A: Be sure the charger is plugged in and receiving power. A red light
should be lit on the cigarette plug indicating that it is getting power. If
it is not lit, check that power to cigarette lighter plug is turned on. If
there is power, unscrew the tip of the cigarette lighter plug and check
the fuse. If the fuse is blown, it MUST BE replaced with the same fuse.

Q: Why doesn't the blue light stop flashing?
A: The charger monitors all the cells in the flashlight and from time to time
the cells need re-balancing. If this is the case, keep the flashlight on
the charger and plugged in for a few hours. The flashlight can still be
used at anytime, however the run time may be shorter until the charger
balances all the cells and the blue charger light is on solid after an
extended charge cycle. The numbers of times that the flashlight needs
to sit on the charger for extended periods will vary depending on use.

Q: Why won't my flashlight go into peak (200 lumen) mode?
A: It is likely that the flashlight needs to be recharged. If the flashlight
is placed on the charger and the blue light flashes steadily and never
turns to solid, keep the flashlight on the charger for a few hours. Once
the blue light is solid, the flashlight is fully charged and balanced. At
this point, it should go into peak (200 lumen) mode.
