    problem with xera light, flickering

    I have a brand new Xera flashlight and when its on all settings except the highest or flash (which aslo is highest) it flickers.
    It can't seem to handle putting out the lowest or medium lumens steadily. The highest setting is fine. At first i thought it was the battery/connection that was bad but the endcap is snug and the battery is the brand new panasonic that came with the light, and fully charged. Also sometimes on the medium and low settings it just reverts to like 25-50% of those lumens, on random, and I have to cycle it to get it back to real medium/low. Basically the light is only usable on the maximum setting.

    Whats wrong here? Is this normal or do I have a broken unit?
    It was quite expensive so I expect it to work well on all settings. Is it a dud?
    Rule #9 // If you are out riding in bad weather, it means you are a badass. Period.

    Sounds like a problem with the PWM circuit that controls the lower modes. Get in touch with Action LED and arrange to have it replaced.
