That sounds familiar... in my case it may or may not have  Ti in the name.
It wouldn't be the internet without people complaining.

It may or may not be a X-Mas gift I will be getting... :D
And I may or may not be paying parts of it and not be telling the person gifting it to me how much it may or may not cost.

Ah yes :salute: I don't think I could convince many of my family to pay the prices I pay for much of my gear either :D

I have a copper aaa Maratac that is pretty cool. The copper takes on its own personality with use. Then, when you polish it, it gets a distressed look around the edges.

Try a small bit of metal polish on a toothbrush with soft bristles. Baby toothbrushes work well. Brush polish in one direction (front to back) and lightly buff remaining polish off afterward.

Enjoying both my Seeker 2 Pro and M2R Pro :like:

If I had to choose between them though, I would pick the M2R :whistle: I love the Seeker 2 and it is a fine light, I wouldn't have a problem using it for many years to come and undoubtedly will :salute: but the throw and focused  beam of the M2R is much better for what I use a light for (which is checking around the yard at night to see if anything is going on :D )

The guys over at BLF really were down on Olight for releasing this light with a proprietary battery, but I do not regret the purchase in the least. I really like this light. It has great reach for its size.

Thanks Aloha :hatsoff:

The battery doesn't really bother me because I am not a heavy flashlight user and it will likely last me a long while before I have to replace it :D I still have the same battery in both my S1Rs and one of those is over 3 years old :tu:

It's a great light and the charging case is actaully really handy  :tu:

You can use it in the charging case like a bedside lamp btw, just put it on medium whilst in the case and ceiling bounce it, the case will charge it as it discharges, closing the case's lid turns the light off too.

Thanks for that, that could come in handy.

I already have the S1R Baton which is a very handy little torch, the Baton 3 just improves on it.

Just persuaded my boss to let me buy a S2R II for work.  We don't half get ripped off at work though, £15 more expensive (+£7.95 delivery on top of that) to buy from our suppliers than I could buy one for off olight store, etc.

Baton Pro on the way.  I was looking for a sheath/case for my work S2R II, ready for when it arrives, and noticed a seller on amazon had the Baton Pro's reduced by £27 compared to Olights prices, so it had to be done  :facepalm:

Should be here tomorrow  :D
