Olight has kicked off their Father’s Day sale with several new flashlights and promos.
This time around, it looks like there are two new models and one or two new color options.
The Seeker 4 Mini is one of the new models, featuring a cool or neutral white light and UV emitter, IPX8 and waterproof rating.
It looks to be especially compact and is powered with a customized 18350 battery that charges via the magnetic tailcap charger.
Next, there’s a Warrior Mini 2 in red lava camo color scheme.
The Warrior Mini 2 is taller than less-featured 18650-powered lights, but slimmer than lights engineered for 21700-sized Li-ion batteries.
Here are my then-early thoughts on the Olight Warrior Mini 2 – Olight Warrior Mini 2 Flashlight Review.
The Seeker 4 Mini and Warrior Mini 2 aren’t really suited for my needs/EDC wants, but then I spotted this i3E EOS in blue.
The i3E is a fantastic mini 1x AAA LED flashlight, and good introduction to Olight.
If you’ve ever placed an order from Olight before, you’ll find this in your shopping cart as a free gift item. And if it’s all you might be considering, it costs $5 to ship.
You can buy the i3E anytime, usually for $9.95 at Amazon or elsewhere, or login to Olight and get this blue model for $5 ($0 plus $5 shipping).
Lastly, there’s also a new Javelot Mini, in blue.
I have been using the new Olight Javelot 2 Pro a lot this month, mainly to scan the tree line when watering the plans at night. I spotted a pair of deer in the weeds, and so I scan the area at a distance to ensure there aren’t any surprises.
The Javelot 2 Pro is nice, but it’s a bit large, and not very pocketable.
The new Javelot Mini grabbed my attention with its small size, high output, and long throw distance. It’s powered by a 2040 mAh 18500-sized battery, which is new to me.
Upon seeing this, I dropped my Olight contact a note and requested a test sample. There are a bunch of new-to-me features aside from the stout form factor, such as a vibrating low battery alert.
Olight also says this is their first EDC flashlight with a round light source, “providing for a less harsh, more balanced beam.”
This is going to be an interesting one to test.
If any of these models strike your fancy, check out the flash sale. If they don’t, next month’s might have different product introductions and deals.
I was going to skip the flash sales for a month, but the Javelot Mini pulled me right back in. If this delivers a Javelot Pro-like experience but in much smaller and lighter package, it’ll be a winner.
It’s priced higher than my favorite Olight EDC models – the Baton 3 and Baton 3 Pro, but looks to have a step up in features. The Mini is also available in black and olive green.
Olight’s Father’s Day flash sale ends at 11:49pm ET on 6/8/2023.
Olight fans know the drill – supplies of some of the models are limited, and there are a couple of “free with purchase” tiers.
The flashlights mentioned above are the ones I found most interesting, but there are a couple of others, such as a new O’Pen Mini pen. Contrary to what I had assumed, this one is just a pen.
It looks like Olight is diving deeper into the EDC space; this sale also includes a new utility knife, folding knife, mini utility tool, and pocket tool bundle.
