review: olight S1

veröffentlicht am 19. September 2015 in Allgemein, Coupons und Codes, Reviews von

Hello my friends!

Last week i received a little black bag (i thought s Lithium cells arrived…)

but within was: the new Olight S1


inside i found:

the flashlight and a lanyard

(a good one actually with a little needle thingie attached to make it easy to mount it on the light)


also a user manual in a lot of languages – but with every information needed:



let it dance!


just to imagine how small that light is i put it inbetween a mighty 18650 cell, the Olight S10R (my actual old EDC), a AA-size Eneloop and the 16340 cell i used for testing


some detail shots…

the retaining ring has a metalic blue anodisation, as has the ring around the sideswitch


the sideswitch is just a little elevated – but you can find the rubber sideswitch quite easy
(the rubber switch is a step back imho from the design of SxxR series)


the built quality is very high, knurling and laser etching are very good


the threads on the battery tube are lubed and square cut


a loot inside the tube does not show much…


in the tailcap is a strong! magnetwhich can also be detached.


i said strong….


the bright side has no classical reflector, but a TIR lens


there is no front lens – the plastic TIR is directly exposed to whatever you have in your pocket…

one can see the wires behind and also solder spots 😉


the LED is perfectly centered in this view


that is actual a bond wire at 11 o´clock!


before assembling


negative comes first! (reverse polarity protection works fine – ask why i know…)


the nice pocket clip can be mounted both ways


i like to carry my EDC safe from keys and other things in my clock-pocket!


but reversing the clip makes a great headlight..


… and thats why headlights are not liked by co-workers


i also made some beamshots on my home cinema canvas

ISO 800, 1/3 sec


outside the light can show its perfect hot”spot” and nice tint (on the cold side)*


to show the UI and a slightly disturbing thing i made a video:


i also took measures in my lightbox and the amperes drawn:

standby6,2 µA



what i miss:

  • the button from the SxxR
  • warmer tint
  • 3A TURBO!



due to the tinyness and the big amount of useful light its my new EDC


PS: a great discount is available at banggood – please contact me for details

(THX 4 the sample!)
