    They also have the 6 D-cell Maglite in a plain box for $23.36. It may or may not accept aftermarket LED bulbs, the one I just bought from Amazon did accept the TerraLUX 1000 lumen upgrade kit and it freaking rocks!

    ^ I'm still wondering why it's worth spending 60% more for one more cell in the light, though at the same time a 4 x D cell light seems even better since nobody sells a 5 pack of D cells.

    Really though, I'd just as soon it were a 4 x AA cell (NiMH/Eneloop powered) light since 4 cells run down to 0.9V each at the end of their usable capacity, is still about right for the forward voltage of a typical 3W LED.

    FYI, sholling's link changed, put an "e_" between the "t" and "D", pasted into your browser. More details in this Candlepower forum thread including pics:

    I like the balance better on the 6-cell and the extra battery life. If I wanted small I'd buy another Fenix and I do EDC a PD32 and have two TK35s. But for the car and a 35 mile each way pitch black country road commute I want the 6-cell's (w/LED upgrade) long life if I ever have to walk home. I have another on order for walking my lab at night in coyote country.
