Product Description

Color: Black

From the Manufacturer

Turn it on and see the light with this Mini Maglite. Just twist the flashlight head and you can change the beam from spot to flood, positioning the light exactly where you need it. Anodized inside and out for improved corrosion resistance and durability, this flashlight features a self-cleaning switch that virtually eliminates oxidation. The high grade O-rings at each opening ensure resistance to water and shock while the low resistance circuitry allows a more efficient use of the batteries. This flashlight also includes a candle mode for convenient, hands free light. The diamond-knurled grip helps you hang on to it in tight spots, and the spare lamp in the tail cap may be just what you need to get out a dark situation. Your purchase includes a key ring and two alkaline AA batteries. Manufactured in the United States.

This flashlight is extremely durable and very bright.
Edgar Alan Poe
Ever since Mag Instruments came out with LED versions of the Mini Mag Lite, they've really shine.
Considering the excellent quality of this product does it make sense to buy any other flashlight?

The construction and quality is what you'd expect from a Maglite with a solid and durable aluminum body and rubber gaskets inside to keep out dirt and water. The grip is also nicely textured to keep the flashlight from slipping out of your hand.

Light output is excellent with a bright, white beam and good throw distance. The reflector has been redesigned from the 2AA incandescent model and eliminates the infamous Maglite "hole" (a dark spot in the middle of the beam) when the flashlight is on full flood. Adjusting to spot isn't a dramatic difference, but it definitely puts more light in the center of the beam which can be useful in certain situations.

Batteries last a long, long time, and unlike the older incandescent model, the light output doesn't decrease to unusable levels long before the batteries are dead but rather stays clear and bright until the batteries are exhausted. The LED is also considerably more durable than an incandescent bulb, and my LED Maglite has survived knocks and drops that would have required a bulb replacement in my old incan model. And while the LED version is about an inch longer than the old model, the flashlight is still small and light enough to carry everywhere (I always keep mine on my belt so it's always handy when I need it, which is more often than you'd expect!).

I have only one caveat: the flashlight does not have reverse polarity protection meaning that if you accidentally install the batteries backwards, you'll smoke the LED and you'll have to buy a new flashlight. Just be careful when installing the batteries and you'll be fine.

It might seem a little pricey, but it's worth every penny.


Edit: A year later and this little flashlight is still going strong. It never leaves my side.

All the mag lites share solid aluminum construction and rubber o-ring seals.
What sets the mini mag off from the other mag lites is its size (easy to hold with teeth while working under car, sink, etc) and one little known feature - "candle" mode. You adjust the beam focus by rotating the mini mag's head, but if you continue turning the head pops off; you are left with the handle and the exposed bulb, which is now throwing light in all directions - it is a "candle". Flip the head over, place it on the ground/table - it is now a "candle holder". Stick the candle into the candle holder. Instant candle for camping. (These directions are actually on the mini mag's packaging, but it wasn't until I had bought my third mini mag (one for car, kitchen, daypack) that I noticed. This is actually a great trick to show other mini mag owners... they also threw their packaging away without looking it)
Two mini mags in the candle mode do a good job on a picnic table at night... so get two of them... they're cheap.

While I have run into a flashlight that is slightly more waterproof than this one it is almost three times more expensive. In my humble opinion value is a major component of any design. For this reason, this flashlight rates a 5. Grasp this in your hand and you are immediately struck by its designed in strength and careful manufacturing. The adjustable beam, which spreads or focuses the light expands the usefulness. Narrow for reading a map late at night or wide angle for walking down the lane. A spare bulb (an old concept that seemed to have gotten lost until now) increases the likelihood that you will have light when you want it. Mag took a simple product, added important features and then used quality materials and methods to produce it at a very attractive price.

I've got one of these in my car glove box for emergencies and another in my living room so that I can check the wiring for my stereo, check the fusebox when the power goes out, etc. The Metal Enclosed light is very sturdy. My 5 year old has banged it, dropped it and it still works.

Love Maglite flashlights, only had one minor issue with this one. I don't normally write reviews, but wanted to share this for anyone else who has this problem. The flickering/won't turn on problem very well could be the tailcap assembly (screw off back part). There are 2 metal clips that need to make contact with the barrel. If your AA LED Maglite is not turning on, try bending these 2 clips out and make sure they can make contact with the barrel. Mine had this problem, and once I bent these clips out it has worked just great. I hope this helps someone out there.

All right I'm going to cut to the chase. This light is definitely outdated although Mag has introduced its excellent Minimag LED. Some of the complaints about the reliability of this light are absolutely hilarious. Mag flashlights have been the standard light for maintenence, security,law enforcement, and many other types of personnel and have proven to be a very reliable and durable light. Its an incandescent light, which can fail if dropped just like any other light of its type. P

eople who I consider to experts on the topic of flashlights, who even have websites dedicated specifically to flashlight reviews, also consider this to be a very decent entry level light with high reliability. These experts have recognized the Minimag as being a dependable flashlight not known to have any major design flaws that affect reliability. Sure there are better flashlights out there, they also cost more money.

I consider all the Mag flashlights to be good entry level lights. You aren't getting a Surefire or Streamlight but you will end up with a light that is going to work every time you use it and offer a very long service life. These lights have been torture tested to grave extremes on public forums pertaining to flashlights and their durability will amaze you.

Where it truly does not compare to the Surefire and Streamlight lights is in beam quality. Once you have used a Surefire or Streamlight you might never go back. This little Minimag has a lot going for it though. It is reliable, has fairly good output, and has a decent run time on relatively inexpensive AA batteries. Other lights may be brighter but they are either more expensive initially or more expensive to feed battery wise.
