Most of the topics here are about new flashlights, but how about talking about longevity of your flashlights. I like to carry a twisty flashlight or a compact that puts out decent light. I have been disappointed by a couple of lights that I like, but don't work after a time of moderate use. I have a ITP A2EOS that I carried for about 6 months, just about perfect. Now when I twist it on, it only comes on sporadically. Sometimes I can get it to work by tapping on it, but it no longer is the dependable light I need. I also bought a CR123 light that changes light modes by the angle you hold it at. I loved that light for hikes/camping. Walking down the path at night and just need a tiny bit of light, point the light straight down for moonlight mode. Hear something in the surrounding trees, bring the light up to 90 degrees and it automatically brightens to full light. Worked great for a couple months but now it only comes on in moonlight mode and stays in moonlight mode. I got rid of it and don't know the brand anymore. Does anyone have success fixing these new fangled flashlights or do clever lights come at the expense of fixable light? Anyone have a flashlight for years that is drop dead dependable?
