p60 (WF-504B) switchs

Hello guys... I am going to make a purchase from DX tomorrow morning (including a Trustfire X9 Smile) and was wondering which of the following switches would fit best in the Ultrafire WF-504B and which is the most durable. The only part of the torch I do not trust is the switch (current one is broken).

Edit: if you know of anywhere else that sells good quality switches (at a reasonable price) or ones that are mod-able to make them reliable I would love to hear where. Cheers

 

Thanks for your time.

Be carefull, if I am not wrong there are 2 different versions of the 504b (old and new) and I dont know if the swtich is identical on both.


Diassembly yours and look at it. Then, it should be one of the following:

These require soldering

Thanks for the reply... well after playing round with the switch a bit (while measuring it up) I found out it is not actually broken... seems there is just bad contact between the retaining ring and the switch. Go figuar

Your reply did in a way fix the problem though.. it made me measure up the switch. It would have sucked to order a switch only to find it did not fix the problem. Now all I have to do is figuar a way of keeping the retaining ring and switch in constant contact.

Cheers

I have indeed. All I had to do was sand down the isolator in the retaining ring and hay presto... works fine.
