Here is what I came up with. Took me about 3 minutes. The wrap solved my problem, it's no longer slick at all.I hope you'll post your opinion of how well that works for you after application / testing, and if you're happy with the results, perhaps what specific tape you used. Thanx!
Also find it much more comfortable to hold because I wrapped it about 3 times, making the diameter of the light body a bit bigger.
The only thing I'd do differently then this time is not leaving any space between wraps.
If you go over the wrap and make it tight, with every wrap maybe 50% of tape on tape and 50% off (if that makes sense) so the tape won't have any edges as a weak point.
You can see in the picture on my last wrap I left some spaces between the wrap as I went around the body of the light. That opens the door to potential problems such as the tape peeling from both sides, whereas if you went over the tape every wrap 50/50 your covering the tape with more tape and not leaving the sides of the tape exposed so would make it much more durable (think baseball bat wrap)
I went ahead and walked around and tried the light out in multiple holds and man… it's perfect.
I even went as far as to wet my hand and grab the light without drying my hand to simulate using it in the rain / around water…. and the tape seemed to grip my hand even better when wet!…
Needless to say for $4 roll of tape I am not upset… even if this stuff wore out after a couple months … I have enough tape to rewrap the light at least 3-4 more times…
With that said, the only thing to wait and see on is the durability of the tape. I used this basic bat tape for now.
However if this doesn't end up working out for whatever reason, the next tape I'll be buying is self-fusing rubber/silicone grip tape…
Hopefully this tape will hold up over time.
But if anybody wants to correct the slipping issue for a cheap and easy fix I'd say this tape would be the answer… the only thing I don't like about it is the grip tape has a unique smell that I don't necessarily care for.
Ordinarily I wouldn't be bothering to correct the issue, but this light's amazing and absolutely love the form factor / output along with the UI.
So, this is my attempt at correcting the one thing I didn't like about the light. (Slippery finish)
The grip wi the this tape isn't SUPER grippy, but the light doesn't feel like it's slipping in my hand at all or nearly as much as it was without it.
With that said I think the rubber/silicon grip tape would probably be more grippy. - might give that a try in the future if this tape needs to come off for any reason in the future. - but for now I'm happy with how this came out.
