TriLight, 3x 1W LS + Mag body, retail $90-$110
Manufactured by InReTECH
Last updated 03-06-06

Here's yet another bright idea from the minds of InReTech!
Housed in a 3-D Maglight body (one way you can get yours), the TriLight lights your way with three 1-watt Luxeon Star LEDs. This is another light you don't want to aim at your face and push the button, because it's BRIGHT!!!


Use the TriLight as you would use a big Mag-Lite; because it uses the Mag's body. Press the button on the barrel to get light, press it again to get dark.

The TriLight feeds from 3 size D cells, pulling about 530-540 milliamps from them.

To change dead batteries, unscrew & remove the tailcap, and dump the dead batteries in the nearest garbage can (or the dead battery box, if your community has a battery reclamation program), and load three new ones in button (+) end first, then screw the tailcap firmly back on. Done with that, ya!!!

This is a tough light, right from the get-go. The body of the unit is made by Mag Instruments.

Although I've knocked over and dropped this light a few times, I haven't tried to drown it in the toilet, run it over with a 400lb electric wheelchair, or bash it against a steel rod more than a few times - I stop when the downstairs neighbor starts beating on his ceiling with a toilet plunger handle, letting me know he can hear me beating the piss out of the flashlight and that I ought to stop.

Beam photo
Quickie measurement: 400,000mcd! :-)
Used a LM631 light meter for testing.

Test unit was received in early 2003.

UPDATE: 07-25-03
A Trilight powered from 4 D cells instead of 3 reads 740,000mcd on a Meterman LM631 light meter. The original (using 3 cells) registered 400,000mcd on the same meter.

I borrowed this 4-cell TriLight from a fellow CPFer on 07-22-03, with the understanding he needs it back in about a week.

Here's a beam picture of the 4 cell version at ~12" away from the target.

InReTECH is now closing its doors because the owner can no longer keep it operational. This and all other InReTECH web pages will be kept available for the benefit of current InReTECH product owners.
