i just measured my olight s15r and blf A6, both had moonlight modes of 3 mA and next level at 25 mA, so this one has a brighter ultra low then.

nice flowchart for the ui!
it always starts in ultralow when long-pressing, and you get access to turbo and strobe by double/triple clicking.

This is ultra low is 10mA. It is slightly brighter than moonlight but it still pretty useful in my opinion.

There is on time memory (<3s) for the four brightness level. It will only start from ultra low by default when memory is cleared. (e.g disconnect power from circuit - you remove and re-insert battery into flashlight).

I am out if it doesn’t always start in low or ultra low.

Please add 2 more lights to my previous order for 1, subject to your test/review.

Will there be an option & discount for the “gift” set which includes the battery and charger?

Still trying to figure out why this has not taken off…

A 5C option!

Nice solid body with a screw in bezel…

Decent UI from the looks of it…

No visible PWM it appears.

Magnetic Tail Cap…

Nice looking anodization…

Come on people! I ordered one from the special with the battery and everything, when it comes in, I will post my impressions here…

I am not sure either… basically no PWM, good tint, good modes, magnet, decent clip. I am not sure why nobody is jumping in on this one. This is basically the cost of 3 emitters. Looks like the LED is easy to change, the UI looks pretty good. I think it will make a nice EDC. I wonder if it could be reamed out to take an 18350?

It could be that nobody recognizes the brand “On The Road”. I discovered this group buy when some asked on Reddit if this flashlight was an Olight clone, and then I did some google searching for it.

True, I did like that it is a little larger than an S1. We all like our S1’s, but a bit more size goes a long way and this one should be pretty sweet in size. Not to big, not to small…

I am hoping to figure a way to put a triple in this, just for fun of course, but if not, it looks like a standard 20mm optic will fit and provide options for floodier beams if that is what you like (I do).

Brand is less of a big thing if it is made well, I picked Thorfire by comparing them to a Convoy, did not do too shabby for my first C8, but that was because I knew what to look for from reading BLF before I made an account…

Well it will, once you understand the UI.

And you seem to be a very picky person Wink


I would like it if there were a way to disable mode memory. I like a light to start the same each and every time I turn it on. I prefer starting on low. I’ve got buckets of lights that I never use because of the memory. It just took me a long time to figure out what I like.

I would help you thin those buckets! I like to always have memory, if I want to start in a given mode, I just shut it off there.

I would really like this groupbuy to happen. I would also buy the light for the full price if not, but I don’t need a (probably bad) charger and battery.
Strange that there’s such low interest…

BTW: you did a little mistake in the list:

Sharpie, I could not agree more. These look like they may be little jewels in the rough.

I have already one with 5C and love it. Hard to find a light with a rosy U2-5C tint on the market. One more with 5C for me, please!

Just got the one I ordered with the charger and battery from the original special for $27…

This is a very nice little light. The quality is evident, hell, the reflector screws in! The kit has a nice looking charger, not some cheap junk, and the battery is a very low internal resistance and 720ma on my Lii-500 on the first cycle.

The Convoy Optics that Simon sells in his store, just take them out of the white plastic holder and they drop into this light. A little work with a toothpick, and the O-ring even fits… As was said, there is no easy triple option here, unless you can chuck it into a lathe to take out the threading for the reflector, then it looks doable…

EDIT: Forgot to mention…. Only showing 7µa for parasitic drain, so this is a pretty good driver over all. There is no visible PWM to my eye, and I seem to pick it up well…

Put me down for one more 5C, total of three on these in this GB please! Heck of a light…

It does seem to be one of those overlooked lights that is done right, but not known, so I am glad to have found it here.
