How could I do flashlight reviews without talking about the original tactical flashlight? The Mini Maglite AA, now comes in a super bright LED version. Maglite’s have proven themselves for their durability and reliability. The other thing that makes them great is they take super cheap AA batteries.
With a twist of the head it has 4 Selectable Modes:
- High Power
- Low Power (25%)
- Blink Mode – Blinks approx. once a sec.
It can also be used in a candle mode, when the head is removed and placed at the tail cap.
Length: 6.607″ (167.8 mm)
Barrel Diameter: .709″ (18 mm)
Head Diameter: 1″ (25.4 mm)
Weight with batteries: 4.15 oz. (117.75 g)
Brightness: 77 lumens w/ 10h 45min run time
If you want to go the less expensive route you can get the standard bulb Mini Maglite for around $12.00 and buy the Nite Ize upgrade kit and it cost around $10.00
Much can be said about the Mini Maglite. Accessories and batteries are cheap for the Maglite. Cody Lundin uses one. And even though I own Surefires and plenty of other tactical flashlights I always have a Mini Maglite.
