    incredibly bright, bad switch

    posted by 325addict on 02/13/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    One manufacturer stops making the C2 Centurion, the other takes over in an nearly unaltered design... so I decided to order one and see for myself how good it is. First impression: built very nice, and it really throws TONS of light. After 10 minutes on max...
    Cons:
    Then, the drawback came: seemingly, the switch can't handle such a large current for 10 minutes: it was stuck in the ON positio...

    - won't power up WA1185 bulb - bottom of protection PCB may wear from springs

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