The Olight M1T Raider is a single tail switch tactical hand torch and is capable of 500 lumens output on the high setting using a 16340 (RCR123A) lithium-ion rechargeable battery (not included) or a CR123A non-rechargeable battery (included). The output drops down to 300 lumens after 5 minutes constant use to prevent the LED from overheating.
The Luminus SST40 CW LED combined with an TIR optic lens produces a smooth beam with a central hot spot and an even spill beam for a good coverage of light and can reach up to a maximum of 97 metres beam range.
Measuring only 91 mm in length, the M1T is the perfect palm size and allows you to easily reach the tail switch with your thumb while it sits comfortably in your hand. It also makes it ideal to slip in a coat pocket when going out dog walking or to the pub at night and easily fits in a handbag or backpack for everyday carry.
Designed for simple use, the M1T only has two settings of low and high that are controlled with the tail switch that provides smooth, crisp operation. Soft pressing the button allows for momentary light output that turns off when you release the switch and soft pressing in quick succession changes the brightness from low to high.
Fully press the button until a click is heard once you have selected low or high with a soft presses, or alternatively when you first fully turn the torch on it will come on in low and then if you quickly turn it fully off and on again within 2 seconds it will come on in high. If you turn it off and on again after 2 seconds has passed the light will default back to the low output.
The 5 lumen low mode is perfect if you need a small amount of light without disturbing others and that is why it is default to come on first. It is useful for reading at night or finding the key hole in the dark.
The body has a unique knurling design with a dense double helix pattern that provides excellent no-slip grip and gives the M1T a stylish look. The detachable dual directional pocket clip can be attached to clothing or a backpack easily from both sides and has been upgraded to a wider clamp and body to produce a sturdier clip and attachment point. The durable lanyard with an adjustable toggle provides extra security when you are carrying the torch in your hand.
