Hi LeeG. Umm, well, no I can't say it is recommended by the manufacturer who says it's waterproof anyway (as you know). I put a blob of silicone on the switch for two reasons: 1) I want it watertight, and this seemed like a good idea at the time (it'll peel off easily enough if I've goofed or I just change my mind); 2) Sometimes there are downed branches (and overgrown brush) on the MUT I ride (and sometimes I do try to avoid such stuff, sometimes I don't)--I figure the blob will help keep the switch from getting hit to "off" or bent or even broken off.
I ride with the light on high all the time, so I don't (and now can't) use the "off" or "low" option--and I'm fine with that.
