This is my first post after lurking for months. My brand new M40A is sitting on my desk in front of me right now. Having come from a Inova Tactical T1 LED (35 lumen) flashlight and assorted no name walmart models, I have these excellent reviews to blame my purchase on. WOW, I am impressed!
BTW - Yes I a grown man... grandfather 7 times over and given that wisdom... I looked into the beam.
The spots are beginning to clear. I should have no problems driving home.
From the review:Is Catapult V2 much brighter than M40A ?
Agreed.Nice light, I think it would be better if a tailswitch were added though.
No signs of a preflash on mine - either going from standby to low, or when tightening the battery tube to make contact when set to low.Does M40A preflash when turing on on low, kind of like Quark? I just received M30A and it does that (and I'm one of people that are annoyed by that ).
That's odd, sounds like maybe the ring magnet isn't detecting the final detent. Also wonder if you didn't just get the same light back? :thinking:Stayed on low, I essentially had two low beams, medium then high!! Sent the light back and the replacement ( I'm assuming) that arrived yesterday did the same thing right out of the box!!!
I wonder if this is common with Sunwayled lights?
FYI, SUNWAYLED was quite embarrassed when I pointed out the flashlight label misspelling. They asked me if it had shown up anywhere else in the documentation of this light or any of the other lights they sent me, and it hadn't. They promised to fix that one and work harder to prevent it from happening again.I love how these new sunway flashlight look and perform. But as a new brand, I think it needs more attention to details, like packaging and spelling. In the box it almost reads False light. These little cons gives the product a cheap feeling.
Hmmm, weird. Have you tried cleaning all the contact surfaces on the battery carrier and changing the batteries? I would have thought the problem was with the switch, but maybe something else is causing some sort of interference.Selfbuilt, I also thought that maybe I just got the same light back, but when I talked to the supplier they told me that the body was the same and they put a new head on it and that it worked fine. Kinda weird.
