    Default lumintop Tool AAA

    I have a black one - about 2 years old. It only works on high. It will not cycle between low medium high. Any suggestions appreciated. I also emailed them.
    Thanks.

    Have you tested other cells, including a different (fully charged) eneloop, as well as a (fresh) primary ? ....

    Never used an over-voltage cell (which could have damaged the driver) ? ....

    Any unusual drops or damage ?

    Since the tailcap has no active electronics, the magnetic tailcap isn't necessary. Just turn the light on with the tail cap, then twist the head back and forth to see if the modes work properly.

    Might be a driver failure.
