The Ultimate Olight Products Guide
Olight is one of those rare companies that have a raving fan base and for good reason – they make amazing products and listen to their customers. In fact, Olight routinely asks for feedback from product users so they can continually improve their products and to keep customers coming back for more. I’ver personally filled out numerous questionnaires from Olight to determine what products, I, personally would like to see. That’s pretty amazing coming from a large company like Olight! They even have an O-Fan Club that awards points that you can use to purchase items.
With that being said, Olight has a huge product offering that includes tactical flashlights, hunting flashlights, weapon lights, rechargeable camping lanterns, everyday carry flashlights, pocket knives and even an app-controlled “orb” that’s programmable and changes colors.
Field testing is the best way to test the true value of a product. While it’s great to look good on a shelf, outdoor gear must be tough, efficient and feature the latest technology in order to be considered worthy of your money and space in your home, camp, RV or bug-out bag. You get all that and more with Olight products. I’ve personally tested a products in all categories over the years and can tell which products are winners almost immediately upon using them. Olight recently sent me a package of products and I instantly knew what I had the moment I cut open the package.
Olight has some of the most loyal customers of any outdoor brand I’ve ever seen. In fact, there are numerous social media fan pages dedicated to Olight products, particularly their amazing line of flashlights. Intrigued doesn’t even describe how I felt about testing a few items, so I reached out to Olight and took a few products camping to see how they performed in the real world. Here are my findings and favorite Olight products:
Olight is world-famous for their wide selection of flashlights. Leading in performance, Olight ensures you will have a great experience with their lights.
Everyday Carry Flashlights
Olight Warrior 3S Rechargeable Tactical Flashlight – Olight.com
When you need a powerful light that has amazing reach and dual-switches, the Olight Warrior 3S is a top contender for your money. Olight hit a major home run with the Warrior 3 line of tactical flashlights and they’ve quickly become a fan favorite for those who use them for camping, hiking, boating, or just around the house. You need a flashlight that’s tough enough for rigorous activities and the Warrior 3 is built like a tank with plenty of extra power. In fact, you can get the Warrior 3 in multiple finishes such as aluminum, copper and titanium depending on your preference.
One thing I love about the Olight Warrior 3 is the wide assortment of choices between the models. You can choose between original black, Od green or solid copper or tap into the elemental lineup of Fire, Air, Water, and Earth which offers a cool take on each natural element. My favorite is the Fire element Warrior 3S because I love the rich blend of colors. One thing you should know is there is a small difference between the original colors and elemental line: Black, Od Green and Copper each produce 2,300 lumens and a max throw of 300 meters, while the elemental colors power up to 1,850 lumens with a max throw of 260 meters. Small differences, but something every buyer should be aware of before making a decision. I’m extremely partial to the OD Green and Warrior 3S Fire titanium flashlights, but each design is awesome!
Battery power is always an issue on EDC flashlights, but the Warrior flashlight can run for 55 days and gives you real-time battery level indicators so you always know how much time you have left. Not only is the battery incredibly powerful, but the Warrior also features a built-in proximity sensor that will damped the brightness level once a nearby object is detected while using certain modes. Stuff the Olight Warrior flashlight in your pocket with the clip and you will always have a powerful flashlight at your command.
Warrior Mini 2 Compact Flashlight – Olight.com
You don’t always need a large flashlight and a compact light can be easier to carry. Many people choose the Warrior Mini 2 as their EDC tactical flashlight due to its size and handle clip that fits in your pocket. In fact, clipping a few of these to various bags will keep you with a flashlight when you really need it. Personally, I keep a flashlight next to the coffee pot so I always know where it is as well as one clipped onto my bug-out bag and daily bag that never leaves my side. It’s good to be the person with a powerful flashlight when the lights go out and everyone else is frantically searching for a bulb.
You still get plenty of power with the Olight Warrior Mini 2 at 1,750 lumens and a 220-meter throw. Battery power on this EDC light is legit and has a 45-day runtime which is perfect to clip to your bag. I personally love the dual switches so you can use it for tactical applications or just as your EDC flashlight. Reverse the clip to carry your Warrior Mini 2 bezel up or bezel down. Many users pair this smaller EDC flashlight with the larger Olight Warrior 3 to cover all bases in your EDC loadout.
Olight Baton 3 Rechargeable EDC Flashlight – Olight.com
Small but powerful is the term you’re looking for when describing the Baton 3. Boasting a max output of 1200 lumens and a 166-meter beam distance, it’s apparent why the Baton 3 has such a large fan base. In fact, I would venture to say that the Baton 3 is one of the most powerful flashlights of this size. Compact enough to easily clip to your pocket, daypack, or hiking backpack for those “just in case” moments. Clip it to your pant pocket, or shirt or magnetically attach it to metal and it will always be ready.
