Staff promoted brand. YMMV on true value, take "deal" and votes with some skepticism.
posted many times before, can some SD Vets weigh in on quality?

rapidly topped "popular" (+6TU) as many staff deals seem to.

I don't know about staff promotions but this is an olight sale that was planned independently of SD. They are launching a new light, the one linked.

IMO it's a safe pass unless you are a flash light enthusiast. There are cheaper lights for similar quality. If you must get one of these, I recommend the blue one because it's the limited edition run.

This light's true specs is bascially 600 lumens for 2.5hrs.

This ranges from 16.99 to 21.99 with battery. How do you know if it's real? Is this actually 1600 lumens vs this deal fro $60+ that's only 600?

Flashlight enthusiast... haha... that a good one....

I'm only laughing because... I've become one. Since last Christmas, I've gone from 0 flashlights to 4. I got one as a gift and I was amazed at how bright and small it was. It was a Multipurpose emergency car tool with a seatbelt cutter, glass breaker, flashlight and rechargeable battery and I loved it!

Then I bought a Kobalt spotlight flashlight that used the same battery as my drill, then I got two smaller Coast flashlights (600-700 lumens). I have rechargeable AAA batteries for those; but I'm antsy to get my hands on a rechargeable flashlight. However, my future wife would kill me if I bought a flashlight right now, so I'll have to hold off....

Even I don't understand why I'm so fascinated by powerful flashlights... But hey... some people find interest in picking their nose, so I guess it's better than that!

Good vid review here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fdPaMTESGsE

Love 18650 lights but I'm going to pass on this one. Seems like it uses proprietary 18650 batteries that have some weird circuit protection built into them and uses a proprietary charger. Charger goes bad and your SOL. Also it has heat protection built in (which is nice) but it will automatically step your flashlight down from 2000 to 650 when necessary.

Personally, I would rather spend my money on a Thrunite Neutron 2c. It uses standard 18650 batteries (and can be shortened and run with a CR123 battery if desired). Its got an infinity light option (hold the button and it slowly dims to whichever lumen setting you want) and it also has a built in USB charger if you don't have a standard 18650 charger handy. It has less lumens than the Baton but a much longer run time (and do you really need 2000 lumens for a EDC?). Finally you can get it almost $20 cheaper than this light (https://www.amazon.com/ThruNite-M...B06XWXVZH7)

Here's a good vid review of the Thrunite Neutron 2c: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J...Otk&t=121s

If you really want a 2000 lumen light then you can get the Thrunite TC15 for $50 (similar light with USB charging and comes with a bettery IMR 18650 battery): https://www.amazon.com/ThruNite-U...M9F5JF7RVR

I highly suggest educating yourself on flashlights before dropping $60+ on this one.

Please read this thread to learn about alternatives:
https://www.reddit.com/r/flashlig..._solstice/

The only selling point on this flashlight is it's has a minuscule size advantage over the TC15/TC20. The XHP50.2 emits a greenish hue to it. The original XHP 50 is a much better LED.

It's also worth noting that almost no Olight uses standard 18650 batteries. You are forced to use their custom 18650 batteries. I find this as a huge negative.

You are missing out if you think any of the flashlights you have are any good based on your post. There are flashlights out there for this price range that would blow your mind.

Steelgaze pretty much hit the nail on the head when it comes to this light. It's a fine light, but there are multiple alternatives that are much better quality for the price. This is an okay deal on an okay flashlight. Olight makes some decent lights. There are just better for the price range and applications. Their custom battery requirements are also a PITA.

For all seriousness you should REALLY check out this thread: https://www.reddit.com/r/flashlig..._solstice/

It will teach you basically everything you need to know when choosing your first or best flashlight.

An example of the information it provides:

Duty lights
These are suitable for first responders and possibly members of the military in combat roles. The focus is on simple operation, reliability and a good way to make sure the light starts on high.

Acebeam L30 - 4000 lumens from a single 18650 or 21700 (included). Neutral white available and recommended. Not the prettiest light, but there's a lot of it, and enough thermal mass to sustain it for a few minutes. Stable output without overheating is 2000 lumens. Forward-clicky tailswith is always max output, but the side switch has shortcuts to low and last-used. USB charging. $123

Acebeam L16 5000K - the L16 is like the L30, but a little smaller, considerably more throwy (603m claimed, but usually tests a bit lower) and 18650/CR123A-only. I hated the harshness and backscatter of the original cool white emitter, but Killzone Flashlights has commissioned a run in 5000K (neutral white). As of this writing, they're the only place to get one in the US. Nkon has them in Europe. $100

