3AA maglite mod

Having a quick tidy round today and I stumbled across my old 3AA led maglite. It’s pretty battered but rather than throw it in a drawer, I wondered if there was anything that could be done to it to improve its performance so I would use it again? I’m quite fond of it as many years ago it accompanied me all over Europe whilst working.

Any ideas gratefully received.

Hi Wisemen,

 I bought one to mod a while back, first I did this http://budgetlightforum.com/node/27814#node-27814  Then I did this http://budgetlightforum.com/node/28244#node-28244  The major modifications to the light were based on Match's "15 minute mini mag mod".  If you don't like TIRs and would prefer a reflector then this might help you out http://budgetlightforum.com/node/29240#node-29240.  Coated 22mm lenses can be found at Kaidomain. 

Best,

Brian

Look through old lumens posts for ideas.

Three Tanna leaves to give him life, nine to give him movement. But what if he eats the whole bag?
