I recently purchased my first Peak Logan from Oveready and have been trying it out over the past week. I have the long, stainless steel 123 body with momentary, the Nichia 219 emitter, and generation 2 pill.
Here is the problem:
If I use a CR123 primary, it works fine when I twist the bezel and it ramps up fairly smoothly. But using the momentary switch is very difficult. In fact, I can try pressing the momentary switch as hard as possible, but I can't ever reach maximum output. But with an AW IMR16340 cell, using the momentary switch is not a problem.
After much experimenting and looking at the light's components, here is where I think the problem is...
The negative contact on an IMR cell is nearly flush with the sides, but CR123 cells are not flush and the negative contact is slightly recessed. Becaused it's recessed, it prevents the full compression of the QTC pill. It would seem that if the hexagonal piece of metal in the QTC pill was slightly taller, it would solve the problem.
Have others on here had the same experience? If my explanation wasn't real clear, I can try posting pictures or video tomorrow.
