Yep, those ones with the different levels of lighting and SOS/strobe button wind me up no end because I forget which one it’s set on. So when I go out in the garden of a night time to fight off he invading slugs from my veg patch it strobes and I look like a right wally.
If you can use a soldering iron, this may help :

The next one I think I’ll buy is an Olight, I’ll try them.
I have several Olights, I like them a lot. Sign up to their mailing list, they often have offers on.

Wish I'd seen this before mate, I ended up passing along to friends my 3 mode cheapy cree's and replacing them with single modes. Still got a few so I might have a play, thanks for posting the link.

Great wee thing, handheld but I have 5 mini LED el cheapos just to have. Not in EDC but in kit.