Eagletac GX30L2 Pro - for those who want a better Streamlight Stinger. 2x18650. Neutral white with XHP35 HI recommended for more natural color and throw distance. Onboard charging. Neutral white optional. The included battery pack is just two 18650s in series. It says not to charge standard 18650s, but there's no technical reason for that, and it is reported to work. Protected cells recommended. $155

Olight M2R Compact, magnetic charging, uses a standard 18650 unlike most of Olight's range. This would be easier to recommend if it still offered neutral white, but some may find the magnetic charger compelling. $100

Acebeam T36 Another compact option, which does offer neutral white (5000K). Like the L30, it uses a 21700 (included) or 18650 battery, and the same user interface. USB-C charging. $110

Flooders
Turn night into day, but not necessarily very far away

Thrunite TC20 - 1x26650, 1xXHP70.2. This is still small enough for a jacket pocket, but has a bigger battery than most EDC lights, and a spectacular 180 lm/W efficiency on medium. USB charging. Ugly tint, even when neutral. 3800 lumen max, and more efficient than most competitors in all modes. $72 with standing "20%" coupon code

Emisar D18 - 3x18650, 18xSST-20 (XP-L HI by request). 4000K recommended for 10,000 lumens of 95+ CRI light (thermally limited). Efficiency is not a goal with this model's FET driver, but the battery capacity will make up for it for a lot of use cases. Uses ToyKeeper's excellent open source Anduril firmware. $100

Acebeam X45 - 4x18650, not pretty even in neutral white, but it makes 18,000 lumens. $180

Fireflies ROT66 Similar to the D18 and probably not as well-made. Limited stock. Included on the list because of the Nichia 219B R9080 LED option. These LEDs are rare, with beautiful tint and spectacular color rendering. $91

Sofirn SP36 BLF edition - 3x18650, 4xLH351D, Anduril firmware, USB-C charging. Be careful, there's another version of this light with Cree XP-L2 emitters, which are ugly. There's currently a bundle with Sofirn batteries on US Amazon for a very small additional cost, but these usually don't come with batteries. 90+ CRI, 5500+ lumens, 350m FL1 throw. This replaces the BLF Q8 in the list due to the LEDs offered and USB-C charging, though the Q8 is easier to disassemble for those interested in modifications. $50

Hybrids
Some throw, some flood... probably a lot

Haikelite SC04 - 1x26650/2x26650, 4xSST-20. The neutral white option is 95+ CRI and about 3000 lumens with 500+ meters FL1 throw. Side e-switch with a ramping UI and shortcuts. 2x26650 configuration is probably suitable for thumping someone on the head for those who miss that aspect of the classic Maglite. Boost driver for stable output when the batteries are low. This replaces the Convoy L6 on the list due to its LED choice and switch position. $65

Emisar D4S - 1x26650, four emitters, lots of options. This is very similar to the D4v2 from the EDC section, but with a bigger battery, more thermal mass, and more throw. 3000-5000 lumens, 280-480m FL1 throw. SST-20 4000K recommended for most users. $50

Thrunite TN40S - 4x18650, 4xXP-L HI, 4450lm, 1151m FL1 throw. A big light from a solid manufacturer that can do a bit of everything. $136 with coupon code "20%"

Imalent MS18 - proprietary battery pack, 18xXHP70.2. Heat pipes. Fan cooling. 100,000 lumens. 1350m FL1 throw. This thing weighs 5 pounds, isn't waterproof, sounds like a jet engine, and I trust Imalent's build quality about as far as I can throw an MS18, not to mention the price. It makes no sense for nearly any practical purpose, but it's the brightest flashlight you can buy, so it goes on the list. $500

Lastly you have the dreaded bad equipment list
Don't buy this stuff, no matter how good it sounds
:

Any 18650 battery with a claimed capacity over 3600 mAh; it's 100% fraudulent. Batteries making fraudulent claims usually have very poor performance in reality, and may be a fire hazard.

This charger: http://lygte-info.dk/review/Revie...%20UK.html , included with a lot of the cheap lights on Amazon and Ebay; It is a fire hazard and an electric shock hazard.

"Tactical" flashlights (https://i.imgur.com/OQd5sr7.png) that look like this if they cost more than $5 (not a typo: five dollars); these crappy lights have been marketed under several brands, usually with fraudulent specs, for prices that would get you a decent light.

Nuon batteries, which may be the house brand of Batteries+Bulbs, a US retail store. These have a protection circuit with a very low limit and will trip in most flashlights.

BLF A6 is a pretty well reviewed light. It's solid for the price range and features. No light in this class can sustain 1k+ lumens for more than 30s to 1 minute. Typically you will see around 600lumens for this light, or closer to 400lumens on a consistant, and sustained output.

The flashlights you own are all rather low end. I do not think you are at the enthusiast level yet. Check out www.candlepowerforums.com for a bit and see how crazy it gets.
