Mag finally does LED

Saturday, August 19th, 2006 at 1:46 pm

Today I spotted an advertisement in the paper (a full page in the weekend magazine opposite the sudoku) for MAG-LED™ Technology indicating that 2, 3 and 4 D cell LED models and a two AA LED model were available. It also displayed an LED upgrade module for 2, 3 and 4 C or D cell models which (if I want to) would let me upgrade the 2 D cell model I have had for a few years now.

When I was next on my computer I decided to check out their website to see what else there was. What did I see? The same page that has been up for quite some time saying that they “are pleased to report that Mag will soon be adding MAG-LED™ flashlights to its product line.”

Surely it is a lot less effort to update their website than it is to produce full page advertisements in print publications?

The one light that I am interested in is not mentioned in the advertisement, the solitaire. I have one of these with my keys and a couple of times I have looked for a similar sized LED light but haven’t been able to find a suitable replacement. I hope they are planning to release an LED version.

On a final note it will be interesting to see how these LED lights compare to the dozens (if not hundreds) of lights that have appeared over the past few years.

There was a bit of a glitch at the start but now after downloading the lastest version of the server and then performing a firmware upgrade (it was automatic) it is all good…
