On a very slightly used 2AA LED minimag, the light only comes on for a split second at a certain point in the switch rotation. Multiple sets of new batteries make no difference.

LED Flashlight Battery Drain Problem


This particular flashlight uses a microchip that consumes the power of the batteries, whether in use or not. Loosen the case to where the batteries go in, so there is no contact with polarity. Or just take the batteries out completely and replace them for actual use. GGBMDB

I have a Garrity LED tuflight flashlight with 3 AAA batteries. I recently put new batteries in (the others were weak but not dead). Now I can't get it to work. I am not sure if I am not loading it all right. The batteries are in the battery case correctly but I don't know the order of the items. Battery case and then a little round thing with a spring on one side & metal on the other side. Thanks in advance.


You should load the spring/metal piece in first with the spring facing out. then the batteries.

I bought a vector 20 million power series sport/spot light and based my purchase on reviewsand company reputation. After receiving the light in the mail I followed the instructions charging it for the proper length of time then tried the light at night in a wooded area near my home. First impressions were anything but favorable, the light was poorly designed ergonomicallythe on-off switches were positioned to put it bluntly in a very stupid place making it awkward to turn off and on. I was ok with the lights size and weight it was just the way it was designed that made its size and weight a detriment to ease of use. Next after a several day full and complete charge I put the light in the trunk of my car to be ready for use on a weekend camping trip. When we arrived at the campsite and began setting up I got the vector out with high expectation of it lighting up my area so I could set up my tent so I set it up turned it on and at first thought wow this is great adjusted the stand started setting up camp when the brand new VECTOR 20 million candle power light slowly started to dim out all to my chagrin of course. within minutes it was dead as a doornail. Almost a HUNDRED dollars for a flashlight and my old trusty 1 million candle power DORCEY spotlight purchased from Harbor Freight that fortunately was in the trunk of my car came to the rescue.A cheap 10 dollar spotlight not only was brighter but it lasted the entire time it took to set up camp. After the weekend was over and I was back at home I emailed the vector company and to be honest was treated with a cross between sarcasism and indifference when I expressed my concerns. I was more than a little surprised and caught completely off guard so much so I allowed myself to be dismissed when I asked if I could trade in y brand new spotlight on one of equal or the one I was interested in trading on was a fair bit more expensive. My less than polite or helpful customer service represenative told me that they do not do that and in so much words he made it clear that I was stuck with the one I have and that it is clearly written in the ad that it is a large floodlight,. I gave up figured I had been stuck with the floodlight and swallowed my pride after writing a less than favorable review on the floodlight. I just had to write again I just took the light out to look at a car I had trouble with today turned it on and thought hey this is working ok but within 15 minutes the light dimmed very quickly till it was stone dead and I could not see anything. So out of sheer frustration I am writing this letter to express my feelings once more. Again I broke out my 10 dollar dorcey floodlight that had been hanging on a hook not plugged in and charging just hanging took it outside and it not only lit up my car but lasted the entire time and was still going strong when I finished brought it in hung it up and put the charger on it. So after this long winded explanation about one of your products it comes down to "I WOULD NEVER AGAIN BUY ANY VECTOR PRODUCTS NOR RECOMMEND THEM TO ANYONE!" I am stuck with this lemon I am trying to decide what the best job could be for this floodlight and all I could think of is that it would work well as a corner weight on the tarpaulin that I have covering my car. Sincerely, James R. Clement. A dissatisfied customer .


This light has'nt really like others much that can go wrong. I'm sorry to hear you had so many problems. I have this light and recieved it second hand, without an owners manual. I went to VectorMfg.com which redirected me to Black & Deckers web site. I there downloaded an owners manual. If I would'nt have done that I may have also posted many of the questions reguarding this light. There are many inportant things to know before use and continued use. The bulb and battery are replacable. Hope this helps! Matthew

Flashlight won't turn off


It sounds like the on/off switch is defective. Unscrew the battery cap to keep the light from draining the batteries.

Mini Maglite LED not staying on


I found this site because I too have a pile of these with that problem. I have had maglites since the time when they weren't available to the general public and have always liked them. These new LED lights are great for the light/size ratio and I was very sorry to see this product perform so poorly. After reading the comments here I went to the Maglite site and found some troubleshooting tips. Believe it or not I fixed the one in my hand and can't wait to go fix the others. They really need to spell out on the package how the LED unit works when the batteries get low. Apparantly when they do get low the unit won't dim, it will completely shut off. You turn it off and then back on again and it flashes on but then stays off. According to the troubleshooting there is a bit of electonics in this unit that will shut the unit off if the battery voltage falls below a certain threshold. This appears exactly like a poor contact problem. I thought I had try battery replacement on some of my units in the past. The toubleshooting section does also cover other possible issues and shows how to try to fix them - not a bad document. Here is the link - good luck - I hope they stay in business. I think they need to address this issue somehow or else they will silently loose their market share. http://www.maglite.com/pdf/CustServ/Mini%20Maglite%20LED%20FAQ5222007805552.pdf
