  1. A solid aluminum barrel so it will survive a drop onto concrete, or other physical abuse
  2. An LED (light emitting diode) bulb or the new COB (chip on board) bulb
  3. Waterproof construction with rubber O rings at the screw-on openings
  4. Easy access to change the batteries
  5. Made in USA
  6. Warranted for life, or at least several years. Maglites used to have a lifetime warranty. In 2019, the manufacturer stopped giving this warranty. Still, it will last a very long time.
  7. High quality deep laser engraving that will last forever. This is much better than screen printing, because it won’t wear off or scratch off.

5 Answers to Your Questions About Getting a Maglite Engraved With Your Logo

When business owners think about giving a Maglite engraved with their logo to their employees, here are their top questions:

  1. Can I get a Maglite in my corporate color? The K3A comes in 8 different colors. Probably one of them will correspond with your corporate color. Many other models come in colors other than the basic black, blue, gray and red.
  2. Does it have a lifetime warranty? Maglite used to offer a lifetime warranty, but that stopped about 2019. Now it appears that they handle warranty questions one at a time on their website, using a form. They don’t have a written warranty posted on their website as of today.
  3. Does the imprint wear off? The laser engraved imprint is permanent. Your company logo will last forever. The laser burns through the colored outer layer, and into the aluminum barrel.
  4. What does laser engraving cost? The price of engraving is included in the price of the Maglite. There is a setup charge.
  5. How is the flashlight packaged? Each Maglite engraved with your logo comes in a hard plastic hinged presentation box, with a velvet covered cradle. So your customer or employee will be thrilled to see their favorite flashlight in a unique gift box.

Big Surprise For Promotional Maglites Warranty

Maglite® Flashlights Warranty
Maglite® Flashlights Warranty

Promotional Maglites (Maglights is a common misspelling) will display your company logo for a very long time. But did you know that their famous lifetime limited warranty was just reduced to 10 years? I wouldn’t worry about the quality of this famous flashlight. I think that the company is just streamlining its cost of production and maintenance, to keep up with the competition. If a Maglite used to last a lifetime, it will probably continue to do so.

Here is part of the text from the Maglite website today:

“TEN YEAR LIMITED WARRANTY— Mag Instrument, Inc. warrants to the original owner that this flashlight is free from defects in parts and workmanship for ten years from the date of first retail purchase.”
