I got a RovyVon Aurora A5 ( UV version ) as a gift, and I absolutely love this little light as a versatile EDC. That said, the main light unfortunately stopped working after a pants-pocket-height fall ( while off ). The side lights work perfectly, so I really want to try and open this light up and see if it can be fixed. Is there anybode here that’s had a stab at tearing one of these down?
PS.: Even though I do not have a receipt, since this was a gift, and it was purchased in the US ( I’m in Honduras ), I contacted RovyVon to ask the same question I’m asking here, and they kindly offered to replace it at no cost, so kickass customer service. They did not, of course, explain how to disassemble the damaged one, but I’d hate not to give it a try.
It is one of the things I've noticed about the Rovyvons, I've never heard of one being opened. So, battery replacements, LED swaps, etc. are all seemingly out of the question.
Now, if they don't want the dead one back, it may be worth doing an autopsy (even if destructive) in the name of science and learning if there is a way to get them open. But since the A5 is plastic (and you can't pull the battery), the usual recommendations of heat + torque to open the bezel don't apply.
Awesome! I did manage to disassemble mine eventually, though my wrist is definitely still sore today. I’ll get some detailed pics later down this week if I manage to get some free time, maybe you guys can help me figure out what could be wrong or how I can test the emitter.
