Perfect Companion for your Perun Mini, Pocket Lights, and Obulbs.

If you are new to the Olight world, I welcome you to the community. As a relatively new member, let me first concede that I am a box-opening flashlight user, not solely a collector. My brother-in-law introduced me to Olight when he sold me a bright red S1R II Baton light. I loved the wrist lanyard, golden pocket clip/accents, magnetic tail charging, side button, brightness, functions, etc. It became my everyday carry light, my backup Cub Scout camping light, and rarely was absent from my pocket. Wanting more, I found my way to the website, several holiday sales, and now I have a wife that questions my flashlight pseudo-addiction.

More than a flashlight company, Olight has provided solutions to problems I did not know I had. As an example, I wanted a headlamp for camping/hiking activities. The company provided a neat adjustable Velcro patch for their Perun Mini light, which paired nicely with the included velcro headband attachment. The 90-degree angled flashlight, bright beam, beam function modes, the adjustable patch, and the ability to place it around my hat made it one of my prime camping lights. I loved the ability to add the headband to my hat and adjust the light/patch as needed. On one of my favorite trips, it proved invaluable when the scouts slept inside a cave at Cumberland Caverns.

During a recent visit by my mother, we decided to take a few walks with our Boston Terrier. I grabbed a hat, the headlamp/headband combo, and we walked around the neighborhood. She mentioned that she would love an angled light, like the Perun Mini, but preferred a neck light. She wanted the angled beam to help light the path while walking her dogs and checking on her outside animals at home. Unfortunately, she stated that she disliked headlamps. So, I turned to the Olight Facebook community and found a post by Mr. Cotton, who suggested pairing an Olink with 550 Paracord and simple plastic breakaway Barrel connectors.
