Has anyone experienced something similar?

I gave a friend E2L AA a few years ago and today he sent me this picture. The reason for this is still unknown, he is in another city.

There's pressure inside the body of the light, probably from a battery venting. I would definitely throw out the batteries ASAP to prevent damage or further pressure buildup.

Thank you, you're right, a friend wrote to me a couple of minutes ago - he took out the batteries and the button was blown away, now it looks like a used condom (I won't post it, it's too scary).

It was Duracell AA, as he says, they were a fresh release.

I dug in the drawer and found rubber caps, they look suitable for E1B, so they can also be suitable for E2L

Looks like gases from the batteries escaped and “Ballooned the rubber

I use one all the time with an MN01 and a beam diffuser. Works great on two NIMH rechargeables or alkaleeks. Makes a great reading light at night, or bathroom light. It's just a nice soft light all around for nighttime stuff when you don't need tons of lumens.
