It really looks like a bad solder job, since my replacement (with good old leaded solder and resin flux) held up well.
Lumintop were happy that i pointed it out, and if they are reopening their business any soon, hopefully they will address this issue (and let’s hope for other LED options as well as a lower low mode)

Ok, i did my first reflow ever and it turned out pretty good (except that i put the LED reversed, so plus and negative pads are exchanged now)

I have lost quite some lumens, but the high CRI 4000K SST20 make it a totally different light.

Very happy with it!

Question.

Will future regular Tool AA v2.0 get illuminated clicky switches like the tit one?


My regular (white) Tool AA 2.0 arrived today, and it has an illuminated tail switch. I’m worried about the drain of it though. Won’t it notably run down a 14500 in several days?

Not several days, but i have measured it 10mA, so please take that in mind

Okay, so more like 2 months to fully drain a typical 14500 battery. I take it this is a new feature for the non-Ti Tool AA 2.0 flashlights? I really do not like it and probably would not have selected/bought this light had I known about it. How is it a good idea to half-deplete your battery in a month without ever turning on your light

You can ofcourse disassemble the LED’s in the switch.