Measuring 2.48” and weighing only 1.87oz., the Baton 3 is one of the best compact EDC flashlights pound for pound. One of my favorite features is the portable wireless charger that’s incredibly easy to use and will give you a max of 94 days of light which is absolutely phenomenal considering the size of the Olight Baton 3. This is one you have to see to believe.
i5R EOS EDC Flashlight – Olight.com
For an in-between-sized flashlight, the i5R EOS is one of the best. Rechargeable and 350 lumens is quite a deal for the price of the i5R. In fact, it would be hard to find a rechargeable EDC flashlight in this price range that can outclass this torch. I like this flashlight for all types of activities because it’s bright, compact and has a max throw of 64 meters which is plenty for most applications. Tail switches are a great feature to have so you can click between modes and have more control over your flashlight.
Choosing the right EDC flashlight is difficult because you have to balance power, size, battery longevity and price. Get a flashlight that’s too big and you can’t carry it as easily. I personally chose the Olight i5R because it’s a great in-between size compared to the Warrior 3 and Baton 3 and has plenty of power for most activities.
Olight iXV Keychain Flashlight – Olight.com
The iXV is easily my favorite keychain flashlight. It’s super bright with up to 180 lumens and two settings depending on how much light you need. Rechargeable flashlights are the best way to go so you don’t burn through tons of batteries and the iXV features a built-in rechargeable battery that uses a Type-C USB cable. Personally, I use flashlights every day and hate buying batteries, so this was the perfect choice for my EDC. While you can easily attach the iXV to a keychain, I recommend strategically placing a few of these in multiple places so that you always have one available such as on your keychain, daily backpack, or even wear it as a necklace.
You can get a full charge on the iXV keychain flashlight in just over an hour to give you plenty of run time. In fact, you can run the Olight iXV on high for 23 minutes or low for up to 12 hours! That’s a lot of power for a keychain flashlight of this size. Measuring only 2.02” and weighing 0.78 oz., the iXV is tiny but powerful. I’m a huge fan of this keychain flashlight and love the convenience of being able to charge it anytime with a USB-C port.
i1R 2 PRO Keychain Flashlight – Olight.com
Part of being prepared is always having the right gear within reach when you need it. Having the perfect flashlight but not knowing exactly where it is at all times kinda defeats the purpose. Keychain flashlights are the perfect way to keep a light with you everywhere you go. Most of us have our keys on us at all times and within reach, if anything were to happen. The i1R PRO is an upgraded version of the most popular keychain flashlight made by Olight.
Performance is key when choosing a keychain flashlight and this bad boy has a max output of 180 lumens with a throw of 48 meters which is pretty darn good for a tiny keychain flashlight. My absolute favorite aspect of this keychain flashlight is the USB-C charging port and the 130mAh battery with a 12 hour run time. Buying batteries gets old and now you can simply charge your flashlight and this is the absolute perfect solution! Personally, I have USB-C chargers permanently in my day pack as well as my vehicle, home office, and all over the house so it’s super easy to keep these flashlights fully charged and ready to go at all times.
Olight Floodlight Flashlights and Hunting Flashlights
Floodlights are perfect for lighting up a large area and “flooding” it with bright light. Perfect for hunting, camping, checking your property at night and for when the electricity goes out, Olight has a flashlight for every scenario.
Seeker 3 Pro Bright Flashlight – Olight.com
When you need an ultra-bright floodlight to light up a large area, you don’t want to mess around with weak flashlights. The Seeker 3 Pro boasts an incredible max output of 4,200 lumens that throws 250 meters! Perfect for checking out the campsite or feeding the animals at night, the Seeker makes a great companion that’s easy to carry and features built-in proximity and thermal sensors that lower the brightness in the event an object blocks the lens when you’re using certain modes. If you spend any amount of time outdoors with a flashlight, you know it needs to be tough, easy to use in the dark and have a powerful battery that won’t fail when you need it most. The Seeker 3 Pro is designed with an aluminum alloy body with dermatoglyphic silicone and is rugged enough for heavy-duty use. Charging doesn’t take long and gives you light for 15 days.
Freyr Multi-Color Tactical Flashlight – Olight.com
Olight created something special with the Freyr; a multi-color, dual-switch 1,750-lumen tactical flashlight that has tons of real-world applications. Red, green and blue lights are great for night vision protection and tracking, while the bright white light is perfect for illuminating your area. Also great for directing traffic, the Freyr is a great addition to police gear, bug-out bag, vehicles, hunting and camping gear and right next to your front door in case you need to check out things outside.
This beast can run for 15 days with the moonlight mode and will provide you with plenty of light for any outdoor adventure or work shift. Not only is the Freyr incredibly bright with multi-color options, it also has a proximity sensor that will dim your light if it detects any obstructions that can cause your flashlight to overheat. We highly recommend the Olight Freyr to anyone that needs a versatile and powerful flashlight for law enforcement, hunting or just to keep around the house.
