After the modernization of its flashlight MAG-LITE Mini Maglite, as can be read below, there is a very great interest in LED flashlights. The main conditions for them were mandatory power from AA batteries or accumulators, and of course cheapness. As a result, the Inova Bolt 3.8 W White LED flashlight was selected, powered by two AA batteries.

lanyard. Now you need to constantly hold the flashlight in your hand. Inova Bolt is stronger than the MAG-LITE Mini Maglite in lighting. The degree of illumination by a lantern is lower by 10, 20 and 40 meters, respectively.
Inova Bolt is one and a half centimeters shorter than the MAG-LITE Mini Maglite. The thickness is almost the same. During operation, I liked the functionality of the back button. It is recessed, the lamp will not turn on when accidentally pressed, and it can be put on the table like a candle. I also liked the rubber-plastic on the handle, it does not slip even in wet hands.
Replacing the lamp of the flashlight MAG-LITE Mini Maglite with an LED module.
I have been using the MAG-LITE Mini Maglite flashlight for two AA batteries with an ordinary light bulb for about 10 years already. At one time it was very popular and sophisticated flashlights, but time goes on … The power, duration of work and the level of lighting of Mini Maglite have ceased to suit me, but I really didn’t want to buy a new flashlight for a certain amount of bucks.
The way out was found. A small alteration worth 70 hryvnia. And the Mini Maglite got a new life. Instead of a standard incandescent lamp, a module for three diodes was installed. And instead of the standard plug at the end, the button for turning on the flashlight is from the same kit. Lighting characteristics increased by 3 times, power consumption decreased by 5 times. In addition, the flashlight received a convenient button to turn it on at the end with a bonus. It’s much more convenient than turning the front part as before.
