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.
