    Bro, U're welcome!
    The metallic tail-ring inside the tail-cap is an electrical contact between the tail-switch assembly & the flashlight host (the flashlight host also act as the -ve electric path for the battery). Loosening the tail-ring also means breaking this electrical path, i.e. flashlight won't lit-up even when the tail-switch is "switch-ON".

    Hey Cateye,

    The L2T I got from you seems to be stuck on the 'High' setting all the time now. Tried cleaning the contacts. twist, turn etc still cannot solve. Got a quick fix for this which doesn't require me to take it down to you (I live west side)? Thx

    Probably more than just the contact issue, need to do a more thorough check (or even have to send back to factory, anyway it's under life-time warranty against manufacturing defect, I'll get it fix no matter what)
    If u are not able to come may I suggest u send it to me via SINGPOST?Give me a call, we get it sort out...

    Yo bro Joe, paiseh u have called me via "private number" last evening (which I only realized after putting down the phone).
    but as spoken I have taken the comparison between Fenix's "L2T" (use 2AA batteries) & Tactical-Vision "C5" (use 1AA battery).

    Yes that's what cave/wreck divers do.
    One main HID & two scout lights as backups.
    Great reasons to buy more toys & gadgets!
