I take a detailed look at the latest “tactical style” torch from Olight; The M2R features a dual press base switch plus side switch. Magnetic base and charging with all 18650 cells.
This is the first model released in the new Warrior series. I find out how it stacks up and where it could be improved.
Available in CW/NW versions (CW reviewed here)

Olight M2R Warrior LED Tactical Flashlight
The M2R is our brand new rechargeable dual switch LED tactical flashlight. This light is equipped with the latest XHP35 HD LED powered by a single high discharge rate 18650 battery with an output range of 1 to 1,500 lumens. The M2R features a quiet tail switch with minimal noise when being turned on for maximum concealability.
The light can magnetically charge directly through the tail switch making this the most innovative tail switch design since the birth of the tactical flashlight.
The side switch has a similar operation as the OLIGHT S series flashlights, while the tail switch can be switched between standard and enhanced tactical operation mode, allowing the user to access turbo or strobe mode with a single click. Also with its comfortable grip, durable stainless steel tail switch, and dual direction pocket clip, the M2R is the perfect tactical light to carry with you on any adventure.
