Just got my flashlight.... and its the new ODF30C with anodized blue accents and USB charging built in. Very interesting, not what i was expecting.
Also looks like an Olight now lol. Will post pics tomorrow if anyone is curious.

I just came here to find out what is going on with that, as well. I thought maybe, that I might be getting too old and forgetful! : - ) Forgetting what it was, that I really ordered.

Haha yea its a nice surprise. When I took the flashlight out of the box I was a bit confused. But hey, free upgrade for us I suppose?

Yes, it's pretty nice. On the other hand though, it's one more thing to go wrong.
I have four, 4 bay battery chargers. Plus a pack full of batteries. I'm not a good example, of a buyer wanting to charge the battery, while it's still in the flashlight.
Their Lumintop orange O-ring, under the glass. Has changed as well.
I have a minor relationship with Lumintop, outside of Massdrop. So I'll be allright, and really don't mind much. But others may not feel the same way.
I have to wonder, how this could happen, without being notified, too. But maybe a production line switch-over, could not have been predicted. With enough accuracy, that far out. When the original deal was laid out?

Same, I have external chargers that I'd rather use cause I trust them more, but the USB comes in handy for if i ever take the light with me on a camping trip or something, charge via the car or a battery pack.
I wonder if the spare O-rings included are in a different color, I havent looked at anything in the box other than the light itself lol.

The two spare O-rings are black, and both are sized for the tail-cap area only.
Another thing. The lanyard normally comes in an orange color. This one is black. Which I prefer.
Here is a link, to a very good video review of the ODF30 model, done by Charles. If anyone would like to take a look at that?
undefined Also while playing around with getting the moonlight mode to come on. I accidentally programmed it into 'momentary' mode. Which was cool.
I didn't know that was an option? I don't think that came up in any video review, either? That program, allowed the light to only shine when the button was being pressed. That will come in handy, and save battery life. 👍
