Better than an Olight S1 Baton?

Need a genuine pocket sized light to replace S1 Baton. Still need same size (see pic) Is there anything with more grunt? The S1 is 500 lumens.

Check out the “On The Road M3”. Very nice light, if you don’t need a moonlight mode.

On The Road M3 is a nice “clone” of the Olight, but instead of using an optic it simply has a small reflector but a very nice 900 lumens turbo. I like it, but have one major concern with this light (besides 5C being too warm for my taste): it runs on a small 16340 li-ion battery what has very limited power, so you need to recharge it regularely if used as EDC, but there is no charging dock or USB charing port … meaning you have to take out and externally charge the 16340 all the time… sucks!

No not the On The Road M3, the i3 is better, it is a zoomie, in flood the same kind of output as the M3 or little Olight BUT zoomed you can see much further.

would you consider a light that is not cool white?
If you are specifically interested in CR123 lights, the Zebra SC32 comes to mind…
would you consider AA/10440?:

when comparing size specs, I suggest you also look at the relative weights of the lights you are considering

S41 is nice S41S is nicer but I have the On The Road i3 on a cap and actually use it. In not max mode nice runtimes.
You asked for something to replace a little Olight, now the S41 can be seen as a modded hotrod, nice to show off but not so much something I would actually use ad EDC thing

The rofis tr10 is a nice one. A bit bigger though but very versatile.

If you’re considering the S41, might oughta consider the Astrolux S1 in shorty mode. Well over 1000 lumens with 18350 IMR.
