HELP: Lumintop Tool AA 1.0C repair

So one of my favorite EDC lights is the Lumintop Tool AA. Long story short I wanted to swap lenses in my most carried Tool AA 1.0 C to a fresh non-scratched lense and while doing so (not fully knowing what I was doing) I broke the power and ground wires connecting the driver to the emitter board. I don’t have the tools and or skills to do the soldering or repair and I was wondering if someone could help me.

Now I know there is the Tool AA 2.0, but I’ve never really been a fan of memory modes and they don’t make it in blue either. So that’s why I’d prefer to just repair the one I already have. I have multiple functioning Tool AA 1.0s so I can provide parts if need be, but I was also kind of hoping to maybe upgrade the LED/emitter to something brighter perhaps.

I’m obviously willing to pay for the services and help. PM me or reply if you can help or know someone who can help. Thanks!

I live north of Wichita, KS, USA. I don’t mind shipping out the light though, but yes getting it fixed locally would be awesome.

I can certainly fix it. But I’m in Canada. You’d be better served with a usa based modder.

Yes I totally agree, what I should of said is “I can/am willing to ship the light within the US” haha

Try a local Vape shop.
Most owners have skills and probably would hook you up and you can shop good batteries while there and maybe buy some as a sign of good will besides paying for the repair of course.
