    Do what I did:

    Replace it with a NEBO Redline Flex.

    Sometimes the spring base gets contaminated with battery ooze and looses continuity. If you see debris on the spring clean it with an emory board, old toothbrush and alcohol.

    Is this the one that you operate by unscrewing the top a little?

    There are YouTube videos on fixing the switch in that part of the flashlight. Search around.

    (Fix did not work for me.) :-(

    There must be a loose connection somewhere. Try shaking it, taking it apart, returning it, or buying a new one. As far as I'm concerned it's the batteries and bulb that are the expensive bits, the casing and the switch are relatively cheap (i.e. you can buy those kinds of flashlights really cheap these days and they might even work).

      Mag mini lights cannot be fully taken apart without special tools that only Mag Instrument has.
