Default OLight Weapon Lights

I'm a flashlight nut (what gun guy doesn't also love gadgets, flashlights & knives??) and was pleased to discover that OLight also makes a nice-looking, nicely-specc'd weapon light:


OLight PL2


OLight's seem to be pretty well regarded overall and I definitely want to get one of their 1x AAA lights for an EDC rotation.

The weapon lights have very good reviews on Amazon but I def wanted to check here & get everyone's take on them.....are these worth it?

It's tough trying to buy an X300 for every firearm I want a light on.

Olight does a good job shilling their lights and paying prominent Youtubers to "review" their wares.

Own 4 of them. Very much like the product, but customer service absolutely sucks if you have a problem like I did.

You could have just 2 X300As. One with the picatinny adapter and another with the universal. Swap lights as needed.

I read Olight was paying $600 per positive review with certain gun channels.

My mistake, $6000 per review. Plenty of online chatter about Iraqveteran8888 and Olight.

Make absolutely sure you can find a holster for your gun/light combination before you buy the light.