Warrior X Turbo Tactical Flashlight – Olight.com
Whether you’re camping, hunting, search and rescue, emergency applications or just checking out the property – the Warrior X Turbo is the perfect match. Delivering 1,100 luments and a super far throw at 1,000 meters, this is the flashlight you want if you need to light up huge areas. A single charge on the rechargeable battery will last you up to 12.5 hours. I personally like the stainless steel design and the two-step tail switch for various uses. I was pleasantly surprised at how powerful the Warrior X Turbo is and still able to maintain incredible battery life. The super far throw is also a nice feature to have when you’re in the woods.
If you shoot your firearms at night, you need a dependable weapon light that’s powerful enough to illuminate a large area. Olight makes some of the best weapon lights on the market.
Olight Baldr S Rechargeable Tactical Flashlight (Blue Light) – Olight.com
Olight did a great job making the Baldr S compact, powerful and easy to charge. In my opinion, those are some of the most important features when choosing the best weapon light. This particular model features a blue light beam that’s easy to spot day or night. In fact, many people can see a blue beam better than other colors. With a powerful battery, the Olight Baldr S will give you a maximum time of 140 minutes before you need to recharge. The light is incredibly powerful at 800 lumens and really lights up your target. I’m a fan of the blue beam.
Olight Valkyrie Turbo LEP Tactical Flashlight – Olight.com
When you need to see what you’re shooting, you need a weapon light like the Olight Valkyrie. Speaking of illumination, the Valkyrie Turbo can throw a light up to 530 meters with 250-lumens and can help you see exactly what’s in front of you. You need a beam that doesn’t spill and this weapon light does an amazing job with its high-intensity LEP beam. Easy to install with a quick attach mounting system, you can have the Valkyrie Turbo up and running in no time. I personally like the ambidextrous rear switches and rugged design.
Olight Odin Mini Mlok Mount Tactical Flashlight – Olight.com
The Odin Mini weapon light is incredibly popular and for good reason – it’s a sturdy and compact light that gets the job done. It uses a rotate-to-lock slide rail mount and is easy to install. Featuring 1,250 lumens with a 240-meter throw, the Valkyrie earns its keep and is worth every penny. A few other features we like are the silent stainless-steel tail switch, easy charging system and vibrating battery indicator.
Rechargeable Camping Lantern
Camping lanterns have been around forever, but Olight changed the game with the Olantern series which provides over a week of light on a single charge and can charge your electronic devices.
Olight Olantern Classic 2 Pro – Olight.com
I use the Olight Olantern every single day either at the campsite or in my home office. Originally, I had wanted it for when we pull the camper, but quickly realized it makes the perfect light for a desk and helps light up my workspace. Rechargeable camping lanterns have come a long way as far as the technology used and power output. Olantern gives you two colors – warm orange and white light with the turn of a dial and ranges from 10 lumens to 300 lumens. Stepless dimming makes this a nice addition to your camp or home. In fact, the copper finish looks amazing with our exposed brick interior and gives it a rustic look that I enjoy.
Not only does the Olantern provide you with plenty of light, it also functions as an emergency power bank that can charge phones, tablets, small fans, speakers and is perfect for power outages. Olight knew what they were doing when they designed the Olantern and it’s perfect to have around the house or campsite just in case. It’s made with an all-metal exterior which makes it tough enough for daily use and it’s IPX5 water resistant so you don’t have to worry about using it outside. Three colors are available to choose: Vintage Copper, Forest Green and Clay Beige. I recommend the Olight Olantern Classic 2 Pro for any type of scenario you can image.
Olight Obulb Pro – Olight.com
This is one of those products that has so many uses it’s hard to categorize it, but you definitely want one! Basically, the Obulb Pro is a multi-colored light orb that you can control with an app to light up any room. They’re extremely customizable and give you additional light where you need it. My Obulb Pro gets plenty of use at the campsite when we want to light up the picnic table without flooding the area with too much light so we don’t bother other campers.
Adjustable brightness and a crazy amount of color choices make this a really fun product, especially if you have children. Program it with warm white light, red, green, blue, red flash and you can make it fade between all colors which makes this a great addition for your home for throwing parties or simply lighting up an area such as your reading space or desk. The magnetic base allows you to attach it in various areas and it’s actually pretty tough and IPX7 waterproof. It’s also rated as impact resistant at 1.5 meters just in case you or your kids accidentally drop it.
The great thing about Olight is they make such a wide assortment of outdoor products including knives.
Olight Oknife Beagle Pocket Knife – Olight.com
Everyone needs a dependable pocket knife. It doesn’t matter if you work in an office setting or spend most of your days in the woods – a pocket knife if one of those items you need on you at all times. However, you have to be sure to pick the right one. Size, material, durability and price will likely be your main concerns when choosing the best EDC pocket knife. I personally love the Olight Oknife Beagle pocket knife because of the design, materials used and price. High-strength stainless steel is worth every penny and the Beagle was made for daily use. Featuring a Micarta handle which is slighter than G10 and simply feels better in your hand, the Beagle is the perfect blade for nearly every task. Thumb studs allow quick access to your blade and the stainless liner lock keeps your blade locked and ready to use.
