Mag is and always been my favorite flashlight. – Flashlights for professionals
About 22 years ago I purchased a 4 cell Maglite for work. A little later I purchased 2 of the smaller double A mini Maglites, a blue one and a black one. I lost the black one shortly thereafter. A couple days ago I tore down a small bridge in my backyard that I built to get to an outbuilding when it rained. Upon tearing out the bridge, I found my black Mag-lite I had lost all those years ago, buried in mud and water for all those years, I expected it was ruined. I took it inside to the kitchen sink and washed it off and let it dry. I took out the old batteries that still looked new and replaced them with new ones, gave the head a twist and it worked perfectly. Mag is and always been my favorite flashlight.
