Cells can handle current consumption on turbo? Unprotected cells?
If it is new, contact seller and replace with working one.

Not exactly a helpful suggestion when someone already owns the light. He was using protected batteries, not an issue with the light itself Smile

Protected batteries are meant to protect the battery from giving too much power to the device using it (depending on the protection, I’ve seen protected 18650s that trip at a low 3 Amps current, with most I’ve tested that trip at 6 Amps. I think some trip at 8+ Amps — I’ve not been able to test some higher ones since I’ve read about those protected high-drain 18650s but don’t have one — usually more expensive flashlight-branded rewrap).

The MT09R will need a lot of power in Turbo mode, I’m not sure how much, but will likely draw more than 6 Amps of power per battery, thus Turbo mode will blink once then shut off the battery.

Yeah, the ’09R is the only light that I feed with VTCsomethings. 5, 5A, 6, forgot.

I figured it needs beefier cells to make the most use of the brighter end of the scale.

I really should use protected cells (4S), but I think mine are nekkid. I just don’t draw it down too much without topping off.

This is the 3×21700cell pop can size 4x SBT90.2 25ish thousand lumen powa-sukka! Yeah I’d get the highest max discharge unprotected cells I could find. I don’t find it surprising turbo doesn’t work with protected low discharge cells. Samsung 30/40T’s? Molicell 4200/Vapecell INR21700 30Amp continuous discharge. Maybe the Sofirn 4000mAh 40Amp cell. I’ve wanted this light for a while now…the $500 price tag had made me really think about it.
