PRESENTATION.

It recently acquired taking advantage of a coupon of Gear best the O light SR40 Seeker. In principle it attracted me to it appeared to be a lantern contained measures to use a 26650 battery, with a lot of power and great autonomy. On the other hand O light seems a brand that not too complicated lanterns that develops, and few reports of bugs can be seen in their headlights, and that continues to be a guarantee for my as a buyer. Your designs with some exception are not spectacular, but are simple and Nice from my point of view. This along with the coupon discount, because admittedly the price is excessive without this type of discounts, made me decide in its acquisition.

Lantern arrives in typical plastic box of O light transparent, black with blue highlights. In own container of our site we find reflected much information about the characteristics of this headlamp, especially highlighting your five year warranty. The our site lodged inside without contact with the container, using two plastic pieces that fit into both ends of the our site. Included in the package as a base on which rests a plastic parts a black box with charger, lanyard, book o ring, a sheet with the mode of employment in English, warranty and a couple of brochures of the brand. O light 26650 battery has to be introduced in the own lantern, which so turned on during the road comes slightly unscrewed. Headlight manual can be downloaded from their website, according to foodanddrinkjournal.

In general the box is a container colorful, stylish and good for what would be a normal transport of this material. For a shipment of the type that carried out the stores in which we tend to buy, complete with wrinkles and bumps, that if lantern is impeccable.

Once we get the our site of its container, we are faced with a piece of 14.3 cm x 3.85 cm if we take into account its thickest part, being thus its thickness less than a C8, Predator or Warrior. This thickness decreases up to 3.1 cm in your body. Here if it would be thicker than those described previously. However this difference in thickness does not make it so comfortable or even more than the headlights above, and much more comfortable than other our sites 26650 which possess more thickness to be able to be used with 3AA as the SH3AA or the Xintd X ultra fire battery holder 3.

If the measuring it in its natural position will be supported fingers in the part more flat body, and diameter down to the 2.9.

The our site has a weight low in relation to their size, while when you insert the O light 26650 battery wins weight. Even so, remains a lantern of a moderate weight, and here is where again highlight differences with other more mundane 26650, for example, the difference with the X 3 is substantial. In the Seeker, despite enormous and heavy battery, we can see that their weight is somewhat lower than the known and comfortable Nitecore EA41 with 4 AA inside, and neither is far both known character tactical our sites. The following is an animated graphic comparing its weight with other common our sites, all of them with the battery inside.

In addition to a thickness and weight, headlight has a length that similarly can be considered contained. As a picture is worth a thousand words, I present some of them with popular our sites so you can get a real idea of its size.

Once seen the same size we proceed to describe it. The design is typical O light, nothing spectacular, simple, elegant and very functional. The Seeker is intended to be practical. Our site fits perfectly to the hand, and is fastened very easy even in humid conditions due to the knurling present in all of his body, except on the two sides where it is engraved the make and model. The button is accurate, fast and transmit quality. You can use it in tais land, and also does not turn on itself when we put it on a surface thanks to a few recesses in the dissipations fins located on the pill. Finally the our site has a stainless steel bezel that gives a touch of elegance and quality. In the tailcap also has knurling to facilitate the unscrewing in order to operate the battery, and the charging socket usb.

The our site as we have already mentioned comes ready to use with just press the tail cap. The first thing is that we are going to do is charge the battery. The Seeker herecibi do comes with a charger USA we can easily adapt to European plugs by means of an adapter. When we connect the our site charger, in both turns on a red light. When the battery is fully charged the light happens to be green.

The tail cap and you have seen it unscrews easily thanks to the Knurling, and through this process we access the inside of the body of the our site. Nothing special, except that when we want to remove the battery we see that it is very fair, but we not hear the friction characteristic of a battery that doesn’t get out. Turns out that in order to avoid slipping to the ground and accidentally damage to unscrew the Tail cap to battery, o light, and in my opinion guys have quite rightly placed a kind of tape similar to felt that does not cause difficulties when the battery is inserted and prevents falling to remove it (despite that the day is not far to my I fall…).

And now come to a point which will be an advantage for many and for others a drawback. The battery. It is a battery labeled as 4000 mAh o light and with a special circuit that allows you to have positive and negative connection (not logically connected between them) on his back. I prefer the non-protected batteries, but it is also true that protected I have have not given me any problem. In this case also referred to that manufacturer has implemented this circuitry is a trademark of warranty with which I’m most happy that even with my NCRB that not is who has made them the protection circuit. Returning to the topic of the Poles, this system allows you to charge the battery inside the own our site.

Batteries specifies that they have protection circuit, and that they are designed for high consumption devices. If I compare them with my fire trust fire (that they have not given me never no problem, everything must be said) and their theoreticians 5000 mAh, which according to the test that I have consulted on several sites do not pass the 4300, we can say that the finish, or at least the visible finish is a lot more quality in the O light… starting with the cover and ending with the positive teton (which though it is not very top) If it’s top button).

Trust fire batteries work perfectly in the Lantern. You are not going to allow is to make load because they lack positive on the back. In the same way, a 18650 battery will allow us to use the our site without any problems.

Our site is a Cree XM-L2 led and according to the manufacturer is able to provide 1100 lumens in high mode. My personal impression is that when you start it shines a lot. I am convinced that exceeds in brightness to any that I have used to compare projections against the Seeker. It is a style to the Nirecore EA41, but something more inundadora, and dare I say that something more pitcher. Compared to the Predator is less pitcher, and with a little less inundadora Warrior. Here are the projections against the wall and outside, who have certainly lost much quality when creating the Gif. I will replace it soon. The building seen in the background is 200 metres away and all come easily, especially when I have focused from a height, as it was in the courtyard of House. Logically the beam blue light not much less so in reality markup, but it gives us idea of our site throws more. Another aspect of performance that I liked is the well that dissipates heat, if you take him in high mode.

I have finally tried to test performance of the our site. Mark tells us that he is capable of offering us 1100 lumens in high, 250 in medium mode and 12 in low mode. To perform the test, and while I’m riding me another measuring system that is in process with the help of a colleague from the Forum, with a light meter I have measured Lux them at 1 meter of this lantern, in high mode, and in medium mode, data that is recorded in a small camcorder, of course, until the Chamber filled with memory and leave record (at 3 o’clock in the medium mode). How to put lights them one meter can lead to errors and wrong comparisons, the graph reflects the maximum power in the first minute and as goes down in proportion with the passage of time. The results have been very similar curves offered by o light. The conclusions is that in high mode the our site is regulation. Starts brutally and falls with the passage of the minutes, that if, by a light level more than acceptable until it depletes the battery. Another singing is medium mode, which remains practically stable with the passage of time, until it is over the memory of my camera, or according to o light, and even some review in English, up to seven hours. If the medium lasts 7 hours imagine bass… 100.

CONCLUSIONS.

I think it is a good job by O light, if we use that, and especially if we get it at a good price. Illuminates much, well dispelled, has high quality, it is designed in every detail to be used with ease and ergonomics. If we do not need us a charger to part. I liked in general except for two aspects. Perhaps it should be better regulated in high mode, and in addition, although it is not an excessive problem, always depends on buy an O light battery using the charger.
