At least this is how I made it better.
First off these are comprised of very few parts and its all solid state electronics, so other than the switch or a soldering point, there is very little that can go wrong with it... at least I thought.
When mine arrived it did not work, so whats a country boy to do but take it apart and see why.
In summary, its a design flaw with the body/housing, but it was fixable for me.
Without going into all the troubleshooting and circuit testing I did, I'll just give you the summary. The problem with mine was the curve of the the body/housing was causing the circuit board holding the LED lights to curve. This curve was causing a short of some kind. Tested it by taking it apart, putting the batteries back in, holding the battery cover with my one hand, and clicking the switch with the other hand. Both modes, constant light and strobe light, worked perfectly.
What I ended up doing, after trying a couple hand files, was to use my dremel tool with an abrasive cut-off blade to remove about half of plastic body/housing thickness only at the circuit board area, and only on the bottom half of the body/housing (the part without the hat clips).
What this did was decrease the amount of curviture of the led panel circuit board, thus decreased the pressure on the citcuit board the curve provided. Put it back together and BAM... a flawlessly working LED hat light for a couple bucks and little of my time.
I am making absolutely no recommendations for how anyone is to go about fixing their non-working and intemittently working LED hat light. Just sharing my experience and how I got mine to work.Read more ›
So, with absolutely no idea how this would turn out - I was happily surprised when it arrived and worked! Yay! And with 5 LED's, it may not be the brightest light in the world, but it gets the job done. And is actually quite light. It fits under my husbands cap, it isn't loose, it doesn't slip or fall off, it's just there, hanging out like it's supposed to be.
So, for a $2 - or less, I think, product, this is actually a very neat little light - it works well - it does what it's supposed to, and I'm happy.
This can work, but it will take some ingenuity to develop your own alternate method of securing it to your hat. Even then, the entire housing just seems to be made of substandard brittle plastic, probably the cheapest plastic that can be manufactured and still hold its form...for a while before it cracks and disintegrates into pieces.
It's a shame really... It could have been a contender!

It took a while to recieve this product as it was shipped from China. I don't mind that but one of the clips snapped off inside the bag. Read morePublished 1 month ago by pStove
These things are great when we are camping. Everyone has one and we just attach them to our hats and no one gets lost. I also put a couple of them in our emergency backpacks. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Marsha
