Olight Quality

If you are not familiar with Olight, they are a tactical flashlight manufacturer that builds high-end flashlights at a good price.  They have great charging platforms and have mounts to put lights on guns with pressure switches.

Olight is not a cheap knockoff brand.  These lights are backed by a 5-year warranty and promise.  They take care of their customers and have flash sales often.  They will advertise the flash sale well in advance so you know what is coming and at what price.  Our experience with Olight has been fantastic overall and we believe yours will be also.  If for any reason it is not, we want to know about it!

Olight i5T EOS CU

The Olight i5T EOS CU is an everyday carry sized light that is powerful for its size.  It is powered by a single AA battery and delivers a max output of 300 lumens with a max throw of 60 meters.  This light is operated by a tail switch only.  The user can operate momentary on and quick mode shifting (15/300 lumens) with a press or hold of that button.  The dual direction pocket clip makes it convenient to carry the flashlight in a pocket or attach to a hat brim or backpack strap for a hands-free experience. With a lanyard hole, the clip can accept a 1.5mm diameter lanyard cord.

The Olight 15T hits me as the perfect bug-out bad light.  Straight out of the box, the light is vacuum-packed and ready to be packed away for some time or used right away.  The fact that it uses an AA battery for power can be a plus or negative pending how you use the light.  In emergency situations, it is easier to find an AA battery than find a power outlet to charge the light.

This is an excellent close-range light.  Perfect for following a trail or scoping out a building.  When you get out much past 100 feet, the light is fairly faded compared to the others in the video.

This light is not overly heavy, but it not the lightest flashlight we have ever used.  It could be mounted to the bill of a baseball cap, although we feel you would know it is there.

Warrior X Pro

The Warrior X Pro is the upgraded version of Olight’s revolutionary Warrior X.  The Pro version uses a 5000mAh 21700 lithium battery rather than the 18650 found in the Warrior X.  The Warrior X Pro produces 2,250 lumens for up to 600 meters of throw.  When the Warrior X Pro is low on battery, the flashlight will start to vibrate.  The closer the vibrations become, the less battery you have remaining.  To aid in charging, the Warrior X pro charges at 2A current for 100% faster charging than Warrior X.

The Warrior X Pro is a heavy-duty built light with an IPX8-rated aluminum-alloy body and fully tested and guaranteed to endure a harsh 3-meter drop test.

The Warrior X Pro features a redesigned raised tail switch that allows for easy changes between high and low beams.  This is a tactical light that is ready to do the work needed if asked.

Our recommendation for this light is to use it beyond 30 feet as the light is so concentrated that it will fade out items at a distance under 30 feet.  This light will throw to 600 meters and it works best when used at longer ranges, in our opinion.

M2R Pro Warrior

M2R Pro Warrior is the newest version of OLIGHT two-button straight tactical flashlight.  This light was upgraded with a single 5000mAh 21700 rechargeable lithium battery and TIR lens for incredibly uniform light. The M2R Pro Warrior has a maximum output of 1800 lumens and a throw distance of 300 meters. The Included MCC will USB at 2A current.

The M2R Pro Warrior was built as a tactical light with an aggressive strike bezel.  The light has six different modes; seven if you include the strobe function.  The light has a tail switch and a forward switch to operate the modes.  The light is simple to learn even with all the modes and functions.  The smooth switches and well thought out functions set this light apart from all the others who are trying to match this quality.

The M2R Pro Warrior works very well from 5 feet all the way out to 500 feet and beyond.  The TIR lens gives you a very consistent circle of light that is something none of my other much more expensive lights can produce.  This would be my preferred all-around light if I had to choose one.


The i3UV is an extremely compact ultraviolet flashlight. The small flashlight is powered by a single AAA battery.  The ultra-compact UV blacklight emits 395-nanometer wavelength and should not be shined in anyone’s eyes.  The i3UV can be carried along to detect invisible stains, find scorpions, confirm minerals, and check money.

While this UV light might not be for everyone, it is priced right.  Using the light around our home was educational as we thought many of our surfaces were clean.  That is simply not the case.  If you work in an area where you might collect a lot of small bills, the light is perfectly sized for checking money.  While the light does work for finding stains, it is a bit small for full room observation.

If you live in an area where scorpions are around, this light is nice as it will light them up so they are easily seen!
