    Paul, The best way to prevent blowing your Tiger85 is to measure the open circuit voltage of the battery at the charging contacts. If it's 12.5Vdc or less you should be good to go, I've never blown a WA 1185 bulb when taking this precaution. A freshly charged pack is 12.8 Vdc hot off the...

    Jim I had my Tigerlight standing on end pointing towards the celing when at 8 mins the lens cracked. It was the old style UCL without the gasket. Before testing I cleaned the lens with window cleaner on both sides to remove any finger prints or dirt that could cause a hot spot. No big deal...

    Bad news I'm afraid. After charging my 9 cell pack for 12 Hours (and the pack reading 12.75 Vdc fresh off the charger) the 1185 bulb blew straight away!(There is a visable break in the filliment) I cleaned all the bulbs recieved as per instruction, and the bulbs glass envelope is clear not...
