Wow, those are beautiful. Can’t bring them to a plumbing parts store though, if you don’t lose it, they will think you are stealing something…

Olight has some questions for us on the other forum.

“We have decided that we want to get our fans involved. We have some copper prototypes for the S1 Baton. The one on the left is not coated and will patina over time. The one on the right is PVD coated. Which one would you buy? Would you prefer blue bezels or silver? Please let us know!!!”

FYI

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

The Baton series' design in copper is something special, it gives me a weird split feeling: does it look exclusive? or am I looking at a pipe coupling? Laughing

Either way the non-coated version looks way better to me, and please this bezel, not blue

Oh, and my strong principle is that copper lights should have warm tinted leds (or an incan bulb)

Uncoated and silver bezel.

If anything can go wrong, it will.

I love these little guys and might just pick up both the coated and uncoated, but it will be a shame if they end up using the blue bezels. I much prefer the silver, but it looks like most people are voting for blue.

Why not a gunmetal bezel?

Uncoated and silver from this crop of selections. I love me some patina on copper…

Gunmetal is a good option.

I like bezel and clip in the same color
If gunmetal bezel: gunmetal clip
If silver bezel: silver clip

Uncoated might be slightly more appealing, but I would accept both, coated or uncoated.
Just don’t make the bezel blue please. And could the button be made out of copper too? plastic button on beautiful brass light is just wrong..

clearly unfinished is the way to go . the upside of these lights is you could use them to fix the shut off valve under your sink and .. use them to fix the shut off valve under your sink.

I vote for coated and SS bezel.

I’ll take the one on the left just the way it is! Wink Very industrial looking, or steampunk, which ever, I want it! Does it take a 18350? :~

I’m with you, that uncoated/ss or gunmetal whatever is the best option for this light. I’ve got the original black ano light and it does not take 18350. I wouldn’t expect this to either. 16340 works fine through.

Are the walls thick enough to take a brake cylinder hone to them and still have room for an 18350?

Regardless, I could justify a couple of 16340’ just for this light…

I think you’d be buying those 16340s…

Welcome. It’s really a great little light and the copper will be awesome I’m sure, but I really hope it’s not blue pvd…

Another reason for my vote on the unfinished copper

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antimicrobial_copper-alloy_touch_surfaces

Antibacterial if unfinished, plus the patina can look so worn in without any actual wear….

Of course coated will look shiny for a long time, each has their own virtue…

For me it depends on the coating.  If it's clear lacquer then forget about it, I'll take the uncoated.  I'm a patina fan more than anything so safest bet is uncoated.

I saw on another forum where Marshall at GoingGear said they were PVD coated. I don’t know exactly how that works, but some googling around informed me that normally PVD coating copper requires that it be chrome plated first, then PVD coated using a copper colored dye. That’s kind of cheating, if you ask me, so I wouldn’t be very I interested in that either.

Good thing I’m a big fan of raw copper, patina and all.
