    I superglued a piece of 20kg fishing line to the housing of the unit and on to the end cap, even though you do NOT have to remove the cap completely to charge it.
    Just long enough to make it work and it stays out of the way.

    Pretty easy fix is to thread charging cable through the cap, can't get lost that way. Problem solved.

    I have both lights, I snapped up 3 of the maxtochs when I heard they were going to stop making them. Have just started on the HC65, nice light so far. Takes a little bit to work out all the modes, but nothing 10 minutes with the manual doesn't fix.

    I have a H01 sent to me from @MSL, really appreciate him sending that & it is very good, I like a lot of the functions & will see how it goes !

    What amazes me is the amount of & quality of flash lights & heads lights now days, truly amazing !

    My old Mag-lite has teeth marks all over from my early Thar & rough country hunts where I needed two hands, even my old rifle sling has lol !

    In the market for a new head torch as just broke my led lenser.
    I see the maxtoch H01r Are no longer available.
    Just been looking at the nitecore hc60 on Ali express.
    Look to be what I’m after, any feed back on them? Or a similar head torch I should look at?
    After a small/light one for getting back to camp and use around camp, don’t need a heap of features etc..
    Cheers
