IMPORTANT..NO RETAIL PACKAGING ALERT!
Environmental waste packaging is a major problem, we no longer provide or ship our goods with retail packaging unless stated otherwise.
We have been using for several years now Royal Mail approved industry standard 'Jiffy' type bag packaging where appropriate.
Thank you for your understanding in this very important matter that affects us all
Operating instructions for Flash lights, Headlights and Battery charger. To keep waste to a minimum, we do not include paper instructions. Now they are always available to you at the bottom of all of our listings as a permanent reminder.
.All flashlights we sell either have a ‘tail cap’ on/off push switch or a conventional push button on the actual barrel. Exception! If you have purchased a Ultrafire C6 CREE Q5 full recharge model, the functions and charging port is on the actual barrel, but powering on and off is the same as described below
To turn light on, unscrew (in all models) the tail cap in a ‘anti clockwise’ direction.Place into barrel positive node + first up to head of the light whatever the flash light battery requirements are for this model which you can find in the listing details, or use the ones supplied by us if you purchased batteries as well.
Replace rear tail cap, do NOT over tighten threads. In all models to turn on, press down rubber cap button until it clicks on, to turn off, push down again until it clicks .If you have a model with multi-function modes i.e. strobe, SOS etc., once you have switched on, all you need do is GENTLY push the tail cap button to cycle through modes.
LED Headlights using either 1 X 18650 3.7v battery or 3 X Triple A battery model. Both battery compartments have a simple rubber cover and require little effort to open. Place either the single 18650 battery in with the + pointing to + printed clearly inside case or, if you have AAA models, follow same + to + terminals. Replace lid, and check all tight. To operate head light, gently press down the small steel button found on top of the actual lights housing. To scroll through modes, just continue to click .
To change the lights angle, hold the body of the light at either side with one hand, and GENTLEY! pull down the actual light head., you can see its hinged….you then have TWO further adjustments . Please be extremely carefully doing this task, although this light is well made, to keep weight down the adjustment is a simple lightweight plastic cog that cannot take heavy handed use .
The rechargeable battery model only also has on the battery housing a RED sentinel light that glows when the main unit is on doubling up as a rear light . To focus ZOOM, just pull slowly out the front head light. Do NOT leave batteries in any electrical appliance for any long periods on inactivity.
Battery Charger and adaptors where needed. Conversion type 1/ for 2 pin Flat charger USA to single EU round 2 pin black universal wall shaver adaptor. Conversion type 2/ for 2 pin Flat charger USA to multi EU round 2 pin -3pin round to Uk flat 3 pin . Conversion type 3/ for EU 2 pin round to UK 3 pin flat fused
Place the appropriate batteries either supplied or your own positive plus + to + symbol shown into the unit using if necessary adaptor supplied. On the single chargers you will need to gently pull down the flat or round pins from the main body of the charger
Turn power on, the LED’s normally will glow RED when charging and eventually turn GREEN when the cells are fully charged. If sometimes they remain GREEN or turn GREEN after a few seconds, just bend the negative upright sprung plate forward slightly, some batteries have a large plastic cover that can be higher than the negative end of the battery, this can stop the charger making a good contact
How long to charge batteries? Times vary but a good way to rough calculate is to look at the output printed on the charger , 200,300 or 500mA etc, then divide that into the mAH printed on the battery ie…if your charger says 500mA and the battery says 2000mAH , its approximately 4 hours to full charge. if your charger is only 200mA , then its 8 hours etc
This is only guideline as few batteries are completely empty, so times may be less. USB chargers are much slower due to low current output, but a very useful option when nothing else is available
