  • Regularly inspect body o-rings for debris or damage. Any debris should be removed before assembly. Damaged o-rings should be replaced immediately. O-rings should be coated with a light sheen of silicone grease.
  • After twisting to de-activate the light, turn an additional 1/4 turn to prevent the light from inadvertently powering on due to bumping or pressure. The additional 1/4 turn after the light has de-activated will not pose a flooding risk.
  • NOTE: Continuing to twist the body of the light away from the head past the additional 1/4 turn can result in flooding.
  • Universal Smart Charger factory setting is 1.2A. The battery will charge on the 0.6A setting, but will charge at a slower rate.
