Torches

Here are 2 torches I recommended and use on a daily basis. Links below include free shipping. If the links have expired just google them by name.

Top pick. Olight SR 1 Baton – 0.5 – 900 lumen Run time 15days on 0.5 lumen down to 50minutes on max setting. Although not a head torch it can easily clip onto a cap to be used as a head torch

Olight H1R Nova - 2 – 600 Lumen (head torch and hand held) Run time 6 days on 2 lumen down to 80 minutes on 600 Lumen

Great features

  • Compact – rugged - waterproof
  • 4 brightness settings
  • Massive run time on low settings
  • Very bright setting if needed
  • Strobe function
  • Flat tail cap allows then to stand upright
  • Magnetic base very useful
  • USB recharging
  • Belt clip and lanyard

Note

The S1 Baton and H1 Nova are not rechargeable – make sure you select the SR1 Baton or HR1 Nova for rechargeable versions.

They function with the supplied CR123R (rechargeable) and the standard CR123A disposable batteries. These batteries are not cheap so would recommend extra cost to buy the rechargeable torches.

EBay shopping

These can be found marginally cheaper elsewhere – but most don’t ship from USA and NZ Post You Shop will not send them to NZ because of the magnet in the base of the torch. Don’t be concerned about shipping from China…Olight’s are made in China.
