Astrolux S42 problem.

I received this Astrolux S42 from banggood. I have fulfilled all specification requirements, but the lantern does not work. The battery is unprotected. I am familiar with the problem of using a protected battery. All parts are tight and the indicator lights up green.
Does anyone have any idea to remove the problem.

You have definitely gotten a detective unit.
Ask for a refund and you should be good to go.

The battery is unprotected. It works well with my Emisar D4.
BG promised me a new head. I guess they’ll be correct.

sucks its not working, clearly a faulty light, i think a crappy batch they sent out :/ ask for full refund, no 5-10$ back only the light clearly is not working. If they want proof make new video and show what battery before u insert so they will see for sure its kaputt..

Apparently this is a general problem. I’m still waiting to get my head. Try with long presses and alternating with quick clicks, this sometimes triggers the flashlight.
Мandatory ask to solve the problem from BG.

I did not watch the whole bideo because it was buffering.
When i received my s42 and samsung 18650-30q from banggood the cell had a very thin invisible sticker over the negative battery end. Just in case you hadnt checked for that.

light addict....yeah I've got the bug.

Ask BG to test the head before sending it to you. They process the order very slowly, I’ve waited 10 days before the they send the light head. Still waiting.

Please make sure you removed the rubber O-rings. I couldn’t get my Astrolux S42 to work until I removed the two rubber O-ring.

this makes no sense the o-rings have nothing to do with the current conducting surfaces

Those of you that have defective heads, do you want to sell them to me when your replacements have arrived?

My head arrived Today, the Flashlight Works Perfect.
@ Mike, sorry i will try it on my One to find the Problem with my head. I Think Porto to Sweden is to much for an 20 Euro Flashlight.

It’s probably less than 20€ and I could use the parts. No worries though, just let me know if you change your mind. I can paypal porto costs prior to sending.

Thanks
