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.
