This is a basic LED conversion module for C or D flashlights that take a flanged bulb. There is also a version available for flashlights which use screw in bulbs. Use is not restricted to Maglite flashlights so the product description needs to be corrected. The Terralux web site indicates the general flashlight suitability of this LED bulb.

In the two flashlights I installed it in, a 2D cell stainless steel Garrity and a 3D cell Kel-Lite it outputs more light than the Krypton bulbs that it replaced. Results will depend on the flashlight the module is installed in as the 2D Garrity flashlight is brighter than the 3D flashlight. I suspect a combination of reflector design, switch resistance and possibly other factors are involved.

I swapped LED modules between the flashlights and tried brand new batteries in the 3D light with the same results so this result is not related to battery condition or variations in LED bulb output.

The resultant beam in both lights has a center area that is much more even in light output than with a incandescent bulb. The light is yellower than from a Maglite 3W LED conversion module and not as bright but the Maglite one will not fit either light converted due to the larger base diameter and no notch cutout in the flange of the Maglite LED bulb as required by many flange bulb flashlights.

Overall a worthwhile conversion but not comparable in output to many of the high intensity LED lights on the market. Not tested yet but it should provide much increased battery life compared to standard flashlight bulbs and not fail if the light is knocked over or dropped as incandescent bulbs do. Not tested in more than a 3 cell flashlight though it claims to work in any 2 to 6 cell light.

I wanted to replace the standard bulbs in my standard military issue angle-head flashlights. I bought one of these and a Dorcy 41-1643. I put each bulb in a new flashlight with a brand new set of Rayovac alkaline batteries in each, including one with the standard filament bulb to use as a baseline.

The results:

Standard bulb: 47 hours 20 minutes
TerraLUX TLE-1F: 94 hours
Dorcy 41-1643: 233 hours

The batteries for the Dorcy 41-1643 lasted an amazing amount of time, but was a little less bright than the TerraLUX TLE-1F. Both of the batteries for the LED bulbs not only outlasted the filament bulb, but also had a significantly brighter and whiter light.

If brightness is the most important thing to you buy the TerraLUX TLE-1F, it has a slightly brighter light than the Dorcy 41-1643 and a much brighter and whiter light that the standard bulb. The betteries used with the TerraLUX TLE-1F also lasted about twice as long as the standard bulb.

If energy efficiency is your primary concern the Dorcy 41-1643 is far superior at a whopping 233 hours of good light on one set of batteries, I was stunned at its longevity. The Dorcy also costs much less.

Both LED bulbs also would light to nearly full power after they had gone out and the batteries were given a chance to rest, this amount of good light would last from 5 to 25 minutes.

UPDATE: I have had these bulds for almost 3 years now and they have been flawless.

Yes, this is a powerful upgrade to that crappy, old incandescent flashlight rattling around in a drawer, car, toolbox, or what have you that uses 2 up to 6 batteries. .
No, I do not really recommend it because, for the price, you can buy a spiffy new dedicated LED flashlight.

Yes, it is identical to a standard bulb and will work in any regular flashlight (except for lanterns: for some odd reason, the direction of the batteries is different, so this thing probably will not work in them: check; the bottom of the LED bulb has to touch the button top of the batteries, not the flat bottom).
No, it is still expensive.

If it is a standard 2 battery flashlight, this thing will give you more light. If you have a flashlight that uses more batteries (3 or more), this replacement will probably be less bright.

PRO
**filament will not blow if you drop it onto concrete or asphalt
**gives longer battery life
**is somewhat brighter if you stick it into a 2 battery flashlight

CON
**expensive: just buy a shiny, new, dedicated LED flashlight

FINAL WORD
If you have an old fashioned flashlight that you really like or is of great sentimental value or is very useful and utilitarian, then buy this thing. If you just want a better flashlight and otherwise do not really care, fuggedaboutit and explore the wide, wonderful world of LED flashlights.

I purchased the TerraLUX TLE-1F MiniStar1 1-Watt Flange Base LED (Amazon ASIN: B000B868MA) specifically to use as a replacement for the Krypton bulb which comes with the Rayovac 301K Lantern (Amazon ASIN: B000UEAQO6).

For me, the TLE-1F would _not_ light in the Rayovac 301K -- even when I reversed the polarity of the lantern handle.

> > > UPDATE: I have now gotten this LED to work with the Rayovac 301K. Don't know what I did wrong earlier but it works now!

The TLE-1F _did_ work in an old (discontinued) Rayovac vertical lantern which uses a spring-terminal, square, 6-volt lantern battery and has a semi-Fresnel lens. The light it thrown by the TLE-1F through the semi-Fresnel lens is, IMHO, too much for safe use indoors but is probably the best one could have for changing a flat tire in the dark -- it illuminates an entire wheel well with a brilliant, white light.

The TLE-1F also worked as a replacement bulb an older 6-D cell MagLite but was not nearly as bright as a new, original equipment, MagLite 3-D cell LED flashlight (which has a 3-Watt LED).

But the TLE-1F did _not_ light in an older, GE 4-D cell lantern.
