Olight M2R - does it have a real boost driver? (strange behaviour with 3.6 V battery)
09 Dec 2017 19:58 #2542
I've been using my new M2R for 2 weeks, today noticed that something in the side switch was not functioning properly, missing clicks, as the contact of the switch was faulty. Clicking very hard would be recognised, but I remember that after charging it for the first time it registered clicks without pushing too hard.
Also the light stopped at High, no more turbo. From High, a push on the tail didn't increase the output at all...
The battery was at 3,64 V.
I charged the battery and everything went back to normal, so I discharged to 3,5 V with my MC3000 and the faulty side switch came back, together with max output at High...
There must be something going on in the switch, and I also suspect that with a partially discharged battery the driver couldn't push to turbo?
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
