I am unsure if I can use this on my fenix lights. I have some Dupont Teflon bearing grease (DTBG). Has anyone used this? It is 100% teflon grease. I am not sure if this would hurt my lights. TIA

Just a guess. It's probably non-conductive so you wouldn't want to use on any light where electricity has to flow through the threads (e.g. variable Fenix L1/2 T's and such). On some other lights (e.g. the Civictor V1), the current flows from the end of the body to the PCB in which it would be OK for the threads to be insulated.

You probably also would wouldn't want it to be spread around inside your light and interfere with other contact surfaces - which dry lubricants like graphite and little loose teflon balls tend to do.
