Cygolite stuck on randomly
My Cygolite HotShot SL randomly decided to turn itself on with my bike still parked in my room. The light was stuck in solid mode with no way to shut it off or change the mode. Plugging into USB (to charge the unit, normally) did not do anything, but I expected that from the unit being on anyway.
As I was typing this post originally, it randomly turned on and off, sometimes cycling between modes as well, all while "charging". It returned to normal behaviours after a few minutes. However, as soon as I unplugged, it returned to the unresponsive solid state.
I've had a Planet Bike LED tail light that finally gave up running after acting berserk about six months ago; perhaps the same kind of problem?
