Seeing the post about mag lights got me to thinking.  How the hell do you change the bulb in those little things.  I got one that I use and abuse lot and I know it won't be long before I need to change that bulb.  Any experience with this?

Easy to change the bulbs out.  Unscrew the base, grab the spare, unscrew the lens cover assembly, replace bulb!

Dont touch a new bulb with your bare hands, wear cloth gloves.  The oils from your skin can shorten the bulb life.

The Brinkman Nexstar bulb is twice as bright as the OEM Mini-mag bulb, but you sacrafice some battery life.  Lithium AA's increase brightness and decrease weight.

The Opelec Newbeam is a simple drop in LED conversion that I really like.

Unscrew the lens and the bulb just pulls straight out.  There's usually a spare in the base at the other end.  Just remove the spring and it should be in a little holder.

If you don't want to worry about bulbs, just drop in a [url=http://secure3.dnsaction.com/~anlighte/shop/default.php?cPath=22&osCsid=d23fc99a98ab95781ba5a31acee0c85c]Madmax or Badboy[/url] conversion.

Flashlights can get quite addicting, just bought an ARC LS and a Streamlight TwinTask 2L ....
