Why Baton 3 Pro is the best light?

Baton 3 Pro is Best Light

There are many different types of lights at Olight. The i3E EOS and i1R 2 Pro are two great keychain lights they make. Like the Baton series, Olight also makes EDC lights. But that is not the end. There are weapon lights, tactical lights, high powered lights, general lamps and flashlights, and now knives and pens. Most of the time, if you need to power something up, Olight has what you need. The attention to detail is one of the things I like most about Olight. Overall the quality is excellent, and the anodizing and machining are excellent…they just know how to do a good thing.

This model, the Baton 3 Pro Small Rechargeable Flashlight , is the newest of the line. The Baton 3 Pro looks a lot like the 16340-based Baton 3, but is about the size of the 1865-based S2R Baton II. It’s a small EDC light that seems to have a lot of uses. It fits in your pocket, it’s chargeable, it’s easy to use and well… keep reading because I have to leave something out for the rest of the review.

What is in the box?

Some Olights come in large, heavy-duty two-part containers that fit one inside the other. The containers have bright images of light inside and the contents are neatly arranged. Other lights, like some of the EDC models, come in nice but not too fancy packaging that feels less like a display case and more like actual cardboard for recycling. One of those was where the Baton 3 Pro came from. It looks good, gets the point across, and doesn’t put too much in the box. When you slide out the shaped inner plastic tray, you can see:

When I first saw the Baton 3 Pro, I looked at my Warrior Mini 2 Cu and saw a lot of similarities. I like the Warrior, so I thought that was a good sign. But the Baton 3 Pro is not the same, although it looks similar to the Baton 3. It has a single sided electronic switch, whereas the Warrior had two switches and a rear port that could be used as a momentary or tactical switch. Because of this difference, the Baton 3 Pro falls into the Everyday Carry (EDC) category, while the Warrior could be considered a tactical light.

It fits in my pocket very well. The clip, which is already attached, can be worn in either direction, so you could use it on a baseball cap if you needed to. And when carried head up, it’s almost a deep carry.

The cane came with a bag that can be used for travel or storage. The bag feels like velvet and is a great addition. I had never seen the L-shaped bracket made of steel that came with it before. It has a sticky pad on one side so you can stick it to a good place (headboard, dashboard, desk, etc.). The tail of the cane is magnetic, so it adheres very well to the support. And since the tail is very flat, it can be easily stood up even when not magnetically attached to a surface.

The proximity sensor is another thing that Olight added to make it easier to use. When the Baton is in Turbo or High mode and sees the light come back, it will reduce the output to a few hundred lumens. This is not a new feature for Olight. Several of their older models already had proximity sensors. But on those, the sensor was cut off from the optics, which could be seen. On the Baton 3 Pro, there is no reserved area on the optics. There seems to be a thin ring around the TIR optics. This ring could be part of the sensor.

The Olight Baton 3 Pro is a good light to carry every day. It can be used for many different things such as hikes, walking the dog, in the garage, etc. And with its moonlight mode, it’s not too bad for late-night tasks like reading a book or finding your way to the bathroom in dim light.

Build quality and warranty

The Baton 3 Pro is made of aluminum, which is what most flashlights are made of. After that, Olight put a big layer of anodizing on it. Mine was a nice shade of OD green. As I write this review, I don’t have all the information I need on what colors will be available, but I’m sure Olight has some.

The Baton 3 Pro has the same knurled design as the Baton 3. I’m not a machining expert so I’m not sure what to call it, but it’s a set of big ridges that give you plenty of grip. Everything is very well cut and beveled, as you would expect from Olight. The clip uses a wider than usual attachment point, which should ideally keep it securely attached to the body.

The Baton 3 Pro comes with a great 5-year warranty from Olight.

In the past, most of Olight’s customers have been members of the Cool White fan club. But in recent years, an increasing number of enthusiasts have asked Olight to make neutral (or maybe warm) white versions. Sounds like Olight is listening now because some new models have come out with CW and NW, but both are still 70 CRI. One of them is the Baton 3 Pro, which lets you choose between Cool White (5700-6700K) and Neutral White (4000-5200K). For this review, Olight sent a CW version. On the bezel, it says both CCT and CRI rating, which is 70 Ra. The CW rating is also written on the side of the head.

The bezel is more of a clamping ring for the TIR optic as it sits flush with the top of the head. I can’t really tell if it’s made of plastic or aluminum, but it looks like it is. TIR optics look a bit different, which is probably because the proximity sensor gives it a way to find reflecting light. As already stated, this is a different design than what was used before. There is no longer a small cutout for the sensor on the edge of the optics. The TIR does a good job of creating a nice, even hotspot with just a little bit of spillage. There doesn’t seem to be much change in the color of the light. Although Olight hasn’t said for sure, it looks like a Luminus SST40. Opple’s readings also seem to be in line with what I’ve seen on other SST40s.
