I received the LC40 as a gift from you and I am extremely grateful for it. Overall it is a well made product. I do have to say though that you really need to stop selling/giving these out immediately. The way these operate is a health hazard not just for people who are medically sensitive to striving lights.
Your light has a button that is hairpin sensitive. What I mean is when reading the instructions which my other half understood clearly and loves the flashlight by the way he was floored. You only lightly press to engage each of the modes and by lightly I mean very lightly. You see he has a cousin who is a photosensitive epileptic. He is also a military veteran. Before opening the flashlight or reading the instructions he thought it would be a nice gift for someone in the family (not the epileptic).
Your device when my other half simply touched, NOT pressed, the button strobed. So a simple soft bump set it off. We have Maglight flashlights with the strobe feature and SOS feature. You have to try hard to engage them. That is to prevent something like that from happening so that a caregiver who is out looking in the dark for a person who may have fallen (yes, this just recently happened for him) can use a flashlight and not worry it will strobe and cause another episode. Now think of some unaware person out with their awesome flashlight. All because you put a button like that there which is preventable and companies are already doing it for a reason.
There is a reason I have my other half open flashlights first. I have a type of epilepsy also. So thanks for gifting me that time bomb Lucky for me I know better than to play with those kinds of things without first having him do the once over.
Please, for the sake of safety pull these flash lights and change the button mechanism so that it is hard to engage the strobe without a conscious safe effort to do so.
I am also emailing this to support.
