Olight Baton 3 Flashlight

Olight makes some of the coolest and best performing flashlights you can get. We have 3 of them now, with the addition of our latest, the Baton 3 Flashlight.

It's a miniature power house. You probably wouldn't believe the amount of power something this small can put out until you tried one for yourself.

What makes it a worthy investment for an emergency kit or everyday carry? Let's find out.

The Best Small Flashlight?

I've purchased many number of small body flashlights over the years, for inclusion into get home bags or for daily use, and they are all different in how they function and what they are designed to do, but I gotta say, after getting my hands on the Baton 3 now, my methodology is being tested.

What I suppose I hadn't internalized the output which is possible from this type of lamp and battery. It's impressive to say the least.

At it's peak it pushes 1,200 lumens (6,889 candela) out to 545 feet. Own the night with a teeny light.

I did i side by side comparison between the Baton 3 and its big brother the S2R Baton II to compare the light output of both models.

In real world use, the output was nearly identical. If you compare specs the Baton II has more lumens, candela, and beam distance on paper but in my non-scientific testing I couldn't really tell the difference, probably since they both use TIR lenses.

Here's the Baton 3, Baton II and Baton Warrior Mini 2 side by side for comparison.

View from above:

The Baton 3 is a diminutive light. Smaller even than a lighter.

Here's a helpful graphic, which shows the Baton 3 blown out, and all it's independent parts.

The Baton 3 is built tough. IPX8 waterproof rating which means it can live underwater quite nicely, as long as you have it tightened up properly.

Here's a fun video of a couple of folks beating a poor Baton 3 up for no good reason. I almost feel bad for it.

The MCC 1A Charger

I just want to take a minute to say how much the Olight charger has grown on me.

I'm not a fan of proprietary stuff, and I tend to lean towards interoperability when choosing technology, but the MCC 1A has totally won me over.

Now that we have multiple Olight flashlights, using the MCC 1A to charge them all makes them a breeze.

It clicks onto the tail with a satisfying "thunk" and the green/red LED light is a quick way to check the charge status.
