To grease or not to grease?

6 posts in this topic

Ive got the the yak attack flag/led light combo.  Great product, have used for a number of years.  But it’s not working at the moment.  Swapped out the batteries, Im Hoping it’s just the led bulb.  I have back ups coming in the mail.  

 

BUT I did notice corrosion on the battery contact within the tube.  Should or has anyone ever used dialectic grease in something like this?  Yakattackgear is Nice but pricey and I do not want to have to order new one.  Maybe I can remove the corrosion or just replace the contact?

 

im hoping someone much handier than me can offer some insight.

Nowadays the first thing I do when I get a new light is coat everything inside with dielectric grease, last light I bought as a replacement was a Princeton tec attitude about 8 years ago, it’s pretty much my surfcasting light so it sees a good amount of dunking, I’ve had others  before it but without greasing them up when new they start to fail after about 2 or 3 seasons..... lesson learned

I use dielectric grease on flashlights battery terminals.  I'll also use fingernail files, the cheap board kind you can buy in bulk, to reach into tight places.  The points can be cut to a pointier end with metal shears.
