when the battery is very low, and the light is on L3(0.06lm), it would cut off 1 sec after i turn it on. but if i double click it before it turns off itself, it would go up to L2(.34lm), and it would stay on. strange behaviour
because I don't have the patience to read all this thread, can someone tell me
some differences between this headlamp and the h52fw.
i have looked at the IS site and I see that they are very similar...
so am I missing something here?

It shuts off on L1 but if you double click into the lower mode, it stays on, and that would make sense. L1 will always be one of the two modes, you cannot change that I am aware of, while L2 can be programmed to levels of your choosing.
You are right, it should be L1(2.7 lm) instead of L2 in my post.
I set the double click between L1 and L3. It would turn itself off on L3, but stay on on L1, (then when the power get too low it would start to blink, rather than a shut off)

Its quite possible the light starts acting squirrely when your down to the point of loosing some low modes, and a lot of that could be the battery itself. But can you really be sure what modes your clicking between when the light has stepped down automatically? I know I tend to forget when the light dims and I instinctively double click thinking I am in a lower mode, only to discover the brightness did not change, then double click again and no change, then I lost what mode I was in. And I'm not really even sure if the ZL stays in your programmed modes anyhow when it starts ramping down?
does anyone else's button sometimes swell up? normally the click is very direct and.. decisive.
lately i sometime find it, like there's air under the rubber, i have to press down first before i hit the click.
maybe it's the sudden change of temp?
Try the old HDS Clicky trick and hold the button down before and while you're screwing down the tailcap. It may be just enough to give it some click back.
