Astrolux C8 led alignment
Hi, my Astrolux C8 beam looks like the led is not centered properly. Looking at the reflector and led its hard to see any alignment problem. I was wondering if anyone has managed to take the head apart for modding etc? and has anyone else had this problem?

Hi mikelight,

I can’t say that I’ve had this issue but what I can say is if you want to disassemble the head be gentle and unscrew the bezel slowly. As the last time I unscrewed one of my Convoy C8 the whole lens/reflector assembly twisted with the bezel and twisted the LED emitter clean off its PCB!

I may have had a bad one where the solder was weak but just make sure that the o-ring/lens/reflector are not ceased together while unscrewing the bezel Thumbs Up

I’ve unscrewed all the parts on my Astrolux C8 and two Convoy C8’s. No problems with things being stuck together. I guess be careful, but things should come apart okay if it’s normal.

Thanks WalkIntoTheLight. I have managed to slowly unscrew it. It was very tight.
