My review of the OLIGHT Baton 3 Pro, possibly the safest high power compact EDC flashlight on the market - Proximity sensor, temp controlled step down, usual OLIGHT features inc timer etc

Thanks for the review.
But more interested in the new Olight Gober than the Baton flashlight (I don't like proprietary batteries)

Gober battery is built in proprietary. Baton 3 Pro uses the ubiquitous 18650.

Yes I know about the Gober's battery but it's a $ 14.95 gadget and I can tolerate it.

Does the new version Baton have a traditional 18650 battery?
I knew it has some special contacts and that normal 18650s don't fit.

The battery is customized to work with the magnetic charging adapter. This doesn't preclude use in other lights.

Standard 18650 charged externally are reported to work in the light.

The customized battery works with external chargers.

I have lost interest in lights that don't use USB C for charging. A proprietary charger is a no go for me. I sold off all of my external chargers last spring.
