TerraLUX MiniStar5 (TLE-6EXB)

Powerful LED Upgrade for Maglites

You never forget your first flashlight, and for many of us that was a classic baton-style Maglite. While times have changed and smaller flashlights are now able to put out tremendous power, that's no reason to leave our old favorites behind! The Terralux MiniStar 5 is a drop-in that replaces old incandescent bulbs with a brand-new LED that produces up to 200 Lumens of cutting edge lighting power! This LED upgrade works specifically with Maglite 2-3 C or D Cell

The MiniStar 5 is compatible with most generations of Maglite; however much older lights with "pin style" contacts will not work. Please refer to this illustration to make sure your light is compatible.

  • INTENSE BRIGHT LIGHT output comes from the ultra efficient 3 Watt LED which is estimated to output 200 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 MiniStar 5 preserves one of the most outstanding features of the Mag Instruments™ line of flashlights, the ability to focus. The MiniStar 5 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.
  • STANDARD MAX RUNTIME is 30 hours.
  • 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 MiniStar 5 just replaces your existing bulbs - no modifications necessary!

New life for old Maglite
May 17, 2019
I wasn't happy with the output of my old 2-D Maglite when the batteries started to get low but this LED bulb sure gave it new life.

I had an old version so it took a few minutes with a Dremel bit to enlarge the hole to fit but it dropped in and lit up.

This evening I was able to spot my black cat 100 yards away where the old bulb (same batteries) would just make reflectors sorta glow at that range.

Great focus, really white light. Wonderful upgrade.

Bright, still works perfectly 12 years later. Increases the run time of the 2 D maglite by hours.

Easy to replace old incandescent style bulb and the flashlight is no longer using lots of batteries

Superb value

The bulb on my Maglite was so dim, I thought the batteries were dying. I could barely discern a fence line 20m away. On the exact same set of batteries, with this LED bulb, I can clearly identify small critters 150m away.

Nice Improvement to my MagLite
April 22, 2019
Overall pleased with this bulb. Battery Junction is the only seller I found with a photo of the different MagLite styles and which bulb to order for each style. Output is much brighter than the original MagLite bulb, so am pleased overall.

However...while this bulb did eventually work with my 2 cell MagLite, it was necessary to bore the threaded bulb cap to a larger diameter opening in order for the bulb cap to drop down over this wider bulb before it could be threaded down and secured into place. Once I did that, it worked fine.

If you don't have a drill press and a step-bit, this might be a tricky (if not unsafe) maneuver.

Overall, pleased with the bulb and its improvement to my MagLite.

Will this fit the Gordon (Harbor Freight) 3-D flashlight (and focus reasonably)?
1 Answer
This TerraLUX LED upgrade is meant to fit Maglites 2-3 C/D cell flashlights. Unfortunately, we do not carry Gordon flashlights at this time, so we are unable to test this. Unfortunately BatteryJunction does not encourage our customers to “mix and match” untested or unsupported combinations of LED upgrades and flashlights. This behavior can be potentially dangerous to the user, as well as the flashlight.
