Nite Ize: Flashlight Combo Upgrade


One of the most popular flashlights ever made is the Maglite. Of its many incarnations, the Mini Maglite that operates on two AA batteries is one of the most popular lights in the line. Now Nite Ize has found a way to improve upon the original.

See, the problem with the Mini Maglite is that it requires the operator to rotate the lamp to turn it off and on—not an easy thing to do wearing gloves or when your hands are wet. Nite Ize has solved this problem with an upgrade package consisting of an IQ Switch and an LED light that provides a longer battery life.

The IQ Switch gives you three power levels and two emergency strobes. It also has a mini LED built in, to aid you in finding the light in the dark. You also will receive a new lamp reflector because the LED is slightly wider than the standard light bulb.

I installed this combo upgrade on my ancient Mini Maglite to see if it really does work as advertised. I'm here to say, it sure does. This user-installed upgrade gave my light an instant face lift. The LED assembly is bright and the switch is easily turned on and off with the touch of a finger.
