At least it's easy to turn the cells round in 'wrong' early Duos.

Even when lights still all used bulbs and polarity didn't matter, some were still designed to stop reversed cells making proper contact.

I would suggest never trying to take a Duo apart as it invariably tends to end in tears .......... unless its broken and consequently you have nothing to lose. If you need to remove a Duo that has been threaded through holes in helmet (Petzl do sell a variant built directly on to their own helmets) or you really feel the need to drill and thread through holes when mounting on your helmet, cutting and shutting the cable (solder iron and adhesive lined heatshrink required) is the easiest and most effective method that Ive found.

It was my intention today to order a side module off of Customduo today. However, it appears the website is down, at least for me. Anyone else have that problem, or know anything about it? I'm assuming he's just moving things around, but wanted to check.

I checked out the domain and it looks like it had [briefly] expired, but was renewed yesterday.
Likely the proper data is now trickling through the world's DNS servers, and access will start working for people fairly soon.

The fact that someone out there makes an update to a 20 year old light is a testimonial to that light. Why would somebody want to invest in updates if the light was a plastic piece of crap ??

Very nice. Particularly like the operating sequence shown in the flowchart. Seems like my nitpicking question from last year may have paid off. :wink:

Might have to try scrimping 130 bucks together and ordering one... :grin:
