Maglite shows on their website the runtime and brightness of their standard flashlights. In order to compare the LEDs with respect to the original lamps, a number of measurements were done. Here the 3D maglite is equipped with a new Philips Powerlife Alkaline batteries. To get a more realistic measurement the lights were turned on and off every 15 minutes. The hours above were measured with a timer and were rounded to the nearest half hour. The transition of bright to noticeable weaker is objective, each person may therefore experience this differently. Please note that each measurement depends on the status, age and capacity of the batteries. The data is mainly intended to give a indication and to make the comparison with the original bulbs easier.
