S1 Baton XM-L2 Flashlight
The smallest flashlight with a side on/off switch available in the offer by Olight and one of the smallest flashlights on the market - barely 6 cm long!
Olight S1 is an EDC (everyday carry) flashlight, which due to an efficient Cree XM-L2 diode and PMMA TIR optics (lens/reflex sights) provides a beam of light of 500 lumens. Attractive design joined with technical solutions uncommon thus far in flashlights of this class make this one of the most innovative mini-flashlights on the market. Members of armed forces will appreciate the strong backup in case of malfunction of tactical flashlight or a headlamp.
The casing of the flashlight was made from aerospace aluminum covered with hard, anodizing in black colour. In addition, the head of the flashlight is protected with steel crown in the front. Such construction allowed to increase the resistance to fall damage to a height of 1,5 m.
Implemented seals guarantee IPX8 Water Resistance. The flashlight’s head is fixed, which
reduces the risk of damage and seal breaking. Batteries are installed after
removal of the rear cap. The cap is flat and allows for the flashlight to be
put in vertical position. Additionally, the cap contains a strong magnet which allows for sticking the flashlight to
any steel surface, even to a roof or a vehicle.
The heart of the flashlight is advanced electronics which steers the power drain directed to the XML diode. Thanks to that, the flashlight can cast light in a selected mode with the same power until complete discharge of the battery. Active Thermal Management system protects the diode from overheating whilst operating in the most powerful mode. After 90 seconds it reduces the voltage and stabilizes the light on a level of around300 lumens. After deactivation of the flashlight, cooling off and reactivation, the flashlight will once again operate in the most powerful mode. Electronics is also responsible for initiating different modes and memorizing the last used mode.
The flashlight can be turned on with a button located before the head of the flashlight, which is a comfortable and at the same time practically unheard of solution in the case of flashlights of this size.
Modes of continuous light: 8 lm/ 80 lm/ 500 lm/ 950 lm are switched between via a long press of the on/off button when the flashlight is turned on. Moonlight mode (0,5 lm) is initiated after pressing and holding the on/off button for around 1 second when the flashlight is turned on. This weakest level of light is a valuable option when used during reading a map up close or when we do not want to disturb the eye accommodation to dark. Also in everyday situations like when we require a light source in the middle of a night and do not want to wake up a roommate.
S1 model is furthermore equipped with a timed on/off switch (Timer), which after prior programming turns the flashlight off after 3 or 9 minutes.
Can be worn comfortably thanks to a spring Clip on the casing of the flashlight. It allows to fasten the flashlight to an edge of a pocket or an equipment strap, also to cap visor and change a simple flashlight into a headlamp.
Modes of operation/operation time (CR123 Battery):
- 500 lumens / 1,5 h
- 80 lumens / 6 h
- 8 lumens / 40 h
- 0,5 lumens (moon) / 600 h
