MagLite LED bulb conversion

I replaced the light bulb in my 10 year old MagLite 4D cell flashlight a few months ago. The light output seems to be about the same. Color of the new LED bulb is somewhat purple. The flashlight retains its adjustable focus, since the only thing that changes is the bulb itself. With the new LED bulb, the batteries should last a long, long time.

If you have a MagLite flashlight, I recommend this upgrade. There are LEDs for various sizes and voltages. MagLite has caught on to the LED market, and they now ship LED lights from the factory. The battery cost alone will be paid off if you use the new bulb; especially with a MagLite that lasts forever.
