They say big things come in small packages.  But that goes double for the Olight S1 Baton.  This light is the smallest light ever produced by Olight, and they do not disappoint.  It has all the attention to detail you would expect from a much larger flashlight.  There is so much packed into this tiny light, you just have to see it to believe it.

The Olight S1 baton Flashlight features 3 different brightness levels, moonlight mode and strobe.  Plus, as an added bonus, it comes with 2 different time functions,  3 and 9 minutes.  If you can believe it, this tiny light, at its brightest setting, pumps out 500 lumens!  Yes, you read that right, 500 lumens!  This is one of the most powerful lights for its size.  With the middle function putting out 80 lumens, and the low function shining with 8 lumens, this little light has chops.

This light really is one that you need to see to believe.  It’s small enough to fit in your first, but able to live up to anything you can throw at it.  With an aerospace grade aluminum body, this dynamite light can handle the most rugged of situations.  Don’t be deceived by its modest size!  This light has a place on any bug out bag or camping trip.  It’s small size make it an easy carry, while its powerful beam makes it just as useful as a lot of other, larger, lights.

The tail on the S1 also features a powerful magnet and removable pocket clip.  Easy to pull off in a hurry.  So what you lose in size, you more than makeup for in accessibility.  Not only do I suggest clipping this on any bug out bag, it would also be right at home on any keychain.  Your new EDC could easily be an LED.  With the days getting shorter, and darker earlier, it’s important to be prepared for anything.   As winter draws closer, more and more people are finding themselves leaving work in the dark.  The sun has set by the time you clock out, so why not be prepared for that?  Clip this on your keychain and light up those long cold walks to the car.  Get it for a loved one for that added piece of mind.

The Holidays are also just around the corner.  They will be here before you know it, and this little light would make the perfect stocking stuffer.  Faces won’t be the only thing lighting up this holiday.
