We're probably one of the few Youtube channels that are NOT in the Olight affiliate program – but we still really like this torch. As long as you're not using it right next to your compass…

I do have two olight torches, they have the magnetic base, but when I "put them away" I give the base cap a full turn so the torch cannot switch on. Just an observation.
