The flashlight provides us with light in the dark and can be a lifeguard in dangerous situations. Whether it is camping, hiking, kayaking or cross-country skiing, you will eventually be affected by bad weather or other equipment that may seriously damage the flashlight. This is why it is important to learn how to maintain it. Every electronic device has a certain service life.
In the course of use, our correct use and regular maintenance can greatly extend the service life of electronic equipment. Therefore, for friends who love flashlights, learning how to properly maintain flashlights is also indispensable common sense! Therefore, learning some tips and tricks about flashlight maintenance will keep it in good condition for a long time.
1. How to maintain the best battery condition
Battery charging and discharging is a cycle. For lithium batteries, it is recommended to charge them as they are used, that is, do not recharge after using up the battery. It can be charged after one-half of the capacity is used. The number of charging refers to the number of deep cycles, that is, recharging after exhaustion is counted as a deep cycle. However, it cannot be counted as a deep cycle in the number of charging times.
2. Prevent the battery from being exposed to the sun
An excessively high temperature environment will increase the internal pressure of the battery and the battery pressure limiting valve will be forced to open automatically. The direct consequence is to increase the battery's water loss. Excessive battery loss will inevitably lead to a decrease in battery activity and accelerate the softening of the plate. Fatal damage such as heat, bulging, deformation, etc. of the shell.
3. Regularly check the battery discharge
During use, if the discharge time drops suddenly, it is very likely that at least one battery in the battery pack has short-circuit phenomena such as broken grids, softening of the plates, and shedding of active materials on the plates. At this time, you should go to a professional battery repair organization for inspection, repair and assembly in time.
Do not direct the light of the flashlight into people's eyes, it is super bright and dazzling, so as not to affect vision, especially children;
When using a flashlight, check that the threads are not loosely tightened. If the threads are not tightened, it may be dark or slightly bright.
4. Precautions for battery use
①When using a flashlight, choose according to the voltage and battery requirements of the flashlight. Don't use it indiscriminately to prevent burnout of the circuit board. Don't use batteries of different models and voltages at the same time;
②In use, turn off the flashlight when the brightness of the strong flashlight changes significantly to prevent over-discharge of the battery; if the flashlight is not used for a long time, please remove the battery (one month or longer) to avoid chemical corrosion.
③The battery should not work under the condition of high temperature. This needs to be considered with the heat dissipation of the flashlight. A flashlight with poor heat dissipation may cause the local temperature of the battery to be too high, which is also very dangerous.
5. Do not disassemble the flashlight parts frequently
The flashlight is installed in a relatively dry and dust-free environment. Frequent opening may cause dust to enter, especially the lamp holder, which will affect the luminous effect. Also pay special attention to that, no tools can be used to clean the lamp cup. The more you clean it, the worse the reflective effect will be. If you accidentally contaminate, please keep the light cup intact.
Some parts will loosen with use. Especially the pressure ring at the tail press switch can be screwed tightly by inserting the two feet of tweezers into the hole. All metal parts of the flashlight, without knowing the principle and circuit, should be sure not to disassemble except the tail switch, otherwise it may cause unnecessary disconnection.
6. Heat the LED lamp beads
Heat will be generated during the lighting process, so heat dissipation is necessary. A flashlight with good heat dissipation should feel heat within 1 minute after it is turned on. The heating part and other parts are relatively even, and the entire metal shell has heat.
If you use the high-end for a long time, please try to keep the flashlight in motion, and let the air flowing through the shell take away the heat. Especially in summer or in a confined environment, please pay attention to avoid burns. Generally, the outer shell will not exceed 55 degrees; in summer sports (such as riding), it will not exceed 50 degrees.
