The light will accumulate a lot of heat when used on Turbo output level for extended periods. When high temperature ( >65 Deg ) is detected or after 3-minute working on Turbo, the light will automatically step down by a few lumens to reduce temperature.

Low-voltage Warning
When the voltage level drops below the preset level, the flashlight is programmed to downshift to a lower brightness
level until Eco output is reached. When this happens in Eco output mode, the flashlight blinks three times every five minutes to remind you to replace the batteries. To ensure normal use, the flashlight will not turn off automatically and will work till the batteries protection activate.

When the battery level gets too low, turning up the brightness will activate the battery protection, thus the light will switch off automatically. Take out the batteries and reload, the light will activate on Low, or replace batteries for normal use.

Battery Replacement
