Additional Information


Love the size of a flashlight with C Cells rather than Ds.

Aside from that, gotta love Maglite.

Oh, and it's wierd that I read the instructions on a product such as this, but you never know what you will learn. In this case, right there in the instructions I see that this flashlight comes with an extra bulb! It's hidden in the flashlight. (See the instructions manual for exact location :o) An extra bulb? Great because you never know when you'll drop the light and damage the bulb.

Can't go wrong with this light.

Maglite is a dependable flashlight. Much lighter than the D cell and easier to carry. I have the led light bulb conversion so you don't have to worry about changing bulbs and makes it brighter.

Lighter then a d cell, and works for what I need.

I ordered a two Maglite 3C, but either by mistake or intentional, Amazon substituted 2 Maglite 2D flashlites. Although I don't care for the increased diameter and weight, in the end it didn't much matter because the flashlites are carried in the door pockets of my truck. Also considered was the 2 Maglite AA2 flashlites bundled with the 2D's. Quite a bit of value there for my money. Oh, of course, the flashlites are superb.

I prefer the C size Maglite as it fits my hand better then the D. I first started carrying this light (5 cell version) working armed security in a housing project and liked having this in my hand as a first line of protection. I purchased this 3 cell to keep in my truck.

Love these lights! I mod them with 21700 L-ion batteries & 700 lumen drop in led modules. Makes a bright light with long run time.

Recently lost my D cell mags, so I ordered two of these C cell mags. Seems that you can't hardly find C cell flashlights in the store anymore. I wanted mag lights, but lighter and easy to handle. Walla, here they are!

Great output

I bought my first 3C Maglight over 20 years ago. Due to my own negligence, I've just now had to replace it. My fault, I left old batteries in it and packed it in a box when I moved. The batteries (of course) corroded, but glued themselves inside the housing.

If not for that, I have every confidence it would STILL be working fine. I will be cannibalising it for some valuable spare parts that still work, including bulbs.

This is old-school tech folks, and it works well, forever, and brightly. It comes with an extra bulb in the base (something not noted in the listing, but my original one did as well so the practice hasn't changed. You can dial the light housing to make a very bright focal spot or widen it out for a less strong but much wider area light.

I prefer the 3C model as it has all the power as the D Cell models, but at considerably less weight and cost. Boxed C Cell batteries are aplenty and reasonably priced compared to some limited options on D Cell packages. And the 3C model is still a good size in the hand without being to long like either 4C or 4D models.

This newer model has a different light switch than my original only in that it seems to be almost two-step pressure now. Stage one cause the light to blink with each gentle press to flash the light rather than lock it on with a firmer press until it clicks. Though I don't know morse code, and have no real reason to flash the light, this is still something improved on this model. My original did do this, but it seemed more based on careful pressing and releasing to make it flash before it clicked into place for steady light activation, rather than a planned feature.

While I have never tested mine in it's use underwater, they are at least water resistant with rubber light switch and all seals have rubber "O" rings.

This price point is also very competitive! While Amazon lists it at $20, so $18.85 doesn't seem like much of a discount - these are often listed at $30-$40 depending on where you shop, and my first one 20+ years ago was about $20-25 on sale at that time!

I bought two this time around as they are more solid and reliable than the bright LED "floater" lamps I buy on sale for camping and such because they end up being disposable to me. Sure, you can always buy a new 6volt battery for them, but at twice the price of the sale light with battery. And they don't last long! Battery on those lasts a year with just seasonal use for camping and dark night dog walks.

Having bought two, I am seriously considering buying some more as my true go-to flashlight and for household emergency lighting.

And everyone should have one in their Zombie Apocalypse Survival Bag! What, I'm not the only one with one of those am I...?

Ich bin mit der Lichtausbeute nicht sehr zufrieden. Verarbeitung und sonstige Qualität sind in Ordnung. Ich habe die Lampe bei abendlichen Gassirunden mit dem Hund dabei. Beim nächsten Kauf wird es bei mir wohl keine Maglite mehr. Für den Preis hätte ich einen besseren Lichtausbeute erwartet.

Questa maglite ha le stesse caratteristiche di robustezza e potenza dei modelli più grandi ma è poco ingombrante, quindi comoda da portare dietro

A mio avviso la più equilibrata fra tutti i torcioni mag...un bel modulo led facilmente rinvenibile a modico prezzo sul web e via tanta luce e autonomia. .inoltre rispetto ai nuovi modelli già a led di fabbrica i pezzi sono sostituibili..consigliata

Had the D cell version already. This is a good second light to have.

Compatta e fascio luminoso regolabile

Works as expected

Maglites are an awesome, well made flashlight.
