This is the obvious case of to many substandard foreign components with the classic "Made in the U.S.A." flag stickers all over it. The Led components and the circuit boards are all flawed brand new, the only thing that may actually be made at old Mr. Mags Ontario factory is probably the aluminum casting. When I was a student of Electronic Engineering we all new the importance of high quality contacts to assure proper operation. Obviously there are no American Electronic Engineers involved in… Read Full Review

I have had Maglites for years and thought the earlier incandescent ones were pretty good. But the LED one is brilliant. It does all the things the old version did just better and brighter.
mine has been used in really adverse conditions. It has been dropped from height, left on under floorboards for weeks, dropped in water and generally abused. It still is in great shape and works as wellas the day I bought it… Read Full Review

As is the case with just about anything that claims to do all sorts of fancy tricks as extra features, it doesn't do any of them real well, and each detracts from the basic flashlight function. It doesn't need to signal the space shuttle it needs to throw a beam of light in the direction you point it, when you turn it ON. It only stands about a one in five chance of doing that, and is just as likely to start strobing or SOSing right in the middle of whatever you're doing. What it needs is an ON… Read Full Review

I have purchase over fifteen (15) of the 3 Watt LED Mini-Mag lights for all of my employees. They are FANTASTIC. If you are having ANY problems, replace the batteries, then clean all of the electrical surfaces which includes the inside contact with an eraser, the threads with a degreaser acetone or nail polish remover, the base contacts and the spring. THEY WORK PERFECTLY ALL OF THE TIME AND ARE VERY DURABLE!… Read Full Review

Talk about taking a backwards step from the old maglights!!!
1. no hole for a string
2. led light cuts out all the time
3. electronic parts corrode easily and then need to be cleaned regularly but its not possible due to the new design fixing parts into the tube.
4. no spare led bulb (the original has broken so thats handy if your in the dark ) not
5. more expensive
A big thumbs down

I had 2 Led Maglites the 3 watt and the multimode. In my opinion the 3 watt maglight has little if any more light output than the non-3 watt advertised version (SP2209HJ) Look for the package with multi mode electronic switch. The 3 watt version will not have the 4 modes and in my opinion because there is no 25% power mode it is a battey hog with little if any additional light output. The multi version is the one to get. I'm really disapointed that MagLite has chosen to hide their… Read Full Review

I work in the electrical maintenance field. I purchased one of these after a co-worker had shown his to me. Worked great at first,really impressed with the brightness. But then it happened,my co-worker dropped his from a height of about 2 feet and his LED light quit working. About a month later I dropped mine from a heigth of about three feet and it quit working. Busted circuit board or LED. Either way, for 27 dollars and mag-lites reputation for durabilty I and my co-worker were very… Read Full Review

I've Maglite AA - 16 years without any problems. 2D and solitaire are also solid products. Bought 2AA Led 2 months and soon noticed that it does not work with rechargeable batteries! while the industry is generally moving towards more sustainable and "green", the Maglite seems to move elsewhere...
Now, it seems that the AA Led is dead - even the alkaline batteries don't work… Read Full Review

I have had many mini may lights...it seems that when one fails, I find my "extras" and piece together a good one. I don't know where all these circuit boards, transformers and fancy swithches are but mine are simply a straight circuit and if all the physical connections are being made, it works. I can make a good led light light with only one aa battery so low voltage is not an issue...just good connecitons everywhere. There's a connection on the back of the bulb holder and the other… Read Full Review

Thanks to reviewers below - The best advice I saw: It's not the switch! Change the batteries!
Dead batteries don't "look" the same with LED's as they do with plain old flashlights. Once your batteries get drained pretty low, they might have just barely enough voltage to get the LED to light - and then voltage drops, and the LED goes out. It's intermittent because with no load, your battery picks up just a little bit of voltage again, and the LED fires again, voltage drops again, the LED… Read Full Review

There are a few things that some of you complaining about the "switch" should consider. First, the FAQ on www.maglite.com for the Mini Maglite LED Flashlight 2-Cell AA addresses most of these concerns. Also, you may not be aware that the light has four modes; 1) on, 2) half power, 3) flash, and 4) SOS. If you turn the light on and then off and back on quickly it will be in half power mode. If you turn it off and back and again quickly it will flash. Do it one more time at it will flash 3… Read Full Review

the Maglite Mini Maglite LED 2 AA 3 Watt has an unreliable switch which cannot be accessed to fix. Hence alway fiddling with the bulb holder to get it to turn on eventually. Once on it usually stays on. Not the guaranttee you think it is… Read Full Review

Wow, this Mini Maglite LED 2 AA 3 Watt is taking a beating here. I've had (2) identical silver ones, the original 2-mode (on-off) models for almost 2 years and they both perform flawlessly. I got them for a discounted price of around 20 bucks at the time which isn't cheap, but the price is justified. It was the same price as a 2D or 3D, but it's 55 lumen light output places it squarely between the 2D's 36 lumens and the 3D's 76 lumens. The 15-lumen non-LED 2AA Mini-Mag, even at 1/2 the… Read Full Review

I just fixed mine!
Yes the design of the Maglite Mini Maglite LED 2 AA 3 Watt switch on this light is poor. I really like it's size and the amount of light it puts out. So, I would constantly torture myself by trying to use it with the flickering and twisting.
Finally, I resigned to the fact that it was junk and tore into it. I used a hair-dryer to heat up the outside metal casing and then pushed on the metal tabs on either side of the bulb with a pair of needle nosed pliers to… Read Full Review

I dont know what lights these other folks reviewed but the
Maglite Mini Maglite LED 2 AA 3 Watt is superb.
The mini LED has NO switch. It is very long lasting, durable , has a very powerful beam and takes a ton of abuse. I use it for geocaching and it is always in my pack. My comments are for the 3 watt LED light. I need a light that uses AA batteries so that it is compatable with the batteries for my GPS and FRS tramsmitter. It is slightly more expensive but well worth every penny… Read Full Review

I purchased a Maglite Mini Maglite LED 2 AA 3 Watt because I thought that Maglite was a quality brand. Unfortunately, my experience with a bad "switch" doesn't seem uncommon at all. I have to twist it back and forth, change angles, pull up, and pull down.. .. just to get it to produce light for a few seconds. I wish they had just put an on/off button on this expensive piece of rubbish… Read Full Review

I have 2 Solitaire Mini Maglites and they both do not work after minimum use. Sometimes they work intermittently . I have removed tail end cap cleaned steel parts with alcohol. Same intermittent problem sometimes if the cap is half screwed on light works BUT mostly they do NOT work. Good points are small size and tough case… Read Full Review
