Maglites- Don;t waste your money

published

I recently bought two, 2 D cell LED Maglites, both have failed, the entire switch/bulb assembly is held in with a circlip deliberately designed that you cannot remove it to service or repair, one maglite is still on it's first set of batteries and no longer works, they are now throw-away units. Buy something else.

Purchased in May 2019 at eBay for $60.00.


Maglite 3 D-cell LED - a pile of crap (sadly)

published

Tried replacing the bulb, no go. It is recessed beyond the reach of my pliers. No instructions are on their website. Their support documents warn against opening up the stupid thing. I think this company is now run by the same morons who like to lock down computers by soldering in the routine items of upgrade like memory and ssd's. I'll be looking for a different brand from now on.

i have 3 maglights now and yes the first one the batteries did expand because it was summer and I didn't have to use it for eight months so I suggest that if it is not used for a long time simply remove the batteries until needed. love the torches they are number one

Do not purchase this brand. Attempted to open the battery compartment to change out batteries. Would not open. Called MagLite. I was told- they DO NOT stand behind their product. No warranty. I will never purchase another Maglite and neither should you.


Don't waste your $$$$

I have owned Maglites of various sizes for years. Their quality has gone downhill. Their customer service is worse. The batteries will eventually swell and get stuck inside the light, rendering it useless/trash. I've NEVER experienced this with any other flashlight I've owned. I have antique flashlights that do not have this issue. The company will not help. They will only offer to sell you a new flashlight for about the same price you'd pay in the store. There are much better products out there for a lot less money. Search the internet for similar experiences with the Maglite.

Just as good (if not better) than the incandescent version

published

I've always loved Maglites. They have outlived many other torches I've had in the past. The 3D cell is my preferred size/model. The size and weight serves as a defensive weapon, plus the amount and range of light I get out it is just perfect for my needs (at home, camping, etc). I previously had an incandescent bulb version but replaced it with the led version. My main concern, when switching, was: 1) brightness, 2) distance, and 3) beam width. The led version, works just as well (if not better) than the incandescent version.

I bought mine from Master for $40 but see it selling for $30 now.

Update - just serviced my Maglite torches last weekend during SEQ's severe storms. I really understand now what owning a Maglite is all about 'Dependability & Durability'...

Maglite torches are famous for their legendary toughness and reliability. When you pick up a Maglight, you can feel the solid construction, high quality materials and build quality. The LED bulb provides a powerful beam of light and the focus of the beam can be adjusted by rotating the head of the torch. Whether you buy the 2,3 or 4D model, you have the comfort of knowing you are buying a quality torch that is going to provide you with many years of trouble free use.
Solid build quality, Reliable, Tough, Powerful light
More expensive than other torches but it's worth the price

maglite make high quality torches. these are great. they are sturdily made. mine has lasted years with no fear of failure. the beam can be adjusted by twisting the head of the torch. solidly made. quality workmanship. if you want a strong light that can be trusted then this is a great choice
these are serious torches that do the job they are meant to do. they are powerful with a very strong beam. They are quite heavy but they are sturdily made - you can drop a maglite and it will survive
nothing - when it comes to torches these are amongst the best
