Availability:
The MiniStar5 from TerraLux is the newest and brightest commercially available upgrade for Maglite flashlights using 2-3 C or D cells, outputting up to 140+ lumens at the emitter. With the Maglite's excellent reflector, this upgrade results in an output and throw that exceeds almost any LED flashlight on the market today and is, of course, far brighter and more durable than the bulb it replaces.

Features:
  • INTENSE BRIGHT LIGHT output comes from the ultra efficient 3 Watt LED which is estimated to output 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.
  • FOCUSABILITY. The MiniStar5 preserves one of the most outstanding features of the Mag Instruments™ line of flashlights, the ability to focus. The MaxStar5 produces a focused beam that throws a bright beam a very long distance.
  • LONGER BATTERY LIFE results from the higher efficiency of the LED compared to the standard bulb. This product contain the TerraLUX LED Light Engine, so it maintains a constant light output over the life of the batteries.
  • INDESTRUCTIBLE LED performance and lifetime operation. Unlike incandescent bulbs, LEDs do not just "burn out". This is likely to be the last bulb you will ever need to buy. The rated lifetime is 50,000 hours.
  • EASY TO INSTALL the MiniStar5 just replaces your existing bulbs - no modifications necessary!
  • Model: TLE-6EX EXTREME, TLE-6EXB 6EXB 6EXB 6EX


PLEASE NOTE: New version requires retaining ring from stock bulb. Directions are on package.

More Information:

The TerraLux TLE-6EXB is the most advanced bulb upgrade for 2-3 C or D cell Maglite flashlights. The Maglite conversion bulbs provide a more focused beam for more effective lighting over long distances. The TerraLux TLE-6EXB also provides longer battery life because of the higher efficiency of the LED bulbs, and the Maglite LED upgrade includes the TerraLux LED Light Engine that ensures constant light output over the life of the batteries.

Better than incan, but not great
March 14, 2015
This might be 140 Lumers at best. I was a bit disappointed to find the tint on the yellow side and not cool white. It's a step up from incan and will give much more runtime and no more bulbs to break if the torch gets dropped or bumped against something.

Excellent way to upgrade your Maglite
March 3, 2015
I had a 10 year old 2-C cell Maglite that I had cut down (yes, you read that correctly) to use with an external battery pack for use on my bicycle. I had installed a 6V Xenon bulb in it and it worked well for many years and then the LED revolution took hold so this got put on the shelf. I recently dug it out and saw the deal on the TerraLUX upgrade so I decided to get it. I installed an 18650 into the cut down housing and now have a very compact light that is held on to my bicycle handlebars using a couple of hose clamps. It's rated at 140 lumens, but the "spot" seems to be as bright as a 200 lumen light I have with the additional light given off axis. The color is white and it works well. I've had it running for over 2 hours continuously with no degradation in output (measured with a light meter). I'm very happy with this inexpensive upgrade.

An Excellent Update Choice For Me
January 31, 2015
I was tired of the weak yellowish light from my Maglite and Brinkmann two and three cell flashlights. The new LEDs work well and are much brighter. The Brinkmann had a sleeve over the regular bulb, and removing it allowed the LED to fit in nicely and it works well. I cannot comment on battery life or other possible problems. It is too soon to notice anything of that nature. All I know is that I am very happy with the light output, coverage and color.
Pros:
An easy change-out and reasonably priced.
Cons:
None so far.

Drops in, works well, bright light.
January 13, 2015
This is a great upgrade to the original Maglite bulb. While it may seem silly to put a $17 improvement into a $30 flashlight, it makes the $30 flashlight priceless. Bright, strong light, that make the batteries last longer: what's not to like?

Great upgrade for aging maglite
December 23, 2014
Used in 2 D cell maglite, easy to install, tried with old batteries and found a 100% improvement. Put in new batteries and the difference was fantastic. Haven't had them in long enough to test battery life, but the difference in brightness was well worth the cost.
Pros:
Easy installation, pure bright white light double the old bulb
Cons:
none

Upgrade, but Not Dramatic Improvement
December 19, 2014
Used with the 3 D cell version of the Maglite, the Terra Lux LED falls between the factory LED and the incandescent versions. Brighter than the incandescent bulb, but not dramatically better. Has the yellowish beam of a bulb versus the bright white of an LED.

Great update, bright and focused beam
November 20, 2014
I would rate the output at about 180 lumens. Way better than the incandescent bulb. Perfect simple conversion by replacing the original bulb with this unit.
Pros:
Brighter than incandescent Cheaper than buying a new light focused beam
Cons:
none that I can think of

Bright White Light
November 17, 2014
I installed this in double C Mag-lite with no issues. The light is brighter than a 2 Watt LED replacement I also own. I am happy with this so far. I have not run it through a set of batteries so I can't comment on that. The focus was good with a well centered light.

Decent Upgrade for Outdated Mag
November 13, 2014
This item proved to be a fairly decent upgrade for an outdated Maglite. While I ended up using a different and more expensive custom drop-in for my personal light, this little item found its way into my dads. He is quite happy with the upgrade and I was also impressed at the improved performance for the money. Good gift for those people you know are clinging on to old mags with incandescent bulbs.
Pros:
- easy to install - vast improvement over stock bulb - decent lumens for price
Cons:
- if your looking to make your old mag into something serious this isn't the way to go, but if looking for a simple cheap way to bring it into the 21st century and increase its performance this item is perfect.

