    if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

    I have switched all my mags to LED. Been very pleased with them. Much brighter. Not sure if they last longer, but I think they do. Got my stuff from one of the big box home improvement stores.

    I changed to a LED bulb in my five cell Mag Lite. It works well but it does not focus a beam like the old incandescent bulb did.

    IMO they aren't worth upgrading. You can get something brighter, lighter weight, and rechargeable that will blow most any Mag Lite away and it will probably even cost less. Find something with an XML emitter that uses 18650 batteries. It will be a night and day different in size, weight, brightness, and will probably even have better run time.

    I ordered the bulb replacement for 16 bucks
    and then
    ordered this
    Armytek Predator Pro v2.5 XP-G2 (Warm). Black.
    640 Lumen should do just fine.

    While I agree, anyone considering 1865 batteries should research them well, paying attention to the quality of the battery and charger chosen.
