Klarus Mi7 Power Switch - two stage like?

Hi all, I have just received some of my Klarus Mi7 and I noticed the switch don’t have the same travel or more like a single vs two stage switch (half press like on digital cameras) and I really don’t like the latter since it doesn’t do anything and only confuses me thinking it already bottomed out.


Does anybody else has this strange button behavior?

Here’s a couple of photos to illustrate the half press before the click.

There is no half press position on my Mi7. Just one continuous motion til it bottoms out

Thanks for the input.


Anybody else has this too much pre-travel on their Mi7 switch?

7 out of 10 Mi7 already arrived and 4 out of 7 has this problem Tired On the brighter side, the other two have minimal pre-travel vs first 2 Mi7 but still its bothering me every time I press the switch.


To those who already opened their Mi7: Do you think this pre-travel (switch mechanism) is fixable?
