Dealers corner, AW ships international for affordable.

Great batteries since oveready.com doesnt sell international anymore

I’m glad I’m not the only flashlight collector out there, I was beginning to think I was strange.

Hope it works, does your extension tube not thread up?

when i run the m3x on 2 18650 cells i have to unscrew the extension tube a few mm and tighten the pocket clip retaining ring back to it to lock it there… if i dont do this and just tighten the extension tube as you would think straight onto the lights body the light starts to go on and off at random in use as if it has a loose connection. im thinking the 18650s may be too long as it works fine all tightened up on primarys which are a quite a bit shorter than the two 18650s.

Do you have any unprotected cells ? They might work

no i dont have any. iv actually emailed the supplier of the light and he says to send it back for testing…. if they come up with ‘its fine’ and send it back though i will have to try 2 18500 or 3 rcr123 in it….. im not even sure if it will run these. hoping its a problem with the light and i get a repair or replacement to be honest.

The Olight peeps are pretty solid, they’ll probably fix it for yah. Might just be the pill needs to be tightened in or maybe the extender was just a little off spec when machined. I don’t own any but if I had more money I would Smile

Is that the diving light? I have the M10 and I needed to clean the contacts on the hea and then loosen and re tighten the head onto the body a few times cause mine was fluctuating, does anything appear loose?
