Default Flashlight Review, *Olight T25 Tactical



I purchased the Olight T25 Tactical from 4 Sevens.com

Shipping is very fast. 3 days to Socal.

Uses a Cree XRE Q5. The tint on my light is very white. Very smooth beam due to it's full OP reflector. The other Olights I have use the hybrid half OP and SMO reflector.

This is the Tactical version which uses a forward clickie. Has momentary on off. Will remember the last setting when shut off. The T25 can be locked out by slightly turning the rear clickie counter-clockwise.

The 3 different light levels, Strobe and SOS can be accesed by turning the bezel counter-clockwise then clockwise. It's a very simple UI.

The finish is Type III Hard Anodize in black. No mis-match of color. The finish is excellent, I give the grade A+.

The fit is excellent. Smooth threads. O-rings lubed. I give the grade A+.

Powered by 2AA batteries.

Voltage: 1.1v - 4.2v. Do not run 2 14500's or you will fry the light!

The Olight T25 uses a clip. The bezel faces up.

Comes with a holster, lanyard, spare o-rings, spare rubber boot.


Pros

Uses common AA batteries.

Very well machined. The fit and finish.

Forward clickie.

Easy UI.


Cons

Wish it had a clip that faced the bezel down.

Price.

Hot spot slightly off centered.


I have always liked Olights. The Olights are always manufactured A+ IMO. I never have had a bad Olight. I have a total of 5 different ones.

Rear of the Cree module.



The front bezel connects to the top of the battery tube.



The clip can be removed by unscrewing the knurled nut. Make sure you take the o-ring off first!





Forward clickie, momentary on off.

Yeah man, who needs so many flashlights? Flashlights are awesome and all but how many Cree Q5's can one guy have? Get some HID's or wait for the new MC-E's.
