1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    Nice torch and a very good price, does look like it requires a special olight custom battery if you need a 2nd battery or a replacement though.

    IRRC , It’ll run on any battery’s (cr-123a) but will only charge on the docking station with the proprierty or “custom” battery .

    yes you can buy extra “custom” battery’s .

    torch is 5yr no quibble warranty

    batteries* are 1 year usually but as this is a custom included may be covered for the full 5 as well.

    Not quite what I was getting at mate...40% off something dont make it a bargain if it's a pile of turd!
    I meant why is it a good torch to have :facepalm::D
    It says in the advert that it is a "customized battery"
    Does this mean it's a sealed unit or that the 18650 is in some sort of holder that means only specific battery packs to the product can be used?

    By the time everyone's done the homework for you, it'll be over.

    They're good, they're easily worth the money the battery question is answered in the details.

    The point is to let other people know, one of the questions you asked had already been answered. The other is open ended, depends on your requirements.

    Not a case of not being bothered, I've been fairly busy.

    As for not being bothered, it's a bit like me pming you a while ago because I have a faulty jukebox. You never bothered to reply to a very basic question, something along the lines of "know anything about jukeboxes?". Call it karma if you like.

    Ciao.

    Dave

    The reason why it’s cheap is because there appears to be a “Mk 2” version of the torch out now, so this is a discontinued model that Olight are clearing out.

    I don’t have any experience of this particular model, but I do have a couple of other Olight torches, including the S2A Baton and they are fantastic, so this looks like a bargain to me.

    Anybody into torches and familiar with Olight would know that this is a bargain. I would say if you’re unfamiliar with the brand, and are wanting a top quality torch, just buy this one.

    You can buy more batteries, but if you don’t get the Olight one, then you would lose the ability to the torch with the supplied charging system.

    Thank you for the reply and why it is such a good deal for those of us who wouldn't have a clue :thumb:
    It's a soon to be obsolete model.
    Olite are a fantastic brand as you have experience and it's a good deal on the face of that.

    Know anything about Claypoles :facepalm::D

    No, it wasn't. Just that you raised the point about me not being bothered, where clearly it isn't something you're keen on doing yourself. I tried to help people with a bargain. If I hadn't already bought one of these at full price, I'd have had one myself. If all you want to do is get vinegary with someone for helping, go do one. You simply couldn't be arsed to read the thread or the product description or any product reviews.

    Now, I really am done on the subject. I've got better things to be getting in with.

    Top brand, highly reliable, well made and have a great finish. I have the S2R Baton II and its just a belting torch.....as this one will be. The R is the rechargeable version and the torch will come with an 18650 battery too......a lot of brands don’t supply the batteries.
