- If the flashlight does not turn on or works intermittently:
- Ensure the tail cap is completely screwed in until you cannot turn it anymore. The flashlight will only power on when the tail cap is completely tightened.
Ensure the batteries are inserted correctly according to the polarity (-, +) marked on the battery holder.
Make sure the battery holder is inserted back into the flashlight with the positive (+) end first.
- Replace the batteries.
- Inspect and clean any corrosion from the springs and battery contacts.
If the flashlight flickers or changes modes automatically:
Make sure the tail cap is twisted on tightly.
If the light appears dim or faded:
Replace the batteries.
If the problem persists, possible LED Failure. Contact GearLight for a replacement.
Inspect the flashlight monthly and carefully remove any damaged batteries and clean any corrosion. If the flashlight is used less than once a month, remove the batteries between uses. Lubricate all threads and rubber O-rings with petroleum jelly twice yearly.
