Hi Daniel,

It is completely normal.
Mine has the same behaviour; the led is as 'bright' independent of 
the position of the switch (not including the brief moment just 
after switching when it is fully on).

It says in the manual also to remove the battery while not in use 
for extended time, so you might want to remove the battery if you 
are planning not to use it for a few days, or a week.

My mic is stored with the battery inside for years now, and I hardly 
have to replace it.

changed (it is still slightly bright all the time).

second) but then becomes dim again.
