on the first words I said were \"this is awesome\" I began shining it around my block and the farest I tried it was 1 city block and it had a solid white bright beam of about 8 ft wide Incandest bulbs might be on there way out with these bulbs on the market.

very much worth the money

Simply put, buy them. Buy them now. Easily 3x as good as a standard incandescent bulb. Not quite as bright on the single LED as the €œdirect from Maglite” LED flashlight but after looking at it I think that is due to the reflector. The Maglite LED reflector is a different color and seems to be of better quality than the regular Maglite reflector The triple led is brighter, way brighter, but I am not sure if it is really worth over double the price of the single LED. Plus, you can’t focus it in any way because in order to put it in the flashlight you have to remove the reflector. Still, it throws off a lot of light. You can see it on the ground in the daytime. One thing to note is that it advertised that these are only for 4-6 cell lights. I put them in my 3 D cell units and they work just fine, exactly the same as in my 4 cell. However, when I tried it in my old (like 14 years old) 2 cell it wouldn’t fit. Different form factor on the bulb. However, on the newer 2 D cell light (like 5 years old) it does fit and works. It is about half a bright on the 2 cell as the 3 or 4 cell lights but it is better than the normal bulb. Not sure if it is worth it though in a 2 cell light. But it is a no brainer in a 3+ cell light
