Not a normal poster here, I normally read and learn from this forum more than I post but I come here several times a day. A year ago after doing some research here I bought a S1R Baton and I have carried and used it everyday since then, I drive a bus 5-6 days a week and use it every morning to pre trip my bus with it clipped on my hat bill and with the short days of winter I use it during post trip as well. I carry it in a pouch on my belt and I charge it every 2-3 days. I have not had any issues with it, it has worked perfectly and I have not replaced the battery nor ever had it go dead on me. My pre trip takes up to 30 minutes and post trip usually 15 or less. It also gets used any other time I need a light, I had never carried a flashlight with me daily until I bought this one and I will never be without a light again. It has a few dings and you can see some dust on the clip and lanyard hole but going strong. Hope you all have a great day.
