Question about Camping, Backpacking & Hiking
I have hade my Surefires for about 6 years and jusr recently had my exec defenders lamp replaced by a surefire dealer. I rested it near my bed where it has resided for sometime. I keep a g2 in my truck for emergencies. and both have fresh batteries in them I purchased 3 weeks ago. Yesterday I needed my g2 pretty badly and it turned on momentarily but then nothing and I thought maybe the bulb went out too. I went home and grabbed my defender and the same thing happened even though I had tested it at the shop. I then took my wifes from the truck and put fresh batteries in it and it turned on momentarily and then it crapped out too. Could the problem possibly be in the tail caps I had bought a second box of liths just in case and it seeme to be the same thing no power. That is a grand total of almost $300 down the tubes. These have been great partner lights for me and my wife but what gives????
Strange how all the units have failed. Sounds like more of a battery problem. Are you using brand name batteries like Surefire, Energizer etc? I had two boxes of Chinese import batteries and most of them failed. I put them into a number of items and had problems. I stopped using them and opted to pay the extra for 'real' batteries. A bad battery can do more harm that just going flat. If it releases too much power when turned on because it isn't properly regulated it can fry the bulb or electronics in those things so equiped. Having said that the big companies also have sets of 'lemmon' batches too.
If you have spare globes. First try some other batteries. If it doesn't work then use those batteries and the new globe.
