Thread: How does the Eagletac D25A/C change mode groups?

    Default How does the Eagletac D25A/C change mode groups?

    So tighten to get turbo/strobe and loosen to get the other three+blinky. My D25C Ti works fine but the D25A Ti doesn't go turbo unless it's excessively tight or I bend the head slightly in a certain direction. Before sending it back to LJ for DOA return (waiting for answer for return postage), I'd like to see if I can tweak it.

    Had an issue with reg d25c2 which would only go on turbo, I think it may have been too much lube on the threads, after i cleaned everything and relubed it has been working.

    Thanks. It defaults to low so how would it be locked on turbo (full tight)? I'm trying to understand that part...

    well it was not defaulting to low, if you check the thread on last page http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/...-clickys/page5 another guy had a similar problem, both our lights decided to start working after some use and cleaning

    Well, after cleaning (didn't fix it) and mucking around with the pill position, it now goes into turbo. In a nutshell I pushed hard on the opposite side I need to bend the head in order to engage turbo. Contemplating sending it back if it goes wonky again in the next few days...

    It sounds like the head is bottoming out against the body before the body makes contact with copper circuit ring on the Pill. Does the gap between the head and body completely disappear when you screw it all the way in?

    What battery are you using? Extra long batteries could be a problem as well. Some 14500s are too long. If that gap is bigger with the battery in than no battery at all, its the battery. If its doing it with an standard alkaline or eneloop its a tolerance issue with the light.

    I'd say send it back, unless its an unsupported battery issue.

    I'm using the standard GP alkaline it comes with. Eneloops are a no go either but it works now though after my futzing around.
