Olight S1 Baton Review

Posted by Best Light on

Olight's S1 Baton is a CR123A/RCR123A powered light that has become the go-to EDC light of many for a good reason.

Olight M20SX Javelot Review

Posted by Best Light on

The M20SX Javelot is Olight's latest model succeeding the M20S-X which previously only had 550 lumens with an XM-L2 emitter.

In addition to that, the max output has been increased to 820 lumens which is much closer to what a light of this caliber should be outputting.  Manufacturer Specs/Features Three brightness levels from 25 to 820 lumens, plus a strobe mode Customized CREE XM-L2 LED with a smooth reflector creates a tightly-focused beam to maximize throw reaching...
