Problem with Fancy Flashlight

I recent order SkyRay King, DQG 18650 EDC and a black XIAOZHI CREE XM-L T6.
The two first were ok, but the XIAOZHI was clearly defective, its turn off randomly and now even turn on.
Send two mails to Ric but he did not answer.
No order 2013072613196

It was a long holiday weekend and this weekend also hosted the biggest hurricane since 1984.

The low mode should be lower.

Ric gets busy but always comes through.

My XIAOZHI just took a dump as well. It’s been in use for a while so I’m not going to send it back but I know that I would not put this light on my list of lights to buy. It was kinda off from the start so I think it had a bad driver from day one. I’ll end up modding it someday when I get around to it. Probably go for a high CRI in it. With a LOW low driver. When mine took a dump it took out the emitter as well.

I’m a junky, I mod lights so I can sell lights so I can buy more light to mod so I can sell lights to buy more lights to mod.

Mine was having problems with the switch and doesnt turn off/on sometimes too after mostly very light use and a short time owning it. The light whines very loudly on medium, less on low mode as well. Ric has said he’d send me a replacement switch for the first problem, I’m sure he would for yours too.

After reviewing posts about it, it seems there are a lot of issues with the Xiaozhi model, I wonder if the Convoy that looks the same is any better quality?
