What a great review
Written by stallion2 on 11-12-2010 04:39 PM GMT
to whom it may concern, i've been using this light all summer and it has been perfect. my primary reason for getting this light was to use when spearing. we've been able to run this light 30+ minutes at a time countless times and the light has suffered no ill effects. the head gets pretty warm but by no means hot. it takes roughly 10-15 minutes to reach a stable operating temperature...it certainly seems to make the most of its mass. the efficiency loss w/ heat is inconsequential. it really is a pretty kick-*** light which becomes even more apparent if you can find a regular use for it beyond just saying, "hey guys, watch this"

Yah, very few new lights that come home for me to test/play with stay - the SR90 has earned a permanent spot in my home.
It's awesome for night golf BTW.

A great review, thanks. The time involved looks like it took many hours of work.
One item not listed in the specifications is the diameter of the battery pack or handle. Scaling from the photo that includes the Maglite D cell flashlight it looks like the grip area diameter on the SR90 is about 2" or 50mm in diameter. Can anyone verify that and/give an accurate measurement please.

Very good guess, I measure it at 48.5 mm on top of the knobs.

Mine arrived in todays mail. Ordered through Amazon from Outfitter Country in Toledo, OH. They and another Amazon vendor have the best price I have seen by about $50. They also had very fast shipping on it, I ordered it on the 2nd, it shipped by Priority Mail on the 3rd and was delivered in Nevada today, 12/6. Quite well packed too and shipping was less than $6.00.
The SR90 has immediately given every other flashlight in the house a inferiority complex. It shouts "size does matter"! The size is deceptive in the photos as everything is oversized. Proportionally it looks about like a 2D Maglite if there is nothing in the picture to compare it to. My 4D Maglite could only mutter "well at least I am taller". oo:
Some items not yet covered in the review or other posts in this thread so far as I know.
Mine arrived with the battery indicating full charge.
The striking bezel is not glued on. Mine unscrewed with moderate pressure and then the reflector lifts right out. Olight could make a orange peel finish reflector available it appears.
The shipping case is 14 5/8" by 8 3/8" by 4 5/8" external dimensions excluding hinges. latches and handle. The separator foam with the cutouts is very dense and stiff foam. Overall it looks like a lightweight version of some aluminum shell camera equipment or tool cases I have seen.
All threads are well lubed but I have ordered some silicone grease for maintenance of all of my flashlight threads and O rings. The manual says one spare O ring is included but I received two.
The lanyard or carrying strap holes in the yellow colored rings on the flashlight are 6mm in diameter. Another example of everything about this light being oversized.

Does anyone know whether or not the Titanium Innovations filter kit from Battery Junction would fit the SR90? It looks like the filters are about the correct size so the question is concerning the filter holder really and whether it would fit or could be adapted.

Thanks for posting, great review!
Well I have read everything you all had to say (I hope) and ordered a SR90 why because I have a need for a bright long throw. I'll know tomorrow if I made the right decision
You will not be disappointed- it's a monster thrower! Stays cool, long runtime, great built quailty. Just weighs a ton.
Well it finally arrived and OMG! it's the best thing since sliced bread I gave it a quick try out last night and it's unbelievable my son's house is 95 meters away from me and it lit it up like it was daylight the forest edge 250 meters and again you could see every thing clearly so no regrets and glad I bought it just need to wait for the winter dark nights to use it in anger!
