Iv owned the same D size Mag light for about 6 years now & was looking to get another one but didn't realise the price now, i think i payed $35 for the 3 x D size one & saw them in the shops today for $75.

Is this the normal price, anyone know of a cheaper place to shop ?

Cheers,

Kev.

Hi Kev:
I know the feeling - I also have a 3D maglite and thought it might be "cute" to get a rechargeable one and set it up in my 80 series. Then I priced them .... oops. I will just keep buying alkaline batters I think.

Safe travels ..

lol, yeah i thought it would be cool to have a rechargable one too but for $240 (i think) i don't think its that important.

Beter off buying rechargable batteries for the old one.

Can't beat the Maglite with the halogen globes.

All depends on where you buy them from.
I know my local sports store has em for $70 whereas Horsley Park Gun store will sell exactley the same for $50 (well 2 years ago anyway)

Just an idea - I always like to use either 2, 4 or 6 cell mags as You cant buy 3 or 5 batteries at a time. Most C or D size batteries come in packets of either 2 , 4, or 8.

We gave up on the Maglite's and went to a product called Streamlight. Nothing wrong with the mag's but they were just too big and heavy and hard to pack in the vehicle (OH &S issues)
The streamlight is about 1/4 the size but still with about the same light output.
Rechargeable with either 12 or 240 volt connector. the 12 volt setup is small enough to go in the glovebox with the torch in it. The torch will fit in your pocket.
Burn time is about 3 hours.
Very happy with them.

Scary bit, they cost us $180.00 with chargers. However with the heavy use we give them we are recovering the cost by not buying batteries.

We were getting about 8-10 hours out of batteries in the maglites.
