Have you measured the resistance of the switch?

Can anyone tell me if the strobe is a “high” strobe or a “low” strobe?

I caved and bought one of these from DD last night. $12.32 shipped (with coupon) was just too good to pass up!!!

this is super strange, resistance is normal. i have to tighten it supertight for it to work. mayb the gel thats lubbing the metal thread is preventing a complete circuit.

Yes there is something with a switch/tailcap, i still dont know what exactly.

Just know I wanted to risk and to check if I can put in it fully charged 14500 cell (4,10-4,11V).
Nothing… I put back old 14500 I used in it, 3,6-3,7V… nothing – switched them several times, nothing.
I thought the flashlight is lost (not knowing why), and than I tried again and it works normally.)

SO, do it on your own risk, but my (bought from dinodirect) works perfectly good with full trustfire flames protected batts.

Ill report here if any changes.

This is cute light and it’ll rpobably be one of my 2 or 3 most used lights (the other one is keychain Tank 007 E09, and least used of these 3 most used, Ultrafire 980, for use when away from home Smile )

(Oh yes, on the bike I use different mostly p60 sized flashlights,, I didnt count that in)

It has so high parasitic drain that it can drain your average 14500 cell in cca 20 hours. (so you have to unscrew tailcap a little)
