Just received a Fenix UC35 1000 Lumen flashlight. Seems DOA, but would like to check w/ some folks more knowledgeable than I before I return it, to be sure I'm not overlooking something obvious. Here's what I know: - I did remove the thin, circular piece that separates the rear of the battery from the light's end cap connection, which prevents the light from turning on during shipping. - It would not turn on after unboxing, so figured battery was dead. Instructions say a full charge takes about 3.5 hours. I did that, and checked every half hour for function. No go. - Instructions say a light in the forward function button lights up red while charging, turning to green when charged. Each time I checked for function and plugged it back in (unit isn't supposed to function while charging), the red light would come on, then after about 20 seconds it would turn to green...which would indicate the battery is charged...but odd that it starts out red. - I checked the area where the forward part of the battery meets it's connection, and didn't find anything that would cause a separation. Sounds DOA to me, but thought I'd see if I was missing something before returning it or contacting Fenix. TIA!
