Maglites are fantastic torches, with a build quality and weightiness that feel just as good as being able to illuminate a dark room. But what if you can swap in an LED bulb yourself and make it even brighter and better? With Nite Ize, you can.

The $US10-$US15ish upgrade consists of an LED bulb and a few fittings to turn your yellowish, loosely focused light into a bright white beam. There are different LED upgrade kits for different Maglites, so make sure you get the correct one. What’s neat is that the light isn’t just brighter and whiter, LEDs are also more efficient, so your flashlight lasts longer too.

This long as hell YouTube video illustrates how to swap in the light, and how it looks in comparison with the default Maglite. You’ll want to skip around, because who has time to watch a 13-minute video about torches?
