Mag Instruments, Inc. produces the Maglite Solitaire, a flashflight powered by a single AAA battery. The Solitaire, the smallest in the Maglite line, uses a single high-intensity incandescent bulb encased in an anodised aluminium body. But you can convert your Maglite Solitaire from an incandescent bulb to a light-emitting diode (LED), even if you're not a particularly gifted DIYer.

Skill level:

Things you need

    Remove the incandescent light bulb by gently pulling it from its socket.

  3. 3

    Insert the LED light bulb by gently pushing the bulb into the socket. Note: There are LEDs available for sale that are specifically for the Maglite Solitaire. Make sure your replacement LED is the correct size and equipped to fit the Solitaire.

  4. 4

    Re-install the lamp head. Screw the lamp head back onto the body of the flashlight.
