My light arrived yesterday. Nice sturdy light, bigger than my S2R, but still very pocketable, which I have it in my front pocket it right now.

I tried it with my older Olight base charger and it worked just fine. It works in the typical Olight fashion with the side button cycling you through the different setting. The tailcap switch is very nice, you can partially depress for momentary light or click all the way for on.

I like the ability to switch the clip, which I have mine setup for button up carry. It lights up a room well on high setting. I haven't used it on the turbo setting, probably this weekend get it out early morning and play around with it some.

So far very pleased.

Truly a nice light.  Good quality.  Did it come with an 18650 battery as well?  What type of 18650 batteries do you have?

Yes, it came with a Olight 3.6 volt 18650 3500mah battery. This flashlight no longer uses the Olight proprietary batteries, but any rechargable can be used and charged in it.

I haven't tried any other batteries, but next Friday I'm going to order a couple and when they get in give them a try.

I'm going to suggest Mountain Electronics:

Mountain Electronics

The guy that runs it is named Richard.  He has a excellent reputation on BLF.  I just ordered a couple of IMR 18350 batteries for the Nitecore EC11 I ordered off Amazon.  I ordered the batteries Saturday afternoon, they shipped on Saturday and they are out for delivery today!  That's good service.  Richard doesn't sell junk batteries like you'll find on Ebay and other places.  He only sells the high quality name brand batteries (and other stuff).  And you'll see in a lot of the battery listings links to HK (not the gun maker) that does reviews of batteries on BLF.

He is now the only place I will purchase batteries.  China has a habit of making cheap cells and wrapping them in name brand wrappers.  China also dramatically inflates the mAh on their batteries.  Richard on the other hand is a trusted source.  Otherwise he'd not have the reputation he does on BLF.

It has been not quite six months, but so far the light is holding up well.

The finish is holding up good considering I keep it right next to my pocket knife. I throw it on the charger about every three weeks to top it off. It has worked every time I have needed it.

I have the side button set to the low setting so I can use it for looking around in bags, desk drawers, vehicles, etc. without a blinding light. The tailcap is set to go straight to the 1,500 lum setting when clicked on. I have used that a few times, once when walking out on the deck and Oreo started her deep growl, I clicked on the light and by the fence was a cat. It is amazing how quickly a cat can get over a fence when 120+lbs Great Dane is coming at it. I'm just thankful Oreo doesn't realize she could easily clear the four feet fence.

Anyway, so far very pleased with the light and it has more than met my expectations and needs.

Yep. I have it in my pocket as I type this. I have two of them, with one by the bed and one on me. It hasn't let me down yet. I like the side button because I have it set for the low light setting, so I can click it on when I'm looking for items in the car, etc. and not blind myself. Yet, the tail cap button is my go to button for quick light. Nothing like 1,500 lumens to light up an area.

I place it on charge once a month, usually takes less than on hour before it goes green and it hasn't went dead on me yet.

One very big word of caution, I did find one design flaw, which I wrote the company about. I have a habit of sticking my keys partially in my pocket and leaving part of them hang out (I know I'm weird). I did that and wasn't paying any attention and noticed my leg getting uncomfortably hot. I quickly pulled my keys our and the flashlight thinking maybe I had accidentally turned it on, but it was off. What I had down was place one of the keys across the back magnetic charge part of the flashlight and it was drawing current and heating up the keys and light. I no longer put my keys in that pocket and haven't had that issue since, but I just wanted to share that word of warning. I now only carry that flashlight and my pocket knife in that pocket with them both clipped to the pocket.

I will add a footnote, if you want to avoid the whole potential magnetic issue, the M2T is the light to go with. 1200 lumens with 1-18650 (900 lumens with two CR-123A). It has a rubber tail cap switch.
