    The only decent O-Light products are the i3 and the Arkfield. Every other O-Light tactical light, WML, and EDC light I've used has been dogshit and their chargers annoyingly magnetize to everything. That magnetic top is gonna be a b***h when shit gets stuck on it like slings and carabiners. Time will tell, but if its anything else like they've tried to push over the years its likely trash.

      I just check in during the sales to spin the lucky wheel. They used to have sales every month so I've almost got enough of the O-coins to get a free Arkfield.

      I just check in during the sales to spin the lucky wheel. They used to have sales every month so I've almost got enough of the O-coins to get a free Arkfield.

      I did a spin back in August and got a Warrior X3. The Olight products I've bought were the following:
      i3T
      Baton
      Valkyrie (Mini)
      Baldr (Mini and Pro)
      Arkfield
      Orb

      The i3T is a pretty solid light on sale, for a AAA pocket light that you can throw anywhere for $10, it works. Baton is a pile of shit and the case it came in cracked; barely holds a charge. The mini weapon lights mounts are dogshit and I had to buy new ones cause Olight is dildos with RMA and warranty. The fullsize lights are ok, but you can get a Streamlight that has better aftermarket and holster support for the same price. Arkfield is a useful light cause its form factor is good for throwing in my pocket next to my gay cloud sign- I mean vape - UV light is a bonus and its magnet isn't moronicly placed. Orbs are a novelty, but when they drain, they're pretty much worthless.

      The Warrior X3 is an ok light, really bright and can spot light. Magnet and size is a pain in the ass, the ribbing for her pleasure makes it hard as frick to work it as a WML. The glass breaker on the bevel is a joke and shouldn't even be there, and the magnet on the tail cap is schizophrenic on deciding how the charger wants to be on it. The best Olight products are either multi light solutions or non rechargeable.

        Their AAA lights are very practical, bright for the size and you can use rechargeable NiMH batteries. Personally I still carry bigger lights with more output but that's more a product of my autism than necessity. A tiny Chinese flashlight today is more powerful than the tights I grew up with

          Oh yeah, I remember being a kid my first pocket flash light was an old maglight mini that barely lasted 20 minutes it felt with those crappy red label sunbeam dollar store batteries. For the size and the clip, the i3T is nice. I can stick it on a hat and have an impromptu head light which is why its a good product when its on sale. I3T is my go to spare light that I keep in my backpack, car, and give to friends for gifts.

        The Streamlight won't also randomly die and their batteries won't explode and set you on fire. The first weapon light I ever bought was a PL-2 Valkyrie, and shortly after I bought a Baldr Pro with the green laser. The Valkyrie was only on the gun for maybe 100 rounds, and now it makes a really disturbing buzzing sound when it's on. The Baldr only intermittently turns on and sometimes takes a second to turn off when the switch is pressed. Needless to say I don't buy their dogshit anymore, I only use Streamlights.

          Are not covered under warranty?

          • 1 month ago
            Anonymous

            When my Valk Mini mount broke on my G23, I contacted Olight and they said the mount wasn't covered under warranty. The Orb was, though, and they offered to send me a new one for the cost of shipping - which I said frick that to since they're cheap as balls and it was a novelty for my then job. Olight is weirdly selective with what and how they service. They sent me a new case for my Baton, but demanded I pay for the PL-2's mounting hardware.

            Oh probably, but I read alot of similar horror stories online and decided to just eat the loss rather than go through the warranty process just to probably get another POS back, especially since I don't think Olight had local warranty service in Canada at the time. I don't want to sound like a Streamlight shill, but my experience has been the complete opposite with them, thousands of rounds through rifles, PCCs, shotguns and pistols without having them so much as flicker. I'd go through their warranty service if something ever happened, but unless you bought a really expensive Olight (if those even exist) I'd just advise people to cut their losses and move on

              I often buy broken TLR-1s, 2s, and 8s off ebay and just turn them in for warranty to flip them. Streamlight is like Hi-Point when it comes to warranty - give them a legit serial and they send you a box, wait a couple of weeks and you get a brand new thing you sent out.

                I'm not surprised that they're good. The only time I ever interacted with their customer service was for a replacement tape switch, since I broke mine by trying to pull it off the adhesive strip on my rifle with moron gorilla force. There was no option to buy another one with a Canadian address on the site, so I asked how I could order one, and they just replied the next day saying they shipped me one for free

      It doesn't have different color dots, that's just so you can tell the battery status.

