Havent posted here in forever. Got a basics question. My Jetbeam Mini-1 usb keychain light won't turn OFF. Last weekend, I used it and when i unscrewed to turn it off, it wouldnt turn off. I kept unscrewing until the cap came off. Whenever i try to screw it back on the light goes on and wont turn off...have you guys heard this one before? Is this just 'get a new light?' answer?

Im looking for a pocket clip for my Surefire 9Z instead of the lanyard and also a clip for my old school E2E i put a Q5 LED [email protected] Conversion head onto. I dont know how or where to mount a new clip for the E2E. It used to be screwed into original head, new conversion doesnt offer option. Is there anything anyone has in mind for a rear tailcap slip in pocket clip?

Any ideas would help, been searching the web too long with no results.

What is the best way to trouble shoot a converted maglite. When the light doesn't come on and the lights at the switch cycle through and stop on blue.

i have a question regarding cleaning my flashlight after leaked battery inside my Fenix E05. I pulled out the spring (far end of tube for battery contact) and cleaned it, but after putting in a new battery, the flashlight will not turn on. Under the spring, there might be some left over battery stuff. Is that affecting the non-power? How would I clean the tube further, how would I scrape inside a tube? Is it worth trying to figure out how to clean it further or just throw it away?
thanks.

Thank you for the write up. I’ve been a long time flashlight junkie but kind of new to the full customs and moding

I spilled xylene on my mecarmy pt16 lens. I was wondering if anyone knew how to clear it back up? It got completely fogged over and the beam is much weaker now.
