Lumintop ODF30C new version with USB charging

Really Lumintop ? Blue bezel and switch ring ? Am I the only one to find some “similarities” there ?
I mean, Chinese have no shame when it comes to copy other companies design but, come on Lumintop !
You’re a well-known brand now, you can’t make that kind of choice…

They only recently released the ODF30… and now an “updated” version with charging and some “similarities”? Truly an annoying move Lumintop…

Does Olight own Luminton, have never heard that before but there are company acquisitions all the time.

You’re right, you can’t copyright a color. But it’s not just a color, it’s a strong design choice that Olight applied for years on all their products…
I can’t see how a well-known manufacturer/brand like Lumintop can make the choice to be that lazy… That’s a CrapFire move IMO

Very true. The majority of flashlights are made in China period. The same production plants make multiple brands and end up re branding them under different names.

Cost factors is why things are made in China.

If they want to copy a light, please copy this one and add a side switch Smile In my opinion, this is the best looking small flashlight out there:
