Battery problems with Manker LAD?

The battery on my Manker LAD died after about 10 cycles. Light would light when on cable but not on battery. Binned it.

Anyone else experienced these problems?

I’m a bit pissed off as I like the LAD a lot. Might buy a new one unless this turns out to be a common problem.

Might have just been a disconnected wire, should have opened it up for a look.

Oh ok, it’s my fault, shouldn’t have mentioned it. Hypothesis is false as it worked with cable connected …

…so it was drawing power through the cable.
Battery problem, either dud or disconnected, but we’ll never know Wink

Pity Manker isn’t reacting.

Ordered the Astrolux K1 from Banggood with coupon, so cheap. Will write review when I get it. First impression is that it is too big, but ok. Manker would be preferred if not dying on 10 cycles.
