The latest haul, Olight sales  :ahhh

My Olight order came on Saturday, but only getting around to posting it now:

(Image removed from quote.)

Couple of i1R 2s and the excellent Oport

(Image removed from quote.)

Array 2, i5R in copper, and Seeker 3

(Image removed from quote.)

Couple of O'pen Pros in purple aluminium and washed Titanium

(Image removed from quote.)

The surprisingly nice looking and feeling Omino charger

(Image removed from quote.)

Four Obulb MCs, each with their own Osling accessory

Have you tried the oport yet? Is it any good for a keychain?

Yeah I use it fairly often actually, it's more convenient to stick it on my phone charger than to leave one of the magnetic chargers plugged in. Charge times seem good enough, the build quality is excellent (it's solid steel with a brushed/washed finish), it has a secure closure and is fun to fidget with.

I have no intention of carrying it on a keychain personally, but it's certainly well built enough and secure in closing for it to work  :tu:

Just bear in mind it is magnetic, so your keys, split rings, maybe some change will probably clump to it

That's exactly why I asked, with it being magnetic will it do that, or will the cover prevent it. 

I've got one on the way so I'll soon to able to see if it does

The magnet is strong enough that it can support the weight of an Alox Classic by just the split ring through the cover, so I think some clumping is inevitable.

I just got the new Baton 3 Pro in neutral white and om really liking it. Was going to replace my old s30r baton 3 and I was playing around with them last night and the s30r has an cooler light so it was kind of hard to really compare them and the difference between 1000 lm and 1500 lm aren't that easy to see. But it's smaller, brighter, longer runtime, better clip however om not completely sold on the new button..

Pics to come

Hope it arrives soon anyway! It don't know if it's design or just what I'm used to but with the s30r I feel the button right away, on the baton 3 pro it's a big button but the texture makes it more stealth and harder to get the "click here" feeling in the dark

There are more spill and more flood on the baton 3 and I really liking the warmer tone. But it does get hot on turbo!

The also ditched the glow ring

My own Baton 3 Pro came in today:



I can see what you mean about the button... you don't really feel the button, you feel the flat portion the button creates on the round light. That will take some getting used to. I'm blown away how small this is (in a good way), the little adhesive bracket is a neat accessory too. Performance seems good so far!

Very nice!

Anyone else use the 4 station charging dock? Ill never need to charge 4 at once but the convenience for charging multiples at once was nice. Works good too.

I've got a couple of Ominos, they're a great charging solution! Excellent for Obulbs and doing a routine top up of lights so they're always good to go. I highly recommend the Oport charging adapter too, excellent bit of kit  :tu:

Obulbs are surprisingly compelling, they're really fun and convenient. Great for mood lighting, kids, car kits, and black outs.

You can normally get a bunch of them for peanuts. My first was free with my Warrior Mini, then I got a 4 pack as part of a bundle, even full price on amazon they're pretty reasonable.

Each comes with a charging cable and an adhesive backed metal Olight badge. This lets you stick them wherever you want. There are 4 different models with slightly different features depending what you want and how much you want to spend.

I did a rambly video on all models except the newest Pro (that you can control via Bluetooth), but I think there are a lot of review samples out there with how Olight works  :tu:
