Help with romisen RC-N3 II flashlight

I've got this light and its starting to turn on and off when i'm ridin' the bike. I strongly suspect that the switch in the tale cap is defective. I know these can be ordered from shiningbeam, does anyone here know how these come out of the light? i'm alittle confused. Thanks in advance...

You can remove it from inside the cap. It will take a small snap-ring plier or pin wrench to engage the small holes in the switch cover.

Did you get the light from Shining Beam or DX?

i have two rc-n3s, the q5 and the r4 version, both have the same problem.

bryan from shiningbeam suggested i solder a little gob where the tip of the first battery makes contact.

Make sure all of the parts are screwed together tightly.

Put two o-rings (or rubber bands) on the first battery.
