I bought this light in September of 2016 and I dropped it for the last time a few days from this post and I was happy up until this point cause I dropped it from my pocket and it quit working and keep in mind I carried back up battery because I used it so much just wish they could make the light atleast 2meter drop resistant because I'm a little over 6feet tall and a meter is half that so I dropped it from max level every time

      Warranty will be contacting you to see what’s going on. It might be in TAC mode, meaning only strobe and Turbo are enabled.
