When my E2d. Ed defender. 200 lumens flash light is turn on it act like an strob light how to stop it or is it a weak batteries


No, that is a 'feature'. It is for signalling or blinding an attacker.

This is the instructions for the 500 lumen version but it will be the same. Nice light, I run Fenix Tactical. Strobe is usually gained by switching on and then half depressing the button and holding. If this doesn't work, contact Surefire direct.

The E2D LED DefenderĀ® Ultra is a compact 500-lumen flashlight featuring dual-output capability and self-defense enhancements. Utilizing a virtually indestructible high-performance LED and a Total Internal Reflection (TIR) lens, the E2DL Ultra is activated with a pushbutton tailcap click switch that also selects output levels: press or click once for a high-intensity 500-lumen white-light beam-ten times the light needed to overwhelm the night-adapted vision of an aggressor. Return to off and press or click again within two seconds for a 5-lumen ultra-long runtime low beam that's suitable for navigating at night or performing close-up tasks for hours. The Defender's crenellated Strike BezelĀ® provides further defensive options should the need arise. Slender and powerful, the E2DL Ultra is an ideal everyday-carry light.

I have a coleman companion flashlight/lantern and need to disassemble it for battery replacement. i can`t fiqure out how.


Really? Put the flashlight down and slowly step away from it and if that doesn't work threaten it with a hammer?
Seriously did you read the package directions? The pointy end with the gray ring is the end most likely screws off to put the AA batteries in.

My AA Mini Maglite needed a new bulb, and I am upgrading with a 3 white LEDs and a tail cap switch ... but now nothing I try can get the torch to work. Can you possibly, help, please?


You've introduced two variables to your flashlight, and each needs to be tested independently. It's possible that one--or both--isn't working properly. It's equally possible that one or both of these replacement parts isn't perfectly meshing with the conductive areas of the maglite body, meaning that they're not completing the basic circuit needed to power the light.

The best way to test your tailcap switch is either to try it with another maglite or test its continuity with a multi-tester. With the tester, you should be able to toggle between readings of infinite resistance (switch off, no circuit) and little or no resistance (switch turned on). If you're stuck at infinite resistance, there's a problem with the switch.

You could test the LED insert by using test clips to touch power to the module to see whether it will light up.

My guess is that the components are probably good, but that somewhere along the line, there's a break in the basic circuit. My leading suspect would be the connection from the LED module to the negative (flashlight body) side. It could be that the module is slightly out of round and it's simply not making contact. It could be that the finish of the maglite is acting as an insulator. However, I would recommend deferring this analysis until you've confirmed that each component works fine.

Good luck!

How do you open the flashlight to replace the battery?


You have to unscrew the end tailcap. Remember, unscrew it counter clockwise, and when replacing the batteries keep in mind the polarity.

I just bought the coleman Max mult-colored headlamp and i cant figure out how to put the three AAA batteries in


In the headstrap is a plastic 'key' that you use to remove the battery cover (opposite side of the headlamp from the switch). Once you remove the cover, you can shake the headlamp to let the battery cartridge slide out of the headlamp.
Pay close attention to which way the batteries go in--if you put a battery in the wrong way you can easily bend the springs inside!

Flashlight only works when end cap is partially on. Will not work when cap is fully screwed in. New batteries installed.


Some models of the famous MagLite use this 'feature' as the on-off switch. I have several such myself.
