    This was a link that was posted on AT a few months ago. I thought I would give it a try. Let me tell you this flashlight is unbelievably bright. It takes all but 5 mins to mod the flashlight. Picked up the bulb at Radio Shack, the flashlight at Home Depot, and the batteries at Wally World.

    Here is the comparison of the original and the modded flashlight

    Interesting. I used the link yesterday. Well if anyone wants to know how to make them they can paypal me 5 bucks and I will send the instructions to you.:biggrin1:

    All kidding aside I will post instructions if anyone ask.

    Looks like the entire website is down. It'll be back up sometime.

    Here is a picture of the flashlight

    These flashlights are the small Eveready flashlights. They are about the same size as the minimags.

    I found some at the proshop for 5 buck (2 of them). I did buy the expensive ones. I want to see how long they last.

    One of mine is working, the other not sooo much. The light bulb wasn't fitting into the base correctly so it was too close to the lens. they get really friggin hot and it melted the lens. Good thing it only cost me 4 bucks for a new flashlight though. And 1.29 for a new bulb....
