The Olight Baton 3 is an upgraded version of the popular S1R Baton II and still has the same compact design but now offers 1200 lumens output on the highest setting, before dropping down to 300 lumens after 1 minute, 30 seconds to prevent the LED from overheating and is available in black or red.
The Baton 3 can only be powered using the included Olight tailored IMR16340 550 mAh lithium-ion battery type. The battery is recharged inside the torch using the included magnetic charging cable. Simply connect the magnet to the base of the Baton 3 and plug the USB end into a computer or suitable adaptor with at least 1 A output. The light on the cable will go red to show charging is in progress and turn green once charging is complete.
A new upgraded feature is the battery level indicator built into the side switch that lets you know when the battery needs charging. A green light indicates above 60% power, an orange light indicates 10-60 % power, a red light indicates less than 5-10% power and a red blinking light means less than 5% power and that the torch needs to be charged.
Utilising a high performance cool white LED and TIR optic lens, the beam produces a wide, balanced hot spot with an increased maximum beam distance of 166 metres.
As before the Baton 3 features five brightness levels and strobe, and the torch is turned on and off with a single press of the side mounted push button. Select the brightness level with the torch turned on by holding the switch to cycle through low, mid and high in turn, whilst the moonlight mode of 0.5 lumens can be accessed directly when the torch is off by pressing and holding down the switch. Turbo is accessed by a quick double press when the light it off or on.
Strobe is activated by three quick presses while the torch is on. The memory function will remember the last mode used for moonlight, low, mid, high and turbo.
The Baton 3 contains two timer settings; long timer (9 minutes) and short timer (3 minutes). Double click and hold the side switch while the light is on to enter this setting. One blink indicates the 3 minutes mode, and two blinks indicates the 9 minutes mode.
A handy lockout function prevents the torch from being accidentally activated and is accessed with the light off by pressing and holding the switch for 2 seconds to lock it and the same again will unlock it. The Baton 3 also features a dual purpose magnetic tail cap, so you can use it as a hands-free work light, and an innovative two way pocket clip makes it easy to carry the torch on clothing or a backpack.
