Maglite Solitaire 4xLR932 Warm White LED Mod - tam White, Warm, 4xLR932, Solitaire, Maglite,
Well, this mod has been around for a while, but this is the first time I've actually performed one. I've made three or four Solitaire conversions based on 23A (12V) battery, 25,000mcd cool white 5mm LED and a suitable resistor, and gave them away to friends and family members. Of course those were resistored, direct-drive, low-tech lights, and a 23A car alarm battery ain't no powerhouse either. But what the heck, I had plenty of free time and the final result was a major improvement compared to a stock Soli.

Recently I've made some LED resistor calculations on a specialized website (ledcalc.com), and realized that disproportionate amount of 12V battery's energy goes to waste in the current-limiting resistor. So this time I've decided to use four 1.5V LR932 batts without a resistor, relying altogether on high internal resistance and voltage sag of the tiny alkaline cells and keeping my fingers crossed that overcurrent won't fry my cheap LED. This same principle is used on my other...
Solitaire LED scheduled for Christmas 2011? - tam 2011, Christmas, scheduled, Solitaire,
Personal inquiry at Maglite and some information gathered on another specialized forum has lead me to conclusion that Maglite has scheduled the release of Solitaire's long-expected LED version for Christmas 2011. No specs so far.

I guess we'll just have to wait and see what happens.

Cheers,

Tam
