The TerraLUX MiniStar2 EXTREME (TLE-5EX) upgrades the Mag Instruments® MiniMaglite 2AA flashlight to true tactical flashlight performance by replacing the incandescent bulb with the brightest and most efficient LED available that provides a up to 140 lumens of light.


INTENSE WHITE BRIGHT LIGHT output comes from the ultra efficient 3 Watt LED which is estimated to output around 140 lumens at the emitter. The LED does not fade when it gets hot, so its light output is stable even after extended run times.

Features:
  • FAR Brighter than standard incandescent bulb!
  • 100,000 hour continuous lamp life (10 years)
  • Extends battery life 2 times longer
  • Retains focusing ability of the MiniMag 2AA
  • Tactical flashlight performance at fraction of the cost
  • TerraLUX PowerPush regulator for non-dimming output.
  • Consistant color and brightness, not dependent on battery life
  • Pure white light.


This item replaces and supercedes the TLE-5K2.

Lighting Technology At It's Best!
April 17, 2015
Having served in law enforcement and EMS most of my adult life, I can assure you that adequate lighting in emergencies can be lifesaving. This little giant is more than adequate for that purpose. I only wish that this technology had been available when I was on the job. Anyone that claims that the TerraLUX emits a yellowish beam, should schedule an immediate appointment with their opthamologist.
Pros:
Great light output. Ease of upgrade. Availability.
Cons:
None.

A life-changer for an incandescent 2AA Mini MagLite
March 16, 2015
In a LED world, this is the best way to have an incandescent 2AA Mini MagLite survive and with a great output too.
Pros:
Extremely easy replacement. Very bright. MagLite preserves the focus functions.
Cons:
None. All competitors showed lower lumens value.

Not 140 Lumens
March 14, 2015
I've owned over one-hundred different flashlights and in my opinion, this drop-in is NOT 140 Lumens. Maybe 100 at best. Is it an upgrade from the OEM incan? Definitely. I don't like the fact the drop-in is so long that you can only get less than one turn of the head before it comes off. For a few dollars more, you can get a Maglite LED 2AA that will be much brighter, but if you want to be able to still use an older incan Minimag, then this will work. Just keep in mind its limitations. The tint on mine was very yellow also.

So easy to ressurect an old friend.
February 24, 2015
My Mini Maglite 2AA was collecting dust since the original bulb and a couple of replacements had burned out. I ran across this LED upgrade and figured why not give it a try. I'm glad I did. The flashlight seems much brighter than the original and the bulb change took 5 minutes. It took longer to open the package than to switch out the bulb. I can't say how long this replacement will last, but so far I couldn't be more pleased with the result. Tossed in a couple of Energizer AA Ultimate Lithium batteries, and this flashlight in back in business for the long haul.
Pros:
Very bright. Easy upgrade.
Cons:
None so far.

Little less impressive than expected
February 11, 2015
I was hoping for a much whiter light than I got. It's very blue for my taste (I would say around 6000 K). The amount of light is about what I expected, probably close to the claimed output. The light beam is full of artifacts and rings though so expect that. The focus ability is acceptable, not better or worse than the original optics. On a side note I do like the way it performs in the candle mode. Almost 180 of light. Photo 1 is an unfocused beam shot Photo 2 is focused next to a quark pro warm white on medium brightness Photo 3 is in candle mode
Pros:
Great in candle mode Good runtime Good amount of light
Cons:
Bad color temp Lots of artifacts in beam

Terralux ministar2 tle-5ex
December 20, 2014
These cannot be anywhere near 140 lumens. I think these may be rejects or non conforming LED's. My Ministar2 from 3-4 years ago is brighter. I have a discontinued 80 lumen ITP A3 EOS using 1 AAA battery that is brighter. Also, using Nite Ize 30 lumen that has a better beam and smoother and side by side to my eyes looks brighter Will use them eventually but not an improvement over current led in 2 mini Mags currently in use
Pros:
Price was right.
Cons:
Don't believe they are 140 lumens

Nice Upgrade for the Mini-Maglite
December 19, 2014
Easily installed upgrade for the mini-maglite AA series of flashlights. Noticeable improvement in brightness and beam pattern. Turned a virtually unused flashlight to a nice backup unit.
Pros:
Easy to install. Good price when on sale.
Cons:
None really.

