MCWK White (KingBright) 20-LED Adapter, retail $40-$65
Manufactured by InReTECH
Last updated 03-06-06
This flashlight is bright, but not quite as bright as the TriLight or Helios, two other adapters you can also get from Inretech. But the MCWK is a lot less expensive than the LS adapters, so this would be a great choise for those with thinner wallets & smaller bank account balances. And the LEDs in it would probably outlast you, your house, and your kids.
Use the MCWK as you would use a 3-cell Mag-Lite; because it uses the Mag's body.
Press the rubberised button on the barrel to get light, press it again to get dark.
Unscrew & remove the tailcap, dump the dead batteries in the nearest garbage can, load three new ones in button (+) end first, then screw the tailcap firmly back on. Done with that, ya!!!
Measured 350mA (17.5mA per LED).
Since the adapter doesn't overdrive its LEDs, they should last a good long time in it.
The batteries should last for many hours, that will have to be tested.
I haven't punished the light yet, as I want to wait for it to get dark so I can try it out first. :-)
Measured 60,100mcd at 1 foot
Used a LM631 light meter for testing.
Test unit was received on 05-19-03 and is in its earliest stages of testing.
