  • High driver failure rate

    posted by Culverjoe on 12/25/2010

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    Good flood
    Much brighter than R2
    the spot is not very small, so it is a good work light, not blinding in one spot, and dull all around.

    Cons:

    out of Six I have bought, two have completely failed (the drivers) and two more are extremely sensitive to batteries that aren't fully charged. The drivers cut out after the batteries get down to 3.25V.
    Will NOT buy anymore.
    also, the oring in the tail cap is undersized, and it is not water proof.

    OtherThoughts:

    I am sticking with R2s. the drivers in these are of extremely low quality and high failure rate.

    Bottomline:

    after using six of these for three months, two completely died, and two flicker sometimes.
