Since Baton 3 Pro was launched on O-Fan Day in September, it has been selling very well and is highly recommended by O-fans. What upgrades does it have compared with S2R Baton II? Why is this EDC flashlight such a hot seller? These questions are worth in-depth consideration, so let's discuss!
First, I will give you an introduction to Baton 3 Pro and its many features and upgrades.
Baton 3 Pro is the brand-new, upgraded version of S2R Baton II. It is more powerful, with up to 1,500 lumens, an increase of 30% from the S2R Baton II. Compared with the previous proximity sensor, the new and technologically advanced hidden one is designed to increase the flashlight's light output and beam quality during daily use, while automatically reducing the brightness when the sensor detects an obstruction nearby. Also, with two color temperature options, cool white and neutral white, Baton 3 Pro meets a variety of needs and preferences. The enlarged, concave side switch makes it more comfortable and easier to operate with less chance of accidental operation. Its 3200mAh 18650 rechargeable lithium-ion battery can be fully charged in 3.5 hours using Olight's signature USB magnetic charging cable. You can run Baton 3 Pro for up to incredible 120 days. The included L-shape stand is great for storing the flashlight conveniently after use. The widened and lengthened two-way clip is more secure when clipping to a pocket or backpack. The new body knurling design is both more secure and more comfortable to grip. With its many upgraded features, Baton 3 Pro is simply a better EDC flashlight.
Next, let me highlight why I think Baton 3 Pro is selling so well!
Among its many upgrades, the increase in brightness definitely stands out. Compared with the 1150-lumen max output of S2R Baton II, Baton 3 Pro has a max output of 1500 lumens, an increase of 30%. However, despite having much higher performance than any other Baton series light, it's still the same size as S2R Baton II and has the same great form factor. You can carry Baton 3 Pro all day with ease, benefitting from its significantly increased output with no increase in bulk.
Hidden Proximity Sensor
As we know, the S2R Baton II is already a favorite EDC light among O-fans due to its lumen output, size, and run times, but the new hidden proximity sensor in Baton 3 Pro is really hard to beat! The hidden proximity sensor can increase safety by automatically dimming the light when the sensor detects an obstruction nearby. It is more user-friendly and safer while offering increased performance. The hidden proximity sensor provides benefits the previous proximity sensor didn't. It's more aesthetically pleasing, but more importantly, it's out of the way of the beam and not interrupting the reflector or lens.
Choice of Cool White or Neutral White
Unlike previous lights in the Baton Series, Baton 3 Pro is offered in your choice of two color temperatures. For many EDC flashlight enthusiasts, having the option of Cool White (CW) or Neutral White (NW) is definitely a game changer. Some prefer CW because they like cool, crisp light, and some pick NW since they love the warmer, less harsh light it provides. These two color temperature options allow O-fans the ability to further tailor their light to their needs and wants.
Three Colors to Choose From
In response to O-fans' requests, we offer Baton 3 Pro in three different colors: black, OD green and desert tan. This allows you to pick your preferred color or try something different, adding some variety to your EDC items.
Thicker & Stronger Pocket Clip
One of the smaller and sometimes overlooked new features of Baton 3 Pro will actually improve EDC use quite a bit. The thicker and stronger pocket clip is something you will appreciate every day. Compared with S2R Baton II, the upgraded pocket clip of Baton 3 Pro is much sturdier and resistant to bending, as well as more visually appealing. With this upgraded clip, Baton 3 Pro will hold tight to your pocket or pack, so it's always there when you need it.
Baton 3 Pro has what you need and want in an EDC flashlight, and it's a significant upgrade over the already great S2R Baton II. Can you share some ideas in the comments below about why you think Baton 3 Pro is so popular?
