Stopped working -- minor issue fixed by me
on May 20, 2013
I have three of these and they are great. I live on a larger property (several acres) and I keep one in my pocket at night in case I have to go out to see what the dog is barking at or whatever. The oldest one is around a year old. I use NiMH batteries. I did encounter one problem on the oldest unit. It stopped working and I was really bummed, but then I found that it is a common issue with a simple fix. The threaded insert inside the tail cap comes loose. You can fix it by screwing it back in. Note that the threads are reversed for the insert, so you have to screw it in the opposite direction of normal to tighten it down. My main reason writing this review is to share that piece of information.
