3.1 High Intensity flashlights will produce heat, some units will reduce brightness after a short time or at a certain temperature to reduce heat built-up. This will differ from model to model but may be as little as 10 seconds up to many minutes. TURBO mode on most models are not sustainable for continuous use and is intended for sporadic use. Heat built-up is normal and unavoidable and will not constitute a warranty claim or refund. Do not leave your light unatended on high lumens where it is not safe to do so to avoid burning sensitive surrounding items.
3.2 Warranty claim items have to have a perceivable and non-trivial error in order to qualify as a valid warranty claim. When we test the item, we have to be able to detect the problem or malfunction. Items functioning as normal or with undetectable errors will not be replaced or repaired.
3.3 Physical damage due to being dropped or being man-handled or bent will not be covered by warranty. The drop resistant spec indicated on some products refers to the flashlight electronics being able to handle bumps and occasional drops etc.
It can be readily expected and anticipated that if your light is dropped, especially onto a hard surface or especially the higher weight lights like the tiny monster series, the metal components might scratch or bend or the glass might crack. This damage is NOT covered under warranty. In some cases where the metal is bent, a repair will not be possible without replacing the entire part of the torch and that will incur the part replacement costs by the client. If the LED or electronics ceases to work AND there is no prominent housing damage on the light, it WILL however be handled under warranty regardless of whether it was dropped or not.
3.4 DO NOT submerge your flashlight. The IPX waterproofing is merely an indication that the flashlight is capable of handling day to day tasks such as splashing or walking in the rain. Even so, that is only possible when all components are tightly fastened and closed. The warranty excludes submerging the unit unless the unit is a purpose built diving unit.
3.5 Flashlights with battery leakage damage is not covered by the warranty.
3.6 Flashlights that sustained damage due to being switched on in the package after delivery was taken is not covered by the warranty. Be careful how you store and transport your units to avoid accidental activation.
3.7 Items opened past the normal user interface will void the warranty.
