This is how my S43S from BG came:

There’s a blob of solder joining one pad to the outer ring of the driver board. And the other pad does not have any solder at all.

Here is how it is supposed to look:

Can anybody explain what I am seeing? Bad workmanship? A returned light which had to be repaired?
It seems to work okay..

My guess is too much solder was used when installing the second pcb and it touched the ground ring. Once that happens removing it is basically impossible.

Although in this case that rod and the ground ring are connected anyways so if anything it would lower resistance and should not effect the light.

Thanks for info. If you think it should not affect anything (operation/reliability/safety) then I won’t complain to BG.
I just thought it looked very ugly and amatuerish compared to other owners pictures.

Yeah, it is ugly for sure but it should not effect the operation of the light.

Well, this isn’t about the S43 but about it’s clone (at least concerning the body design…)! Facepalm

Similar “looking”, but not the same light.

You should probably delete the link. (rule violation)

My bad, I read the thread title and was thinking this was a Group Buy thread from Freeme or MadMax, etc.. but it’s not. It’s just a regular thread. Link is okay.

(On Group Buy threads the OP is basically drumming up business, so if someone posts a link to a competing light it can take away sales. I don’t know if it’s an official rule or more a courtesy/respect thing.)
