    Layman's Flashlight Reviews - Change in Status

    Change in Status It is with deep feelings that I write this, but it has been some time coming. As of now, I am entering a state of semi-retirement with flashlight reviews. I will no longer be accepting new lights to review without direct prior authorization. All the lights I currently have...

    Lumintop PS03 review - A Layman's perspective

    Lumintop PS03 Brightness abounds in so many forms. The latest Lumintop is another take on the keeping huge lumen output into a compact form factor. How well does it compare to existing offerings? Lumintop PS03 Meat and Potatoes The Lumintop PS03 is a huge output light in a relatively small...

    Olight SR Mini II review - A Layman's Perspective

    Absolutely! Honestly, I thought I wasn't a floody fan at first as well. Throwers have so much more wow factor. The floody lights though make for so much more useful torches, I've found. I've really come around to liking them. Thanks for the kind words. I don't get as many of them done as I...

    Olight SR Mini II review - A Layman's Perspective

    Olight SR Mini II With the lumens race still heating up, finding innovative ways to cram incredible light into ever shrinking packages has become the norm. Revisiting previous torches with iterative advancements is also something Olight is known for. Combining these two givens into one torch...

    Olight R20 Javelot review - A Layman's Perspective

    My reviews don't center on facts and specs so much as the subjective user experience. I figure there are so many other sources for the objective information that I can't really compete, so I try to focus on other areas that are sometimes skipped by those other excellent reviewers.

    Olight M3XS-UT Javelot review - A Layman's Perspective

    I'm not exactly sure, but I saw GoingGear saying it, so I suspect it's them: https://twitter.com/goinggear/status/633025686538711043

    Olight M3XS-UT Javelot review - A Layman's Perspective

    Bigger and brighter. Most of the time when a flashlight company comes out with a new product, this is the direction they choose. With Olight lately, this hasn’t always been the case. I guess we were just about due for something like this. Olight M3XS-UT Javelot Meat and Potatoes...

    Olight M1X Striker review - A Layman's Perspective

    Olight M1X Striker The Olight mantra of iterative improvement strikes again, this time in the form of another aggressively bezeled wonder. Is the M1X a worthy successor, or has this design simply grown long in the tooth? Olight M1X-Striker Meat and Potatoes The Olight M1X...

    Olight S30 Baton review - A Layman's Perspective

    I'm definitely not a tint connoisseur, but this one strikes me as just a white white. I usually have to directly compare between models to see differences though. Once in a while, a nice creamy neutral will catch my eye, or the most horrible of blues or greens sometimes show up, but otherwise...

    Olight S30 Baton review - A Layman's Perspective

    Olight S30 Baton Pick your options. Olight is rapidly converting into a flashlight buffet, allowing each user to select the features that best meet their needs. Olight S30 Baton Meat and Potatoes What can I say? This one isn’t much of a change, even for Olight’s penchant for providing...

    Olight M2X-UT Javelot Review - A Layman's Perspective

    Strobe feature works great. You have to do a little fiddly triple click to access it, but it's bright and nauseating, as it should be. Floodyness? Not really, no. There is some spillbeam that will illuminate your surroundings some, but to me, the center spot is bright enough that it mostly...

    Olight M2X-UT Javelot Review - A Layman's Perspective

    Admittedly, I'm not a huge fan of the UI either, but this is a light I seem to simply leave on Max. I don't find that beam profile to be much use at all on any other mode, so those modes to me are superfluous.

    Olight M2X-UT Javelot Review - A Layman's Perspective

    Olight M2X-UT Javelot Purpose built lights have been on the decline lately, with everyone trying to provide one light to meet every need simultaneously, but there’s something to be said for those lights that just do one thing, and do it well. Olight M2X-UT Javelot Meat and Potatoes...

    OrcaTorch WR10 Rechargeable Flashlight review - A Layman's Perspective

    It seems that with the LED revolution, flashlights have almost irrevocably shrunk in size to provide for better portability. Does this brave new world have any room left for more traditional large lights? OrcaTorch WR10 Meat and Potatoes OrcaTorch is a company I have only recently...

    Olight S10R, S15R, and S20R review - A Layman's Perspective

    Yeah, for this first one I need to limit it. Sorry about that. I have to research international shipping so that in the future I can offer it further out.

    Olight S10R, S15R, and S20R review - A Layman's Perspective

    I'm afraid I don't have enough knowledge of battery chemistries and voltages to know how well it does in such a case. Wish I could help there, but I have to just trust Olight to have made them well.
