I guess you were right about cheap lights or I just got really unlucky with the 35w HID. I had it charging, put the battery in and it started to warm up, then all of a sidden it started strobing to the point where I thought it was one of its modes. The stobing stopped and then the light wouldnt turn on at all. Then I inspected the battery out and no lights on the battery at all no matter what i press. 20 Minutes of usage and now I have to maybe ship this thing back to China. I did use Paypal though.
