    Default Streamlight Fire vulcan problem

    I started having some problems with my Fire Vulcan. It was working fine then the next minute it was dead. When i put the light in the charger and turn the switch on the light comes on. My father who is a electrician took the light apart and tested the battery and everything else. The battery is fully charged. He email streamlight and they stated it was a problem with the PC board within the light. Has anyone else had any problems with their light?

    I don't have a Fire Vulcan, but another Streamlight almost burned up a patrol car where I work:

    Holy s**t!! What is this world coming to?!?! PC boards in flashlights!?! What is that for? Is it too difficult to make a flashlight switch turn the light on and back off that you need a computer to make it happen? This sounds a bit like "over engineering" to me.

    Not for nuthin', but I stopped buying rechargeable flashlights a long time ago. I have a 4 D cell Mag Lite that I have had for about 15 years. The batteries last forever and I have never had to replace the bulb.

    Sometimes old fashioned is good.

    What is that for?
    Charging system that is built into the flashlight. Don't want to "overcook" the batteries so the PC board monitors that.
