Lumintop GT Mini button response issue

Hi Members,
my GT Mini’s button never worked perfectly. Got the light as gift, there was nowhere to go for warranty.
Now it got working randomly, one fifth click is responded by the light – approximately.
Did somebody of you encounter this problem? Have you got an instruction on how to remove the button cap?
Thank you in advance for your help.

Probably same switch as in GT Micro. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t.

Thank you forummate, when the light was new an insider – don’t remember who he was – said these problems come due to the special rubber button. It should have installed accurately to have the illuminated smiley along the light axis. If there was a minor angle the button would not work properly. I would like to try aligning the rubber button, but I need to access it first.

the gt mini has to go have the worst button ever on a flashlight, when i got mine long ago from neal i got a replacement head shortly after and its been ok but i thought they fixed this on newer version of this light?

I think mine comes from early times of GT Mini.

I’m sorry to learn it’s a general issue. I’m afraid it’s the result of the design which put a logo (a smiley) on the button and it only works when properly positioned. Perhaps people who assembled these lights were not fully aware of this.

I would like to hear from those who have Lumintop GT Mini Pro: Any malfunctioning of the switch?

I have the GT Mini Pro on my Black Friday shopping list. Innocent
