Sadly I have to announce an injury to a colleague tonight. I had my Hound Dog in my jacket pocket and somehow managed to bump the switch on. It must have sat there for a long time because I didn’t notice until I out my hand in my pocket and felt the heat. It ran the batteries down completely and the heat actually melted and warped the plastic lens. I’m hoping the LED wasn’t damaged
Doubtful any other damage other than the lens - remove the lens and test the light. I didn't melt mine but replaced it with a 43.41mm ULC lens.
