This easy-to-install tail cap switch fits an incandescent AA Mini Maglite®, and once it's in place, turns your flashlight into very useful, multi-functional tool. It features 5 light modes (100%, 50%, 25% power, slow, fast strobe) with 3 power levels, so you can choose the function you need for your particular task at hand and extend your battery life in the process! And for extra battery conservation, when you're in the first three modes, the flashlight turns itself off after 14.5 minutes when it's not in use, preventing accidental battery drainage. It's also equipped with a "find-in-the-dark" flashing LED to make location a snap.
