    Default Eagletac D25A2 lockout?

    I own a Eagletac D25A2 neutral white- the 419-lumen version,which I love.

    The only big flaw is there doesn't seem to be a way to lock out the light.
    Is there a trick to getting the light to lock out,so that it doesn't accidently turn on and drain the batteries?

    Thankfully,I'm using Panasonic Eneloop AA batteries(2100 MaH version).

    I just untwist the top so there is no battery connection. This applies to many lights to prevent parasitic drain for long time storage.

    I dont think the light has any parasitic drain, so the ony way to drain the batteries is to press the switch to turn the light on.

    I have a different eagletac, D25A Ti, the button is very very difficult to turn on accidentally.. first the button is flush, second it requires deep and deliberate pressure to activate the switch..

    is your switch different, somehow easy to turn on?

    Maybe you have the Tactical model.. with momentary on?

    "D25A2 Tactical

    This D25 Tactical series offers more responsive and quicker control compared to the D25 Clicky series. It features tactical forward clicky switch"


    If so, try to buy a normal reverse clicky, and swap it out,
    if you dont need Tactical momentary...

    also curious
    how are you carrying the light, that allows or creates a situation that presses the button?

    I doubt (unfortunately) there's a practical way to 'lock out' the light. I use several D25 family lights, but don't have experience with the 'A2' specifically.

    When you experience and notice this and remove the light from your pocket to turn it off, does the switch 'click' and feel normal and turn the light off as expected when you actuate the switch?

    How long have you had / been using the light, and have you experienced this problem since the beginning? If so, could you have an out-of-spec switch with too low an actuation pressure or other issue, or if not, could it possibly be an 'issue' of some sort with the switch that has developed over time?
