Bought mine when they first Dropped. Switch has stopped working. Anyone have any information of fixing, or getting MD to provide a fix?
Bought in 31.03.2017, work ok until 06.2018, from that point no power on :( Maybe the switch it is defective, i will try to replace with new one.
Ordered the flashlight, read all the reviews about people having trouble with the switch. Tried to cancel before the item was shipped, but was unable to cancel the order. That is just bad practice.
Mine seems to eat batteries like a junky, even when it's off. It'll work with fresh batteries for some time. I'll turn it off. Then, it won't turn on again. This with Eneloop batteries.
Hello, can anyone tell me if this is the Nichia 219BT? I currently own one of the original Lumintop Ti versions and love it's led. Are they using the same in the Brass Massdrop as well? Thanks in advance.
I just read the 300 reviews. There appears to be very poor QC here. The fact that MD does not stand behind these is more than enuf to prevent me from even considering a purchase.
I'd but this in a heartbeat if it had a deep carry pocket clip. What makes engineers think they want their gear poking out?
what made some of you guys that bought this pick it over the copper?
I'm torn between the brass and copper versions of this light. They both look great after the patina develops, but I'm limiting myself to a single light, and I'd be open to input. I'm also carrying the brass Ferrum Forge Utility Blade.

Did you get one of these flashlights? If so which one and how do you like it?
Not yet, but I will most likely buy one this month.
Are these made by Lumintop or Maratac?
Maratac does not make lights, they get them from Lumintop
Took my light camping last weekend, when it worked it was great, but it would randomly decide not to turn on - generally when I needed it. VERY frustrating. Emailed massdrop, but haven't received a response.
Mine stopped working as well. It looks like the switch is faulty as I managed it to turn on with a firm smack to my palm. Unfortunately, it cannot switch modes or turn off. The battery has to be removed. It's pretty little paperweight. Too bad. I really liked this light.
Mine stopped turning on after less than 6 months of use. Looks like people have a similar experience in the comments, imho stay away unless they plan on replacing these.
Looks like mine has a junk switch as well , really sucks I liked this light . not even a year old , never used up the first battery.
Looks like my switch has failed as well, any chance of a miracle such as a replacement switch or even replacement torch under a warranty?
The weight (with and without battery) is listed for the copper and titanium versions of this flashlight but not the brass... what is the weight on this light?
I purchased mine here 6 months ago, it’s been used for a total run time of MAYBE 12 to 15 minutes, last week the switch just crapped out!! What the freakin heck! I mean C’mon the body is perfect why can’t the switch be nice too??
So does anyone know where I could send it to be rebuilt into a dependable flashlight? I love the body too much to just throw away. Any info would be appreciated! Or is it easy to get parts to do DIY? DN
Ditto. If I could see better,I'd try and fix the connection. But I think it had a melt down tonight and a pretty piece of junk now.
This is a "Lumintop Tool" flashlight in different metal. The base flashlight is around $3 from China.
My flashlight I bought at the last drop doesn't work anymore and its been just over a year. I wouldn't buy this again. Save your money for a Fenix. To second someone else on the board, Gwen from Massdrop Support is just totally unhelpful.
Its a flashlight not something complex, it should work for more than a year. Or let us buy tail caps so we don't have to throw it away.
Please read also my earlier comments for the product in this discussion. Gwen, Toby even Lumintop not extending any help, even though I offer to buy them. Read discussions here. Many earlier backers asking for help on this issue. But no one seems getting any, except the lucky few, those still under warranty. Last drop bought 3. 2 failed just after warranty (14 month). The question here, why Massdrop still promoting a product that is not near perfect. Have they consider replacing it to a "clicky" switch, if Lumintop has not perfected the so call e-switch. Prospective backer, if buying ask for extended warranty on tail end cap (switch) or prepare to bin it, if it does fail after the warranty. If it is a massdrop/lumintop collobration. I am of the opinion lumintop dont keep inventory for this product at all
Pretty bummed, I've been carrying this for a few months and the main part unscrewed at some point and fell off my keychain. Still got the switch part but lost the majority.
Do you still have the switch part? Would you sell it? thanks
I cannot get my flashlight to turn on. What could I be doing wrong?
Most likely you & me have the sane issue. The on/off e-switch faulty. I bought 3 units, from the last drop. 2 units. Toby & Gwen from support community not helpful at all for after sales. Not extending any help even though i wanted to buy the spare tail cap (end cap) to replace. Many who bought have encountered this problem. The support community don't try to solve this problem. Yet try to get backer to support the drop. Very un-enthtical bussiness behaviour.
Thanks for your response and advice.
is it possible to get a replacement for the tail?..i think mine died when teh battery exploded inside it...damn duracells
You unit have a faulty on/off e-switch like mine. Refer my earlier comments to dszpiro. Left with no choice i used mine as paper weights.
I got this and loved it so much I got the copper one too. I'd love to have one in 925 silver. Please make that happen :)
The instructions mention "Click to Turn On/Off' Press To Select Brightness". There is only one kind of response I have gotten from the button, though, which is to turn off/on AND cycle the brightnesses. Example usage:
1. Off 2. Press button to click, starts on low 3. Press button to click, off 4. Press button to click, turns on at medium 5. Press button to click, turns off 6. Press button to click, turns on at high.
There is no non-click press I am able to perform that has any effect on the light. I find this pretty disappointing, as I would like to be able to pick the brightness with one type of interaction and toggle on/off with another. I was planning on using this for looking around inside machines I'm repairing on low intensity most of the time, turning on and off as needed. Instead, I'll now have to press it 5 times to bring it back on at the desired intensity.
After looking through the discussion, I saw talk of two different types of switch parts. Are there any of the other kind (that have separate UX for changing intensity and toggling on/off) that Massdrop could send my way?
Are there any other AAA LED lights I could buy to use instead of this one?
You want a lumintop tool aaa (basically this light) with the rubber reverse clicky switch. it's basically exactly what you want it to do, full click turns on-off, half-click changes brightness, only drawback on that switch is that it doesn't tail stand as the switch protrudes.
What is the difference of the CREE XP-G2 R5 LED and CREE XP-G3 LED ?
Also how durable is the brass casing. As I just gotten mine today and I'm on the edge about realling using it or not. As most other flashlights I've used in the past was aluminum based.
EDC for over a year and love this light! Just lost the clip, any idea if I can order a replacement?
Nice little light with great battery life but the green tint Is a bit annoying. The light is running the Nichia led.
pls make a floor version. like the button more than a twisty
I have the copper one too. Both seem to be well made. The copper one seems to be brighter on high than the brass one on high but still nice.
Significantly less bright than I thought it would be & the flashlight clip broke the first day I had it.
