  • battery is dud

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Nice bright light. Reasonable finish quality.

    Cons:

    Smaller rubber band supplied snapped after 2 days; this was my preferred one since it held the light nice and tight.

    Battery pack failed to charge, ever. I can't use this lamp at the moment until I get new batteries or fix the pack supplied with this. It appears as if a protect circuit is being tripped during charge; pack measures open circuit when probed. Its possible to run the lamp only for a couple of seconds before it cuts out.

    2S2P arrangement of cells seems stupid to me, since there is no balancing of charge at all, especially with 'dumb' charger provided.

    OtherThoughts:

    Disappointing to only get 2 days use before having to service this brand new product to get it working.

    Bottomline:

    Great lamp let down by crappy battery pack.
