The S1R Batton II is controlled by a single power and mode button. One click turns the torch off and on. Holding down the button whilst the torch is on will navigate through the available brightness modes. The S1R Baton II remembers your previous brightness selection for the next time it is used.
Turbo mode can be turned on with two quick clicks of the power button. Turbo mode is available for 1.5 minutes, after which the brightness will decrease to prevent the torch from overheating. It is important to note that on turbo mode, the end of the torch can become quite hot.
Three quick clicks of the power button will engage the strobe function, which is also known as an SOS mode that can attract attention, if needed. This mode is disengaged when you turn off the torch, and it will return to a regular beam when you next turn it on.
The moonlight mode, which provides a light glow, can be turned on with a long hold of the power button when the torch is off.
There is also a convenient lock function that can be engaged by holding the power button down for approximately 2 seconds when the torch is off. This will prevent the flashlight from accidentally turning on when in your pocket and bag, which could drain your battery.
