A journey of a thousand miles begins (and continues) with a single step. This definitely seems to be Olight’s mantra when it comes to their now signature Baton series. Working continuously to improve already quality lights, in a manner reminiscent of eating an elephant, one bite at a time.
Solomon was renown for saying “There is nothing new under the sun.” He was right of course, This is especially true once you start looking at fields as established as flashlights. Once in awhile though, despite not being able to be called truly “new”. A light comes across my desk that is a fresh enough concept to require a more in-depth look.
Brightness abounds in so many forms. The latest Lumintop is another take on the keeping huge lumen output into a compact form factor. How well does it compare to existing offerings?
With the lumens race still heating up, finding innovative ways to cram incredible light into ever shrinking packages has become the norm. Revisiting previous torches with iterative advancements is also something Olight is known for. Combining these two givens into one torch can yield some very interesting results
Olight continues to expand their cadre of excellent photonic offerings with further options, this time adding to their impressive duty light line. Who doesn’t love options?

Xtar comes in to save the day, showing once again that headlamps are a little slice of heaven when they are truly needed. The trick is making sure you have them on hand when that time comes.
At this point, it’s getting to where I need to start simply detailing the differences that each new version Olight offers, rather than going through all the same basics.
Bigger and brighter. Most of the time when a flashlight company comes out with a new product, this is the direction they choose. With Olight lately, this hasn’t always been the case. I guess we were just about due for something like this.
