All lights feature a lifetime limited manufacturer's warranty. Batteries included. Made in USA.

Here's a nice little light in a tough little package. It's perfect for quick, occasional use, say, to shed some light on a dark keyhole. The built-in key lanyard is long enough to let you use your key and the beam at the same time, and the beam width adjust with an easy turn from spotlight to flood. It's compact enough for a pocket and tough enough to tumble around in a briefcase, backpack or handbag—-it's corrosion-resistant, too. We especially like the extra bulb packed right in the end compartment, so you won't get caught without a light. Granted, the beam could be beefier, but for its purpose, it's a great little flashlight.--Kris Jensen-Van Heste

Customer Reviews

It's small and is light wait an fits on key ring.

As is the case with any Mag flashlight, the construction is very solid...you can feel the quality.

Some of the newer LED flashlights are of a similar size but much brighter.

The Solitaire is relatively well built, but the poor beam makes it useless. Its not bright even with fresh batteries, and it QUICKLY dims. There is almost no sidespill, even when adjusted to wide beam. It eats up batteries, and has very poor beam quality.
This is the only Maglite model that I rate as below satisfactory. It flat out fails.
There are better options out there. Arc flashlights are very bright for their size, reliable, and have a good beam. They use LED bulbs that never burn out. Plus, they are semi-regulated so that they maintain their brightness for longer periods than the Solitaire. Other pocket lights worth looking at are Photon Microlights and the CMG Sonic (both use LED bulbs). Shop around, decide what works best for you and is in your price range.
That said, I cannot recommend the Mag Solitaire regardless of price. Its poor beam and dim output make it all but useless.

Color Name: Black
The construction of this Mag-Lite Solitaire is really quite good. It's very sturdy and I've had one run over by my truck and had a 150 pound (68kg) Television drop on another without much visible damage (scratches).

I have received this as a gift and as a corporate tchotchke as well as having bought one and they do come in handy. The problem is that it runs through batteries pretty quickly if you use this for anything more than looking for your keys on the ground or the deadbolt on your door when you forgot to leave on the porch light. The lens cap tends to turn itself on in your pocket or bag... draining away the power. I haven't ever used it as a keychain device as I don't like a lot of bulk.

I haven't ever experienced the reported problem with the end cap loosening. The best task I've found for this light is to hang it on the keyring holder in my laptop bag. It's simply not well suited to a pocket or to a keychain, and I believe that was its intended purpose.

I found the light, itself, to be fairly bright at full power, but with a more robust LED, it would probably be a better unit. It does have a better light distance than an LED would produce, though. All-in-all, a bit of a miss, but I'm a flashlight hound, so I still like it. If you are looking for a good keyring light, get a smaller LED with an on/off switch. This would probably make a good light for a purse or in a glove compartment. I would recommend pairing it with a Lithium Battery (Technuity L92BP4 Battery, Lithium Aaa Photo Battery for example) - especially if storing in car or bag for long periods. Make sure you tighten the lenscap well so it doesn't accidentally turn on.

Color Name: Silver Verified Purchase
I just bought a silver one of these maglite solitaires. The flashlight is incredibly small and lightweight. At first I thought it might be lighter than the key I attached it to! and, While on closer observation I was wrong, I think you'll find that you won't notice this flashlight on your keyring. For its size the light is pretty bright. Most keyring flashlights end up being only good for looking like a flashlight and not actually being one. This one is actually very handy. Its best feature is the candel feature (where you can unscrew the head of the flashlight and the bulb asks like the light of a candle). I definitely suggest you buy this product. I plan on purchasing more of these myself.

I have purchased THREE of these. Each one eventually, somehow, unscrewed in my pocket or purse and all I had left was the cap attached to my keys.

The larger one I've had in my car for FIVE YEARS. It's excellent and I only changed the batteries ONCE and that was because I thought of it (but it was still bright).

Do yourself a favor; buy the larger one instead of multiple tiny ones. Maglite is a great product, but they slipped with this one. YOU MAY REALLY NEED IT SOME DAY!

Color Name: Black
I've had one of these lying around in my pocket or behind my ear for close to eight months. It's just the perfect little light for looking in small places, without blinding some one with the LED Mini Mag I also carry. That's right, I actually like that it's not LED, it's nice to have both kinds of lights for different situations. In the eight months of casual to daily use I've put it through, I've had to change the battery three times, but the bulb is still like new. This is very unusual, considering how Mag bulbs usually last a couple months at most.

But I have to agree with the other reviewers, if you do keep it on a keychain or the larnyard it comes with, keep an eye on the battery cover. I personally passed over the keychain and just carry and use it without my mess of keys jingling and pulling the thing apart entirely. This is a decent keychain light, but it won't fall apart on you if just carry it in the change pocket of your jeans, a shirt pocket, without the keychain this light is small enough to fit in a larger wallet if it had to.

And one little not to Mag, they should start advertising the 'candle mode' on this thing as well as their other lights. When you keep twisting the head after turning it on anf focusing, the cap comes off and leaves the small, candle-like but exposed in a miniature lantern effect. Just set the flat end down on a table, rock, floor, any little situation where you need a small area light, and don't lose the cap. And if you really want to use the larnyard, I've also had this thing hang from zippers in tents and from bathroom mirrors in a power outage.

I would have written this sooner, after a few months of using this thing, but yesterday I went out and bought about ten of these in assorted colors.
