Last week, I posted my review of Opalec’s NewBeam MiniMag LED upgrade kit. This week, a similar offering called the MiniStar2 from TerraLux, as well as two options for tailcap switches.
Like the NewBeam, the MS2 is a pop-in replacement for the standard Mag lamp, along with the associated replacement parts to allow the new module to fit properly. Also like the NewBeam, the MS2 features a step-up transformer circuit to boost the battery power and keep it constant throughout most of the battery life. Otherwise, though, the MS2 is a very different beast.
