ok so i just got a 4W LED AAA powered unit for a present. its made by rayovac. this thing is most impressive. apparently just came to the market. not even on their website yet.
Exactly! I refuse to buy flashlights that use those expensive, not-available-everywhere batteries.For me, its been far more valuable than the expensive, ultra bright one that collects dust at home. Just my .02 LR
Dumb thing is that the LED bulb to convert your Maglight costs darn near as much as a 3 cell complete flashlight with the LED bulb already in it (IIRC, I paid $25 for my LED 3 cell at CT on sale a couple of years ago, the LED bulb itself at Home Depot was around $18). I imagine that the prices have changed now, but they do sell the single 3 watt LED bulbs for them and they are worth having IMO. I find that the beam is much clearer and far brighter. LRI thought they have been out for a while. I think they are $30 at Cdn Tire. And you can buy conversion bulbs for older lights.