    It looks like a great way to separate a fool from his money. Imagine having to plug in your gun all the time like a phone. Actually, this product is probably aimed at the phone slaves who don't see a problem with that.

      It's probably aimed at the people who already own a olight on their gun.

          At least olight has the lifetime warranty now. When it does fail you'll get a new one.

            >the lifetime warranty now
            This is a general legal fyi, nothing to do with olight specifically, but just for decades now I've seen "lifetime warranty" thrown around more and more as this top tier thing. It's not.
            1. Courts have a very, very strong presumption (when it's not outright banned) against "perpetual contracts". Basically no contract will ever bind a person for a lifetime. People have this idea that "lifetime" means THEIR lifetime, but that's not how it works, rather it's the "lifetime of the product". Which is... whatever the company says it is unless specified otherwise. If the company says "lifetime warranty on Gizmo A" and then two years later discontinues it for Gizmo B, guess what that's end of lifetime for Gizmo A. In contracts you want specific numbers for performance, ie, "5 year warranty". That means 5 years, specifically. "Lifetime" has no fixed meaning except that it's not your lifetime, so you have to argue about it in court.

            2. Civil remedies are almost always money, not specific performance. Ie, worst case you go to court and win and the company says "well we don't do that anymore" your damages will generally be capped at whatever the thing was worth when you bought it. So your $200 item is something maybe you get $200 for, except you had to go to the trouble and cost of going to court.

            3. Bankruptcy means you can be sol. If the company vanishes that's it.

            tl;dr: don't let yourself be suckered into buying something you wouldn't have otherwise by a "lifetime warranty".

              I've never had to go to court to get a company to honor their warranty. I'm sure it happens, but if I'm looking at two products that are similar, and one has a more comprehensive warranty, that can be a deciding factor. One of my Holosun sights failed, and it would have been out of warranty. But it was cobranded by Primary Arms, and they replaced the optic at no cost to me (and I had even purchased it used). Of course a company can always dissolve, but if you do your research and there aren't hundreds of horror stories about the company denying warranty claims, the coverage is a bonus.

                There are certainly non-legal factors at play. Decent companies care about their promises and reputation regardless, particularly in highly competitive areas (and holy shit are there a billion gun sight options). Just as it might not be worth our while to go to court, it's not necessarily worth THEIR while to deny a customer even if it was flat out the customer's fault. If it's a $200 retail and $100 in manufacturing cost to them item why risk a bad story/review? But sometimes companies do yank products/services if they get a strong enough position or just are forced to, so I just wanted to point out the "lifetime warranty" thing is basically a marketing point. Doesn't mean marketing points don't matter though.

            Right now the warranty is for lights and knives, and even then the reachable batteries/cases are only covered for 2 years. Until they update the policy there is no explicit coverage for the optic itself. Not all warranties are equal, make sure to read the fine print. And definitely don't beta test for these companies, wait a while after any new release.

    I change my two RMR batteries and my holochink 509 batteries once a year. I carry one of the three daily and the RMRs don't even have shake awake. I do this as a routine but I've never had a battery actually die in 12 months.

      I do too because otherwise they last so long you can easily forget, best to just do it on your birthday or something. But even a year is massive overkill, it's a better safe then sorry thing.

    Assume that your gun just has it's place, you mount it, and never have to think about batteries ever again.

      Yeah, ever again, for a few years until the non user-serviceable battery no longer holds a charge and the entire optic is useless. Built-in batteries are an anti-consumer cancer

        This, a hundred times.
        Companies (starting with Apple because of fricking course) started pushing for non-user-replaceable batteries in the name of "better weatherproofing" and "thinner and more streamlined design" but the real reason was always extremely simple.
        Unlike all of the other electronic components, the battery is an explicitly consumable item. It WILL degrade and fail, and when that happens, 99% of consumers will just buy a new product.

    It seems like a bad sign when the official announcement barely shows the optic in use and relies on rapid cuts when it does. The unfortunate downside to optics-ready slide cuts becoming the standard is that companies will flood the market with garbage sights to fill those slide cuts, and inexperienced shooters will fall for it.

    Anybody who thinks about this won't think about it very long. Unfortunately, olight is a weird cult / ecosystem of morons who only know that the light they bought from olight is 20% better than what you can get from Walmart. If they did any research, they'd find out about all the other, better brands but that's asking too much

    Anyway they're going to sell millions of these
