We’ve extensively reviewed the Warrior 3 previously, so in this post I’m only going to be looking at the differences between the two models.
The beam quality is the same as the Warrior 3 and again have a look at the Warrior 3 review to read our thoughts in relation to this.
Differences Between Models
The Warrior 3S has a proximity sensor that previous version doesn’t have.
The proximity sensor detects nearby obstructions and automatically dims the higher output modes when this happens, thus reducing the risk of it overheating and causing a fire.
If the blockage continues for more than 60 seconds, then the light will switch off.
The sensor can be disabled by rapidly double clicking the side switch within 5 seconds after the automatic dimming, then the brightness will return to the original level.
Turning the torch off will reactivate the proximity sensor.
The Warrior 3S features a less aggressive strike bezel than the Warrior 3.
This makes it a lot more comfortable to carry.
Conclusion & Exclusive Offer
So these are the only differences between the two models.
The proximity sensor is a very useful safety feature that could potentially prevent dangerous situations.
I found the bezel on the original Warrior 3 to be very uncomfortable… I normally like to clip my torch to my cargo trouser pocket and whenever I would go to get it out, the harsh bezel would dig uncomfortably into my skin – the softer bezel on the Warrior 3S is much more comfortable.
To be honest, if I was going to change anything on the Warrior 3, it would be what has been changed for the Warrior 3S and I would definitely go out and buy the new version over the old one.
