Hum, being Olight I don’t know if they will let the timed stepdown aside… I guess their “internal” and “external” reliability as one of the biggest flashlight manufacturers is built upon their “calculated” risks in the flashlights they deliver.

However, a temperature sensor as Wuben will do on the TO50R would be better, maybe!

I’ll be looking for the reviews on this one Wink

Yep, same customized 18650 that the older models were using (S2R, S30RII, S30RIII, R20…) but probably with higher current

The S1R II also uses a proprietary battery but can also use a standard 16340 just losing charging functionality, I would assume the same case applies to the S2R II

I guess they will always opt for the CW instead of NW in most of their lights ! There is no turning back! Facepalm
But, I don’t think their sales will drop (on the contrary), many people around the world love Olight products and these new flashlights will always make them eager to get another one, not caring about tints or other stuff!
They have solid lights so…it’s a winning team!

Still, I would like to see them what Sofirn, Wuben, Lumintop (throught BLF projects) are making, that is taking into account the inputs from the “flashlight community” (even if they are many and diverse)!

That said…reviewers may try to influence them InnocentWinkEvil

Man I can’t count the number of times I’ve tried to make them make an option for, at least, a NW tint on their flagship models…
Very few of their models were available in NW… but if they take the Luminus path, there is even less chance to get NW…

I believe you mate!! So it is almost a “lost battle” Oops
Most of the impressions of reviewers (most of them on YT and “non-flashaholics”, I guess) is that “WOW, it is so bright, and has shortcut to turbo, and to strobe”, and that’s almost all!

Maybe that is what some brands aim for, not a better beam quality or better tints. Stiiill, they could give us some candies now and then Blushing
Like on the copper version! That with a NW or even WW tint would be gorgeous! On CW is another very good light, that stands out due to copper!

I get their point but they could get ours as well Silly Thanks for the “pressure” made so far Thumbs Up

Average non-flashaholic buyer will see a cool white flashlight as brighter/stronger.
Also cool white LEDs are higher lumen/lux and higher efficiency than warmer tints and higher CRIs.

Indeed, both of them! I would say that Olight is guiding by the second (output, efficiency and heat)!
I like all of their lights I have; still, now and then it could be interesting to see something “different”, other than the aspect and the “internals” (driver, charger, …)! Even if that meant a slight sacrifice of other things such as runtimes! And still I guess their expertise would make them fit to the led specs Wink

Again, that’s exactly correct. The average flashlight buyer wants, white and bright and could care less about tints and that’s the majority of buyers. We flashaholics that care about such things really are in the minority and manufacturers are always going to come out with CW in their first offerings.

On the other hand, flashaholics are the reason that some manufacturers will initially come out offering NW with WW, high CRI whatever tint later on.

Honestly I wouldn’t care that much if only Olight used some 3535 emitters behind their optics…
I mean, from the beginning of TIR in Olight product you can’t use any 3535 emitter behind them…
I’ve tried XP-L HDI/HI, Nichia 219B/C, XP-G2… nothing produces a clean beam with their optics. And when I say “not clean”, I mean “not usable at all”… artifacts, dark patches and weird shape each time Sad
The only solution is to swap the stock TIR with a Yajiamei flood optic (with the honeycomb.pebble surface) to blend the beam. But you don’t have any throw anymore.
My “indoor” S1R got a 219C 3000K for bedside use/checking my son at night, but it’s all flood with not hotspot. Not mule-ish but not really usable outdoor.
But if you’re not after high CRI, you can choose any XM-L2 with your favorite tint and reflow it on the stock MCPCB… when you’re able to open it Facepalm
I don’t know if I would risk it if I had to pay for them. But since they’re free review samples, well I’m kind enough to make a video when I succeed (and some nasty pics when I fail : see the S1-mini opening Sick )
