Waking at 1:30am I thought I'd see what the torch was like in proper darkness. I switched in on and selected the Turbo mode (2300 lumens). It pierced the darkness.
I put the torch down in the tent, lamp pointing down so as not to dazzle myself, and got up on my knees to better assess the distance it lit. It was amazing.
Taking the tent down this morning I noticed a hole burnt in my groundsheet. It took a few minutes for me to realise what had happened. In the less than two seconds the torch was on my groundsheet it had burnt a round hole clean through it. When I unpacked the torch at home I found residue of the groundsheet fabric on the lens. Trying it again I realised how hot the lens gets in Turbo mode.
It's important to state there is no warning of this anywhere in the torch instructions.
I am not pleased.
I WILL be informing Olight.