Great upgrade for a tired MAG light!
October 28, 2014
This is simply a drop-in replacement that works great! My old light was always dim, so when I put the new TerraLUX LED replacement in, I did not replace the batteries just to see what the difference would be on the same old batteries. It was amazing! I still have not replaced the batteries that I thought were almost dead!
Pros:
Easy to install, bright light

TerraLux MiniStar5 LED Upgrade for 2-3 C/D cell Maglites
October 2, 2014
I have two old and one new 3-cell MagLite flashlights. Thus, I purchased three kits.
Pros:
The kit is perfect for 3-cell old MagLite. The old incandlescent bulbs with metal base.
Cons:
The kit is not right for a new 3-cell MagLite The retaining cap is too small for an incandlescent blub with plastic base. Thus, the replacement kit fails.

TerraLUX TLE-6EXB review
December 12, 2012
I RECENTLY BOUGHT 2 PCS OF TerraLUX TLE-6EXB LED UPGRADE FOR MY 2D & 3D CELL MAGLITES BOUGHT IN THE LATE 1990\'S. THE LIGHT OUTPUT OF THE UPGRADES ARE NOT BRILLIANT WHITE LIGHT AS ADVERTISED. BUT INSTEAD, THE LIGHT OUTPUT OF TERRALUX UPGRADE IS A COOL WHITE SHADE. FROM OBSERVATION, THE LED UPGRADE IS A GOOD INVESTMENT IN THE SENSE THAT THE BATTERY LIFE IS NOW MUCH LONGER PLUS THE LIGHT OUTPUT (ALTHOUGH NOT EXACTLY BRILLIANT WHITE) IS DEFINITELY BETTER THAN THE ORIGINAL INCANDESCENT BULB LIGHT OUTPUT. COOL WHITE IS A SHADE OF LIGHT THAT IS SOMEWHAT LIGHT YELLOWISH IN COLOR. INCANDESCENT BULB PRODUCES A WARM WHITE LIGHT WHICH IS SOMEWHAT ORANGE IN COLOR. A ORIGINAL LED MAGLITE (3D CELL I BOUGHT FOR COMPARISON) PRODUCES A BETTER LIGHT OUTPUT WHICH IS AN INTENSE BRIGHT WHITE LIGHT. DEFINITELY BETTER LIGHT OUTPUT THAN THE UPGRADE.

Great upgrade & value
September 25, 2012
I just received these for an old 2-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.

February 25, 2012
Just got one of these! I can\'t speak to the battery life but the light output it 3-4 times what the orig. mag lite bulb was. It\'s a great way to bring those older flashlights into the 21st century. I am ordering two more now.

Well Worth The Money
December 30, 2011
Like a lot of people, I owned/carried Maglites for years until the new high output LED flashlights started becoming available, like the high tech Fenix and JetBeam lights. Still owned several Maglites though and wanted to upgrade them as much as possible. These TerrLUX LED upgrades are the way to go! Inexpensive, with a much higher output than the original Maglite incandescent bulbs. I have upgraded a 3D Maglite that I keep bedside and a 2D we keep as an emergency kitchen light. Don\'t compare these to the new, small, high tech LED lights you may now own, as they will not match them in output. Compare these to the previous output of your Maglite and you will be very pleased. These LED upgrades give another lease on life for your older Maglite flashlights that are still solid platforms, just lacking in light output. I have another 4D Maglite that I carry in my vehicle which is going to get a similar upgrade soon. A large platform light can always be used defensively if you are ever stranded somewhere - which is another reason to keep and upgrade those older Maglites! BatteryJunction.com are great people to deal with.

U MUST GET HIS UPGRADE
December 2, 2011
I am a cop on patrol & we are pretty much mandated to carry these giant heavy C or D cell mags with us. This upgrade makes me actually use my mag on car stops again. Excellent bright white light & still retains the Mag focus when needed. and the beam has nice distance to it as well. Great price too.. especially if you misplace it in your RMP or loose it in an 85 ..you can still afford to do another upgrade. I also upgraded my mags I keep at home as well. It is a smart investment.

August 16, 2011
Bought this upgrade for my dad\'s maglite. Its ok. The light still has a bad beam pattern, but now its brighter.For the cost of a POS maglite and this upgrade you might as well just get a 210 lumen 2 C-cell Life Gear flashlight.

TerraLux LED
July 11, 2010
This is great and worth its money, while it\'s focused it has a throwing distance of over 500 feet, works very well, it emits white light vs. the stock incandescents yellow light. long battery life, it\'s very easy to swap w/the old bulb, then the old bulb can be stored in the tailcap as a spare The only con is that the LED gets very warm (but not hot) after being on for more than 10 minutes. but no major issues. Overall it is a great light upgrade and worth the money because it\'s makes your Maglite the beast it should be again. :D

Good, but not great
May 5, 2010
Purchased the TLE-6EXB for my 3D cell maglite. It definitely puts out a brighter and whiter light than before. I have an appr. 80 Lumen flashlight I compared to and this upgrade is brighter and whiter, but IMO not 40% brighter, so the 140 lumen spec might be optimistic. Overall I was mildly impressed, but its still a decent deal if the batteries last longer than before.

December 9, 2009
I was a little hesitant but I picked up this LED upgrade anyway for my old and forgotten Maglite 2C cell flashlight, inserted it and wow! The new light intensity from the same power is truly surprising! For the cost, this is an excellent upgrade for the already solid Maglite flashlight you already own. Worth every penny in my opinion.

Bill

great upgrade
December 1, 2009
Bought mine about a year ago from here. We use it in a 3D Maglite that lives under our sink, so it gets a lot of brief use. It puts out great light, in a dark room it is comparable to my Olight T10, so about 180 lumens. When it is on more than 2-3 minutes it does put out a pulse of light every 30-60 seconds which can be annoying.
