How do these LED Maglites compare to something like an Olight Baton or other similar light?
Dragging this out of the past, but what Maglite? I have a few Maglites and more than a few Olights, including at least one iteration of Baton.
Any love out there for Incandescent Maglites? No question everything beyond incandescent is brighter (Xenon, LED, etc.) but my eyesight is kind of crappy and I've found that the brighter bulbs wash out things (like combination locks in the dark) and I benefit from a softer light. I've actually been grabbing up a few smaller (1AAA, 2AA) incandescent Maglites while I still can.
Don't get me wrong I have a few 3D big old Maglites and they throw so little light even compared to an Olight I5T but I still have soft spot for them.
