  • Let's talk about @olightworld for a minute. As many of you know olight makes very competitively priced flashlights. I've owned 2 to date, an s20r and the M1T Raider (pictured here). I carried the s20r for a few years as my daily carry flashlight. It worked well for a while but eventually started to have issues with the switch and would flicker. I tried a different cheaper light that didn't last, so I bought another Olight. I've been carrying it for about 3 months now and have noted a problem. As you see by the second picture it gets pretty hot. This was after about a few minutes on high on an open table. I've had it click on in my pocket and it has burned me(burnt enough that my skin was tender and red in that spot for a couple days, so nothing terrible, but still not confidence inspiring). I'm sure it gets hotter when it's inclosed, but I haven't tested it. I'm going to continue carrying it for now and extend the testing period to see if anything else crops up. I'll post an update if anything happens.

  • Well, it's a sad day today.
The S30R Baton II is down to only one setting, and even with fresh batteries (I'll be trying others later) its stuck on the one, flickering setting.

I got the @olightworld S30R Baton II in the beginning of 2017 right before Violet had her stroke. Within the first few months I had lost either Turbo or High as a setting... But with Violet's stroke affecting her vision I needed the settings available to take her out at night since she was more than scared of the dark at that point.

Today I did a gear check and alas, the S30R Baton II is on it's last legs after being worked hard for the last 2 years.

Is it still covered under warranty? I believe so... But, this is one piece of gear that I'm sentimental over.
Thanks Olight, for helping me take care of my girl.
