No matter what I do or try, it won't work

My bagua won't work with anything unless I keep the button screw loose...

Why?

edit: the situation doesn't make sense, you make perfect sense

I have a button top efest 14500 in mine. It leaves a gap, but fires without fail. The AW's I used with my previous BaGua were a perfect fit.

i've used both in the one i had, never had an issue, I'm thinking because of the way you describe the problem that when the switch is loose everything functions normally, when you tighten it down there's something getting pushed out of place blocking the swtich from making contact with the bottom of the battery. Check your insulator on the bottom and see if it's in working order.

Yes, they are. A little too long, unfortunately.

I have 2 bagua's and they got the same issue of not working

also, even with the button screw loose it won't work with the arrow, it does with a viva nova tho lol..

I have the Bagua/Arrow and it works fine with both efest/nipple and AW/nipple. Similar to Krubrick the efests are a little too big and you have to leave a gap. The AW's fit perfectly.

maybe the efest flat are too small

is there a preferable way to do it top or bottom? I put the magnet at the top

& my adjustable screw has to be screwed in super tight for connection with arrow

but they working awesome together right now, I'll need a new top for my nemesis now
