Reader Brian sent an email to Maglite inquiring about their 4-LED series that was promised "in 2006." The result was an actual email sent by a human being rather than the canned ejaculate of a mailbot. Let's listen in:

Here is the schedule we plan to use to deliver our Mag-LED lights:
2, 3 & 4 cell D Maglites in Black will be available in May or June
LED upgrade kits for the D cells will be available in June or July
2 and 3 cell AA Mag-LEDs will be available in July or August
No upgrade kits will be produced for the AA and AAA lights.
The new products will be found in most Hardware and discount stores.

Very nice.
