The Olight Warrior X is a rechargeable tactical torch and is a successor to the popular M22 and M23 torches, offering a similar body design as the M22 and M23 but in a more compact size and with better, deeper cut heat sinking fins for better temperature management due to the higher output. The Warrior X is named so as Olight have now been making the warrior series for 10 years, so this torch pays homage to that fact.
This torch is somewhat special in comparison to other tactical torches, as it is the world's first tactical torch to offer 2000 lumens output, combined with a 560 meter beam range and also withstands a 2 metre drop test all in one package.
It is also the world's first torch that can connect to a remote pressure switch magnetically (pressure switch not included), rather than having to unscrew the tail cap and replace it, which makes it much more efficient. And if all that wasn't enough already, the warrior X is also the world's first tactical torch to feature a low battery level warning function in the form of a subtle vibration within the torch, rather than a light, making it much more stealthy.
The low power vibration feature will notify you at the following power levels:
Power ≤30% - vibrate once every 5 minutes
Power ≤10% - vibrate once per minute
Power ≤5% - vibrate six times per minute
The included customised Olight 18650 3000 mAh 15 A HDC lithium-ion battery is recharged inside the torch using the included magnetic charging cable. Simply connect the magnet to the base of the M2R and plug the USB end into a computer or suitable adaptor. The charging light on the cable with go red while charging is in progress and turn green once charging has completed.
The tactical tail switch is a quiet press button with minimal noise for tactical purposes and can be used in two modes; either standard mode or tactical mode. The torch default setting is standard and to switch to tactical you deep press the tail switch and while holding in down you unscrew the tail cap and then tighten it back up again.
In standard mode the tail switch will provide constant 300 lumens illumination with a quick soft press, or momentary 300 lumens illumination with a half press and hold. Standard mode will also provide constant 2000 lumens illumination with a quick deep press or momentary 2000 lumens illumination with a deep press and hold. In tactical mode it will provide momentary 2000 lumens illumination with a soft press and hold, or momentary strobe with a deep press.
A tactical aluminium anti-roll ring comes fitted on the torch, along with a pocket clip that is useful for attaching the torch to a pocket or clothing when not in use, however if you aren't bothered about using the pocket clip, you can remove the aluminium anti-roll ring and pocket clip and put the included silicone tactical grip ring in it's place. Unscrew the tail cap, lift off the metal ring, pop off the pocket clip and then simply slide the silicone grip over the end with the wider side first and once fully pushed down screw the tail cap back on. The rubber ring provides a comfortable grip making operation of the tail switch easy.
Also included for easy carry is a sturdy nylon holster with the same design as the earlier series in the sense that the tail cap sticks out the top and a hole is cut out the bottom so that the light can quickly be used within the holster if required. What makes this holster slightly different though is the belt loops that allow for horizontal mounting of the holster on a belt. This design means the torch sits horizontally on your waist, which makes it more comfortable when bending over or squatting down, as it doesn't dig in the same way a vertically mounted holster would.
The aluminium alloy is two times as thick compared to other tactical torches and the lens is made from 3 mm thick tempered glass, which is why the Warrior X easily withstands the 2 m drop test, and as with most Olight torches, it also has an IPX8 waterproof rating.
