This is a new thread and not posted with the said "L1 owners with issues" thread cause I've not determined if this is a true issue or in fact simply a non-issue.
Anyways, my L1 cree is the new batch, it runs on high with no problems or flickering. But when i use it on the momentary "high" beam mode I notice the LED goes through a lot of flickering as i depress the button in. Finally when i press VERY hard it goes to full power and will stay there only as long as i really mash the button in like hell. Let up just a little pressure and it starts to flicker and go dim. (kind of like an inbetween mode).
My A-2 and old L1 do not have that issue. I have tried switching tailcaps, batteries, cleaning all contacts, etc to no avail. What do you think?
