Astrolux FT03 Issue

Happened all of a sudden. Turns on, hold press for ram up. It does not quite get so bright. Double press, there is no turbo. Then light seems to blink three times, pause, three times again.

It seems to be in a sort of muggle mode but I dont think this light has one.

Any thoughts?

The battery is a 20 amp 26650 vapecell. 100 % charge

Check your battery. Sounds like low voltage .

Do you have another cell to test with?

Strange, I put a Orbtronic 10A battery in and it seem to work fine. The only other difference is the Vapecell is about 1/8 shorter .
