Mini MagLite PRO LED Flashlight Review 

 May 2, 2020

By  keithb

I was recently given a Mini Maglite LED Pro+ (blue model) as a gift, and wow does this little flashlight put out some powerful light.

I was a slightly skeptical considering how small the Maglite was but the LED in this flashlight is extremely powerful with 272 lumens and uses only 2 aa batteries (which were included in the packaging).

Maglite Candle Mode

This Maglite LED comes with a candle mode which is very convenient when your electricity goes out or even if you are camping. 

All you do is twist the top of the Maglite and you have candle mode functionality. Just set the light down on a table or the ground and you are good to go. This lights up the whole room with 272 lumens, so no need to worry about it not being bright enough.

You could even hang the flashlight from a string or hook with its loop on the bottom.  

Battery Life

Battery life of this flashlight is pretty good, however considering it is an LED flashlight I would expect longer life (flashlights tend to claim the low end when it comes to battery life but it is possible it will give you a much longer life). Its package shows around 2.5 hours. I would expect it to give you more though.

Other Information

  • Size – 11.9 x 6.1 x 5.3 inches
  • Weight – 2.4 ounces
  • Aluminium construction and plastic lens


  • Cool white 272 lumen LED (Bright for its size and will give a long life since it is LED)
  • Good corrosion water and shock resistance (For those of you that are hard on your flashlights)
  • Long battery life utilizing the LED technology
  • Sturdy aluminium construction (A Maglite staple)


  • Doesn’t come with a replacement LED (Not a huge issue since LED’s have such a long life)
  • Only 1 brightness mode, I prefer at least a low and a high


Overall I am loving my Mini Maglite Pro+ it offers great light with great performance.

If you are looking for a good dependable flashlight to throw in your bug out bag or even looking to give as a gift this is a great option!
