Olight S1 Baton Review

Review

I'm going to save you the trouble of reading this review and tell you right away that the S1 is one of the best EDC lights you can buy today. Ever since its debut last year in its original black and blue aluminum design, the S1 has delivered exceptional value in performance, size, and as of Olight's latest offerings, collectibility.

If a feature-packed, inexpensive light that clocks in at an under two and a half inches sounds like a good fit for your carry, read along for my impressions and adventures with the Olight S1 Baton.

Olight S1 Baton

Despite all the new flashlight releases this year, only a few of them are actually compact enough to fit an everyday carry role. That's about to change with Olight's S1 Baton, their smallest light to date. Despite its tiny footprint, it packs the power and features of modern lights twice its size. With an XM-L2 LED powered by a single CR123A or RCR123A battery, the S1 puts out a scorching 500 lumens reaching 120 yards. On the low end, it can keep a 0.5 lumen glow running for an impressive 25 days. It achieves its 2.4 inch length by using shorter TIR (total internal reflection) optics, providing a floody beam ideal for bathing wider areas with even light. The side switch, pocket clip, and magnetized tail work to make the most of the light's compact size in and out of the pocket. With the S1 Baton, Olight have outdone themselves in making an ideal EDC light.
