    You need to first remove the rubber washer, if you gave some long needle noose pliers to grab the washer they work the best, or you can use a long pick careful not to rip it. Don’t pull up on the center piston it’s easy to miss it up you will end up with only high if you pull to hard on the center piston ( Learned the hard way). Once you remove the washer the LE just fall out. Nothing is screwed in just pressure from the rubber washer holds it in.

    I tried emailing Walter some time ago never heard back from him.

    Also, with such a great product, do you know why the Lumencraft member(s) don't visit CPF? I think it would reassure people who are considering purchasing the new model they list on their website.

    I had the same issue as others here - doesn't get much brighter than 3-5 lumens or so. The contact form on the official website is broken, and I couldn't get the wholesale form to work, so here I am.

    I'm going to try that and see if my light works better by tomorrow.

    EDIT: That did the trick - back to full output.
