Does anyone know if the R123 batteries can be charged safely in the nano charger (such as the one that came with the Raw), as my power supply popped as soon as I plugged the £$%@#&$+ thing in /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mecry.gif
my two Lion Cubs 027/100 black and 066/100 black arrived. Both LCs were sealed.
Unfortunately, the LC 027/100 black is faulty. The PCB is loose. The PCB is pushed by the battery to the lens.
Through this the switch doesn't work. Without battery the switch “works”. One hears clearly clicking.
After insert the battery the lamp cannot be used. Either flashes the lamp or it has full brightness.
Turning off isn't possible.
In addition, it is considerably darker than the other LC. However, this is independent of the defect.
I am very much disappointed.
The LC 066/100 black is for a friend. This lamp is all right.
Now I waited for a long time for my LC, and she is defective.
Can you first deliver the middle part with electronics to me?
I return my part at the same time.
the charger that came with MY RAW is an R123 charger.. had some donut magnets to make the CR2 long enough to charge and i've charged R123s in it fine.. it's a nice slow charge for the bigger batteries.. 150ma i've heard but never measured.. it does take numerous hours and a full charge is not when the light first turns green.. if i leave it on over night they come off like 4.15V which is perfect for my tastes.
I apologize for the negative experience. Rest assured all Cubs were tested - with battery in place - before being shipped to Tactical Warehouse, who subsequently shipped the international-bound lights to yet a third party for individual foreign shipping.
It sounds as though the board is out of position and when pushed up *into* position by the battery, the switch is coming into partial contact with the internal wall of the control module housing. This is not a fault with the circuit.
Please ship the light back to me, at my expense, for examination and servicing. I will reposition the board so as to remain in place regardless and ensure all is working once again before returning the Cub to you, also at my expense.
Again I am sorry this happened. Next time feel free to contact me directly so I can take care of any issues more quickly. You may reply to this via e-mail (in my profile) to gain my attention sooner, as there is another flashlight forum that I have been frequenting (and helping to administrate) more than CPF lately, and thus I may not see your publicly posted complaint.
Wanted to ask if somebody else gor their light with a scratch along the upper part of the batt. compartment near the joint with the body?
Dan said that all the LC have this scratch, is it really so?
The scratch is not very deep - you don't see the aluminium, but it is visible...
i was suprised with this light yesterday had no idea it was comeing 2 very kind cpfers sent it.all i can say is wow what a great light it is now my new edc.i love all my bulk lights but do to the size of this one its is better for a edc.the beam is also more usefull.i do love throw but when it comes to a edc i belive this has more of a usefull beam but still has more throw then any othger light this size i know of.it is a great light a around i love the way it looks to.the ergernomets are very nataul to me the butten seems to fall where it need to for me any way.runtime i havnet checked yet but if it even has 10 minutes on high ill be sold caus eit is wicked bright and a very good tint like we are acustmeed to on all bulk lights. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/buttrock.gif
