Nitecore TIKI LE Problem

Unfortunately I have a problem with the flashlight. Two months after purchase, the battery lasts a very short time, after a few hours it discharges even without use. The seller is Shenzhen Lights & Lighting Store https://www.aliexpress.com/store/5404070?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.cad85c0fr... We does not respond to messages. It turns out to be a common problem, what do you advise?

Claim via Paypal, or credit card which ever you paid with – if you paid with another method, you probably are stuck with it as is.
I doubt all would be lost – pretty sure someone on here would be able to help you find the fault and fix it, as to whether it would be worth it cost wise is another question.

Charge battery, disconnect from circuit. Measure voltage, than measure again after 24 hours.
If drops, replace battery.

I think it will be hard to replace the battery in the TIKI LE. The problem is strange because it is enough to connect to the charger for a while and it lights up again.

They are buying it somewhere Smile
I was replacing battery in Nitecore tube, so that one should be available too.
