I understand defective products get out, but a torch is important. It's not when I am on an oil rig in Malaysia that I want to realize the thing is ittermittently crapping out.
For 500eur, I expect a 'professional' product has had burn in time. We are talking about a 500eur flashlight, right :-)
Compared to the Sola, there are some big things missing, like no way to know if the battery in your light is charged, zero feedback. Also, the charger, when empty or no connect, is green, which means 'good'. Couple that with the issue where the batts are not connecting, and this is a huge fail imo.
I am sorry if my review sounded harsh, but seriously, check out this photo of the charger (), how is it 'professional' to have a bare PCB and solder points on the charger for a marine device?
I just checked, mine takes a full press fast off and on to cycle. I know that seems not a big deal, but at night, someone turning their torch on and off 5 times is not normal, they seem in need of attention.
