    where do you buy the metal reflector and glass replacement? Can you change 2 C cell batteries the same way?

    thanks for the info

    metal reflector was purchased from someone on CP ( candlepower)forms, 2 C battery would not have enough voltage.

    Also, the brightest bulbs are Halogens from Welch-Allyn or Osram.
    A WelchAllyn 01185-U bulb produces 1,300 lumens for under $100 and some work.

    In reality and with proper equipment, the output is 17.5 times brighter than the stock size Maglite with a normal bulb and fresh batteries.

    Also, if you had done your research, you would know that rechargeable batteries are only 1.2 volts, so you are only really getting about 7.2 volts our of that battery pack.

    If you had done YOUR research, you would know that 7.2Vdc is still greater than 3Vdc, so it doesn't really matter, the voltage output is still greater. Idea: Use 3V rechargeable batteries (usually for digital cameras), they are slightly smaller but then you could mod the flashlight so it could carry xenon headlight bulbs. Probably won't last long but it would be very bright.
