yor welcome it does eat up some batteries but it's worth it.
Trying not to be a Hack.
The LED Flashlights will also flicker when the batteries get low.
Also use a pencil eraser and rub it on the terminal by the light. I had to do it a few times, battery makes better contact.

My new mini-mag light works awesome. I have had no problems. It has 4 settings. 100% 50% strobe SoS. I use it everyday
Purchased a "streamlight" at J-mart called Stylus Pro, has been very good to me. uses 2 AA batteries that fits in shirt pocket next to the ink pen ( also comes with a holster ).
I've carried a SureFire for about 14 years.

My coworker and I bought the Terralux 180, from Johnstone, and have the same issue.
I have a thread on here somewhere about the quality of battery being used as a possible cause. I know for a fact that some are shorter than others, thus the spring stretch trick works.
I was also told that the battery life on this is 4 hours MAX, more like 2 with constant use.

For a solid el-cheapo that's priced to be disposable, in an earlier thread, someone (2sac?) mentioned TrustFire S-A2 Cree XPC-WC-Q5.. $15 price range on e-bay, was a bit cheaper on dealextreme (search by sku 36358). Small, 230 lumens, 3 modes (100%, 50%, strobe), can take some hits, doesn't need to be shaken to work, sturdy construction, runs on either AA or 14500 lithium batteries. The only issue is that they're made in China.
Pulling the spring is a temporary fix. If it's the old style mag light you'll notice it puts a little dimple in the positive end of the battery, causing poor contact. I had the new one with the three battery holder that slides in and didn't have an issue for months. I lost it and bought a replacement and this one acts up. Go figure.
Bad ground, haha. Hey make sure that you read the directions on the LED MiniMag lights as they do some things that most aren't aware of.

I put a small glob of vaseline on the battery holder contact. Works great.
This also works on volume controls and other types of variable resistors that have spotty contact. Put a tiny glob on the resistor strip of the potentiometer. If you listen to a radio that sputters loudly when you turn the volume knob, the vaseline will eliminate the noise.
Also works on car battery cable-to-clamp connections. Clean the cable end with a tooth brush and baking soda paste, rinse, dry with a hair dryer or a butane lighter, then coat with vaseline. Sometimes a corroded battery cable is all that's keeping keeping your battery from recharging or your car from starting.
When working with car batteries, remember that they emit pure hydrogen when recharging. Keep ignition sources away.

Change your vacuum pump oil now.
Test. Testing, 1,2,3.
I never seem to have trouble with my mag lites I have a mini and a 2D guess I just got lucky has them both a couple of years
