I would say it’s more of a coppery brown , if that’s a word & a colour.

I like it , it’s super bright for its size , it’s blinding to look at (I don’t recommend it) ,the twist action is super smooth & easily operates with one hand ,the specs say 45 minutes runtime on alcaleek but what’s impressive to me is you get 70 minutes with an envelope pro
Yep… Good Eneloops will just about always equal (regular Eneloops) or exceed (regular Eneloop sometimes & Pro always) Alkeleaks. Thumbs Up

I love Eneloops!!

It’s both a word & color now… even if it wasn’t before. Beer

Just call it “Copper Patina Brown” and be done with it. Wink

Go back & look at my spelling ,I’m having a bad spolling day Big Smile
Oh & another thing me likey is the fact that when you twist to off ,you can’t squeeze the head against the body & turn it on like the jet beam mk1 & jetu does, so its less likely to turn on in your pocket.

Question Was wondering if the serial numbers are real and consecutive on these little gems? Or are they all the same number?

Mine is marked SN.44972.

I just got mine and it looks like a great AAA light even if the tint is a little greenish. Going to take it on vacation this weekend to Hawaii where it’s tiny size will work great since I’ll be in shorts the whole time.

^ Hm, when I’m in shorts, nobody is paying any attention to my SureFire 6PD. Wink

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

Mine does.

Mine can, but I naturally turn it past that, so it typically doesn’t. Another 1/16th of a turn and it won’t.

I detect no green on mine - just a pure white.

I don’t see any green either, quite yellow actually outside of the hotspot. I actually think I will put some dc-fix on the lens. This seems like a light that would be nice to have a big hotspot.

Wish mine had a hint of tint. Innocent

—why is green a no-no for flashaholics, I wonder?

With my A01, I always hold the head back while turning off, so that I’ll always turn it past the “bump it on” point.

That’s unlucky , unfortunately we only paid postage & it will cost again to send back even if they accept.

Philips LUXEON TX is all they listed on the original add.

Data sheet here shows:

Quote:
70, 80 and 90CRI minimum and full CCT range available

Without contacting Olight, I don't think we know which CRI/CCT they used.

I was hoping Maukka or one of the other with the right equipment bought the light and put it on the test bench.
Would be interesting to know what led they used. I would for sure not complain about the 90CRI 5700K version Big Smile
