Awesome review!
Do you know if the new version has a green tint too? I am buying one but have a green tint Thrunite And it bothers me alot so want to be sure first.

Think the lottery is in full play with Olight, Zebralight and Surefire. Do you feel lucky...well do you....(Clint Eastwood)

Going Gear got them in on Friday. The 400 lumen S10-l2 also. The few members that have pre-production models in their hands ain`t talking. Makes me think there may be issues with them...

Just to say a small thanks to the whole cpf and to selfbuilt for this review

I bought the S20 about a month ago (after reading this review) and i am really happy. Moving on to the next :)

How's the tint on the new S20 xml2's?
Well, as mentioned in the review, they are better now (due seemingly to the reduced anti-glare coating on the lens). But that's all relative - I'd suspect most are still likely to consider the Baton lights to be somewhat green-tinted, on the whole.

Hi
I am considering this light...how easy would it be to mod the tailcap? IE remove the magnet and bolt the cap to a surface.......?
Thanks
Tony

Tailcap magnet is easy to remove (designed that way). As for your proposed mod, should be straight forward enough.

I'm wondering how much it weighs without the magnet.

Any idea how many lumens it's putting out in strobe mode?

I am looking for the same answer...

I rotated the battery last night (with no red light) and the battery voltage was measured 3.56 V. Which according to my CPF notes... 3.5V = over discharged
