    Default Cheers to Okluma

    Recently, I purchased a secondhand aluminum DC1 with H17f driver. Got it, popped a cell in it, and have been using the heck out of it. A week or so ago, it started acting up. Switching multiple levels, turned itself on when I picked it up, etc. I did the usual: changed battery, cleaned the threads, changed out the McClicky switch. No change. Digging deeper, I realize the board with positive spring has come loose from the LE can, and is just being held by the wires. A quick message or two with Team Okluma, and it's on it's way back to Oklahoma for a checkup. I got a call today from Jeff, asking who did the driver mod as it wasn't theirs. I had no idea, as I wasn't the original owner and that wasn't disclosed when I bought it. He went into some detail as to how he knew it wasn't them who did it, and said that they would take care of it and send it back my way in a day or two. I asked to pay for the repairs, and was told no, they would cover it. This, folks, is why my current Okluma won't be my last. Kudos! :

    Haha! Can’t possibly be as bad as me when I tried to put a few Convoy S2+ together. I still have ‘em in my junk drawer but they’re wonky asf.

    That was just a single LED too...I unscrewed the pill of my Okluma when it started acting up and was completely lost. Jeff told me he had to take the whole engine on mine apart and install some sorta ground wire.

    Jeff is the best. I have a TinyDC I got from the very first run of 5 and he did some repairs/upgrades on it for me after he had improved on his design. I also had him build me a LE for my Mac Ti Tri EDC and it turned out perfect. He even did a little machining on the inside of the head where no one would ever even see the difference to make the lens and o-ring seat and seal better. Top tier service always! I had intended to send him a thank you email but kinda lost track of time, so I hope he sees this post tacked onto S24’s thread!
