    Hi, i recently saw a LED flashlight (mag lite) format with an extremely
    high intensity light. Does anyone know where i can get one or how to make
    one?

    Thanks

    Have a look around the "Maxim" web site. I saw a "White LED Driver"
    circuit there quite recently !

    Maglite format? Why so big? Useful as a club I suppose, but Maglite seem
    to have stopped developing their products in the early '80s.

    Surefire U2, a bargain at only $279.

    I carry an Orb Raw NS. 77 lumens (about the same as a 3 D-cell Maglite
    with fresh batteries) in something the size of your thumb, assuming you
    have really short thumbs:

    Plenty more to read about here:

    Or, of course, you could just search:

  4. There are LED retrofit bulbs that will fit in Mag lights.

    One big link to reviews of many of these:

    I have also seen these at Target. Some of these do have a high power
    LED.

    There is also a Dorcy 3-D-cell aluminum body light that uses a Luxeon
    Star LED. There are also more compact LED flashlights that use these and
    similar LEDs, and I always see a bit of a variety of them at Target.

  5. I've seen Maglite LED replacement "bulbs" at Walmart along with
    Maglites and mini-Maglites that come with LEDs and bulbs.

    part number.
