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 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’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 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 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 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.
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!
