Olight Warrior X Flashlight Review

Olight has released a new tactical flashlight, and it sports an interesting feature.  It’s the (one of the?) first flashlights with a vibration alert.  Otherwise it’s a very dedicated tactical, throwy light.  Read on to see how it tests!

Olight S1R II Baton and Olight S2R Baton II Flashlight Review

Olight has a couple of new, similar lights out. Updates of some older models, they are. These are the S1RII Baton, and the S2R Baton II. Yes, those are the official names. No, the 18650 version isn’t “S2RII Baton” – it’s actually “S2R Baton II,” while the 16340 version is the “S1RII Baton.”

Throughout this review, I’ve tried to always discuss the S1RII Baton first, followed by the S2R Baton II. The photos are generally laid out that way. The lights are similar enough that if I don’t specify, you may assume that the feature being discussed is shared by the two lights.

Olight M1T Raider Flashlight Review

Here’s another new Olight!  This is a very simple little cr123 light, billed as “tactical.”  I’ve been using it for a while; read on for more thoughts!

Olight I1R EOS Flashlight Review

Olight has a new tiny keychain light out.  In the meantime of me asking for the X9R, Olight wanted to send out the I1R and I3T.  I’ve already reviewed the I3T, so here’s the I1R!

Olight I3T EOS Flashlight Review

Olight sent a couple of their new lights for review.  The I3T and the I1R.  Today I’m reviewing the first of those two, the I3T.  It’s a triple A clicky, with a simple UI.

Olight H16 Wave Headlamp Review

Olight’s released another headlamp, in the same vein as the HS2, which I’ve previously reviewed here.  I liked the HS2 (still have it and use it often), but it’s a very runner-specific headlamp.  The H16 Wave is an interesting development, because it’s adds a “Wave,” ‘hands free’ feature.  Let’s see how it all works for this light!

Olight M2T Warrior Flashlight Review

Olight has recently released a new version of the M2R. This is the M2T, which is similar to the M2R, but without on-board charging (and costing much less!).  This light has some noteworthy tactical features, and is a nice iteration of the M2R.  Read on for more!

Olight Ion Keychain Flashlight Review

Olight recently released a 10 Year Anniversary light.  I don’t imagine this will become a normal production light, and as such that’s how I’ll evaluate it.  It’s an unusual keychain light, with glass front and back, an integrated cell, and on-board charging.  It’s the Olight Ion, and here are my thoughts!

Olight X7R Marauder Flashlight Review

Olight has iterated the X7, and added charging.  I reviewed the X7 ages ago (back in 2016), and was generally pleased.  Let’s see how (if?) Olight has improved on this venerable design, by adding recharging and an indicating side switch.

Olight S1 Mini Flashlight Review

I’ve been a huge fan of the Olight S Mini (the brass S Mini is one of my most used lights!), and this S1 Mini is in some ways, it’s successor.  Yes, it’s from the S1 lineage, but it’s smaller than the S Mini; which is more important?  And now it’s available in High CRI?  I was very interested.  Keep reading to see how I like it now!

Olight M2R Warrior Flashlight Review

Another in a long line of Olight is the Olight M2R.  This one is highly anticipated and regarded, with the momentary and recharging tailcap.  It’s a cool light on paper, so let’s have a closer look.

Olight HS2 Headlamp Review

After [forever] of not having a headlamp with a separate battery pack, I got the Olight HS2.  I didn’t really think I’d like this setup (hence me never having one in decades of having lights).  I wasn’t sure how I’d like this light….

Olight H2R Headlamp Review

Another iteration in the Olight Nova series.  This time it’s with an 18650 cell, an updated headband connection, and overall higher output.  Olight sent one over for me to test and see how this one stacks up!  Thanks to Olight and Going Gear for sending this light to me.

Olight S Mini (Black copper/Stainless Steel Combo Review) Flashlight Review

Marshall at Going Gear sent me these two Olight S Mini’s for review – he asked which I’d like to review and I tried to pick two that otherwise might not get reviewed, or looked at much. Black copper, and Stainless Steel. I’ll admit I love the look of the SS version. Let’s see how they stack up.

Olight H1 Nova Headlamp Review

Olight S2A Baton Flashlight Review

This is a review of the Olight S2A Badon. I happen to like using AA’s in lights because I have a ton of Eneloops around the house, so this is a nice model for me. This will be very similar to the S2R and S1R I recently reviewed, but there were enough differences I wanted to review them separately.

Olight S1Rv2 and Olight S2R Flashlight Review

These were both sent to me by Olight, through Going Gear. I’m a fan of 16340 size lights, and the S1 is one of my favorite lights to carry, so I was interested in this light for sure! I’m also a (relatively) recent convert into the 18650 world and many of my favorite lights are 18650 lights! I’m doing these two lights together since they’re so similar – differing really only in the cell they use. Special thanks to Going Gear for sending these my way!

Olight X7 Marauder Flashlight Review

Finally, a can light of my very own!! I have wanted one of these for ages and I’m super excited for my first one to be an Olight X7, sent to me by Olight (through Going Gear). Special thanks to Going Gear for sending these my way! Thanks u/storl!
