LudoPam Maglite LED Bulb CREE XP-G3 Upgrade Conversion Kit 2 Cell D or C Torch Flashlight

LudoPam Maglite LED Bulb CREE XP-G3 Upgrade Conversion 2 Kit Cell D or C Torch Flashlight

by LudoPam

Easy to Install: Replace the bulb by unscrewing the flashlight head from the body, removing the retaining collar and old bulb, inserting the new LED bulb, and reassembling

The LudoPam Maglite LED bulb is the brightest flashlight bulb we tested, and it's easy to install. The bulb fits into a standard Maglite flashlight, and it's designed so it doesn't cause any damage to the flashlight. The bulb has 280 lumens of brightness, which is 40 percent brighter than the Maglite bulb we tested. The bulb has a T6 end, so you can also use it as an emergency light. The bulb is bright, and thecree xp-g3 led bulbs lasts a long time, so you won't have to replace it as often. The bulb has a 50,000-hour lifespan, so it's probably more reliable than an incandescent bulb. The bulb's temperature doesn't increase as much as the Maglite bulb we tested, so it's much less hot.

The MagLite LED upgrade bulbs are easy to install. Simply screw in your existing halogen bulb, turn on the flashlight, and the bulbs will illuminate. They'll also work in most Maglite flashlights that accept a halogen bulb, including the older 3- and 4-watt models. The bulbs are bright, with 302 lumens of brightness, and they have a 3-year warranty. The brightness is also adjustable, so you can increase or decrease the brightness. The bulbs are dimmable, too, so you can use them outdoors at night without blinding people. They also put out very little heat, so they don't melt the casing or affect the performance of the flashlight. The bulbs come with a 9-volt battery, so you'll just need to replace the bulb, and you don't need any special tools for installation (although a screwdriver will help). The only downside to these bulbs is that they don't last very long. The bulbs burn for about 1,500 hours, which is similar to the MagLite LED upgrade bulbs we tested before, but it's less than the 2,000 hours that the previous bulbs got.

Maglite Heavy-Duty Incandescent 2-Cell D Flashlight, Black

Maglite Heavy-Duty Incandescent D 2-Cell Flashlight

by MAGLITE

Powerful, projecting beam focuses simply by rotating the head

The Maglite Heavy-Duty Incandescent 2-Cell D Flashlight is a sturdy, reliable flashlight that shines brightly and lasts a long time. We liked that it was bright enough to illuminate an entire room, and we liked that it had a heavy-duty case of chromed aluminum alloy, which feels sturdier and heavier than a plastic flashlight. We also liked that the Maglite is solidly built, with a sturdy switch that's easy to press even in the dark. The Maglite's drawback is its dim output, which doesn't match that of its higher-priced rivals. We also didn't like that it's somewhat too long to be practical, and we liked that the flashlight head is oriented in a somewhat awkward way, so you have to twist it slightly to aim it. Still, if you're looking for a reliable flashlight that won't let you down, the Maglite Heavy-Duty Incandescent 2-Cell D Flashlight is a reliable choice.

This Maglite ML125 LED Rechargeable Flashlight System is a great choice for anyone looking for a flashlight that is slightly more powerful than their standard AAA or AA flashlight, but doesn't have quite as much power as some of our other top picks. The ML125 packs 197 lumens of brightness out of its LED bulb, which is more than some flashlights in our roundup, but less than some of the more powerful models we tested. The ML125 is also much slimmer and lighter than our top pick, the Surefire G2X. The ML125's switch feels slightly cheap and sluggish, but it's fairly firm and won't accidentally turn on in your pocket. The flashlight's lithium ion rechargeable battery pack charges in about 4 hours, and after about an hour of charging, the ML125's battery has a 2.5 hour run time. The ML125's zoomable spotlight has a wide beam that offers decent illumination for distance, but isn't very powerful. The ML125 also has a 120V AC converter that plugs into an outlet, so you can use the flashlight anywhere in the world. The ML125's rechargeable flashlight system comes with a cord that terminates in a USB plug, allowing you to recharge the flashlight from your laptop, car, or wall outlet.

The P13.5S LED Upgrade LED Flashlight Bulb is bright, it's more efficient than a halogen bulb, and it lasted more than twice as long on our test flashlight. And it's much longer lasting than a 3-watt incandescent bulb, so it will last a lot longer than your old bulb, too. It's compatible with standard D and C 3-16-cells, so it's great for Maglite flashlights, but it's also compatible with most other brands. The P13.5S LED Upgrade LED Flashlight Bulb is also much brighter than the LED bulbs we used in our former top pick, the Maglite D40 LED. That bulb was bright enough for most tasks, but The P13.5S LED Upgrade LED Flashlight Bulb is brighter, and it's more efficient, so you'll save more electricity in the long run.
