•  The Switch - To our knowledge, the switches on our, or any other similar type of light saves little electrical energy at lower settings. The current drain on a battery is basically determined by the amount of amperage that a particular bulb draws during use. That is the reason for dual filament "High-Low" type bulb and the 5100 style head on all of our lights. This type bulb draws much less current from the battery when the low side is used than when the high side is used, no matter where the battery switch is set. To prevent excessive battery drain, we have installed a thermal shut-off on all of our lights. This shut-off automatically turns off your light when the bright or high side of the bulb is in use and the battery switch is set at any click other than the highest position. When this occurs, simply turn the battery switch back to the brightest setting, and then you can use the rotary switch on the headpiece to switch to the low side of the bulb. The shut-off does not affect the low side of the bulb, so it can be used at any desired brightness setting by using the battery switch. A quick look at the burn times on our lights as listed above should help you understand this feature. Although bothersome at times, the automatic shut-off will prevent the possibility of you having to walk out of the woods in the dark.

•  Charging - We use the automatic smart charger for our 20 Volt & 26 Volt Belt Lights. If you burn your light for 10 minutes or 10 hours all you have to do is plug your smart charger into your light and forget about it. The worry is over; you will not over charge your battery. It charges your battery to a full charge then switches to a trickle charge. Your light can be left on charge without damaging your battery. The amber L.E.D. shows that the charger is working; the green L.E.D. shows that your light is ready. *WARNING* DO NOT RUN YOUR BATTERY ALL THE WAY DOWN. PUT YOUR BATTERY ON CHARGE AFTER EACH USE.

For our our other lights, the charger should feel warm to the touch while charging. Charging your battery for 10 - 18 hours should bring your battery pack to full charge, depending on time used since last charge. Do not leave your battery on charge for more than 24 hours. If your light is not in use, charge it once a month. Avoid running battery completely down.

•  Problems - If your light is not working properly, call us before you try doing any major repairs. Most lights that are returned to us with problems were damaged due to owner/operator malfunction. Although we haven't experienced any water damage problems yet, please try to keep from totally submerging your light. Use proper bulbs. We will not be responsible for damage to your light if you do not follow these rules.

•  Warranty Information - If, in our judgment, the rules in Problems section above have not been followed, or a light has been subject to abuse or accidental damage, we may choose not to honor the warranty. However, if you will be honest with us when sending a light in for warranty work or other repairs, we will be as fair with you as possible. When a problem occurs with a light, we can usually determine what caused the problem without anyone telling us.

•  We accept no liability for property damage or personal injury caused by, or associated with the ownership or use of our products.

Thanks & Good Hunting
