    OT: DOA XM-L flashlight.

    Sorry to post here, but I am seeking some opinions.

    I recieved a "Dead On Arrival" XM-L flashlight.

    Here's what I've done:

    Took it apart and inspected it. I did not pull up the rubber insulator over the star to look at the soldered connections. Nothing obvious so far

    Used a switch from another flashlight (XPG) and held it tight to the tube and head. The new light did not light up.

    I took the switch and tube from the XML light and was able to light up the XPG light, so the switch and battery are OK.

    Other than return the light, what should I do next?

    Nothing, just return it unless you will incur significant costs for whatever reason.

    I'm not sure if the consumer laws are as good in the states, but in the UK, if purchased from a UK retailer, you wouldn't incur any costs at all, including postage.
