High output will run at 1200 lumens for 3 minutes before dropping down to 600 lumens with an additional run time of 41 minutes – this is to prevent the LED from overheating, it will then drop down to 120 lumens, with a further run time of 25 minutes.

Key Features

1. Beam Quality

Excellent beam quality as will all the Olight torches that I’ve tested.

The UV light is useful in a variety of settings, from detecting things such as pet urine stains to fake bank notes.

2. Charging

Charging occurs via Olight’s signature magnetic charging cable – the magnet is strong enough to easily attract the charging base by moving the tail of the torch close to the charging pad.

There is a standard USB on the other end that can be used with any USB plug or portable battery.

The magnetic pad on the cable has a charging light next to it that lights up red when charging and green once fully charged and it takes 3.1 hours to fully charge the battery from flat.

3. Power Button & Modes

The power button is located on the side of the torch and is slightly raised, making it very easy to locate – even in the dark.

A single short press switches the torch on and another single short press switches it off.

To cycle through the modes, switch the torch on and then hold down the power button – this will cycle through modes 2-4 (600 – 120 – 15 lumens).

Double tap the power button while the torch is on will activate level 1 (1200/600/120 lumens).

Level 5 (2 lumens, moonlight mode) is achieved by holding down the power button for one second, while the torch is off.

There is also a strobe mode which can be triggered by triple tapping the power button.

Double tapping the power button while the torch is off will activate the UV light.

To lock the torch the power button should be pressed for 1-2 seconds while the torch is off, the process should be repeated to unlock it again.

The Seeker 4 Mini also features a battery level indicator:

  ● Green: >60% battery power

  ● Orange: 10-60% battery power

  ● Red: <10% battery power

4. Body

The body has a textured pattern that gives a very firm grip – even if your hands are wet, you won’t find the torch slipping.


The Olight Seeker 4 Mini is a very compact, yet powerful EDC torch that belies its size.

A great little backup torch that will hardly take up any space in your backpack or pocket.

I hope you’ve found this review useful.

From a long time I was waiting for combination of a cool white and UV lights in a single EDC flashlight. The technical parameters of the Seeker 4 mini are excellent for its size and battery (Li-Ion 18340). SO, I have placed and order and wait to test the torch in real conditions.

I consider Seeker 4 mini as an improved version of Baton 3. The size of Seeker 4 mini is slightly bigger than Baton 3 but it is almost 2 times heavier. There are 2 essential points. The battery is 18340 (vs 16350) which gives more power, i.e. brightness and runtime. The addition of UV light is great and useful in many situations. For me, the Seeker 4 mini is/will be a backup light during my hiking and other outdoor activities.

Love the mini seeker 4, all the colours so far have looked great ... But that blue though 👌 Being able to flip between UV and the normal torch is great,I have also found myself using the UV function more than i ever thought I would😂🫣

Seeker Mini is a great addition to the collection, compact, powerful and with a good light spread. Having the additional UV function is also handy!

I like the different modes available and the addition of a UV light looks fun! Waterproof is an added bonus.

Awesome little compact torch that has now become my most carried and i fits perfect in the Olight pouch. The UV aspect is so much fun with the kids as they have alot of glow in the dark stuff and they think its magic that it charges everything instantly

This a very pocketable torch with a good light spread. The smaller size vs the Seeker Pro and the addition of the UV is handy, making it a very useful carry. Would like to see Orange and Purple versions released in the future to satisfy my collection

Great little torch - the switch between UV and normal torch is such a great idea. And that blue is 🔥😀

I really like the Seeker 4 mini because of its size, especially with the options for cool white and neutral white LED. It's a unique torch for sure!

That UV emitter is a great addition when added to all the usual benefits of the Seeker range. Powerful, compact and a long lasting battery with simple readout to know the state of charge, surely the perfect little backup for keeping in the car or throwing in a bag for a trip away.
