    Angry Aargh my lavatube don't work..

    I have been waiting so long for this to arrive. Can anyone tell me if I am doing anything wrong?

    I bought 4 x 18650 batteries and a charger for them at the same time. I have had them on the charger all day, and the light went green, so I figured they were charged. (Just checked with multimeter, showing 4.7v, so all charged up)

    Put the battery into the tube, positive up the top, and as the contact on the screw on cap touched the battery I got a light on the tube itself, but then nothing. Supposed to be 5 click to go on, have tried that, nothing happening.

    The only light I get is the initial contact when I first put the battery in.

    Any ideas? I am so annoyed with this. Waited nearly 3 months to get it, and it doesn't appear to be working.

    Grr.

    Could be a flat DMM battery, etc
    waiting for KBD's answer, hopefully he has a backup multimeter to check again -> overvoltage for lavatube for starters plus more.

    Batts should be 4.1 or 4.2 volts max, over charging them may be kicking in the LT's circuit protection if they are 4.7V.
    Also which LT did you get, there are many different LT's from different manufacturers.

    Plus the batts would be ruined and unsafe to use.

    Hoping the 4.7 was a typo.

    His multimeter might have some internal resistance, if it has 0.5 resistance and he subtracted that from the 4.7 it would be 4.2 volts.
    Touch the probes together to see if this is the case. If so the batteries should be ok.

    I don't think that is applicable to voltage testing, only to resistance testing.
