Usage and Maintenance

  • Please don’t disassemble the sealed head, doing so can cause damage to the flashlight and will void the warranty.
  • High-power light should use battery with high current discharge capability; We suggest using high-performance Ni-MH rechargeable battery to increase the runtime of this high-intensity light.
  • Please take out the battery if the flashlight will not be used for a long time, or it may cause damage from electrolyte leakage or battery explosion.
  • The o-ring may be worn out after using for a long time. If it happens, please replace the o-ring with a new one to keep the light properly sealed against water.
  • Please clean the contacts of your light from time to time, especially if the light flickers or doesn’t light up. There may be several reasons for a flickering or not working light:
    Reason A: The battery needs replacing.
    Solution: Replace the battery (Please confirm the correct installation of anode and cathode).
    Reason B: The threads, PCB board contact or other contacts are dirty.
    Solution: Clean the contact points with an alcohol soaked cotton swab.
    If the above methods don’t work, please contact the distributors and refer to the warranty policy.


E12 is a high-intensity lighting device and capable of causing eye damage, avoid shining the light directly into the eyes.

    Very good pocket light for EDC. Has a general purpose beam, and light color is a clean white tint at all power levels. I had to spray the interior a couple of times with electric contact cleaner when first purchased. Appeared to have some metal flashing slivers and machine oil from manufacturing in the battery compartment.
