Thread: Got the NEW Maglite ML25IT 2C

    Yes. 5 cell will be a bit brighter than the 6 cell bulb being slightly (and safely) over driven. I picked the TL3 bulb for the better beam quality, yet it is slightly under driven.

    I tried all 3 back in 016 and ended up using the TL3 bulb.

    Cool thanks!

    Will any of these melt anything in a stock ML25it?

    Slightly. If you use it a few minutes at a time some blistering around the bulb area will show up but nothing bad. I ran mine 15-20 minutes at a time and got minor blistering with a stock lens and reflector. If you drill out about a millimeter or three around the bulb that won't be an issue as the bulb hugs the reflector.

    Just take note of the raised area near the bulb on the back side of the reflector. It is what pushes down on the on/off switch similar to a minimag.


    About 2 hours total use


    Can drill some without issue


    Really hugs the bulb.

    So yeah, removing a little plastic from away from the bulb can help heat spread away from the plastic better.
    This one has the TL3 bulb.

    Someone asked about Tads bulbs. Yes they will work too. And using a pair of C cells makes it possible to Yuji these too, if you want a low power mega runtime version.

    Thanks for all the info and pics!

    I wonder if something could be added to the back of the reflector for some heat sinking?

    6D bulb will produce less brightness and less temperature than 5D
    If your main concern is melting problem, then try 6D bulb first.
