Mag Instrument, Inc. was founded in 1955 by Anthony Maglica, who was also responsible for developing the famous Maglite brand of flashlight at the end of the 1970s. Introduced in 1979, the Maglite quickly became popular with police officers, firefighters and mechanics, with its rugged anodised aluminium construction and reliable performance.
Early Maglite torches used high-quality krypton or xenon bulbs, whereas newer models benefit from integrated LEDs. Energy-efficient LEDs ensure a phenomenally long battery life, which is extended even further in some Maglite models with power monitoring technology.
Reassuringly weighty and solid, the Maglite torch in all its forms is a fantastic example of good design. Enduring in its appeal, it is a great choice of portable light for all types of use, whether recreational or professional.
