Three random notes.
First I sent Eagletac an email about the crooked pocket clip on my D25A. First email was very sad. They are not making these lights anymore because they were limited editions. Second email was much better. The clip is a universal clip and they would send me one for free, so long as I covered shipping. It arrived about two weeks later and I installed it. It is better but not perfect, say like 99% straight.
1. Eagletac's customer service is good.
2. Unlike other companies (how many limited edition Ti lights is Sunwayman going to make?), their limited editions are actually limited.
3. Pocket clips are regularly a problem on lights.
Second, I have recently gone back to carrying my Aeon on a daily basis, something like a sobert palete cleanser (see tip 8) for gear reviewing. I love this light. But I noticed that the activation and the step up to the high output was not as clean as before. The light would flicker and then sometimes just skip to high. I blew out the compartment. I lubed the threads. I cleaned the head. Nothing. I was getting sad when I looked at the battery. I then noticed that the battery had been in the light for over a year. I tried a new battery and nothing changed. I was about to morn a little when I looked down in the battery tube and noticed that the connector was all dirty. Three drops of de-oxit red later and the light was a smooth as butter again. I guess it is a good thing that the batteries last so long. This is the fourth battery in almost TWO YEARS of pretty regular use. Yowza! I love this light so much that the next tidbit is painful.
Looks like the Aeon is going to go out of production. Rumors have come to my attention, perhaps because I am the Paul the Apostle of the Aeon light, that this next batch will be the last. There is no word on why or what the replacement, if anything, will be. I am trying to confirm this with Enrique now. I will post once I get word.
1. The Muyshondt Aeon is a BAMF light.
2. Clean your connectors, especially on these battery sipping lights.
3. Keep DeOxit on hand for cruddy connector problems. Here are some other gear maintenance aids to have around.
4. GO BUY AN AEON NOW BEFORE THEY ARE GONE. I will not sell mine under any circumstances and I think most owners will agree with that. Once they are all sold they will skyrocket in price on the secondary market. Unless you want to swap one of these to me for my Aeon, you are out of luck.
