Olight S Mini

You guys have probably seen this at the other forums...

it's smaller than S1, it's brighter than S1, and it has 6 different variations... so to help me remembers them, I'd decided I would call them easy to remember names like...

 

to clarify, these S Mini lights are not release yet. those pics are from manufacturers. what is known for now (but could change in the production version):

  • CR123A/RCR123
  • Smaller than S1
  • More compact clip design
  • slightly higher Turbo output than the old S1
  • Copper (Raw Copper, Rose Gold, Black) are cool white
  • Titanium (Polished, Bead Blasted, Rainbow PVD) are neutral white
  • Likely available in stages next month

price will need to wait for dealers to announce...

6 different variations. I’m guessing every single variation has the usual cool-white LED. Sick

“Smelly Hand”… do I want to know why?

I’d take an Angry Wife. Big Smile

Only thing that bugs me is that I never liked lens-up clips. Is that clip reversible to the tail end for lens-down carry?

It doesn't appear to be reversible based on the product photo.

I got my eyes on the Sahara desert. I’ve been wanting a bead blasted titanium S1. Good thing I’ve held off.
I’ll definitely set aside some funds if the S1 mini comes with a neutral white emitter.

I’ve got a thrower, a flooder, and an EDC too. Still looking for a bigger thrower, flooder, and a new EDC, give or take a few. I’m a flashaholic.

Hope they come with the diffuser like the titanium and copper s1’s do.

So, is Smelly Wife the same price as the other two Ti models?

What’s the CT/tint on the NW? Has that been finalised, or is it just a generic “neutral white”?

(Good God… I’ve become a tint-snob. Big Smile )

Been playing around with my 4300K C8, and am really liking that CT!

I’m thinking that the rainbow colored one should be called Bud Light!

Raw copper is antibacterial, therefore when you handle it, it kills germs on your skin. The “smell” comes from the cornucopia of bacterial fauna as some decompose after being killed or are consumed by other bacteria types more resistant to copper ions.

Unless you are allergic to copper, not harmful to you. Different skin chemistries and bacterial loads make for a range of scent and strength. Mostly smells acrid and coppery to me, not too bad. Some describe it as a “old onion” smell…

I know about the AB properties of Cu (and Ag), but never noticed the smell. I’m kind of Seinfeldian and always washing my hands after touching anything nasty, so I don’t give the buggers the chance to grow in the first place. Big Smile

Not a strong smell for me, but my sensitivity is not that high either. I guess for some it is an issue, but they got it covered with the Titanium versions… Lol

I never got a bare copper S1, which is a bummer. Maybe I can get a bare copper S Mini.

OTOH, the rainbow one is an interesting option too. And both black and silver look nice. Really, the only ones I don’t want are gold and grey.

It’s unfortunate that Olight still has an obsession with cool white. I guess I’ll have to change the emitter. XP-L HI 5000K should look nice, or Nichia 219C 5000K. It uses an XM-sized pad though, so I guess I’ll have to change the whole MCPCB.

Anyone wanna convince Olight to do a special batch with better emitters and no PVD? Like what Goinggear did for the copper S1, only with better tint. Only problem is, I think they have a minimum custom-batch order quantity of like 3000 units.

TK, I tried a 219C in my S1…that was horrible, the beam is f*cked up really bad
No idea about the XP-L though

Slowly sinking into the dark abyss of addiction...MUST buy lights !
