Got a brand new Maglite, the 2 D cell model, put a Dose led upgrade in it, lovely !
Week later stops working, put in a new led, nothing, put in a Maglite Magnum star xenon, nothing.
Batteries fine, so what is wrong, any ideas gratefully received !

My best advise is to put the orihpginal bulb back if possible or the equal replacement of not. If that still doesn’t work then take advantage of Mag’s lifetime warranty and return it for a free replacement or repair.

For what it’s worth I had a mini mag lite that was 30 years old, stopped working 18 months ago for no reason, sent it back and the replaced the internals, good as new! This was almost by return post, under a week, i was pleased with the service.
