    hollis led 3 flooded

    Hi all,

    I've just managed to flood my hollis led3. Is there any way to repair it? I have got no idea about how to take it apart futher than removing the battery holder.

    regards,

    dino

    Been debating whether to get your new 15w, led, 'short' canned light [not a fan of canister lights based on experience w/hid's]...Your response [customer service] made my decision........

    Yeah, call Hollis. Superb customer service. I think I spoke to Mark a few time, super nice guy and very knowledgeable. I once had my LED5 flooded, got replaced without question asked.

    Thanks for the kind offer. However the USA is far from here (=Hungary), sending parcels from here is either expensive or cumbersome and slow. Or both
    Anyway, I was not patient enough and yesterday managed to screw the head off with the help of a lathe chuck and a heat gun. The inside looked terrible because of the electrolysis products, but after cleaning and drying it works
    My question is: when I reassemble the torch, which thread locker should I use? Is Loctite blue OK?

    regards,

    d

    Hi,

    What is your follow-up story about floodings? Did your replacement solved the problem, were you able to use the light without other floodings?

    Hi,

    I've reassembled the light with new o-rings and have not experienced any problem since (on ~20 cave and night dives). Now I'm thinking about converting it to UV, because the LED part can be very easily replaced.
