Olight is running a new Flash Sale, thru 11:59pm ET 9/25/2020. The flash sale just kicked off, and there are quite a few decent deals.
In a nutshell, this flash sale features deals on:
- Warrior Mini (NEW, 1500 lumens max, 18650 battery)
- Perun Mini headlamp
- Bike Headlight RN (NEW)
- i3T EOS (180 lumens, AAA battery)
- Mega Pack
As with Olight’s past flash sale, this one focuses on limited run color schemes and new product introduction.
I own an i3T EOS and think it’s a good keychain/pocket-sized model, and received a Warrior Mini that I’ve started to test out.
Olight’s Flash Sales offer big discounts and also “freebie” tiers, more on that below.
To start off, the Warrior Mini is a new release, available in black, tan, and camo color schemes.
It’s described as a defensive flashlight with tactical features, but beside all that, it’s designed to be rugged and durable, and features magnetic tailcap charging.
The included 18650 battery is a customized battery to allow for the magnetic charging. It’s worth noting that the charger included with the Warrior Mini can operate at a faster charging rate than the other Olight chargers I received with previous purchases and review samples, which is convenient given the 3500 mAh capacity of the included battery.
The light is a compact size (4.19″) and is said to be strong enough to survive a 1.5 meter drop. It is also said to be capable of surviving immersion in 2 meters-deep water.
The Warrior Mini has a multi-mode side switch towards the front, and a tailcap with 2-step switch.
In the factory-fresh configuration, a soft press of the tailcap switch turns the flashlight to medium brightness, and a hard press turns it to max brightness. If you hold the button, it triggers “momentary” mode. Or, you can switch to an alternate configuration where a soft (half) press turns on the max brightness mode and a full press turns on strobe mode.
This is a feature-rich compact rechargeable flashlight.
I tend to be turned off by “tactical” or “defensive” marketing claims, but the tailcap does seem to be a convenient complement to the multi-mode side switch.
Sale Price: $56 for tan or black, $63 for camo
One final note about the Warrior Mini – it is VERY grippy. If you have ever been disappointed with metal-bodied flashlights slipping out of your hands, this one is for you.
The Warrior Mini and some of the other deals are also available bundled with an i3T EOS in red, which is on sale separately for $16.46.
The i3T EOS is a single AAA flashlight that delivers 180 max lumens.
I don’t know if I would take part in this flash sale just for just one of these AAA flashlights, since free shipping requires a $48.97+ order, but I would definitely add one to a larger order, or ensure I snagged one as part of a bundle price.
The Warrior Mini bundle, for example, is $61.14 for tan or black, and $67.14 for camo. So, you’re getting this neat little light for just $4-5 more than just the Warrior Mini by itself.
I bought a tan i3T EOS via Amazon back in June, at its regular price of $22. $16 and change is a good price, much less as part of a bundle is even better.
The Perun Mini LED headlamp is also on sale.
Following are some specs, the same as when the Perun Mini launched a few months ago.
- 1000 max lumens
- Dual-direction clip
- Magnetic base
- Weighs 1.83 oz
- Adjustable brightness output
- Includes a rechargeable battery and charger
- IPX8 waterproof rating
For this flash sale, the Perun Mini is available in desert tan finish.
Sale Price: $49
There’s a new bike-mounted light, the Olight and MagicShine co-branded RN-1500.
It’s said to be suited for mountain biking and road cycling, and can deliver 1500 lumens max with a rechargeable 21700 5000 mAh battery.
It fits handlebars with 28.6 to 35mm diameters, with 3 strap sizes included with the light.
Sale Price: $56
The new bike light is also available bundled with a SEEMEE 30 lumen red LED safety light for $58.14.
MEGA Pack 1 gives you a Perun Mini headlamp, a red i3T EOS, and one of each of the new Warrior Mini lights, for $205.05.
There’s also a smaller MEGA pack with a Perun headlamp, red i3T EOS, and black Warrior Mini, for $103.11.
