Description
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. This upgrade is manufactured and distributed by Lightstar Corporation.
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.

Works, but improvements are possible
July 19, 2016
It is certainly bright! The plastic disk could have been manufactured thinner, which would allow for a deeper parabolic mirror, with better focusing. The beam focus is not as good as it should be. But, this is a minor criticism. All-in-all, this is a great product.

Nice Upgrage
July 15, 2016
This is a very nice upgrade to the Mini-Mag flashlight. Much brighter and still able to focus the light. I think anyone who upgrades from light bulbs to LED using this conversion will be glad they did.
Pros:
Much brighter, easy conversion
Cons:
None

Fantastic Upgrade
February 27, 2016
Much stronger (140 lumens) and whiter light output than the original incandescent bulb (14 lumens). Breathes new life into an older flashlight that I had abandoned for newer, brighter flashlights. Very easy to install. My only issue is it costs almost as much as the original flashlight. I have 2 Mini Maglites. The photos I've attached are of the 2 lights side by side. One light is upgraded and the other is not. In one photo I turned the head from off and stopped as soon as the light turned on for a wide light spread. The other was to get the light to its sharpest focus. In the first case, the LED is much more uniform while the incandescent bulb has obvious light and dark bands. The light spread diameter is about the same but the LED is much whiter and brighter. In the second case, the incandescent bulb and reflector were much more focused with very little light outside the central "hotspot". The LED was again much brighter when focused but there was much more light around the central "hotspot". All-in-all, this is a very good upgrade. Eventually I will upgrade the other light. Just going to wait until I see it on sale again.
Pros:
Easy to install, Much Brighter,
Cons:
Cost

Old mini-mags can now soldier on
December 21, 2015
I had two mini mag lights that I used as car glove box lights, and one I aim at our outdoor thermometer on winter mornings. This upgrade goosed their output and made them more useful much more useful. I would have hated replacing them.

awesome value
November 28, 2015
Bought these to replace old 3-led nite-ize upgrades that disabled the focus function. They work well and focus to quite a tight beam that is much brighter than the leds they replaced. Installation was easy.
Pros:
Beam can be focused wide to tight. Easy installation.
Cons:
None.

A good upgrade for my mini maglight.
November 27, 2015
Much better light output versus the original bulb. I would have preferred a tighter focus beam at the narrow end of its range, but it is still a big improvement. Would recommend.

A great upgrade
November 16, 2015
I am a casual user of flashlights and have been happy with the original Maglite. I have another flashlight with an LED bulb that made the Maglite look weak. So, I bought the LED bulb as an upgrade. It is fantastic. Well worth the money to have the updated flashlight. I hope the claim for longer battery life proves true over time.

Works as advertised
September 27, 2015
Installed easily in a Maglite (about 10 years old). 140 lumen rating seems about right based on comparison to an Olight S15 (70 Lumen (med), 280 Lumen (high)). The only possible downside I've noticed is that as you rotate the head to adjust the beam, the location of a focused (spot) beam is only about a 1/2 turn away from where the head becomes completely unscrewed. Not a major issue, but could be improved. Also, when the beam is widened, there's still the dark spot in the middle just like a normal Maglite with a standard bulb.
Pros:
--Easy install --Much brighter than original bulb
Cons:
Minor issues - see review

What a difference.
September 12, 2015
I used to be a great fan of maglites, then LED came about. I gave my big maglites away, and tossed the minis in a drawer. When conversion kits came along, I thought it would be fun to hotrod one of my minis. The TerraLUX MiniStar2 TLE-5EX MiniStar2 EXTREME LED for Mini Maglite 2AA Flashlights came on sale at Battery Junction, and I grabbed one. Hey! This is great! Now I have a mini Maglite that casts a bright, white light to the far side of my yard. I have too many flashlights as it is, and now I have a mini mag that's worth taking the garbage out at night. I hate kicking skunks in the dark.

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
