Looks cheap but that video is pretty impressive. Doubt most “camping” lanterns will hold up to that torture. If I was going to use it for it’s actual intended purpose then I’d get one. But since I am not, I’d rather get an LT1 just to have around the house.

Pretty much that Wink
I am still looking to get a LT1, couldn’t get it when it was launched, and I will try to get one soon Tired

Interesting video, thanks for posting.  

Too bad they did not test it while being used as a lantern compared to other lanterns.

I have two frequently used Sofirn BLF LT1 lanterns.  This video did not persuade me to purchase an Olight lantern.

How many flashlights does a "real man" need?

None, real men are not afraid of the dark.

Oh my goodness… Facepalm

That lantern looks really cheap, not at all they way Olight flashlights normally look like. Anyway, Olight seems spending godzillions of dollars for advertising. The way they kept spamming me multiple times every (!) week with newsletters, charity sales, limited sales, flash sales, clearance sales…(to be continued) can almost be considered as “assault and battery”. Angry I have finally come to the point to unsubscribe for good. LOL

Haha, I made the mistake of buying a light direct from them too. Tried unsubscribing multiple times, and they just ignore it. Finally trained Gmail to throw that crap in the spam folder…. yup, just checked the spam filter. There are 6 olight spam messages in 2 days. Good lord I hate that company for their marketing tactics… and their crap emitter choices

unsubscribe does not work

So I got one of the i5T EOS Ti from the sale. I like the 2-mode interface, mode separation, the forward clicky, and the twisty grip, and feel like I should have bought two when I could. But the light does have some problems, plastic lens, and the Osram P9 is pretty hideous. At first I thought the emitter was interesting, but then it festered… ugly and sort of painful tint. On the high mode, it doesn’t snap right to it, but sort of increases in brightness from the low mode level to its highest output. Some will find that annoying, but I think it is kind of neat, different, anyway.

The i5T can be modded, but the emitter swap is pretty gruesome, and it does lead to having a better lens, if the right size can be found in sapphire or borosilicate glass.

Looks like ebay has a new inventory of i5t TI, 60$ not too bad for quick flip

Their Black Friday sale has an interesting pop can looking light. Wish it wasn’t proprietary batteries but looks like it does have 3 21700’s
