Apparently it was a firmware issue that was quickly fixed.
I bought a L&M Urban 500 for $125 from pushys.com.au last week but tonight was the first time I used it in anger. I decided to take the dark way home just to test it out, along the GC trail rather than the roads. There's a few pitch black sections between Warrigal Road and High Street. The first half an hour it was literally brilliant, then after a few bumps, it started to go into flash-mode all by itself, so I'd hit the button to get back into steady mode, but that would last 5 seconds and it would jump back into flash mode, then the flash mode would last 10 or 20 seconds before switching off.
I was wondering if it might be a low-battery warning mode? That would surprise me because for the brief time that it stays on it is very bright. It arrived fully charged (I presume). Anyway, I'll put it on the charger for a while and see if that fixes things, otherwise its going back to pushys.com.au. i don't know if I'll ask for an exchange or refund yet.
Maybe pushys have a stack of "old stock".
