I pray I got a nice tint. Next week should arrived. I should stop buying ......
I recently received my GX25A3, but it is going back to Hong Kong for replacement. The flashlight flashes every 30 seconds, indicating low batteries, regardless of light level selected. I only use AA's. Eagletac's customer service is very good and maintains good communication. Looks like my light may be one of the earlier models where the low battery warning was set to 5.1V for 14500 mode. Anyways, I am sad having to go through a replacement, but happy about customer support from Eagletac.
I had emailed the online store where I purchased from and got radio silence. Not buying from them again.
I just got mine from Amazon. Is there any way from the hardware to tell if it's the old one or the new one? The box says it's the new one, but the manual says it's the old one, and the box came open. If there's no other way to tell, did the manuals of yours also say it's the old one (XM-L U2, 738 lumen)?
one of the very early replies to this thread with a picture of (presumably) the old model and it shows the white PCB. Now I notice that it was a hotlink to the Eagletac site, maybe they changed the picture since then?
If you where talking to the picture that you can still see. That's the new XM-L2 LED (you can see the silver/white/light gray pcb around the 'circle').
I'm not sure what the other picture's where. Probably not that usefull here.
And I don't recall that there was a gx25a3 with an xml LED.
flashlight newby, like led-flashlights!!
Also, tonight I noticed 2 things about this flashlight.
1) The lanyard quick attachment clip is too big for the GX25A3, because the GX25A3 is a little chubby flashlight the clip gets on your way when you are grabbing the flashlight, kind of uncomfortable, also when using the lanyard is kind of hard to fits the flashlight inside the holster.
2) Maybe is because of the size of my hands but I found the tailcap with rear switch a little hard to press, is easier for me using the index finger than the thumb to press the rear switch. Maybe I need to get use to or maybe I will just chance to the flat tailcap and use the front switch.
Other than that let me tell you that this flashlight is fantastic...excellent thrower, it was just a 1 hour night hike but I got impress with the power. However a better test will be this weekend when I use this flashlight at north in a 3 days canoeing trip where is not electricity at all. Can't wait.
