    Different Dinotte 4AA Tail Lights?

    On my dinotte tail light 4AA there are just 4 modes. Low, Medium, High, 5Flash-Pause.
    In the manual and a few other posts I have see noted that there should be 2 different sets of modes (flashing or steady) which are changed by holding the button for 6 seconds then turning on with two clicks.
    Well mine turns on when I just tap the button no two clicks needed so when I hold it for 6 seconds it really does nothing but turn it on then off when I let go. I'd really love a High-Low strobing during the day is there seperate directions for the old and/or orphaned version of the light that I seem to have?

    Yours is one of the older versions. As I recall, the manual really only told about the four modes and how to "condition" the batteries when new. You seem to have found all the modes and your batteries have been used, so I wouldn't worry about a manual.
    My two favorite things in life are libraries and bicycles. They both move people forward without wasting anything.

    Lucky for me, I work at a library and bike to work.

    thanks but that kinda sucks for me. I actually purchased them during during the upgrade over the summer so I hoped I didn't have an old one. One seem to have failed recently I maybe I'll get a new light driver if I can get them to fix it.

    Call Rob and talk to him about it -- he is very good at supporting his lights!
