Why won't my FLEX light turn on?

I purchased my light in February 2014 and have used it infrequently. When I put it on the charger the green LED light immediately goes solid green, indicating a full charge. However, the light won't turn on. When left on the charger, the flashlight will briefly flash when the power button is pressed. Is there a warranty on this thing? The light has never been dropped or mishandled in any way.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

It sounds like your flashlight is trying to turn on the main LED to full brightness but is unable to draw sufficient power, causing a shutdown.

You probably just need a new battery.

You could double check this by installing a program from this repository: https://github.com/dhiltonp/hexbright (that page also has setup instructions)

They all catch the undervoltage condition and prevent the light from pulling too much power. I'd recommend tactical or whb's up_n_down.