Excellent Upgrade
December 18, 2014
I have not used my Mini-Maglite flashlight for years because the new LED technologies used in today's flashlights make it irrelevant. When I found the TerraLUX MiniStar2 conversion kit on sale at BatteryJunction I couldn't resist. The product was extremely well packaged and the instructions were simple and accurate. Installation took about a minute and the performance is excellent! Brightness is as claimed and the retrofit reflector works very well to create an evenly dispersed beam. At the sale price this product is a great value. It completely transforms the Mini-Maglite to a contemporary tool; mine is back is use after 20 years in the drawer!
Pros:
Good value; excellent performance; easy to install; runs on AA batteries; restores value to previously outdated flashlight.
Cons:
None.

Replacement Lamp
December 14, 2014
I liked this item in the beginning but after about 1 month one lead broke off flush to the LED bottom where it fits into the 2 small holes for the lamp leads. Before it failed it was bright, crisp and a little longer battery life.
Pros:
Easy to install, bright and improves battery life.
Cons:
Fragile, could be brighter.

This is a must have!
December 12, 2014
Shear genius! This little device has resurected my mini-mag from the junk heap. I had almost forgotten about it(10 + years old), but now is back in my pocket! My brother was amazed at the difference it made in his.
Pros:
Simple. Shockingly bright. Doesn't get hot. If you run re-chargeables you can get even more performance out of it. I get 3.5 to 4hrs of usable light. Is as bright as most of the mid-range "tac-lights" that cost a lot more than this device plus the price of a mini-mag.
Cons:
Relearn head adjustment.

Nice upgrade
December 4, 2014
List price is far too much, but I bought one on sale to try it. The upgrade was easily done and it made a big difference in the lights output. I just bought two more. My old MiniMags were put out to pasture before this upgrade, but now they will come back. The LED not only improves the light output and extends battery life, but the electronic regulator lets the flashlight use more of the battery's energy . I actually pulled two virtually dead AA batteries from the recycle bin, and the light output was still brighter than with the original bulb.
Pros:
Simple conversion. New life for an old light. Brighter & longer lasting.
Cons:
A little Pricey; but watch for sales.

A good upgrade
August 19, 2014
Replacing the original bulb in my Mini Maglite got the light out of the drawer and back into service. It's brighter and I expect the batteries to still be good when I need it.
Pros:
Brighter Batteries last much longer.
Cons:
Even at the $17 sale price, seems a little pricey. The upgrade was not trivial for 10 fat fingers.

New life to an old tool
August 18, 2014
I was ready to pitch my 20+ year old Mini Maglites that were always a part of my hunting and fishing gear into the dead gear bag when I discovered the TerraLUX ! These upgrades not only give new life to these old veterans but they turn them into super bright StarWars light sabers... OK not quite that bright but I was certainly surprised and thrilled at the new performance that these have given my Mini Mags.
Pros:
Easy installation, Super bright...
Cons:
Little pricy

nice and bright
October 15, 2013
I purchased 2 of these at the same time. When they arrived one had a real yellow cast to it and the other was bright white. Both were way brighter then the stock bulbs. I had not used them in years because I had purchased a olight t-10 and it was smaller and had 5 light brightness settings. With the led upgrades my mini mags started getting used again. my reason for 3 star rating is because the one being yellow and the bright white one one had the pin break off the back and now it is unusable.

Great upgrade & value
September 25, 2012
I just received these for an old 4-cell I had lying around getting little use. I am extremely pleased with the light output and value. It is brighter than the actual LED version Mag Lites, and I prefer the light color of these over the LED Mag Lite. This is a very crisp white where the Mag Lite has a blueish tint. Also bought the 2/3-cell version and it performs exactly the same.

This is a serious light now!
June 28, 2012
I am very impressed with the light output! Much better than the niteize led upgrade and Far better than the stock incandescent bulb! I like the fact that it is still focusable. For 13.95 at 140 lumens it cant be beat. It does generate a bit of heat but that is to be expected.
