Lumintop EDC05 warm even when off for a while

I accidentally inserted a flat-top 14500 the wrong way for a few seconds. Now, the flashlight smells burnt. It still works fine. But when my light is turned off for a while, it feels warm to the touch unlike my Astrolux S3. I think it is also draining my battery.

Is my EDC05 broken? Any help on how to fix this?

The edc05 does not advertise reverse polarity protection … some of their lights dont have it

Did u use a protected bat?

Chances are something has shorted inside and is causing the heat

I would STOP using it, especially with an unprotected bat
