Olight S1R Baton (V2) 900 Lumen 1 x RCR123 CREE XM-L2 LED Rechargeable Flashlight
- Product Review (submitted on September 17, 2016):
- Prior to buying the S1R, typically carried the S1 or the S10R II. Even though they're roughly the same size and have similar output they were still lacking in some respects. I liked having the ability to recharge my S10R II without having to take the battery out all the time, but I preferred the spill offered by the TIR lens on the S1. Now I finally have both on the S1R. Not only that, but having 900 lumens at your disposal is a great bonus, and the more portable charger is great for travel. My only gripe is that the 900 lumen turbo mode only lasts 30 seconds before dropping down to 300 lumens in order to prevent overheating. I wouldn't mind losing a couple hundred lumens if it meant having a slightly longer runtime in turbo mode (having any more than 500 in such a small package is bright enough already). If you need a rechargeable EDC flashlight with plenty of lumens, and not a lot of pocket room to fit it in, the S1R is what you've been looking for!
