    Maglite 3d cell light upgrade

    They are huge I know but I keep one beside our bed. Has anyone done an upgrade on one to led and what are the options? Easy is better but if I need to do some soldering that won't be a problem.

    Thanks in advance.

    I got a 4 cell (D) & it's brighter by a long shot & last 2-3 times longer on
    batteries, as far as the (3) cell should be close ; ) Cost of LED Bulb $18-$19

    I bought an LED conversion for one of my 3 Maglites last year from Wal Mart. Yep.....about $19 but well worth it. Of course I have a couple of little tiny flashlights take the CR123 batteries with the C4 chips and they are still twice as bright as the LED.

    Yeah I put the LED upgrades in two of mine, well worth the cost.

    The bulb cost seems to be offset by the longer battery life. Also the LED seems brighter. I have the 4D.
