Nitecore Tube problem

A couple of my Nitecore Tubes worked well for a while.
Now when I switch on to High the light flashes, works OK on the low setting.

I have other Tubes that are OK – for now.

Anyone have any ideas what can be wrong & is this fixable ?

my first tube did exactly the same after a few weeks of use suddenly flashes on high but works ok on normal, i think a defective battery or bad solder job?, my other one works ok so i guess some quality issues on some… i think since this tube is not exactly a super expensive light keychain certain quality flaws exist Sad

Im sure u can fix this if u have some skills but i cant be bothered to do that since i dont know exactly whats wrong, maybe someone in here can help?

I have looked on the Web & this seems to be a common problem.
In my opinion a failure rate of 2 out of the 4 Tubes I have mean only one thing.
A rubbish product that I will not buy again.

Although they are fairly cheap from various Chinese dealers its not worth the effort of trying to claim anything under warranty.
