Hi

My McGizmo Haiku with HIVE driver blinks whenever I half press or full press

It is normal?

I thought it never blinks

Using Energizer CR123a battery

Try checking the pill in the head and see if it's loose. If so, tightening it up. If that's secure, it could also be the tail switch is loose. Take off the o-ring that secures the tail cap. Then take the cap off. You'll see the actual McClicky switch. See if that's loose and if so tighten it up. If it still flickers then it could be a faulty switch or something else. A faulty switch is easy to replace. You can buy a replacement switch from many different sources but I suppose if it gets down to that, you may just want to contact Don for next steps.

Thanks for the reply.
I have checked both and both were already tightened up

Yes, I think he took an honorable bow out.

I am not on FB, tho I believe Don is or use to be active on that forum. If you need to get ahold of him, that's going to be your best place to look.

Mine will blink with a low cr123a. It could also be set to li-ion and think you're running a li-ion below the threshold… hopefully you sort it out :)
