ThruNite Archer 2A V3 vs Olight S1R Baton II Mini Torch

Analysis:

The ThruNite Archer 2A V3 is a great Standard Flashlight for its $24 asking price.

The Olight S1R Baton II Mini Torch, however, is merely passable at its $64 price point. If you're considering buying a Standard Flashlight in the $75 range, you might want to check out some of its competitors.

Two highly trusted sources that perform well-thought-out in-depth testing consider the ThruNite Archer 2A V3 to be a great product - it earned the "Top Pick" title from Wirecutter (NYTimes) and "Best baton-style flashlight" from CNET in their respective Standard Flashlight roundups, which is a good indication of it being a notable product.

Taking a look at the Olight S1R Baton II Mini Torch, we found that it hasn't managed to perform well enough to earn a spot in any Standard Flashlight roundups done by sources that conduct their own, high-quality, hands-on testing. That alone makes it difficult to recommend.

Lastly, we wanted to do a direct ThruNite Archer 2A V3 vs. Olight S1R Baton II Mini Torch comparison of their review performance, but were unable to find any review ratings of the Olight S1R Baton II Mini Torch.

We nevertheless pitted the ThruNite Archer 2A V3 against other Standard Flashlights on the market and found that it, on average, performed worse than its competitors - it earned a review average of 6.0 out of 10, compared to the 7.7 review average of Standard Flashlights in general.
