I own Lumapower MRV Sidekick Ultra 111 Standard and Turboforce editions. Whats that copper colored stuff you use in the threads? It cannot be copper paste - right? For me it looks too coarse to be good for O-rings and I remove it promptly at least from the tailcap, but that maybe just me and my neurosis.
Side note: how about glow in the dark sidekick switch? I find it hard to find it in the dark sometimes, (theres some tautology for you, sorry, my English bad). In this climate - I live near artic circle - obligatory thick winter mittens made thing even worst.

Reason: typo at title
So it should be all good and not damage O-rings? But in the long run, isnt it better to remove it and replace with something better and familiar for you? Better means here better water/moisture resistance, smoother threads.
The point is, I know only industrial grade copper anti-size, and thats for high temperature applications and is quite abrasive stuff that will eat up aluminium.
Really, please give the development team a tip, that sidekick switch is hard to find (=fell) even with thin shooting gloves on the hand. It shoud not be hard to figure out some better touch/fell based clues about its location. I have made my own duct tape based solution .. Also GITD could be one option.
