    Default Dead LIghts ?

    i went through my lights an found 4 that dont work anymore. nothing special, just a few AAA/AA. they dont apear to be corroded or anything. anything else i need to check? any reason why they just die? the Olight i3eos and Fenix E11 were hardly used.

    Did they have alkaline cells inside ?

    All contact surfaces and threads have been cleaned ?

    Fully charged fresh cells tried ?

    Switches and connections all secure and tight ?

    -stored with no batteries
    -tried fresh batteries (i tested to make sure they were good)
    -i havent cleaned any contacts
    -switches and connections are tight


    ill go clean the contacts now and see if that helps.

    For the fenix e11, try to bypass the tail switch by using a wire connecting the negative of a battery to the head and see if it lights up. From what i know, the e11 switch is not too reliable especially if momentary on is used a lot.
