Didn't fit my DEWALT DW908 18-Volt flashlight
on December 8, 2012
Ok, so I can get it to stay on well enough to know that it works and it seems to be about as bright as the original bulb, though because it's a cooler white light it is effectively brighter to our eyes.
The problem is that the internal diameter where the threads are on this thing are about 1mm to large to screw on tightly to my flashlight, a DW908, which is listed as compatible with this LED conversion. The slightest tap and it would fall off. You can understand why that isn't preferred on a work light. I haven't done any DIY fixes on it but I imagine it could be made tighter with a lot of teflon tape on the threads. Or I could wrap electrical tape around the outside. Or maybe a little hot glue, it isn't like I need to take this off again any time soon and it doesn't have a focus feature so there's no reason for it to be able to turn.
To sum up, it should fit correctly and it doesn't and this is a quality control issue for DeWalt. I could return it and replace it with a new one but I'm pretty confident it would be exactly the same problem with all of them. I shouldn't have to be coming up with a DIY solution.
