Camo/Black Triple XP-L Mini Maglite by kyfishguy

Well, after not biting the bullet on a few of the triple mini mags Brian has posted I decided to work with him to create a light that’s exactly what I wanted.

The big thing for me was for the light to have a clicky switch as I really dislike twisty lights and I already had a Rufusbduck custom black micro maglite so wanted to go with a different colour. All the clicky switch conversions are black so to allow me to go with a different colour but still keep it looking right I thought I would go with a two tone scheme of black head, camo tube and black switch, it won’t be for everyone but I love it.

So I decided on XP-L HI 3D emitters, a FET+1 driver with guppydrv ml firmware, carclo 10507 optic and a nite ize clicky switch, along with a triple Noctigon soldered to a copper heatsink. Brian was happy with the options and got to work.

A few weeks later and this arrived…

I was absolutely stoked with the outcome, it is just as I had hoped it would be.

If you are thinking about getting a modded mag I can’t recommend Brian enough. Really easy to deal with, happy to make the light exactly to your specs and very reasonable pricing.

Lastly a couple of beam shots.

That’s a good combo. Looks like a decent thrower with the xplHI s.
How does the mini mag handle the heat on high? Can it be turned on for 2 minutes?
What cells it use?

That’s awesome!! Perfect color combo. I’ve been seeing Brian build these neat lights for a long time and I really want to build my own, but I have no idea on how to make the pill.

You have yourself one sweet little light. To me the style of the Mini Mag is timeless.

Will the Nite Eyz switch handle the current in stock form, or did you need to reinforce it?

It was bypassed, but I don’t think the switch mech itself was touched.

Brian did a thread on it here – http://budgetlightforum.com/node/45056
