Test results are startling with hefty blows from a small
ball hammer leaving the glass unmarked. I actually tried to break the
thing to see the breakage pattern but had to give up. This glass is true
laminated being 2 glass with plastic interlayer thermally bonded. "Mulilayer"
is not the same thing, beware of imitations.
The lamp will to the best of my knowledge be unique in
having this type of glass. All the other lamps with the usual Scurion
type rimless glass are polycarbonate.

The Switch (Tested on a custom Lynx X_Basic )
"I have now used my upgraded Lynx X_Basic on three further digging trips
into speedwell cavern. I made no attempt to avoid mud covering the new
switch, and changed the brightness of the lamp at least twenty times on
each trip. After repeated muddy fingers pressing the button, the switch
did require noticeably more pressure for it to work. With extra pressure
the switch worked reliably.
Washing the switch in between trips has restored the switch pressure to
