BIG Bullet Maintenance Guide
PLEASE READ the information found at: Battery University, It is important to carry batteries properly, recharge properly, and dispose properly.
WARNING: If for some reason your "BIG Bullet" locks up, do NOT unscrew it yourself. You will more than likely ruin the threading of the unit. It is very important to apply some NOALOX asap! Please read the Main Thread section below!
Only use protected batteries with the Silver Bullet! The Silver Bullet is not intended to used with anything but (1x) rechargeable 18650 Protected Battery. It is definitely not intended to be used with Non protected batteries. If you use any other batteries other than what is recommended, it’s a use at your own risk! Also please read: Battery University so you can understand what type of risks are involved when using batteries of any kind.
For trouble free operation and smooth battery changes it is recommended to clean the main threads once a week with a soft cloth. Be sure to not leave anything behind. A small particle can cause big headaches when trying to change a battery. I strongly recommend an anti-oxidant/galling compound. I personally use NOALOX, a product sold in most hardware stores including LOWES. It is a product made by IDEAL and it can be found in the electrical isle. Only use it on the main threads to prevent galling/seizing. To apply it simply use a small dab on a q-tip and apply it to the male threads. Work the compound into the threads by screwing and unscrewing the top and bottom. After it is worked into the threads wipe off the excess with a soft cloth. There are several other conductive lubes/anti-oxidants that can be used, this one is the most economical at $2.98 for .5oz.
From time to time it will be necessary to clean this connection. DO NOT use alcohol to wipe off the connector as this will damage the silica,
I personally use Mothers Aluminum polish with cotton balls, this polish is available at most automotive stores. Follow the directions on the container, the more you do it the better you will get. Be sure to wear soft gloves, it will get annoying when you keep chasing those pesky smudges. It is also okay to use a buffing wheel. Use a loose sisal with green compound, if you do not know what that means, you should not be buffing your SB
